Belrix Brings the Northshield!
(In Honor of Prince Belrix as War Come)
Tune: “Band O’ Shearers” , Scottish trad.  Band O' Shearers - Performance on YouTube

Chorus: 
There’s smoke arising in the sky!
Oh hear the hungry ravens cry!
The warhorn summons you and I
And Belrix brings the Northshield!


Oh come now kinsmen, chief and clan!
We’ll face the East and make our stand!
Our fame lies in Debated Lands
And Belrix brings the Northshield!

If the fighting it be dry
We’ll stand beneath the blazing sky
And proudly fight and win or die
When Belrix brings the Northshield!

And if the fighting it goes ill
We’ll fight with hands and teeth and will!
We’ll earn our beds beneath the hill
When Belrix brings the Northshield!

Chorus

And if the fighting it goes well
We’ll send our foemen straight to hell—
Our singing steel a dirging bell
When Belrix brings the Northshield!

And if the fighting it goes fine
We’ll face our foemen line on line
And spill their blood like savage wine
When Belrix brings the Northshield!

And if the battle it be long
We’ll light our hearts with gladsome song!
We’ll raise our blades and voices strong
When Belrix brings the Northshield!

And if the battle it be lost
We’ll proudly stand and pay the cost!
Make foemen mourn for what they’ve bought
When Belrix brings the Northshield!

And if the battle it be won
We’ll gather when the dyin’s done
And have some rantin’ rovin’ fun
When Belrix brings the Northshield!

2x Chorus
