The Lyrics

Many of you probably know the story of Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream". It's a classic comedy about love lost, and love gained. As told by Kid Rock as Puck the fairy prankster, and you get a fun time. If you're unfamiliar with this play, please check it out, it's great!
Verse 1: It was 500 BC
There were two youths in Ancient Greece
Caught somewhere between their love and law
She’s in love with thee, but well her father disagrees
It’s midsummer time for thine fair Hermia
Her hearts screams Lysander
He who understands her
But her dad says nope, you’ll wed Demetrius
Which makes Helena so upset
Oh man this love web’s intricate
A tale as old as time to relieve us

Chorus: Man, they were nubile silly things
Shouting words of sweet nothings
Claiming love doth have a wake that cannot be stopped
Thinking that their luck’s the poorest
They flee into the forest
Praying they will be together
Midsummer long
Praying they will be together
Midsummer long

Verse 2: Running quickly, feeling good
But there’s a danger in these woods
Who won’t have a second thought to play a joke
They rule this do-minion
And wouldn’t miss a chance for fun
You won’t know if you had dreamt or awoke

Chorus: While they were moving through the sticks
These fairies playing funny tricks
Having fun at the expense of what’s right and wrong
Squeezing juices out of flowers
With mystic loving powers
Using mischief causing drama
Midsummer long
Using mischief causing drama
Midsummer long

Shakespeare comedy yeah!

[Instrumental Break]

Verse 3: Now everything seems strange
Because our lovers hearts have changed
Now Hermia has lost love from both men
It’s odd how love has grown
Guess your heart is not your own
Wait that man has got a horse on top his head
Wait is that a man with a horse head?!

Chorus: And they are fighting for this Miss
Yes, sword fighting to impress
Maybe trick’s been being played just a tad too long
Didn’t mean to cause such sorrow
Be all fixed up tomorrow
Be with their inamorata
Midsummer long

Chorus: When they awoke they were free
To be in love with whom they please
Kiss and hug out by the lake without fear of law
Thank the fairies for the journey
There is no need to hurry
In this great Greek panorama
Midsummer long… (Shakespeare yeah!)

In this great Greek panorama
Midsummer long… (Shakespeare yeah!)
In this great Greek panorama
Midsummer long… (Shakespeare yeah!)
In this great Greek panorama
Midsummer long… (Midsummer long!)
In this great Greek panorama
Midsummer long!

Outro: Midsummer long!
In this great Greek huge panorama, yeah
All midsummer long…
I imagined this whole think with a back-up fairy choir. Epic if I do say so myself. If you enjoyed this rendition of a Shakespeare staple, become a fan by following me on Facebook and Twitter where you can get all the exclusive Blaydeman news and releases the instant they're posted!

3 fives or not 3 fives that is the question and the answer of course is 3 fives. This was a pretty fun parody with an original topic and a great retelling of this epic classic play.

Puck is a troll in that play but I doubt he'd give a puck ;)

When I saw that this was going to be a Shakespeare-themed parody, I was instantly concerned because I wouldn't know the source material. However, you explained it so thoroughly, that it made it so enjoyable. Very well written, and it's funny to think of Kid Rock in a fairy costume singing about Shakespeare. Well done!

Nicely done, harkens me back to the legendary Spaff.com parody "Shakesperian Pie". I saw the movie, which had a slightly more modern re-upping, but your synopsis summed it well. And like Abbott said, making Kid Rock sing this is an additional hoot. 555

(Artistry) All I knew about the play beforehand was that it involved fairy-induced partner-swapping antics and a dude with a horse's head for a head. Clearly that's all I needed cause I thoroughly enjoyed this parody! 555!
