Murne ic min kyng, siššan Wyllelm gewann
Murne ic min kyng, Harold Godwineson.
O-ho, O-ho.

Hwanne Hardrada cam uppan ša norš,
Clegende se kyng and we ridan ut,
O-ho, O-ho.

Ęt Stamfordbrycg, Hardrada crang;
Ša Noršmann beag eall šynce wel,
O-ho, O-ho.

Sušweardes we ridan on yuel aerend;
Ęt Pefnesea, Wyllelm leas uran,
O-ho, O-ho.

In a Hastings hill ure weall hiewde
Mid sweord and sagol, aecs and scild
O-ho, O-ho

Ic campide min kyng, aecs in hand,
Ic ampide min kyng and for Enga land,
O-ho, O-ho.

Šurh flan-fešered and acen bord
Ic sean se kyng uppan ša grund,
O-ho, O-ho.

A Norman mece cleoft his healf;
In campe-storm he cwelan šaer,
O-ho, O-ho.

Nu folc wit wel šaet Harold crang,
And mit him crang šaet rice to,
O-ho, O-ho.

And we no habbaš a bastard kyng,
His Norman hand baer se beachnels-baeg,
O-ho, O-ho.

Min wund bled gen, se haeleš ne;
Min laš ic slan gen feltes stieles,
O-ho, O-ho.

Swa swilt ic her, Seaxe freate;
Ic fylge Haroldes blanca claš,
O-ho, O-ho.

Murne ic min kyng, siššan Wyllelm gewann
Murne ic min kyng, Harold Godwineson.
O-ho, O-ho.
