Lyrics

Five,
The Glorious Five,
They saved Oleg from being real sore,
Stood up to the bandits and showed them what for,
Our love for them now, ain’t hard to explain,
The heroes of Restov, the glorious five!

They saw that the people were shakin,
They saw the people’s lament,
And they saw the bandits were takin,
Every fur and gold and leaving just bits,
So they said “you can’t do that to our people”!"
“You can’t, crush them under your heel!”

They quickly fought back,
And in five seconds flat,
Showed those bandits who really was boss.

They saved Oleg from being real sore,
Stood up to the bandits and showed them what for,
Our love for them now, ain’t hard to explain,
The heroes of Restov, the glorious five!

Now here is what separates heroes from common folk like you and I.
The glorious five,
Did it for glory,
They saved many lives,
The bandits ran and boy did they hide.
They saved the outpost.
They saved one and all.
The glorious five,
They saved many lives,
So long are the bandits, good riddance, good bye.

They saved Oleg from being real sore,
Stood up to the bandits and showed them what for,
Our love for them now, ain’t hard to explain,
The heroes of Restov, the glorious five!
