A Tribute to Uday Singh

Oh! Singh the brave son of India
And the Lion of the United States
Fought bravely and courageously
And gave up your life in best.

Oh! The gunner of my troops
And runner to the land of foe
Served to the nation with faith
Without pomp or show.

Oh! Martyr, you lived for the people
And sacrificed for them
Till the stars may twinkle
You remain in the hearts of men.

Oh! A great warrior of my country
You died in the distant desert sand
Your ashes are here to witness
In the soil of my beautiful land.
Oh! A brave soldier of my native land.
