Olaf Was A Viking Raider

Written by Yarmez, may all the gods forgive him.


Olaf was a Viking raider with the Danish fleet

Olaf was a Viking raider with the Danish fleet

Olaf was a Viking raider with the Danish fleet

And he ain't gonna raid no more


CHORUS

By the gods what a terrible way to die

When you're facing Draum berserkers

And you don't know how to fight

By the gods what a terrible way to die

And he ain't gonna raid no more


He went to Scandinavia to join the Danish lines

He went to Scandinavia to join the Danish lines

He went to Scandinavia to join the Danish lines

And he ain't gonna raid no more


Chorus


They scraped him off his Dane-axe like a blob of strawberry jam

They scraped him off his Dane-axe like a blob of strawberry jam

They scraped him off his Dane-axe like a blob of strawberry jam

And he ain't gonna raid no more


Chorus


They put him in a longboat but the tide just brought him back

They put him in a longboat but the tide just brought him back

They put him in a longboat but the tide just brought him back

And he ain't gonna raid no more


Chorus


They put him in a wooden bowl and sent him home to mum

They put him in a wooden bowl and sent him home to mum

They put him in a wooden bowl and sent him home to mum

And he ain't gonna raid no more


Chorus


She put him as a centre piece for all the world to see

She put him as a centre piece for all the world to see

She put him as a centre piece for all the world to see

And he ain't gonna raid no more


Chorus


She put him in the pottage when the Hersir came to tea

She put him in the pottage when the Hersir came to tea

She put him in the pottage when the Hersir came to tea

And he ain't gonna raid no more


Chorus


The Hersir tried to eat him but he only threw him up

The Hersir tried to eat him but he only threw him up

The Hersir tried to eat him but he only threw him up

And he ain't gonna raid no more


Chorus


She swept him in the corner but the dog just tried his turn

She swept him in the corner but the dog just tried his turn

She swept him in the corner but the dog just tried his turn

And he ain't gonna raid no more


Chorus


He took him to the garden and he buried him quite deep

He took him to the garden and he buried him quite deep

He took him to the garden and he buried him quite deep

And he ain't gonna raid no more


Chorus


Many years passed but then time-team dug him up

Many years passed but then time-team dug him up

Many years passed but then time-team dug him up

And he ain't gonna raid no more


Chorus


Now he is a centrepiece for London's great museums

Now he is a centrepiece for London's great museums

Now he is a centrepiece for London's great museums

And he ain't gonna raid no more
