Here is a Tom Lehrer song for Lent. She's My Girl The girl that I lament for,The girl my money's spent for,The girl my back is bent for,The girl I owe the rent for,The girl I gave up Lent forIs the girl that heaven meant for me.
My friend Steve "Tiny" Robinson, a Vietnam-era SEAL of gigantic size who was also a blacksmith before arthritis made him give it up, wrote alternative lyrics to the "Those Were the Days" tune."The Viking Fighting Man"by "Tiny" RobinsonMany years ago, when I was younger,Other men would look at me and say,'You are such a puny little fellow.'How can you survive another day?'But then I learned to fight with shield and longsword,To swing and axe, and use a sharp spear too.I'd split a warrior's skull from top to bottom,and then before he fell, I'd run him through.CHORUSI am a fighting man, a Viking fighting man,I drink and wench to pass the time away,I live the live I choose, I fight and never lose,I kill them all... and then I sail away.I sailed upon the sea with Viking Warriors,I learned to drink intoxicating brew,I fought in foreign lands for gold and silver,And soon I was a Viking Warrior too!I took all my pleasures where it pleased me,Wine and golden treasures, slaves who'd shreik,I learned that women loved a Viking warrior,If he'd had a bath within the week...CHORUSAnd now my twilight years, they are upon me,And my thinning hair is silver grey;But I'll look back upon my battles,And smile, and raise my glass, and I will say:I am a fighting man, a Viking fighting man,I drink and wench to pass the time away.I live the live I choose, I fight and never lose,I killed them all... and then I sailed away.
Those are both great! Kinda like those Viking lyrics.
