Lyrics

I'll sing you one, oh,
Sword, axe and spear, oh,
What is your one-oh?

One we go to Lindisfarne and burn it to the ground, oh!
Two, two the Christian monks lying in their blood, oh...
Three, three, we're Vikings...
Four for the ships we sail in...
Five for the symbols on our shields...
Six for the Saxons that we've killed...
Seven for the wenches that we've raped...
Eight for the gold we've stolen...
Nine for the cities that we've sacked...
Ten for the mighty Odin...
Eleven for bright Valhalla...
Twelve for the gods in Asgard...
