  • The seadogs have all sailed their ships
    Into the docks of dawn
    While the sirens sit and comb their hair
    And twiddle with their thumbs

    Oh Thor above the mountain
    Look down upon your children
    This is their heaven where they´re told
    To bring their galleons

    Seek you find your place with me
    Men of iron, men of steel
    Only the brave hear the hammers ring
    In the courts of the Queens, in the halls of the Kings

    You can come to Val-hala in your own time
    Come to Val-hala seek and you will find Val-hala
    Come to Val-hala in your own time
    Come to Val-hala seek and you will find Val-hala

    There´s long boats in the harbour
    Which arrive there every hour
    With the souls of the heroes
    Whose blood lies on the flowers

    And this heaven is the home
    Of every man who loves his sword
    And he uses it for freedom
    To preach the word of Thor
