Cinco De Mayo
The fifth day of May
To all Mexicans
A very special day
It celebrates the Mexican's Armies
Unlikely victory over France
The Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862
Napoleon's grab for Mexican lands
At the time of this battle
France's Army was considered the World's best
Led by Napoleon
It was hell-bent on achieving World conquest
An 8,000 strong French Army
Marched to Puebla
To cause misery
Yet it was the 4,000 Pueblans
Who secured the victory
Mexicans celebrate this great triumph
With fun fiesta and loud cheers
The French Army had not been defeated previously
For at least 50 years
By defeating a much better equipped Army
The Mexican soldiers were outnumbered by man steel and horse
They ensured there would never be an attack
On a country of the Americas
By any other European military force
Although their comrades had died
The Mexican army were hungry
Their lips "muy seco"
The soldiers cried "Ole!"
As the mariachi sang
Feliz Cinco De Mayo! Viva Mexico!
