The Gauntlet Lyrics - Dropkick Murphys

Review The Song (5)



Well I just got back from a break in the fight
I was weighing in heavy but still feeling alright
all I hear in the distance - mines and shells
here come the sirens wailing another attack to be repelled

Do you think we're gonna make it?
I don't know unless we try
you could sit here scared to move
or we could take them by surprise
it's submission that they want
it's surrender that they need
when we're doing it their way
their aims will be achieved

They're gonna come when you're not ready
when you're not too well-prepared
they're gonna prey upon your weakness
no man's soul is ever spared

you've got to stand up, yeah, and fight them
show them what it's all about
this man is not for sale
there will be no backing down.

[Chorus:]
Stand up and fight and I'll stand up with you
We shall succeed,
Stand up and fight and I'll stand up with you

They won't get me, they won't get me
though they never cease to try
they won't get me, they won't get me
I would rather fight and die
they won't get me, they won't get me
well my friend will they get you?
when they get you, when they get you
tell me what you're gonna do?

Do you think we're gonna make it?
I don't know unless we try
you could sit here scared to move
or we could take them by surprise
it's submission that they want
it's surrender that they need
when we're doing it their way
their aims will be achieved.

They're gonna come when you're not ready
when you're not too well-prepared
they're gonna prey upon your weakness
no man's soul is ever spared
you've got to stand up, yeah, and fight them
show them what it's all about
this man is not for sale
there will be no backing down.

[Chorus: x2]
Stand up and fight and I'll stand up with you
We shall succeed
Stand up and fight and I'll stand up with you

A song for fighting to | Reviewer: Spike1point5 | 2/3/12

This is an excellent song. I play shinty for my University team (kind of the caveman equivalent of hockey. No pads, sticks go as high as you want) and before every match we tend to play this. Either that or Time to Go, This is Your Life



Is this about Vietnam? | Reviewer: Eric | 8/12/09

I was reading the lyrics, and it reminds me a lot of Vietnam. "They're gonna come when you're not too well prepared" = Guerilla tactics used by the Vietcong. Then the first stanza is obviously about warfare. And he also says "When we're doing it their way, their aims will be achieved" which is similar to how the US fought the war the way the Vietcong wanted us to and the US government ultimately withdrew the military from Vietnam.

a hit | Reviewer: johnny | 8/6/07

this song helps me when i wanna give up. once i was climbing a mountain and there was a thunderstorm right at the top. i thought i was gonna die. but i sang this song to myself during that storm and i made it out alive. it's also a hit! greatest song by the dropkicks besides take it or leave it, front seat, and eurotrash.



A classic | Reviewer: Jeff | 6/21/07

This song help me through some rough times, inspired me when i felt most useless and helped fight my corner when no hope was left and im sure it has for others. Its a brilliant song, dropkicks at their best and it deserves recognition.
