From "Jupiter the Balloon Horse"

Zum diddy-diddy dah dah dah
Zum diddy-diddy dah dah dah
Zum diddy-diddy dah dah dah
Zum diddy-diddy dah dah

High seas
Throats of the North
Raised in song
Strapped to the oars of a longboat
Seesaw in time with the tide
With only the stars as our guide
Southward we glide
The prow of our ship
Shaped like some half-naked lady we carved
Of Norweigan wood
Isn't it good

Just like in Oslo,
Death to the beat of a drum!
Oslo,
Angry and lost we sing
Zum diddy-diddy dah dah dah
Zum diddy-diddy dah dah dah
Zum diddy-diddy dah dah dah
Zum diddy-diddy dah dah

Waves crash
Saltwater licks at our beards
The air whips around with the weird stench
Of sweat mixed with watered-down ale
Sadly our flatbread is stale
Wish we could sail
Rather than row
Far from King Olaf, the fjords, and

Oslo
Bitter our hearts have become!
Oslo.
Robbing small towns we'll sing
Zum diddy-diddy dah dah dah
Zum diddy-diddy dah dah dah
Zum diddy-diddy dah dah dah
Zum diddy-diddy dah dah
