I am going to Valhalla        
(Sung like a gospel)

I was raised up from my childhood to love the Gods of my home,
I will worship, I won't forsake them, no matter where I roam.
I am grown now to my manhood, and I set sail in the fjord,
When I reach that battle 'cross the sea, I will raise my sacred sword.

I am going to Valhalla,
I am going to Valhalla,
I am going to Valhalla, when the Valkyries take me home.

As I wander, through this wide world, I will spread Thor's holy name,
I will worship and I will plunder as I go to seek my fame.
I will pillage and I will slaughter, and when I've had my way
I will raise my hands up and give thanks that I lived through another day.

I am going to Valhalla,
I am going to Valhalla,
I am going to Valhalla, when the Valkyries take me home.

Well the Christians, they have their heaven, and the Buddhists their nirvana,
Well the atheists haven't the foggiest, and the Jews await their Messiah,
Lesser mortals have their own fate, but there's one thing I know above all:
That some day, if I die my death, I will see that great drinking hall.

I am going to Valhalla,
I am going to Valhalla,
I am going to Valhalla, when the Valkyries take me home.

On one day, I will wake up and rise to greet the dawn.
I will walk on that field of battle, but my luck will have gone.
I will face that final challenge, and the courage I won't lack.
I will raise my broad-axe in my hand as another hits me in the back.

I am going to Valhalla,
I am going to Valhalla,
I am going to Valhalla, when the Valkyries take me home.
