The Tyr Song                      Listen on YouTube
Tune: “Down In It” from Nine Inch Nails' debut single     

Kinda like a cloud, he was up, way up in the sky 
And I was seeing things, things that I couldn’t believe 
Some times I don’t believe them, myself, 
But I decided to raise up my horn full of mead 

Just then, this tiny little dot 
Caught my eye, it was who I wanted to see 
And watched him cross the Rainbow Bridge 
As he came on a gust of wind to the ground 

Tyr, the God of Justice! 
Wielding a spear 
Tyr, the God of Justice! 
Fettered Fenrir 

I looked up! 
“So, what; what is the problem, now?” 
He said to me as I sheepishly stared at the ground 
“I just called upon you 
“To share some mead I found.” 

With that, he grabbed the horn from my hand 
And smiled broadly while he drank the Kvasir’s Blood 
Then he told me to sit down 
‘Cause he had a tale to share with me 

Tyr, the God of Justice! 
Wielding a spear 
Tyr, the God of Justice! 
Fettered Fenrir 

“I’m told that I am big and strong,
“I always know what’s right and wrong 
“I am the god who’s not afraid, I put that Wolf in his place! 
“They thought that it was fun and games,
“then they could not put him in chains 
“I lost my hand to him -- but he ain’t going nowhere!” 

He paused his tale for me to drink 
And said “Well, what do you think?” 
I told him he was very brave 
And thanked him for the hand he gave 

“I kinda laugh about it now, 
“but it’s not funny how everything will work out 
“I guess the joke’s on me 
“At Ragnarok.” 

Tyr, the God of Justice! 
Wielding a spear 
Tyr, the God of Justice! 
Fettered Fenrir 

Tyr, my man you’re very brave; 
thank you for the hand you gave 
Tyr, my man you’re very brave; 
thank you for the hand you gave 

One-Handed Clap!!!!
