Viking in Disguise
My distant relatives were not so nice
Old Uncle Sven and Aunt Helga were nice enough,
I guess, but holiday’s were lacking something,
people used to attest to that fact
I don’t know, Odenmas doesn’t quite have
the same ring as Christmas, now does it?
And Halloween? Instead of going door-to-door,
begging for treats, they’d go from village to village,
plundering; and they’d dress up all right,
dress up as Vikings; and when the neighbors saw them coming,
they’d panic, and bury the candy
Yes, I’m a Viking in disguise; Scandinavian half way
The other half is Irish, so you’d do well not to piss me off!
