Over The Hills (Loki Version)

A few seasons ago Loki complained that we had too few songs of our own, so unthinkingly we allowed him to write a few new songs for us. When he revealed the dozen or so songs that he had written, we were somewhat surprised to find them all about him. This is the one that has stuck best.


There's twenty shillings on the drum
Loki where the hells it gone??
Now he's got cash he's gone to play
When over the hills and far away


CHORUS
O'er the hills that are a-flame
We told Loki never again
He drinks so much we can't obey
Over the hills and far awa


Loki really shouldn't drink
Because he never stops to think
of his head ache the following day
over the hills and far away


Chorus


Odin says that you'll do well
when your standing at the gates of hell
but hev'n-ward you'll always pray
though its over the hills and far away


Chorus


Loki's here and Loki's there
Lost his sword, without a prayer
so how will he keep the beasts at bay
over the hills and far away


Chorus


Loki has just sung a song
even though it didn't last long
he'll start again if we don't pay
over the hills and far away


Chorus


The story tellers tale is true
as he describes Loki's view
you'll all marvel at his display
over the hills and far away


Chorus


Loki, lord of all naught but drink
he will vomit in the sink
he'll try to lead us come-what-may
over the hills and far away


Chorus
