The Wild Hunt Song
(Also known as "The
Viking Funeral Song" -
To the tune of "The Worms Crawl In; The Worms Crawl Out".)
Oh, when you see the Wild
Hunt ride by,
You know that you'll be the next to die.
They'll put Hel-shoes upon your feet;
They'll brew some ale and slaughter some meat.
A naked man will light your pyre,
And then the flames will leap higher and higher!
The flames go in; the flames go out;
In your stomach and out your mouth.
They'll burn your eyes; they'll burn your nose;
They'll burn the jelly between your toes!
They'll burn you up and char you well;
And put your feet on the Road to Hel.
They'll put your ashes in an urn in the ground,
And then they'll raise up a great big mound.
And when your name's in Runes on a stone,
They'll slay a thrall so you won't be alone!
