No-one to fight with, left all alone,
Iíve had to sit out- itís time to give up this Throne!
Then back in armor; my fighting day isnít through.
Iíve time to make up for, while watching you play,
Iíve had to sit idle, no chance to wade in the fray.
Now back to armor; my fighting day isnít through.
Dust off my shield, Iíll find the field,
War seasonís near- my time of year!
Iíve months of fights missed left to make upóBelieve me!
So, one-twenty battles, the last Geoffrey War,
Iíll be back in practice, so come out to play once more.
Iím back in armor; my fighting day isnít through.
