Guild of berserkers (Bärsärker Gille)

Swedish

Bärsärker Gille

Bordet dukat och bänken full,
Gives plats åt ännu en?
Uti händer hålles fyllda horn,
Här sitter vän och vän.
 
Bit i sköld, slå i bordh
Ta skopan full och drick!
Skölj damm ur strupe, sorg ur håg,
Giv fäder, gudar: Skål!
 
Bänkar bräck och borden vält
Låt Bärsärk komma fri
I Vargahamn med björnahåg
Gå Odins hemska hird (x2)
 
Ottar gick i backen där,
Han föll så näsan sprack
Upp från golvet reste sig,
Från snoken sårsvett rann
 
Bit i sköld, slå i bord,
Ta skopan full och drick
Skölj damm ur strupe, sorg ur håg,
Giv fäder, gudar Skål
 
Bänkar bräck och borden vält
Låt Bärsärk komma fri
I Vargahamn med björnahåg
Gå Odins hemska hird (x4)

Guild of berserkers

The table is set and the bench is full,
Is there room for yet another one?
Filled horns are being held,
A friend and a friend is sitting here
 
Bite the shield, knock on the table,
Get a scoopful and drink
Wash the dust from the throat, the sorrow from the mind,
Toast to the fathers and the gods
 
Break the benches and flip the tables
Let the berserkers free
In the shape of wolves with the minds of bears
The fearsome guardians of Odin are on the loose (x2)
 
Ohthere fell to the ground,
He almost broke his nose
Got up from the floor,
Exudate dripping from his nose
 
Bite the shield, knock on the table,
Get a scoopful and drink
Wash the dust from the throat, the sorrow from the mind,
Toast to the fathers and the gods
 
Break the benches and flip the tables
Let the berserkers free
In the shape of wolves with the minds of bears
The fearsome guardians of Odin are on the loose (x2)
