Hey hey, Laddie O
We'll climb that hill
And we'll fight the foe

The muscled might of Ealdormere
Is climbing up the hill
with our goods sent here

Hey hey, Laddie O
We'll climb that hill
And we'll fight the foe

Heed well the northern red
When you see it on the field
With the eastern dead

Hey hey, Laddie O
We'll climb that hill
And we'll fight the foe

What means your belt and rowel
When your face is turned to white
With the north realm's howl

Hey hey, Laddie O
We'll climb that hill
And we'll fight the foe

The army rolls towards the field
In the tides of the battle
We will not yield

Hey hey, Laddie O
We'll climb that hill
And we'll fight the foe

Hail to the princess wise and fair
The finest inspiration
Of Ealdormere

Hey hey, Laddie O
We'll climb that hill
And we'll fight the foe

Snow rain or sun beat down
We're fighting for the pride
Of our sovereign crown

Hey hey, Laddie O
We'll climb that hill
And we'll fight the foe

Fie, what their king bestows
They'll be getting their rewards
From our swords and bows

Hey hey, Laddie O
We'll climb that hill
And we'll fight the foe

Carting's a good career
When you're carting off
The foes of Ealdormere

Hey hey, Laddie O
We'll climb that hill
And we'll fight the foe

Salute to the one you hold most dear
And do honor to the prince
Of Ealdormere

Hey hey, Laddie O
We'll climb that hill
And we'll fight the foe

Lift up your swords and sing
For the glories of the war
This day will bring

Hey hey, Laddie O
We'll climb that hill
And we'll fight the foe

Hail to the friends from far and near
The allies of the wolves
Of Ealdormere

Hey hey, Laddie O
We'll climb that hill
And we'll fight the foe

Heave ho with all your might
The crown on the mountain
Is in sight

Hey hey, Laddie O
We'll climb that hill
And we'll fight the foe

Raise up your voice and cheer
For the patriots who sweat
For Ealdormere

Hey hey, Laddie O
We'll climb that hill
And we'll fight the foe
Hey hey, Laddie O
We'll climb that hill
And we'll fight the foe
Hey hey, Laddie O
We'll climb that hill
And we'll fight the foe
