Away in Lombardy

Army of Italy (France) - Wikipedia

Away in Lombardy
On a simple camp bed
The Little Corporal
Laid down his tired head.
The stars in the bright sky
Looked down where he lay
As General Bonaparte
Made plans for next day.

O little town of Austerlitz

Battle of Austerlitz - Wikipedia

O little town of Austerlitz, how still we see thee lie
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep the silent stars go by
Yet in thy dark streets shineth, the everlasting light
The hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee tonight.

For Napoleon’s Grand Army is gathered on this morn
The enemy has been defeated, their resistance is forlorn
O morning stars together, proclaim thy victory.
And praises sing to Napoleon, the maker of history.

Hark the herald courtiers sing

The Roi de Rome, son of Napoleon I -

Hark! The herald courtiers sing
Glory to the newborn King
Peace in Europe, a newborn child
France and Austria reconciled.
Joyful, all ye nations, cheer
Join the triumph of the heir
With the imperial host proclaim
The King of Rome is born today
Hark, the herald courtiers sing
Glory to the newborn King.

Jingle bells

Berezina-1812: the last “victory” of the French in Russia

Jingle bells, jingle bells
Boney ran away!
Oh what fun it is to see
Napoleon in his sleigh!

Jingle bells, jingle bells
Boney ran away!
Oh what fun it is to see
Napoleon in his sleigh!

We three kings

File:Declaration of victory after the Battle of Leipzig, 1813 (by Johann Peter Krafft).jpg

We three kings of Orient are
Fighting wars we traverse afar
Field and fountain, moor and mountain,
Kaiser, King, and Tsar.

Oh, Tsar of wonder, Tsar of night
Tsar with royal beauty bright
Westward leading, still proceeding
Guide us to the City of Light.

God rest ye merry, generals

 1814 Napoleon's First End Part II | Weapons and Warfare

God rest ye merry, generals
Let nothing you dismay.
For our almighty conqueror
Was vanquished on this day.
You’ve saved us all from Boney’s power
When he had gone astray –
O tidings of comfort and joy
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy!
