The Dwarves' battle song

You know you're officially spending too much time on all things fantasy when... a socialist drinking song makes you think of Tolkienesque Dwarves on their way to epic battle. :D Hence: a very loose translation of "Wat zullen we drinken", to the tones of Son ar chistr.
I think I also officially have too much time on my hands.

What shall we be drinking, seven days and nights,
what shall we be drinking, such a thirst!
There is enough for every man, so let us drink as one,
Tap the keg my friend! Yea we will drink as one, not alone!

Then we will be working, seven days and nights,
then we will be working, all for all!
There will be work for every man, so let us work as one,
seven days and nights! Yea we will work as one, not alone!

But first we must battle, no one knows how long,
but first we must battle, for our doom!
For the freedom of every man, so let us fight as one,
together we are strong! Yea let us fight as one, not alone!
