M-M-M-
Macedonia!

Set to the music of The Knack’s “My Sharona”. By HistoryTeachers.

Oooh, they’re marchin’, here they come,
In the sun
Armies of King Philip of Macedonia
Oooh, see the Greek army run
They gotta run
Defeated at the Battle of Chaeronea
Ended all the great
City-states:
Athens, Sparta, Thebes
Alex tried to unite
All to fight Persians in Asia Mi-i-nor
Whoo!
M-m-m-Macedonia!

Conquered Egypt, Palestine…and Syria
Led by Alexander of Macedonia
Beat the Persian infantry
Finally
Beat them at the Battle of Gaugamela
Conquering the East, and the West
Spreading culture of Greece and their beliefs
Architecture out to India and A-a-a-a-Asia
Whoo!
M-m-m-Macedonia!
M-m-m-Macedonia!

Hellenistic legacy, legacy
Greek ideas spread throughout Macedonia
Alex died and there were four
Kingdoms four:
Egypt, Syria, Pergamum and Macedonia
Rome would step it up
Take ‘em down
Run ‘em outta town
But they knew the Greeks
Were the peeps
With superior bods and mi-i-i-i-inds
Whoo!
M-m-m-Macedonia!

Mi-i-i-i-inds, whoo!
M-m-m-Macedonia!
M-m-m-Macedonia!
M-m-m-Macedonia!
M-m-m-Macedonia!
