The Lyrics

So, this Dedalus guy
Sure can build a maze, I'm totally lost
It's been eating a whole
Lot of young greeks
And now I seek it so I can slay
This bullish beast, defeat is clearly not my fate

I'll smite the big Minotaur
Since that is what heroes ought to do
Though it seems unwinnable
I've made this ride to fight
I'm hardly afraid at all
Cause if I feel terror there's a chance
I won't fight as well as planned
When I see the Minotaur
Hey, I just wet my pants

I will not say that happened
I want to seem brave
Not a fearful kid
I hear a monster's breath
Now it's time to face
This fearsome beast that waits for me there
Worked up some courage now I'm going in it's lair

I'm fighting the Minotaur
Wish I could have found it while it snoozed
And no one could win before
When they and it would fight
Though smart men would stay at home
I know I'll get nowhere with my brains
I must go the combat way
I just stabbed the minotaur
Hey, I killed it hooray

It seems now
I must get back to Athens
It would be quite bad if
I starved in this Labyrinth
But I traced my way with string
From the daughter of the king

The frightening Minotaur
Because of me will not cause more doom
My name will be mythical
From my heroic fight
They'll start a parade I'm sure
For me when I get back onto land
I can't wait to see my dad
To tell him that things are good
Great, our flag is still black
If you don't know the story... after Theseus' father, Aegeus, sees the black flag he jumps into the ocean, which then gets the name of the Aegean Sea
