    Chorus: Shai Hulud, send me a great worm, send me the courage to ride it well
    Shai Hulud, send me way to change the nightmare that Spice foretells
    Shai Hulud, give me a new way, and vengeance for all who died
    Shai Hulud, give me worm to ride

    My homeworld was a water dream that I had left behind
    Arrakis and the Spice had filled the corners of my mind
    My mother was beside me, Father's ring was in my hand
    I started up the drumming and we crossed the desert sand

    I learned the ways of Fremen, and I taught them mine as well
    We trained an army twice as fierce as any spawned in Hell
    I had to prove my manhood if I wished to hold command
    So I started up the drumming and I waited, hook in hand


    I've drunk the Maker's waters, and I've searched each future path
    And nothing in those visions can prevent the days of wrath
    So I gather up the army for a final bloody stand
    And we start the thumper drumming, and we ride across the sand

    The tales and songs will live beyond the ending of my days
    But all that I have felt and loved will pass too soon away
    I'll walk into my future knowing every step by heart
    And none will ever guess how much I dread to play my part
