THE BRAGGING SONG

Come drink with me my brothers and brag on tales of old
Let mead flow like water til the embers all are cold
Our hearts to despondency we never will submit
We live and die by Odinís will and sae will we yet

- - - - - -
Chorus:
sae will we yet, oh and sae will we yet
We live and die by Odinís will and sae will we yet!
- - - - - -

Oh our women are the finest the world has ever known
Our children turn to warriors, our enemies to bones
Our hammers raised in anger bring ruin where they hit
We live and die by Odinís will and sae will we yet

(chorus)

Take my sword from out its scabbard and my axe from off the wall
Weíre aye the first to battle when we hear the ravenís call
The more there is to plunder the richer we will get
We live and die by Odinís will and sae will we yet

(chorus)

Give us meat to fill our bellies and mead to fill our heads
And guile to fool our enemies and swords to make them dead
When we come in to Valhalla with the bravest we will sit
We live and die by Odin's will and sae will we yet

(chorus)

(1st verse repeats)

(chorus twice to end)
