Hannibal's life was centred on a mission - Rome. This song is about the epic journey he made across the Alps into Italy, together with 104,000 men, horses and 37 elephants.

Lyrics

You gotta head for those mountains Rome’s on your mind
You gotta head for those mountains It’s a tough one
You got the people there on your side
You gotta head for those mountains there’s an army there with you
You gotta keep on right up that path
It’s cold up there where you’re after
No map to guide you through there ain’t no woman gonna comfort you
But you got your guide and your army there with you
You gotta be strong you gotta keep on
Cos Rome’s there on your mind
You’ve been through Spain you’ve been through France
You keep on up on up the mountain Rome’s on your mind
It’s on the other side, it’s on the other side
Walking with the elephants down, walking with the elephants down
You’ve got your army there with you now, look at the sunshine look at the green hills
You’re coming down you’ve got your army there with you
Rome’s there down on the other side
