It's off to war we go...
Hi-Ho, Hi-Ho, Hi-Ho.
Hi-Ho, Hi-Ho, Hi-Ho.
The "Hi-Ho" part is especially catchy!
You can also sing it until you run out of breath or your spouse or room-mate punches you in the head, whichever comes first.

it sounds like a song that dwarves were singing in Snowhite and the seven dwarves, little changed to suit current needs
that is just a guess, maybe i am waaaay of...

I knew that I was merely pointing out that he stole it with out actualy saying he stole it. So he could come back with some witty remark and we could have an exchange of jokes about it... but now you've ruined it :P

The songs are completely different! Any well-brought up person of good taste would know that.
The dwarves song is naturally about work. As surely as the rest of us sing ourselves to the office, a joyous tune springs to the lips of those little fellows as they march off to the mines to earn their daily bread. But the song posted above is clearly a call to battle as can be read in the spirited, but oh so subtle lyrics.
The Erehwon War Song is derived from ancient chants of the people of Erehwon. The exact meaning of the words has been lost in the mists of time. SnowWhite is just a fairy tale. (Do you really think that a beautiful gal like that would waste her youth on a bunch of little perverted cartoon characters?).
Adopting a more martial war song, e.g.
"Proudly the note of the trumpet is sounding,
Loudly the war cries arise on the gale..." would have been trite and unoriginal. Instead, when going to war, Erehwon sings a song more in keeping with the deadly serious and realistic nature of making war in SimCountry. Anyway, shouting ABU! every few minutes makes everyone around you think you have a tic or maybe a really bad allergy.

I know for a fact you are all wrong. That song was written by a little known composer back in the 14th century by the name Heinrich Von Dildoberg of Erehwon. He composed it while on his way to a rendezvous with the Duchess of Slutenfield. He was running late that night and took a shortcut through the Erehwonian Black Forest and got lost. The unfortunate chap died of exposure. Legend has it a banshee has been wailing a similar tune in that very forest. Walt Disney heard of this miracle and encountered this banshee on a visit there in the early 1900s. He shamelessly, like so many music industry rappers today, sampled it and put the haunting refrain on a children's movie of all things. Just a story of another hardworking dildo planning to screw a slutenfield, only to end up exposing himself in some dark place, while perverted midgets mock his work in the name of family entertainment. Sounds a bit like Pee Wee Herman's life.
