The Bardic Hydra Show


Lyrics: Master John Inchingham            


On the peak of Mount Parnasus
In the golden days of Greece
There dwelt a beast named Homer
Whose heads tallied three times three
Sing, recite or dance, tell tale of woe
It's the Bardic Hydra Show.

Yes Homer was a hydra
But his soul knew right from wrong
Instead of carnage he liked poetry
And bawdy drinking song
Sing, recite or dance, tell tale of woe
It's the Bardic Hydra Show.

The nine muses taught that monster
Music and some theatrics
Lyrics, star lore, hymns and history,
And bloody long epics
Sing, recite or dance, tell tale of woe
It's the Bardic Hydra Show.

When the Greeks got bored they'd journey
Up to Homer's high domain
Where every night they said those hydra heads
Took turns to entertain
Sing, recite or dance, tell tale of woe
It's the Bardic Hydra Show.

'tongue mandolin interlude'

If you visit Mount Parnasus
No beast you'll find today
Cause old Homer came down years ago
And joined the SCA
Sing, recite or dance, tell tale of woe
It's the Bardic Hydra Show.

Sing, recite or dance, tell tale of woe
It's the Bardic Hydra Show.
