Bound To Ride To Troy's Wall,
Heading For The Fight,
Heroes Immortality
Gods Will Never Know!

Day By Day, There's No Fear,
An Army On His Own,
Day By Day, There's No Fear,
Courage Has No Flaw!

Demigod with royal blood,
Master of the fight,
Demigod with royal blood,
Honour! Valour! Pride!

Year By Year, There's No Fear,
An Army On His Own,
Year By Year, There's No Fear!
He Can't Be A Pawn!!!

"The girl I've earned with my sword,
Rightfully is mine!
No fight! No word!
Till again mine!"

Demigod with royal blood,
Master of the fight,
Demigod with royal blood,
Not a step behind!

Leader of the Myrmidones,
No one defies,
Commander of the Myrmidones,
Only! He! Decides!

Trojans now they attack,
Full of courage fight,
No Achilles, No luck,
Table's turned, now changed side!

Patroclus, in place, he died,
Mourning mixed with rage!
Hector's brave, he won't hide,
Duellists on stage!!!

Crossing swords, the sound of steel,
"Victory Is Mine!"
Crossing swords, the sound of steel!
Hector's falling! Dying!!

Still his fury, he won't stop,
Still he's full of rage,
Still his fury, he won't stop!
The body desecrates!

Days pasS, his rage still,
No one dares his eyes,
Priamus, he comes, he'll kneel,
Begging, falling, cries!

"Hector's body on one side,
On the other bring your gold,
Hector's body on one side,
Go and do as I told."

Troy's gold collected all,
But not equal to hold,
Polyxena, princess'll talk,
Full of pride, though no sword

"Take my jewels, Take my ring,
There's no more to ask again,
Hold your rage and your greed,
Give us Hector, end this pain."

Achilles impressed of her,
Beauty and her pride,
Achilles in love with her,
Death is lying behind.

Back To War, There's No Fear,
An Army On His Own!
Back To War, There's No Fear,
Courage Has No Flaw!!!

But now he's in love with her,
On Ida secret meetings,
Now he's in love with her,
His heart is full of feelings

He's forgotten mother's words,
The prophecy, his flaw,
Pares watches, no swords,
No enemy he saw

An arrow on his heel, it burns,
Darkness falls around,
A poisoned arrow, he kneels;
Now lying on the ground.

I was gonna write a kind of criticizing comment here, but I felt bad :/

It's alright, was the comment in a nutshell. I really shouldn't post it.

This was really good.
I don't think I could ever keep up with the Iliad.
But I love the movie.

The movie it's nice, but it's different.
Aren't there any short versions in English?
Even here in Greece, most people have only read simplified shorter versions.
Personally I've read the full version only once as a child and then for years I was stuck with a certain short version. It was this certain version I had in mind when I was writing this and not the original.

Wow, this is excellent!! It's a great retelling of a great story. :) I love the way you repeat some rhymes to give it flow, and the lines are short, so it flows more like something spoken rather than read. Excellently done. :D

The English rendering-translation is lyrical or free?
