The Lyrics

Bacchus buys rounds for deities
At Olympus’ party top,
Romanophile, he is using the
Name from land of the godpop.

You will get a gents-non-mellow feeling when you hear
Voices raised with each wine swallow—
Decked by Ares is Apollo.

Raucousness found in deities
With their gabby, grabby plays. . .
Dancing, romancing randily
In their juiced grope-passioned ways.

Bacchus buys round for deities
Who carouse and drink and sing,
And sometimes when they get pie-eyed
They will do some quarreling.

Today’s there’s a sentimental feeling gods were here.
Voices raised, treasury hollow;
Restlessness is bound to follow.

Gods ain’t around for bankruptcy;
These ain’t happy Hellas days.
The world wonders, will Greek currency
Go the new old Drachma way?

Very original take on the OS, with some cracking good lines. I'm not gonna think too deeply about the 'gents non-mellow feeling' though, if it's all the same to you...!

A "classic" old time parody with lots of lovely word play: "juice-grope passioned ways" & "New old Dracha ways" are especially nice. Good tie in with current Greek problems.
