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
Judgment 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
Invaders pillaging
Invaders looting

Set ablaze the campfires alert, I know lucky other men, from inland
Warning must be given there's not enough men here, for a stand
The Vikings are too many much too powerful to take, on our own
We must have 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
Invaders fighting
Invaders marauding

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
Invaders raping
Invaders plundering
