ELO, Lyrics:
The Battle of Marston Moor (July 2nd, 1644)

My Lord King,
You stoop to betray your own people,
And even in the eyes of God,
Do you not relent?
I am therefore bound by no other course
I shall raise an army;
Together we will march against you and your kind,
And every born man will fight to regain his own freedom,
And cleanse his wretched soul.

Roy Wood

From the 1972 LP, No Answer.
