The Lyrics

ft. Big Sean, Pusha T, 2 Chainz, & Fuzzy Jones. This is a take on the movie 300. If you haven't seen it here's a link to the Wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/300_(film). Pretty much, the Persia want to take over Greece. The Persian God King Xerxes, sends a messenger to the major city-states of Greece asking for their unconditional surrender. Sparta being... well Sparta, decides to disrespectfully decline Xerxes over and kills his messenger. This sparks a war between Sparta and the great Persian army. The Spartan city-state counsel wouldn't allow the Spartan king Leonidus take the whole Spartan army into war. They only allowed him 300 men to fight the Persian army, thought to number in the millions. They all die, but their courage ignites the fire under the rest of Greece and they ultimately win the war. Characters mentioned in the parody are Ephialtes: Horrible disfigured and deformed Spartan citizen that betrays the Spartan 300 when the decline his joining of the group. Messenger: Xerxes messenger sent to ask for Sparta's surrender, but is murdered by King Leonidus. Xerxes: God king of Persia. Theron: Spartan senator in city counsel, corrputed by Persia. King Leonidus: King of Sparta, fearless leader of the 300. Dilios: Trusted Spartan soldier, injured in battle and asked to return to Sparta and bring the entire army to battle Xerxes, the general that wins the war.
[Ephialtes]
Hook: Well!
It is the killing and the stabbing and the clashing of swords
It is the praying and the praising and the bowing to lords
It is the war cuz when it comes to his reign
Which is a celestial reign
Believe! Believe!

[Theron]
Chorus: O-o-o-o-o-o-okay!
Y’all should bow to Xerxes
He might show you mercy
He’s gonna steal your land so
Please show him that you are worthy
O-o-o-o-o-o-okay!
Y’all should bow to Xerxes
He might show you mercy
He’s gonna steal your land so
Please show him that you are worthy
O-o-o-o-o-o-okay!
Y’all should bow to Xerxes (Bow)
He might show you mercy (Bow)
He’s gonna steal your land so
Please show him that you are worthy
O-o-o-o-o-o-okay!
Y’all should bow to Xerxes
He might show you mercy
He’s gonna steal your land so
Please show him that you are worthy

[Messenger]
Verse 1: Okay
Grab your weapons now, that’s mistake
Whoa, all land and maids, that’s what he’ll take
Went all Persian on you Greeks, that’s a Greek steak
Tragedy for ya, that’s a Greek play
Say nay? Say nay?
He is sure to make you pay-pay
You Spartans gon’ fight?
Gon’ fight, but you’ll go mayday
Fin’ly war games, that will be played less you obey
You Spartans still hatin’!
So much hate you gave us delay
Xerxes taking Sparta
So we’re Spartan slayin’
300 battle cryin’, “Dine in Hell!” they sayin’
They all die, no use of them begging
We cut off their P’s
Persia’s where we’re born and raised in

[Theron]
Chorus: O-o-o-o-o-o-okay!
Y’all should bow to Xerxes
He might show you mercy
He’s gonna steal your land so
Please show him that you are worthy
O-o-o-o-o-o-okay!
Y’all should bow to Xerxes
He might show you mercy
He’s gonna steal your land so
Please show him that you are worthy

[Ephialtes]
Hook: Well!
It is the killing and the stabbing and the clashing of swords
It is the praying and the praising and the bowing to lords
Its it the war cuz when it comes to his reign
Which is a celestial reign
Believe! Believe!

[Xerxes]
Verse 2: Yeah!
It’s war time, so step back, just let us go!
The Immortals, sure will slay, you Spartans whoa!
You’re still stoppin’, dumb Spartans
You fake bronze, drawn abbed dopes!
We’re ripped up too
So you Spartans need more coffins
All we want is some Greek dwellings
All we need is some peek dwellings
You’re out of time, the clock’s run out
We’ll tear you up, we’ll wreak dwellings
Break your necks, forcefulness
Why fight so hard? Ain’t Spartacus!
My infantry kills instantly, this Greek pride is so ludicrous
Peaceful preference, famous war reference
You’ll have loss at those Hot Gates
So you’re “fitter men” make no difference
Woo! Xerxes, is not earthly
Surely, you’ll get no mercy
You didn’t early, bow down to Xerxes
Now die!

[Theron]
Chorus: O-o-o-o-o-o-okay!
Y’all should bow to Xerxes
He might show you mercy
He’s gonna steal your land so
Please show him that you are worthy
O-o-o-o-o-o-okay!
Y’all should bow to Xerxes
He might show you mercy
He’s gonna steal your land so
Please show him that you are worthy

[Ephialtes]
Hook: Well!
It is the killing and the stabbing and the clashing of swords
It is the praying and the praising and the bowing to lords
Its it the war cuz when it comes to his reign
Which is a celestial reign
Believe! Believe!

Bridge: Well!
It is the killing and he stabbing and the clashing of swords
In the Hot Gates
And who have no swords gon’ block out the sun
Cuz when it comes to his reign, it is a celestial reign
That Spartans have blown too many deals
But they do have one more deal left
Cuz they’re about to dine in Hell as they promised

[King Leonidus]
Verse 3: Let the Persian men bring gifts
We’ll throw Persian men off some high cliffs
We like bulldog fights, call us Michael Vick
You know what that mean? We’ll fight ‘til death
He stepped on Spartan land like he’s divine
Tell us give him our loyalty or we will die
Most rulers take over, Xerxes needs make-overs
We at the Gates so which one us gon’ break over
Spill all their blood, but a God King can bleed too
Plus, yo my abs look much better than his do
Screw those Immortals, they died in that movie
Although it’s groovy, his chicks show their boobies
Chop you like sushi, beat you ‘til you’re woozy
Don’t tell me it’s hopeless, cuz Spartans are looney
Xerxes is bleedin’, the battle’s proceedin’
You gon’ see Persians and Spartans stampeding

[Dilios]
Verse 4: Okay
We’re joinin’ the campaign
Gut spilled over like champagne
Kill this and that with a Spartan axe
Choppin’ trees plane like Paul Bunyan
Beatin’ hard like a pumped heart
Slash a man like Walmart
300 kills, Spartan men, now you’re gon’ get some K-smarts
Greek State, go on, “All We Do Is Win” our song
Great Athens, our back havin’, Persians we takin’ them on
Force outward, force outward, all this power on we gon’ force outward
Now our kids tell bold stories, of 300, that faced God’s glory
Greece stayin’, no Xerxes we prayin’
Know the Greeks aren’t playin’
Persia’s ass we’re slayin’

[Theron]
Chorus: O-o-o-o-o-o-okay!
Y’all should bow to Xerxes
He might show you mercy
He’s gonna steal your land so
Please show him that you are worthy
O-o-o-o-o-o-okay!
Y’all should bow to Xerxes
He might show you mercy
He’s gonna steal your land so
Please show him that you are worthy

[Ephialtes]
Hook: Well!
It is the killing and the stabbing and the clashing of swords
It is the praying and the praising and the bowing to lords
Its it the war cuz when it comes to his reign
Which is a celestial reign
Believe! Believe!
Well!
It is the killing and the stabbing and the clashing of swords
It is the praying and the praising and the bowing to lords
Its it the war cuz when it comes to his reign
Which is a celestial reign
Believe! Believe!...

Epic parody although people still have to look up history rather than relying on the movie based from a comic based from a movie. 555 arrows fired with Leonidas' head mounted on a stick still telling Xerxes that he will lose.

This was a job of epic proportion and you pulled it off beautifully! (But I must admit that 'hook' in the OS gave me the willies)
Porfle Popnecker - September 23, 2012 - Report this comment
Outstanding job!
Peregrin - September 24, 2012 - Report this comment
Mammoth epic here! I believe! Xerxes told me so!

I couldnt sit through this OS...Awful. Awful. Awful. But you get high props from me for synopsizing the story. If it gets the kids to start digging Grecian history (sorta), then so be it.

(ABC) Retelling the plot of a movie based off a comic based off real-life events in the space of a rap song? This is madness! Madness? THIS! IS! AMIRIGHT!!! Couldn't help myself. Anyway, great job here, although I probably would've gotten into it more if I had, you know, seen the movie. Still, 555-worthy!
brightCAP - September 26, 2012 - Report this comment
Whew, that was quite a feat! My favorite line: "Woo! Xerxes, is not earthly." The hook was great, too.

Nice work...not a huge Kanye fan, but you did a nice job here.
Matthias - September 26, 2012 - Report this comment
Yeah... This original song is pretty awful but it's not as awful as watching a bunch of ripped oiled up guys stabbing their "spears" into other guys. Good parody of a terrible movie though.
