Saboteurs

Saboteurs – Lyrics

Music by: Brodén / Text by: Brodén / Sundström

Lyrics:

Dropped down to a world of ice
A platoe of frozen lakes
A Nazi place of doom in their sights
Training camps on Scottish Heights
To commando saboteurs
A mission of their lives lies ahead

[Chorus:]
Called in to serve
And they knew what to do
They were the heroes of the cold

Warrior soul, they signed a book of history
They played a leading role to win the 2nd war

Allied time was running short
They would race against the bomb
And hours turned to days, time passed on
As the nature Test their strength
They would fight through night and day
To live amongst the wild, stay alive

Called in to serve
And they knew what to do
They were the heroes of the cold

Warrior soul, they signed a book of history
They played a leading role to win the 2nd war

Heroes of the telemark
Carry viking blood in veins
Warriors of the northern land
They live forever more [x2]

Called in to serve
And they knew what to do
They were the heroes of the cold

Warrior soul!

Warrior soul, they signed a book of history
They played a leading role to win the 2nd war [x2]

Historic fact:

The Norwegian Heavy Water Sabotage was a series of action undertaken by Norwegian saboteurs in 1934 at Vemork, Norway, during World War Two to prevent the German nuclear energy project from acquiring heavy water, which could have been used by the Nazis to produce nuclear weapons.

In February 1943, following a failed British attempt to destroy the Facility, a team of SOE-trained Norwegian commandos succeeded in destroying the production facility. It was the most successful act of Sabotage in all of WW2.
