WE ARE VARANGIANS

Weve paid our weregilds -
Time after time -
We cant write a sentence
And prefer to commit crime -
And of meat partake,
We love our brew too
Weve had our share of Greek Fire in our face -
But weve come through

We are Varangians - my friends
And well keep on fighting - till the end -
We are Varangians -
We are Varangians
No time for losers
We are Varangians we rule the world - Weve taken our axes
Taken up both shield and sword -
They brought us fame and fortune and everything that goes with it -
We take on all -

But its been no bed of roses
No Kon Tiki cruise -
Well be loyal to our Basileus till we decide to chop him up in disgrace
Then go on the booze -

We are Varangians - my friends
And well keep on fighting - till the end -
We are Varangians -
We are Varangians
No time for Normans
cause we Varangians - run the world -


VARANGIAN RHAPSODY

Grima, just killed a man
An axe against his head
Just a tickle, now he's dead.
Grima, battles just begun
And I think Im going Berserk today.
Grima, ooh, ooh ooh oooooooh
Really meant to make him die
If Im not back again this time tomorrow-
Carry on, carry on, cause glory only matters-

Too late, your time has come,
Ill put javelins in your spine-
Body breaking all the time,
Say goodbye to your body-youve got to go-
Gotta leave us all behind and face the sooth-
Grima, ooo- (Either way our wind breaks)
They dont want to die,
Sometimes they wish theyd never been born at all-

[guitar solo]

I see a little iron stiletto in your hand,
Panterius, Panterius will you do the Hasapiko -
Thunderbolt and lightning-very very frightening me-
Michael Psellus,
Michael Psellus
Psellus, Psellus-Domestikos-
But Im just a Varangian boy, nobody loves me-
Hes just a Varangian boy from a Rus family-
He loves to plunder, pillage and commit atrocities-
Easy come easy go-,will you let me go-
Strategos! no-,we will not let you go-let him go-
Strategos! we will not let you go-let him go
Strategos! we will not let you go-let me go
Will not let you go-let me go
Will not let you go let me go
No,no,no,no,no,no,no-
Panta rhea, Panta rhea, Panta rhea let me go-
The Emperor has some gold put aside for me,for me,for me-

So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye-
So you think you can fight me and leave me to die-
Oh enemy-cant do this to me enemy-
Just gotta get out-just gotta get right outta here-

Nothing really matters,
Anyone can see,
Nothing really matters-,nothing really matters to me,

Either way our wind breaks....
