Oh, the Vinland shores of Newfoundland,
In sagas, we are told,
Of Erik the Red who Vikings led,
Those Norsemen strong and bold.
Those Norsemen strong and bold.
Those Norsemen strong and bold.

Oh, the sea is wild, the sea is free,
The sea is you and me;
Blow ye winds and sail away,
To the land across the sea.
To the land across the sea.
To the land across the sea.

Oh, fill up the sails. Blow winds blow,
Oh, fill up the sails some more;
Oh, fill up the sails. Blow winds blow,
We're movin' away from shore.
Oh, fill up the sails. Blow winds blow,
Oh, fill up the sails some more;
We'll weather the seas if the blow winds blow,
We're Vikings true and bold!
We're Vikings true and bold!
We're Vikings true and bold!

Oh, the Viking ships, the ships of lore,
That came from Norway shores,
Long before John Cabot sailed,
Had settled here before.
Had settled here before.
Had lived here once before.

Oh, fill up the sails. Blow winds blow,
Oh, fill up the sails some more;
Oh, fill up the sails. Blow winds blow,
We're movin' away from shore.
Oh, fill up the sails. Blow winds blow,
Oh, fill up the sails some more;
We'll weather the seas if the blow winds blow,
We're Vikings true and bold!
We're Vikings true and bold!
We're Vikings true and bold!

Oh, the sea is rough, the sea is cold,
The sea, like me, is old;
Blow ye winds and sail me away,
And bury me out to sea.
And bury me out to sea.
And bury me out to sea.

Oh, fill up the sails. Blow winds blow,
Oh, fill up the sails some more;
Oh, fill up the sails. Blow winds blow,
We're movin' away from shore.
Oh, fill up the sails. Blow winds blow,
Oh, fill up the sails some more;
We'll weather the seas if the blow winds blow,
We're Vikings true and bold!
We're Vikings true and bold!
We're Vikings true and bold!
We're Vikings true and bold!
