The Lyrics

In year three-two-three BC, assembled the Diadochs...
Is this the real life?
Is this just history?
I am the big guy
with dreams of divinity
I've conquered the lands
led troops and warbands and seen -
I'm just a freak guy, I need some sympathy
because I'm easy on, easy off
little soft, little tough
Anyway, the fever's - taking'way the life from me...

Daddy, I just tamed a horse -
he was scared just like a heck,
I rode with shadow to his back
Daddy, I want to ride to war
I want to lead the cavalry, you know
Daddy - o - o -o
didn't mean to make a coup
please take me back to court this time next year
Carry on, carry on, as you're the King, my Daddy -

Too late, his time did come
stabbed by Pausanias
dying in my arms on grass
Hello everyobody - I am now the king
Gonna lead you all to war and break the truce -
Mama o - o -o - o (any way the war goes)
I want to rule the world
I sometimes think my real dad was a god

I see humonguous continent of a land -
Persia, Asia, will you do the resistance
Phalanx and agema, winning Charoneia, yeah!
Gaugamela (Gaugamela!)
Gaugamela (Gaugamela!)
Gaugamela cheerio! - Woe Darius!

But I'm just a young boy and boys only love me-
[He's just a screwed boy from a broken family]
Why is my life such a monstrosity -
Parthia, India, will my army go
It's enough! No-,we will no longer go - let us home!
It's enough! No-,we will no longer go - let us home!
It's enough! No-,we will no longer go - let us home!
Will no longer go-let's go home
Will no longer go let's go home
It's Babylon,it's Babylon,it's Babylon that's where we go-
My wife Roxanne has a baby put aside for me,for me,for me

So I thought I could conquer the world in my lifetime
So I thought till Hephastion did get sick and die...
Oh deities! Can't do this to me, deities!
Just gotta get out - just gotta get right outta here -

Nothing really survives
Anyone can see,
Nothing really survives,
nothing really survive past me,

Any way the war goes....

Yup, this song is about Alexander the Great. Talk about dysfunctional family! It was just that I thought parodizing Bohemian Rhapsody is in a sense the ultimate parody - and after seeing Oliver stone film "Alexander" I thought his story just cries for a tribute. Once I had finished this song, I thought "why not write a true "Bohemian" rhapsody as well? All in all, it took me a total of four hours to write them both.

Mama, oo-woo-woo-woo (An-ge-li-na-Jo-lie...) ... ... ... Uh, where was I? Oh, yeah. Got distracted for a moment. Gotta love them history parodies, like Phil Alexander's "Homerian Rhapsody" and my own "Cleopatra." This goes right up there and makes it a triumverate.
