The Lyrics

Mythical Myst'ry
It's Roman Hist'ry
Mythical Myst'ry
Greeks wrote frequently
Mythical Myst'ry
Heroes, Heroines
Mythical Myst'ry
Please teach it to me

Aphrodite
Goddess so lovely
Zeus Almighty
Not played by Jim Carey

Well
All's not lost
Cults, worshiping his face
You can't get in this place

He holds bolts of lighting in his hand
Umm... God of thunder...
Angry-he'll strike from Space

well ain't this a wond'rous place

Mythical Myst'ry
Watch out for Hades
Mythical Myst'ry
Pandora's sexy
Mythical Myst'ry
Cupid loves kisseys
Mythical Myst'ry
Watch for Hercules

Angry Hades
God of Hell's fury
Swift foot Hermes
What do they want from me??

Neptune
The sea waters have gone so rough
I know you can calm these waves down for sure
Please help me to that effect
I couldn't believe it

The waves stopped, now I'm breathless
How cool
He led Atlantis in a victorious battle
An Unbeatable race
An Unbeatable race

So
God of Sky
Zeus born to Cronus and Rhea
was saved
fought his old father
jealous wife Hera we know
Who's that
Is that Nike we see near his place?
The Titans, they fell to his power!
Gods said
ugh
They said
He took over by Gaia's oracle
I said
It's just a myth I think
He soon married Metis
He had Apollo-his son
I put it off as long as I could.
He was unfaithful so long
you know
Hera got so angry
She got revenge on many

Goddess of love; beauty
She holds your heart in her hand
She'll make you lust at her face
Just gaze
Her enchanted face
What fun!
Her looks-eternal
As you see her walk
You'll want to get into it
You lust
You want her
I said
What man, she'll live on forever
She's not really my type
Anyway
She had lots of people worship
her head

look, look...
It is Mars, God of War coming
His sons made Rome you know
He also caused barren nature to grow
He's got a all out shield
He protects cattle-and spring
He loved seeing mortals kill each other
but
Homer saw
that he was a bloodstained God
It's quite clear why
The Romans loved to conquer
and they worshiped Mars the most
Cause they knew
they would need his glorious rage on the field you know
They had deep fears
Gods so angry

Mythical Myst'ry
It's kinda silly
Mythical Myst'ry
It's kinda silly

Looks like a tough song to parody and a tricky topic to work with as well. You put them together which means you must have the balls of Zeus or something.

BADave - Epic! I also appreciate using either the Greek or Roman names to make them fit more easily. BTW, Bacchus has drowned more souls than Neptune. ;D

I know this song very well, and I'll have to give you an A for effort. The little monologues between the choruses are especially tough, so tough I'd never expect anyone to try matching the rhythms and the words. Nice work with a not-so-easy lyric. So don't be Belew.

Thank you everyone!!

(Artistry) i talked in the thread about taking on an artist that isnt particularly interesting or fun and making something decent out of that frustration. You did it here, man. Not a funny parody, mind you, but extremely interesting with the style of the music.

(Artistry) I don't know how you did it, but WOW!

(Artistry) Nice job mixing a meandering song with a tricky topic, particularly with the talky bits. I agree with your assessment of Greek/Roman legends as "kinda silly", though I think Eddie Izzard put it best: "all the Greek myths you see, it looks like they were written by someone with an enormous bag of weed". 555!

(Artistry) If anyone wants to know more about the Greek and Roman gods, they can watch the multi-part documentary titled Xena: Warrior Princess. Herculean effort here.
