One Of Odin's Now                      Listen on YouTube
Parody & to the tune of "In The Army Now" by Status Quo, 1986

You wanted some excitement in your life
Now you're belonging to the Lord of Strife,
You're one of Odin's now, oh-oo-oh, you're one of Odin's now.

When you first came, what did your godhi say?
Nothing to do but hang around all day,
You're one of Odin's now, oh-oo-oh, you're one of Odin's now.

He showed you how to travel to the realms nine
Too bad that you got stuck in Jotunheim,
You're one of Odin's now, oh-oo-oh, you're one of Odin's now.

You'll be the greatest poet of all time
Now you even think and dream in rhyme,
You're one of Odin's now, oh-oo-oh, you're one of Odin's now.

Drums ring out in the dead of night
The volva calls: "Now you do the seidh!"
You're one of Odin's now, oh-oo-oh, you're one of Odin's now.

You see Gungnir flying over your head
How you wish that you had stayed in bed,
You're one of Odin's now, oh-oo-oh, you're one of Odin's now.

The army of the enemy is plain in sight
You scratch a hasty runespell but it don't work right,
You're one of Odin's now, oh-oo-oh, you're one of Odin's now.
You're one of Odin's now, oh-oo-oh, you're one of Odin's now.

A noose is swinging and you just can't see,
Is this illusion or reality?
You're one of Odin's now, oh-oo-oh, you're one of Odin's now.
You're one of Odin's now, oh-oo-oh, you're one of Odin's now.

Oh-oo-oh you're one of Odin's, one of Odin's now
Oh-oo-oh you're one of Odin's, one of Odin's now
Oh-oo-oh you're one of Odin's, one of Odin's now
