Poem converted to song about fighting Protoss

Joeyray's Bar
This is a revision "Hit em' hard and hit 'em fast".
The song uses a Spanish Gypsy scale in E, i.e. E F G# A B C D E.
The rhythm is three quarter notes followed by a triplet. I haven't
worked out the chorus chords yet, but the chords for the verses are:

Am - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -E - - - - - Esus4 -E - - - - - - Esus4
/ -- /-- /-- /// -- / -- / -- / -- /// -- / -- / -- / -- /// -- / -- / -- / -- ///
Am E Esus4 E Esus4
Dm Am Asus4 Am Asus4
Dm Am Asus4 Am Esus4 E


The Tal-Dareem are fighting-mad;
They just realized that they've been had.
Expect Guardians, Zealots, Stalkers,
Immortals, and Colossus walkers.

Dark Templars will try sneaking by.
Phoenixes and Voids will fill the sky.
Attack their Carriers with flights of three.
Take out any Warp Prisms you see.

Train more Marines and Marauders.
Quadruple the turrets and bunkers.
Have all your Vultures emplace their mines.
Overlap your Siege-Tank’s firing lines.

Plan for Reaper suicide runs;
Hit the Protoss flanks, target pylons.
Raynor’s Raiders troops will soon be back;
So make ready to counter-attack!

Get those Starports building Valkyries,
Battlecruisers, Vikings, and Banshees.
Add Science Vessels and Medevacs.
We’ll hit them with combined arms attacks.

Chorus
What matter's most: who's standing last.
So hit 'em hard and hit 'em fast.
When all the smoke and fallout clears,
The Protoss will be rubble and smears.
Ensure we're the ones left standing last.
Always hit 'em hard and hit 'em fast.
holy !@#$ is this a song you will publish on youtube?
Once again, you amaze me with your poetry.
I'm thinking about doing a version of this on youtube. I was thinking that this could be modified to fit the Panzerlied, the theme song of the German tank soldiers. There is a good clip on youtube from the old war movie The Battle of the Bulge where some troops sing this song at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8JDkdc246QQ. There are other clips that show old footage of WWII German tanks in combat with the song in the background.
