The Lyrics

I'm surprised with all of the countless Shakespeare parodies done on Amiright nobody has done one to one of the only other things people are forced to read in English class. I might do one to "Dante's Inferno" too but that would be harder because there isn't a cartoon movie version of that story yet.
Well, I’m Anglo-Saxon
Not Nebraskan
I’ve got my axe so I’m now ready for axin’
I chug mead
Dragons bleed
This epic poem is one you should read

Not a skirt chaser
Women all race here
In Scandinavia I’m their savior
Ready for danger?
It’s stranger
I’m like Chuck Norris but no Texas Ranger

Grendel’s mom just makes me mad
Grendel’s mom will soon be dead!


Grendel invaded
He’s hated
Disrupt my drinkin’ and your death is fated
From your cavern
Come smashed my tavern
Cause I’m a boozer you made me sadder

We’ll show no poise
Hroðgar’s employed
Because we’re fed up we will destroy you
Soon he’s whacked
Head is hacked
Now his mom’s here and wants us as snacks

Grendel’s mom’s one foul lass
Even drunk won’t tap that @ss

Beowulf is one great story
Beowulf you’ve read in class
Beowulf might make those teens sleep
They’re just stupid brats

Me she dreads
She’s soon dead
Won’t fight Grendel’s dad
Chopped them in half
We’ll show some class
And raise a glass, Oh yeah
Will then get slashed, slashed, slashed, slashed

You’ll battle to pay your bar tab
Until that dragon takes its stab

(Oh, Grab your awesome longsword and fight!
Whoa! These demons are going to claw and bite
Oh whack ‘em, smack ‘em, hack ‘em)

In grade school in 1954 I was introduced to Badawulf, a warrior 'who had the strength of twenty lawyers.' This parody was bawdy and vulgar but amusing. Because I was exposed to this at 13 I read parts of the real Beowulf at 16 and majored in medieval English at 19, and eventually took that useless degree to graduate school and became a lawyer. ' "s***!" cried the king; and twenty thousand tin pans hit the floor, and twenty thousand loyal subjects squatted and farted and tried their utmost, for in those days the king's word was law.' When I was 13 that was funny, and today I still smile a little.
