The Lyrics

In the first part of the battle
I was looking at all the fights
There were grunts and groans and rocks in slings
There were hands on hilts and shields
The first one I killed was a guy with some fuzz
And he died looking proud
The blood was hot and the ground was red
And the air was full of sound

I'm fearless in battle
I'm a Norse with no pain
It felt good to stand over my slain
In the battle
You can dismember and maim
'Til there ain't no one
For to fight who remains

Thor!
Thor!
Thor-Thor-Thor-Thor-Thor!
Odin-Thor!
Thor!
Thor!

Thor!
Thor!
Thor-Thor-Thor-Thor-Thor!
Loki-Thor!
Thor!
Thor!

After two days of that battle fun
My enemies were all dead
After three days, with the battle done,
I was pillaging the village sheds
And the stories we told of that battle so bold
Made me glad I'm Eric The Red

You see, I'm fearless in battle
I'm a Norse with no pain
It feels good to stand over my slain
When you're fighting
You can't remember your name
You just hack helmets
'Til you're sprayed with them brains

Thor!
Thor!
Thor-Thor-Thor-Thor-Thor!
Odin-Thor!
Thor!
Thor!

Thor!
Thor!
Thor-Thor-Thor-Thor-Thor!
Loki-Thor!
Thor!
Thor!

After nine days of all that Norseman glee
We packed up and returned to sea
We would grunt and groan, we'd laugh and sing,
All our hands had gilt gold rings
The ocean is our highway to our next battleground
It's the road to the life we love -
Plunder the cities, wisely cart blades around,
Cuttin' humans, spillin' more blood !

You see, I'm fearless in battle
I'm a Norse with no pain
It's so cold here it snows, never rains
Like a desert
Our land's a cold rocky plain
That's why we set forth
To rape, pillage, and maim!

Thor!
Thor!
Thor-Thor-Thor-Thor-Thor!
Odin-Thor!
Thor!
Thor!

Thor!
Thor!
Thor-Thor-Thor-Thor-Thor!
Loki-Thor!
Thor!
Thor!

Johnnie, I use this song as an example of idiocy and poor grammer in lyric writing (at least for non-rap songs) with the line "Ain't no one for to give you no pain" With its triple negative and "for to" I cringe every time. So I sez to myself when I see the title, I know my Johnnie will figure out a way to keep that atrocity and mock it. You keep me in awe and on my toes. You ain't never gonna not come through.

Rick - you honor me, sir, with your gracious words - especially since they come from you, a member of the hilariously-talented "musical twosical" we all know and love as "RAD & MAD" ! Happy New Year to you and your charming and lovely wife!

I saw the title and thought, "hmmm... vikings... ugh... this isn't going to be my cuppa, so I'm not going to know what he's earned in the middle category. I guess I'll read it now and watch the feedback so I can come back and vote more objectively in that category, later in the day." Just goes to show you can't always judge a parody by the title or the theme. VERY nicely done.

Johnny, Vikings wouldn't be my favirite theme to read, but knowing you as an author, you made it interesting. :) 5's

Macho but enjoyable! Is it just me, or do the patterns of "Thor! Thor!", etc. look like swords?
Rick D - January 01, 2004 - Report this comment
If you squint, they kind of look like the state of Texas.

Somebody's been taking too much Thor-azine.

JD - This song is very THOR-aputic if you're into death and destruction. Well done as usual.
Johnny D - January 01, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks Melhi, Adagio, David, Mari D, Michael, and Guy!

Swords? I hadn't thought of that...perhaps...or maybe daggers?

Texas, eh? That's a good one - everything's bigger in Texas, right? I've been there - Houston, Austion, San Antonio, The Alamo, The Riverwalk....great places!
Johnny D - January 01, 2004 - Report this comment
Ooops, I invented a new Texan city called "Austion", didn't I ? Sorry, folks, I meant "Austin". Did I spell it right that time? I just got back from a New Year's Day dinner which included a bottle of Italian chardonnay and a shot of Laphroaig scotch, so my eye-keyboard coordination is especially fabulous and stellar at the moment.

A second set of 5's from the Alamo City on this one. Very creative. -- MM

What if A Norse With No Pain road on The Horse That Shot Flame? It would be A World Not the Same.

You did a great job with this parody, Johnny! "A Horse With No Name" was one of my favorite songs to parody ("Of Course He's To Blame") because the rhymes were easy to twist.
Johnny D - February 19, 2004 - Report this comment
Will - good to hear from you! And thanks very much.
Hey! What if those two DID meet? - March 19, 2004 - Report this comment
On the back of this steed,/I'm the Norse with no pain,/under me is the Horse that shot flame./We are double-trouble/with the flame and the pain/from my Greataxe counting all of the slain-(wow! this pacing thing is Hard !5's all around to both parodies from me!)

Johnny D - Great job! 5-5-5...I missed this when it first was posted. Let's see, Jan. 1st...OH...I think I spent that day on the ledge trying to decide if I should jump (just kidding, but I was a mess). RICK D - I love this Jan.1 comment of yours about the original songs miserable grammar exhibition. "You ain't never gonna not come through" When I managed Crenshaw Car Wash the last time (1986, I think), I had this really fantastic Line Manager named Marco. He was from Guatemala. Sharp guy, had plenty going on upstairs, very bright. Anyway, English....well, people understood him because he put plenty of emphasis into everything. When he told one of the workers "Listen, you NEVER, NEVER, NEVER NOT gonna do that again" I never heard a single one of them ask him what he meant.

I agree with all of the previous comments (except that it's probably too late to wish you a happy new year). A very bloody, but entertaining, trip back a thousand years or so into history.

A swing of my axe /and a shot of the flame/really puts the Grim Reaper to shame..(Hmmmm..)
Ernesto R - August 15, 2006 - Report this comment
Very well thought out and good rhythm! If you can sing just about anything, LOOKOUT Wierd Al Yankovic! Very Viking...made a lot more sense than "A Horse With No Name" which reminds me of an illegal alien on a stolen horse that's gonna die with somebody else's horse in the desert "Only thing missing is "They took away my free tortillas now I've got them gas pains ...from too many beans...and I'm going insane...la la la la la la la!"
