THE IMMIGRANT SONG – LED ZEPPELIN

. . . Originally meant for the Vikings taking over Iceland, but I think it equally applies to the other Euros crossing the oceans to invade populated lands that weren’t theirs . . .

WE ARE IMMIGRANTS.  

DON’T PRETEND THE LAND BELONGS TO US.

Canadians, Americans.

Australians, New Zealanders.

South Africans.

Israelis.

AND WE ARE THE SAVAGES.

THIRSTING FOR BLOOD,

LAND,

GOLD,

RESOURCES . . . .

THE IMMIGRANT SONG – LED ZEPPELIN

Ah, ah,

We come from the land of the ice and snow,

From the midnight sun where the hot springs flow.

The hammer of the gods will drive our ships to new lands,

To fight the horde, singing and crying: Valhalla, I am coming!

On we sweep with threshing oar, Our only goal will be the western shore.

Ah, ah,

We come from the land of the ice and snow,

From the midnight sun where the hot springs blow.

How soft your fields so green, can whisper tales of gore,

Of how we calmed the tides of war. We are your overlords.

On we sweep with threshing oar, Our only goal will be the western shore.

So now you’d better stop and rebuild all your ruins,

For peace and trust can win the day despite of all your losing.

This last pic is my ancestor from Europe . . . perhaps we are the Savages!
