A Viking Kidís Poem          A Viking Kidís Song MP3
Tune: ĄOh cara mama miaď, Neapolitan Canzonetta, before1816
(also used for the childrenīs song "My hat it has three corners"

Itís great to be a Viking kid,
For it is plain to see,
There are a hundred gods
That I can call to me.

There are protective bind runes
That mommy carved for me,
That I can fling at monsters,
And set them all to flee.

Odin watches me in sleep,
And Frigga hears my dreams,
I wake in Sunnaís warm embrace,
And play in Thorís great fields.

From Frey and Freyja I will learn,
Great Vanic mysteries,
And giants teach me 'bout the things
That were and used to be.

From dwarves I learn to forge and make,
From Norns I learn my fate,
And in the end, I know I have
To keep with Hel a date.

Itís great to be a Viking kid,
For it is plain to see,
I have a hundred gods
For watching over me.

A Viking Kidís Song     (Song version)

Itís great to be a Viking kid,
For it is plain to see,
There are a hundred gods
That I can call to me.

There are protective bind runes
That mommy carved for me,
That I can fling at monsters,
And set them all to flee.

Odin watches over my sleep,
And Frigga hears my dreams,
I wake in Sunnaís embrace,
And play in Thorís great fields.

From Frey and Freyja I`ll learn,
Great Vanic mysteries,
And giants teach me the things
That were and used to be.

From dwarves I learn to forge,
From Norns I learn my fate,
And in the end, I know I have
To keep with Hel a date.

Itís great to be a Viking kid,
For it is plain to see,
I have a hundred gods
For watching over me.
