THE VIKING SONG Chorus: Yo-ho, yo-ho, a Viking’s life for me! 1. We live in Scandinavia And sail o’er many seas; We raid and trade in many lands And sometimes settle in these! Chorus: Yo-ho, yo-ho, a Viking’s life for me!
2. We sail in ships with dragon heads; Longhouses are our homes; We make good armor and jewelry And use Futhark to write poems! Chorus: Yo-ho, yo-ho, a Viking’s life for me!
3. Erik the Red found Greenland And named it to deceive; Leif, his son, found America Around 1,000 A.D.!
Chorus: Yo-ho, yo-ho, a Viking’s life for me! Yo-ho, yo-ho, a Viking’s life for me! Yo-ho, yo-ho, a Viking’s life for me
