Grukzan tak budhosh, Mundus ob tak dot,

Ni amal tak Shakutarbik, Mushtof at malzagh,

Lyrics in Common

Grukzan the mighty, Tyrant of the Sea,
The strongest orc you ever did see,
Chosen by Gruumsh!
None he didn't crush!
Burn the land and strike the water,
He led us in the greatest slaughter!
  Verse 1
First came the dwarfs, Hiding in their mountain,
Thinking they were safe with their cannons poundin',
Grukzan didn't care and blew the mountains up!
Next came the humans, their puny little towns
Fleeing to the hills when our boats came around,
Grukzan didn't care and beat them to a pulp!
  Chorus Repeats   Verse 2
Next came the nobles, sleeping in their manor,
For them lots of gold was always the answer,
Grukzan didn't care and burnt them to the ground!
Next came the boats, looking for a fight,
Flying flags of red, blue, black and white,
Grukzan didn't care and they all drowned!
  Chorus Repeats   Verse 3
Next came the wizards, casting from their towers
Making thunder and storms for hours and hours
Grukzan didnt care sailed on laughin'
Last came the Shaqowuth, sitting on its hoard
'You wont beat me' the red beast roared
Grukzan didn't care and smashed that dragon
  Chorus Repeats x2

Grukzan Sulmog or Grukzan's Raid is an orc raiding song about the legendary raid known as The Scourge of Grukzan. As with most raiding songs, Grukzan Sulmog is sung as orcs are rowing their longships to the beat of three large drums and has a call and response structure, with one side of the longship singing one half and the other singing the next, answering the first singers.   The common version is a rough translation, with some liberties taken in an attempt to make the song somewhat more audibly pleasing to the more civilized races, as much as that is possible with orc music.
