Where the ice surrounds most of what you see, I was born and raised
Even breaking summer was cold in the nights, when the sun died red,
My father, a smith, in iron and steel casted for me a sword
I held the bone pommel and learned how to fight when I was just four.
I remember the day when I left my kin, far away in time
with a hundred men I came to this coasts from the winter's land
Through the endless sea we sailed our drakkar seeking glory
And that's how it starts the conquest of dreams, our story.
To the highland hills Odin's guidance brought our ship through the myst,
We stepped on the ground, meadows at our feet, caressed by the breeze
From that moment on, we knew we would never be the same
In time we found love and Muireadach was our new given name.
There are two great things that norse men are taught as soon as they walk
The first is to sail, fearless of the storms, fearless of the dark
The other, the art of handling the sword, defending our pride
No matter how fierce the opponent appears, we stand side by side.
Let my drakkar sail to the sound of the pipes
Blowing from the highlands, my new paradise
As seabrave, a viking, so proud of my kin
I came seeking conquest, and conquered I've been
Now I know that a warrior is allowed to be a man
Since, Odin!, you turned me into a Muireadach one.
