The Lyrics

My wife would kill me if I record this song since she absolutely hates how catchy the whistling part is, but I may do it anyway. While researching, I saw that Clash of the Titans was being remade for next year so it is quite fortunate that I beat the rush here :) Perseus, being the airhead he is, decides to describe his adventure to Andromeda while she is still tied up, about to be eaten by the Kraken. Hilarity ensues.
(Whistling)

If I told you things about past
Told you Zeus is my daddy
Would you want to be saved by someone like me?
If you knew ‘twas banished by mom’s dad
On a coffin out to sea
Would you want to be saved by someone like me?

I am tied up here about to die
You are on a horse that flies
I would be saved by someone like you
I don’t care about your quest
Or who you had to best
I would be saved and fly away with you

And I don’t care about Calibos
Or his mother Thetis
And I don’t care about the Scorpions
Living large to sting you
And I don’t care about Medusa
Cause she’s just a stoned head
All I care about is living
Not becoming Kraken food

(Whistling)

I had an adventure with an owl
Metal one named Bubo
Hephaestus made it so I could save you

Do you like my helmet, sword and shield?
The helmet makes me disappear
Why are they all fleeing, do I scare you?

It doesn’t matter what you did
The Kraken is behind you
Open up your sack and pull that head out

And I don’t care about Calibos
Or his mother Thetis
And I don’t care about the Scorpions
Living large to sting you
And I don’t care about Medusa
Cause she’s just a stoned head
All I care about is living
Not becoming Kraken food

And I don’t care about Calibos
Or his mother Thetis
And I don’t care about blind witches
Tricking them to help you
And I don’t care about Medusa
Cause she’s just a stoned head
All I care about is living
Not becoming Kraken food (x4)

LOVED that story. Didn't know about the remake. Can't wait, thought the original was a Harry Haryhausen classic!!!!
