I have always wanted to know what the Zulu Warrior's are saying in their song "The Warriors Chant" from the film Zulu. (It’s a long shot but can anybody roughly translate)

I have wondered what they are saying. At the Battle of the Alamo, the Mexican Army' chanted a song relating to the taking of no prisoners.

In broad outline its a song of praise, its sung as a mark of respect to an oponent deamed worthy through combat. For a litteral translation Ken is probably the guy.
Been a while since Ive heard it, still sends shivers down the spine. Pity its fiction.
