Quite a dramatic song about the Vikings and the less publicized aspect of their lives. You can watch the video to see if it suits your requirements, and download the voice mp3, the backing track mp3, the lyrics and the sheet music for the song.

The lyrics are as follows

They sailed in their long boats from far across the seas
What were they called? The Vikings
From A D seven hundred for four centuries
What were they called? The Vikings
They robbed all the villages took all that they could take
They burned and they pillaged and they caused so much heartache
But if you think that’s all they did you’re making a mistake
What were they called? The Vikings

For fishing exploring and farming they were known
What were they called? The Vikings
In England King Canute and Harold reached the throne
What were they called? The Vikings
We see them as fighting men but they were so much more
Their Viking Gods like Thor and Odin gods we can’t ignore
And when they reached the end in burning ships they left the shore
What were the called? The Vikings
