 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

I watch the sky turning black 
And know the time is fast approaching 
My clan they all look to me 
I turn away, I face the ocean 
In the dark I see a fleet of long-ships on the horizon 
Again the Vikings come, to this land they are a poison

Archers ready your bows, swordsmen ready your blades 
Gods be with us this night, as we stop this barbarian raids 
Their boats now pulled to shore 
Scrawny men pour forth from the hull 
Their faces look ailing and drawn 
But their minds are bent on the cull

On they come, these viking raiders, pale and grey 
With withered bodies and swords to slay 
Charging forth, from filthy ships, towards our line 

But we are butchers and they are our swine

By ready men, they fast approach, the time is here
Stand firm at your line and show to fear 
From the north, this army comes, to raid our lands 
But instead tonight they will die by Gaelic hands

I give the call to attack, and we charge towards the Vikings 
Arrows scream over head, and begin this night of killing 
I watch as the armies collide, flesh and bone gets torn asunder 
So many of my warriors die, as they stop viking plunder

In the distance I see, their leader so wretched and vile 
Leading his men with pride, I see his weakness and I smile 
Caught up in his stupor of greed, I slice his head from his neck 
His cowardly men run away, victory is ours this day
