The Lyrics

For GoT fans only... You've probably noticed the extra syllable in "Lannister" cf "Loca", but if you pronounce it "Lann'ster" it works, well enough to be rhymed with "gangster" and "monster", anyway :-)
She's into her twin brother
Their son's going to be king
Cersei's one scary mother
The queen in King's Landing

Twin Jaime's quite the villain
The one Kingslayer in the land*
Slight change to his early billing:
Now needs a helping hand

Tyrion's not the tallest
He makes up for it with brains
But to survive that crazy life
Need to avoid being slain
'Cause they're all ****ing insane

From Casterly Rock
They're livin' la vida Lannister
Heads on chopping block
Livin' la vida Lannister

Lannisters pay their debts
Though they have sired a monster
Motto: "Hear me roar"
Livin' la vida Lannister
Livin' la vida Lannister
They're livin' la vida Lannister

Joffrey's a teenage kinglet
After his "father" died
More than mad, he's a little psycho
With a taste for homicide

There's Tywin - he's the Daddy
With an iron fist he'll reign
Had his taste of power
And views others with disdain
He's *really* inhumane

Happy family.. not
They're livin' la vida Lannister
Dysfunctional, or what?
Livin' la vida Lannister

They've got gold (a lot)
Vassal's a monster gangster
Always one more plot
Livin' la vida Lannister
Livin' la vida Lannister
They're livin' la vida Lannister


When Tywin gives an order
Then you better had comply
When you play the Game of Thrones
You win.. or you die
A truth that Eddard can't deny


They inspire fear
They're livin' la vida Lannister
Lion beats wolf or deer
Livin' la vida Lannister

Tyrion drinks beer
Then slides off down the bannister
Rains of Castamere
Livin' la vida Lannister

Backside on the throne
They're livin' la vida Lannister
Power base has grown
Livin' la vida Lannister

Could be overthrown
Plotting is rather sinister
They'll call in their loan
Livin' la vida Lannister
Livin' la vida Lannister
They're livin' la vida Lannister



*..at the start of the book, anyway

Damn you Phil. As if I wasn't traumatized enough by the Red Wedding; now I'm going to have visions of Ricky Martin singing "Living La Vida Lann'ster" right before they unleash the hail of arrows :-D

Wait, there's a book?!? Grreat stuff Philbo...."needs a helping hand" heh heh

:) Thanks guys

Callmelennie - sorry, I didn't consider that side-effect. Damn, now you've got me envisioning it, too.

Jonathan - you're not? Why not?

Lord Michael of House Pacholek, Duke of Brunswick - a longer name than comment :-)

Claude - the bastard thing is that the books aren't finished, either. And the way things are going at the moment, they're going to finish the TV series before the books are released (or possibly timed to coincide.. that would be par for the course)

^ because I haven't seen the show yet

Of course, if Ricky Martin had sung your song at the Red Wedding, I'm sure Lady Catelyn would have said, "Somebody shoot me!" (ba doom, :-D) ....... And she wouldn't have had to cry out "Rob! Run!" because the Starks would have cleared the room the instant Ricky opened his yap
