You know us as the free men,
you know us as the Franks,
if you wanna be free too
then join, let’s close ranks.

Our cows on the neadows and corn on the fields
that’s our lifestyle, it brings us rich yields,
With sword, spear and shield we protect our land,
and if we’re in need, our god Loll gives a hand.

We are confidently strong, we are the Frankish power,
Your time has come to join us now it is your very hour.

You know us as the free men,
you know us as the Franks,
if you wanna be free too
then join, let’s close ranks.

We’re farmers and shepherds and warriors too,
to our king we stand if a war is to be due.
We are loyal and peaceful but if there’s a threat,
we slaughter relentless without a regret.

We are confidently strong, we are the Frankish power,
Your time has come to join us now it is your very hour.

You know us as the free men,
you know us as the Franks,
if you wanna be free too
then join, let’s close ranks.

We Franks stand for freedom, for wealth and for peace,
all those who menace us soon will decease.
Lets venerate Loll, may he grant us good crop,
my friends, become Franks too, we welcome your swap.

We are confidently strong, we are the Frankish power,
Your time has come to join us now it is your very hour.

You know us as the free men,
you know us as the Franks,
if you wanna be free too
then join, let’s close ranks.
