Hi guys,I'm posting some bard songs,you can post your own or some other.
Ragnar the Red
Oh, there once was a hero named Ragnar the Red
Who came riding to Whiterun from old Rorikstead
And the braggart did swagger and brandish his blade
As he told of bold battles and gold he had made

But then he went quiet, did Ragnar the Red
When he met the shield-maiden Matilda, who said;

"Oh, you talk and you lie and you drink all our mead
Now I think it's high time that you lie down and bleed!"

And so then came clashing and slashing of steel
As the brave lass Matilda charged in, full of zeal

And the braggart named Ragnar was boastful no more-
When his ugly red head rolled around on the floor!

Dragonborn comes
Our hero, our hero, claims a warrior's heart.
I tell you, I tell you, the Dragonborn comes.

With a Voice-wielding power of the Ancient Nord art.

Believe, believe, the Dragonborn comes.

It's an end to the evil of all Skyrim's foes.

Beware, beware, the Dragonborn comes.

For the darkness has passed and the legend yet grows.

You'll know, you'll know, the Dragonborn's come.

The Age of Aggression
We drink to our youth, for the days come and gone.
For the age of aggression is just about done.
We'll drive out the Stormcloaks and restore what we own.
With our blood and our steel we'll take back our home.
Down with Ulfric! The killer of kings!
On the day of your death we'll drink and we'll sing.
We're the children of Skyrim, and we fight all our lives.
And when Sovngarde beckons, every one of us dies!
But this land is ours and we'll see it wiped clean.
Of the scourge that has sullied our hopes and our dreams.

The Age of Oppression
We drink to our youth, and to days come and gone.
For the age of oppression is now nearly done.
We'll drive out the Empire from this land that we own.
With our blood and our steel we will take back our home.
All hail to Ulfric! You are the High King!
In your great honour we drink and we sing.
We're the children of Skyrim, and we fight all our lives.
And when Sovngarde beckons, every one of us dies!
But this land is ours and we'll see it wiped clean.
Of the scourge that has sullied our hopes and our dreams.

All hail to Ulfric! You are the High King!
In your great honor we drink and we sing.

I'm a bit puzzled about Ragnar the Red. He's said to have come from Rorikstead but it seems like Rorik was the one who built it and he's only 50ish. However, if it is in the bardic custom, I doubt it would be recent. And since this is set 1000 years before Skyrim it might make it a little hard to accept lore-wise.

If anyone can help here...

Tale of Tongues

Alduin's wings, they did darken the sky.
His roar fury's fire, and his scales sharpened scythes.
Men ran and they cowered, and they fought and they died.
They burned and they bled, as they issued their cries

We need saviors to free us, from Alduin's rage.

Heroes on the field, of this new war to wage.

And if Alduin wins, man is gone from this world.
Lost in the shadow, of the black wings unfurled.

But then came the Tongues, on that terrible day.
Steadfast as winter, they entered the fray.
And all heard the music, of Alduin's doom.
The sweet song of Skyrim, sky-shattering Thu'um.

And so the Tongues freed us, from Alduin's rage.
Gave the gift of the Voice, ushered in a new Age.
If Alduin is eternal, then eternity's done.
For his story is over and the dragons are gone.

The Fortunes of Men
Hunger will devour one, storm wreck the other
The spear will slay one, and another will perish in battle...
One will fall wingless from the high tree in the forest...
One must walk alone in foriegn places, tread unknown roads among strangers...
One will swing in the crooked gallows, hang in death...
One at the mead-bench will be shorn of life by the swords edge...
To one, good fortune; to end a dole of suffering...
To one joyful youth; to one glory in combat, mastery in warplay...
To one, skill at throwing or shooting; to one, luck at dice...
One will amuse a gathering in the hall, gladden the drinkers at the mead bench...
But one will tame the wild bird, the proud hawk on his fist, until the falcon goes gentle.

An old Anglo-Saxon poem

Sorry

Gura mise tha fo éislean
Moch sa mhaduinn is mi 'g éirigh Sèist
Ò hì shiùbhlainn leat
Hì ri bhò hò ru bhì
Hì ri bhò hò rinn o ho

Ailein Duinn, ò hì shiubhlainn leat
Ma 's e 'n cluasag dhut a' ghaineamh
Ma 's e leabaidh dhut an fheamainn
Ma 's e 'n t-iasg do choinnlean geala
Ma 's e na ròin do luchd-faire
Dh'òlainn deoch ge b' oil le càch e
De dh'fhuil do choim 's tu 'n déidh do bhathadh

Song from the Reach (Gaelic Scot/Irish) as an apology

Fortunes of Men is more of a poem but they would Bards would have played them, Saxons were like that. As soon as I find out how to add atachment I'll put on the lament. (I'm no good with computers)
