Music Monday –Literally (The Viking Song) by Horrible Histories

musicmonday

Music Monday is a meme created and hosted by Drew@TheTattooedBookGeek as an opportunity to share a favourite music video.

This week I’m sharing a video from the hilarious Horrible Histories, a multi-BAFTA award winning TV show. If you haven’t seen the TV show it’s based on Terry Deary’s very funny children’s bookstelling the disgusting and dangerous things that people used to do to one another” through the ages.  The TV show carries on from the books, bringing it all to life through sketches and songs and this is one of my favourites.

It was the summer of 793
When we sailed across the Great North Sea
Comets crossed the skies that night
Must have known something wasn’t right
We arrived upon your English shore
And you offered friendship
But we wanted more
Yeah, so much more!

We’re tearing up this place tonight
Literally!
We’re gonna set this sleepy town alight
Literally!
We’ll kill and steal and burn and drink
‘Cause us Vikings don’t care what you think
Woah oh oh!

Let me in, won’t you please
We’re here to raid your monasteries
We’re primed and ready to attack
And we love how monks just don’t fight back
You’ll die or become a slave to me
Though our slaves often get chucked up in the sea
If the boat’s heavy! Yeah, yeah!

You’re gonna lose your head, my friend
Literally!
We’re gonna get you in the end
Literally!
And I’ll drink a toast from your skull
‘Cause we’re Vikings and that’s how we roll!

(Play that axe, Ragnor!)

We’re gonna paint the whole town red
Literally!
With the blood of the dead
Literally!
We’ll take everything that you own
And get back on our ship, and go back home
Woah, oh oh!

We’re going home
Woah, oh oh!
We’re going home
Woah, oh oh!
We are going home
Woah, oh oh!
We are going home
Woah, oh oh!
