Longboats have been sighted and the evidence of war has begun
Many Nordic fighting men, their swords and shields gleam in the sun
Call to arms defend yourselves, get ready to stand and fight for your lives
Judgement day has come around so be prepared don't run stand your ground

They're coming in from the sea they've come, the enemy!
Beneath the blazing sun the battle has to be won

Set ablaze the campfires and alert the other men from inland
Warning must be given and there's not enough men here for a stand
The Vikings are too many, much too powerful to take on our own
We must bring reinforcements, we cannot fight this battle alone

They're coming over the hill, they've come to attack!
They're coming in for the kill, there's no turning back


Axes grind and maces clash as wounded fighters fall to the ground
Severed limbs and fatal woundings, bloody corpses lay all around
The smell of death and burning flesh, the battle weary fight to the end
The Saxons have been overpowered, victims of the mighty Norsemen

You'd better scatter and run, the battle's lost and not won
You'd better get away to fight another day
