The Viking Song


Lyrics: Gunnbjorn Gunnarsson            
Music: The Lumberjack Song by Terry Jones, Michael Palin, and Fred Tomlinson



Chorus:
I'm a Viking, and I'm OK;
I rape and pillage for my pay!
Verses:
We chop down trees, we build long ships,
We sail across the sea;
We're not too keen on shopping,
So we practice robbery!

We chop down doors, we knock down walls,
We burn the churches down;
We put on funny helmets
To party in your town!

We like the Franks, they got nice things;
We like to rob them blind.
Their women are so willing
To help a man unwind!

The Saxons are no fun at all,
They like to bitch and moan.
They got this king named Alfred
Who pays us to stay home.

When I get home, I kiss the wife
And give the dog a bone.
(spoken) ...or have I got that backwards?

Lyrics © 1987 Michael S. Rosecrans
