Hail to the conquerin hero
There he goes with the girl he stole from me
Hail to the conquerin hero
Look at him, he s as proud as he can be
He may think he s won the prize
But he doesn t realize
I m not givin her up so easily

Hail to the conquerin hero
I suppose he ll be kissin her tonight
Three cheers for the conquerin hero
Marchin off with my baby just for spite
While he is makin with romance
I ll be planning an advance
I m not givin her up without a fight

For now I may retreat but I won t admit defeat
I ll show that guy I m just as smart
Yeah, all s fair in love and war so I ll even up the score
I ll decorate him with a broken heart

Down with the conquerin hero
Pretty soon I ll be ready to attack
I ll conquer the conquerin hero
When I do, then I ll get my baby back
So he thinks the battle s done
But the battle s just begun
I ll be winnin her back, just wait and see
And then that conquerin hero is gonna be me
