Lyrics

Endless Riches flooded our homeland
Once wealth dried up
We sailed south
The promise of silver
The promise of gold
The prospect of fame
Made us leave home

Making an allegiance to a foreign enemy
The emperor Basil heard of our ferocity
Keeping our plunder collecting our wage
A royal guard thousands of mercenaries
Mighty in stature afraid not of fire afraid not of steel
Ever fearless 6000 men axes in hand
Expanding an empire no one is safe from Byzantine
Conquering land from Syria to Sicily

Making an allegiance to a foreign enemy
The emperor Basil heard of our ferocity
Keeping our plunder collecting our wage
A royal guard thousands of mercenaries

Endless Riches flooded our homeland
Once wealth dried up
We sailed south
The promise of silver
The promise of gold
The prospect of fame
Made us leave home
Break down
Destroyer of all who dare oppose us
Led by Harald to countless victories
Purging Europe of non-Christian entities
Burning cities bathing in the blood of Islam
Fierce and loyal we sail across the sea in search of gold
Silver and jewels raping pillaging killing everyone
Stand up and fight with sword and shield and spear and axe in hand
