The Long Ships

 

Row upon row the machinery of death, dormant and ageless,

Beware the longs ships stealth,

 

Far ranging and feared they be,

Awesome and majestic, these masters of the sea,

 

Loudly can they speak in these our times of woe,

Death to traitors, so perish all menís foe,

 

Man your stations and let the big guns speak,

Beware all enemies where the long ships seekÖ
