Viking Song

Tune: “Jingle Bells

Sailing o’er the seas
In an open dragon ship,
Trying not to freeze,
Hoping we won’t tip,
Clash of swords goes ‘cling’
Making spirits bright,
What fun it is to sail and sing
A slaying song tonight!

CHORUS:
Oh….
Hack and slash, hack and slash
Laughing all the way,
Oh what fun it is to be
A berserker today,
Hack and slash, hack and slash
Laughing all the way,
Oh what fun it is to be
A berserker today!

A day or two ago
We thought we’d have a fight,
And soon the Valkyries
Were gathered on our right,
The fight was long and grim,
Misfortune seemed our lot,
We broke into a battle hymn
But hoarse was all we got!

CHORUS

Now the ground is red,
Slay them while they’re young,
Crack an old foe’s head,
And sing this slaying song,
Just get yourself a sword,
Two-forty for the fray,
Then go and fight the enemy horde
Until they run away!

CHORUS
