Heyo! SONGLYRICS just got interactive. Highlight. Review: RIFF-it. RIFF-it good.
[Music - Andersen - lyrics - Frederiksen]
A song about a toast to a dead warrior, followed by a promise to deliver a great act of courage. The god Brage was the god of poetry and the bæger (literally the beaker) drunk in his honour is the actual toast. The oath was called a Brageløfte (Brage-oath) and is probably the origin of the English verb "to brag".]
