WE ARE VARANGIANS

We’ve paid our weregilds -
Time after time -
We can’t write a sentence
And prefer to commit crime -
And of meat partake,
We love our brew too
We’ve had our share of Greek Fire in our face -
But we’ve come through

We are Varangians - my friends
And we’ll keep on fighting - till the end -
We are Varangians -
We are Varangians
No time for losers
We are Varangians – we rule the world -
