The Lyrics

I heard there was an ogre green
And people mistook him for being mean
But he didn't really care for them, did he?
He went to live in a swamp alone
He made it nice it was his home
The forlorn beast was singing hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Then one day a donkey gray
Bumped him while he ran away
Then hid so that the knights would never find him
He talked until his throat was sore
He talked and talked and talked some more
And the ogre had a headache hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

The ogre found this donkey a pain
Then that night a worse fate came
While he was eating dinner by the fire
It started with the three blind mice
And other creatures sacrificed
He couldn't rid them all out hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

The creatures from each fairy-tale
Told him though 'twas no avail
Some guy named Farquaad had them all evicted
He told them all get off my land
And go right back to where you can
He took the talking donkey hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Well this Farquaad guy was really short
His demeanor's such an awful sort
He picked a wife thanks to the magic mirror
Then sent the ogre on a quest
Who found the princess and felt stressed
Because she was so needy hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Fiona when the time was right
When day had given way to night
A spell that she'd been given, came true
She was an ogre big and green
Her teeth looked ugly her face looked mean
While donkey screamed in terror hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Next morning when Fiona woke
Farquaad came and when he spoke
He wanted her so he could just be king
The ogre and donk had an argument
Finally they had a settlement
And went to crash the wedding hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

The ogre shouted I object
And Farquaad thought he was a wreck
Which made the princess take the form of true love
Then Farquaad wanted her locked back up
The dragon came and ate him up
It's another happy ending hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah
