The Lyrics

In the Third Circle, Dante, led by his guide Virgil, sees the fate of gluttons like his friend from Florence named ‘Ciacco’ (the equivalent of ‘Piggy’). No fire used for torture here; the climate sounds like Toronto in March. The poor souls confined here in the freezing mud are tormented by a demonic three-headed dog, Cerberus. I took some liberties with Ciacco’s tale; in the original, he discusses the complex politics of 14th century Florence. The details I provided re Ciacco's gluttonous exploits are imagined. Eschatology is the part of theology concerned with final judgment and the destiny of the soul. Étouffée is a delicious Louisiana dish of seafood, usually crayfish, in a Cajun roux sauce.
Sono al terzo cerchio
Dov'è'l crudele Cerbero
La pena di golosi; mi veggio intorno
Novi tormentati.

Dante go and see
Dante go and see
Dante go and see what’s in Circle Three -
They punish gluttony.

Virge led me way down here
Virge brought me way down here
Another Ring of Fear, fiend in charge appear
Be a three-headed dog.

Thermostat set low
Pouring rain, hail, snow
Sinners grovel, sit; freezing mud, like sh*t
And mean three-headed dog.

Guy who waves hello -
Dante used to know,
‘Ciacco’, brought so low; he’s a Florentine
He tells his story, so …..

“All you eat, sign say
Crayfish étouffée
Stayed all day and ate food from New Orleans
Now Circle Three’s my fate.”

Virgil’s prophecy -
Eschatology -
Our friend ‘Piggy’ sit in that freezing sh*t
‘Til final trumpet blow.

So baby, please don’t stray
Don’t pig out that way
Don’t eat étouffée down in New Orleans
Or Circle Three’s your fate.
