When Mongol eyes are smiling,
Then it means a raid in Spring,
In the lilt of Mongol laughter,
You can hear the broadswords ring.
When Mongol hearts are happy,
It means yours is theirs today,
And when Mongol eyes are smiling,
Sure, they'll steal your gold away.

When Moorish eyes are smiling,
It's slave caravans in Spring,
In the lilt of Moorish laughter,
You can hear the slave chains ring,
When Moorish hearts are happy,
It means you are theirs today,
And when Moorish eyes are smiling,
Sure, they'll steal your girls away.

When Viking eyes are smiling,
Long ships harbor in your springs,
A Vikings always laughing,
While he burns down everything,
Oh a Viking likes to pillage,
And he likes to rape and burn,
So when Viking eyes are smiling,
Then it means that it's your turn.

When Norman eyes are smiling,
They will want to be your king,
In the aftermath of conquest,
They'll take over everything,
A Norman's never happy,
Unless he can have his way,
And when Norman eyes are smiling,
They'll steal your lands away.
