Akkadians long ago, conquered Sumer, took control.
Sargon led his armies in the chariots they roll.
By the Euphrates River,
By the Euphrates River,
By the Euphrates River,
By the Euphrates River.
By the Persian Gulf is where they found
Ancient ruins underground.
Archeologists did lots of excavation down
By the Euphrates River,
By the Euphrates River,
By the Euphrates River,
By the Euphrates River.
Both the Euphrates River and the Tigris River used to flood,
Bringing lots of fertile mud.
But the problem was that the water washed away the crops.
Dams and levies made it stop,
When it was dry they would irrigate.
Fighting over water led to war between the city-states.
Cuneiform is ancient writing,
That tells that Sumer’s city-states were always fighting.
They were the first civilization in Mesopotamia.
Then came the Akkadians,
Who started empire-mania.
