Nine Daring Asatru                         Nine Daring Asatru MP3
Tune: Ten little Indians (1868)

Nine Daring Asatru were calling Odin´s might;
The stormwind blew them all away, and then there were just eight.

Eight Daring Asatru conjured the Volva´s ken,
The Volva took one back to Hel, and then there were just se'en.

Seven Daring Asatru invited Loki´s tricks,
One heathen laughed himself to death, and then there were just six.

Six Daring Asatru did blot a goat alive;
The godhi struck and missed the blow, and then there were just five.

Five Daring Asatru were shouting loud for Thor;
A lightning flash struck down at once, and then there were just four.

Four Daring Asatru were going for a spree;
The sacrificial bog was cool, and then there were just three.

Three Daring Asatru drank home-made mead and brew;
All Midgard spun and Asgard reeled, and then there were just two.

Two Daring Asatru of Frey were making fun,
Frey did not find that funny, no, and then there was just one.

One Daring Asatru, he did not stay alone:
He spread the word and founded soon a kindred of his own.
