Songbook: (Bring Back) Dad's Longship

To the tune of 'Bring Back My Bonny To Me', a trad. Scottish tune about Bonnie Prince Charlie

My father's a Viking from Norway,
My mother's a maiden from Kent,
My dad preferred sheep to my mother,
My goodness these Vikings are …

Chorus:
Bring back, bring back,
O bring back dad's longship to me, to me,
Bring back, bring back,
O bring back dad's longship to me.

Ma's husband's a merchant from Reigate,
He tried to sell mother to dad,
But Pa raped him instead of my mother,
My goodness these Vikings are …

Chorus

My grandpa- the one on me Ma's side,
He said to me dad "Bjorn, look here",
So Bjorn looked there and then raped Grandpa,
My goodness these Vikings are …

Chorus

Pa raped my Mama in the moonlight,
All out in the cold and the damp,
For she'd hid herself under a sheepskin,
My goodness these Vikings are …

Chorus

My father's a Viking from Norway,
My mother's a shepherd in Kent,
Ma's husband and Grandpa are slavegirls,
My goodness these Vikings are …

Chorus
