The Lyrics

I'm at badave.com and soundcilck.com.

Okay, there is a back story to this one. I was at work and a co-worker who had heard Twinkie King was telling another co-worker about that particular recording and Antarctican Terrorists. He had heard Squeal Good and said Dave, where do you come up with such obscure ideas and make them funny. I replied that any virtually any obscure topic can be made funny with the right song, barring serious topics. He dared me to write a parody about Viking Food, which I promptly did (why Hot Blooded? Don't know, that's just the song that clicked for this topic with me), here is the result. He has already seen this one, which he wants to see recorded, he thought it was awesome, hopefully you all like it too.
Well, We're starved vikings, It's time to eat
We're gonna hunt and get some pork or some beef
Come on baby, put some beer in my glass
'Cause we're vikings, Yeah we're vikings

Killing reindeer all the time
and feeding on what grows on vines
Honey's sweet when it flows
Now you've crossed the line
When you said that I can't dine
We'll strike a blow
and we'll chow down on horses and goats

Now the world is screwed
If they cross us we will all let loose
It's black and blue
when we're angry and you know that it's true

It's because We're Vikings
We love bailey
Get me some hops, carrots and perhaps some peas
Come on baby, we predate Burger King
We're Dead Vikings, Dead Vikings

We were known for might
Most the horn tales, well they weren't right
And we aren't that hairy
Man you oughta research sometimes
come on gals, we aren't all grime
Tell me, where'd you learn baby
Because we dig that celery

We kept our carbs up
So when we're hunting we would be all buff
We ate twice a night
and we discovered Canada-that's right

Yeah cause We're Vikings
Pirates at sea
But we've been dead over ten centuries
Come on baby, we weren't known for our dance
We're dead vikings, we're dead vikings, (I'm dead)

(Guitar Solo)

Now some things are true
Yes Lots of beer had been consumed
Oh, and this part too,
We could be ruthless if it suits the mood

Well, we're dead vikings,
but we can speak
We were quite famous back in nine eighty three
Come on baby, give me milk and some lamb
we're dead vikings, we're dead vikings

We're vikings, You heard that right
We're Vikings, We didn't eat light
We're Vikings, Some portrayed us as wild
We're vikings-We're vikings,
We just had our own style
We're vikings, Birka's like rye
We're vikings, ate acorns when crops dried
We're vikings, What's this opera thing
we're vikings-we're vikings,
That's not how we sang

I already knew this one was coming because you told me about it over the phone. People should know not to challange you to any song because you can do it amazingly well... For instance, "I Gotta Feeling" or "Bat Out Of Hell" or even "Matthias Guy"!

At least this is the only parody that doesn't bash the president.

I can hardly believe that I missed this parody about Viking Food when it was hot on the front plate of Amiright (caught it now thanks to Matty's comment on your current SOTM one). It's a good one, all I have to add is (and you might have heard this before) that the most amazing thing about the Vikings were the Valkyries that served as barebreasted maids during festivities; that's right, in a climate with an average temperature of close to zero degresses celcius my ancestors invented the (true) Hooters concept!

Pretty funny, interesting idea...but sounded more like a report than a spoof. Nice work though

I'm betting your co-worker is a Naked Gun fan. Interesting pairing to Hot Blooded. Beer, horses and goats sound like a fine meal to me!

I am with Abbott...it's clear that the narrow topic didnt give you much to work with, so you had to draw upon other general Viking issues to pad it out...which I found to be more interesting than the hungry Viking topic itself. "Tough Vikings" would be a funnier title to sing, too.

What I do know is this, not all Vikings lives in Minnesota.
