The Lyrics

(Buck Mulligan:)
In blood and ouns
Shut your eyes gents
And 'Ulysses'
Will now begin
Oh, bless me lord
I'm self-assured
And yet I know
This lowly nerd

Mahone, Mahone, go pogue mahone!
Mahone, Mahone, go pogue mahone!
Mahone, Mahone, go pogue mahone!
Mahone, Mahone, Mahone

Pluck my eyes out, saints preserve us!
He here is now
Stephen Dedalus!
Was a Jesuit
So pretentious
Here come on now
Entertain us
He's a boho
Low on mojo
Shares our condo
In Martello
Yeah!

(STEPHEN:)
I teach at school
I'm not the best
Buck Milligan is such a pest
I get drunk with so-called friends
Or go walk Sandymount Strand

A home, a home, a home
I've no home
A home, a home, a home
I've no home
No home, no home, no home

With my eyes closed, it's more dangerous
Here I am now
Stephen Dedalus!
I feel lucid, efficacious
Here we now
Educate us
Modality
When visible
Surely is in-
Eluctable!
Yeah!

It's Agenbite
Of Inwit, yes
"Remorse of conscience"
Full of bile
I find it hard
To enjoy life
I blame my mother
'Cause she died

Oh no, oh no, oh no
So low
Oh no, oh no, oh no
So low
Oh no, oh no, oh no...

With my ashplant
I'm so dangerous
Where am I now?
Stephen Dedalus!
I have lost it
I feel nauseous
Mother's ghost now
It berates us
I am blotto
Who was Plato?
Ecce homo
Is my credo!

Liliata
Rutialiantium
Non servium
You hyena
Too-la rula!
Too-la rula!
Alleluia!

NOTHUNGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!

Been meaning to read Ulysses for years. This may inspire me to do it. 5s. I was thinking of using "ineluctable" in a parody, but you beat me to it.

Makes no sense to me because I also DKTOS, but I can tell that you put a fair amount of work in it. Not bad.

I take it from the title, Aggro, that you're (re)serializing "Ulysses," this time as a musical. That's a hell of an effort. I've always been too intimidated by the novel to read it, so, unfortunately, most of this blows right over my head. I do know the OS, though, so I can appreciate what you've done with that. I especially like your choruses. Also, I guarantee that this is the only month we'll have two SOTM entries about Ulysses.

SOTM - I get the title, and some parts, but not the full thing here, I'll have to admit.

Peter said: "I get the title, and some parts, but not the full thing here, I'll have to admit." That's what most people say about the novel, too!I realize this was not the most popular topic, but it was my favorite of my stuff this month. Thanks for all the benefits of the doubt and all. :)

(SOTM) I'vre got to admire you for taking on such a literary challenge, Agri...but unfortunately, it's wasted on a pleb like me. Nice effort anyway.

(SOTM) I do know TOS, very well done with some incredible substitutions on the lyrics. Great job too varying the repeat parts.

(SOTM) wow, I tried reading it for Uni but didn't make it - I'm already impressed that you obviously managed to - great effort on the short lines, Agri

SOTM - Good pacing, but I don't know about the subject, so I won't vote.

(SOTM) Great job with this one, Agri. I too love the choruses especially.

(SOTM) Dedalicious work, Aggry. Always a fun OS to read parodies along to.
Larry Hensley - October 28, 2005 - Report this comment
(SOTM) Never read it, but good job with parodying the original.
Claude Prez - October 28, 2005 - Report this comment
I never read "Ulysses". But at camp, I had a coach who used to read it to us. Something about wanting no sissies. It worked; we beat him to death with croquet mallets. No, seriously, I made it through about half a page of that thing before I gave up. I used to love the Pogues though, does that count? Very interesting read, though, and I'm probably going to go around saying "Pluck my eyes out!" all day long. Very good.

SOTM...Reading James Joyce was one of the most painful parts of earning my degree...(second only to reading Ezra Pound, who, go figure, was Joyce's biggest fan)...so the fact that you made some sense out of it...well, I commend you. Nice work, Agri...I really did enjoy this...=)

I'm not familiar with the story but your parody gives me the distinct feeling that I missed out on something interesting to say the least. Some pacing mis-steps but good job in using all them multi-syllable names.

555, love the playful word setup.

See above. Mentioned this one in your tribute as well, Agri. Just the idea of taking this song and mixing in "Ulysses" is a tribute to your originality. I'm going through and making sure I've also paid tribute to you by voting.

(ABC4-J) Great Ulyssesis analysis magnifigus. Great write Agri.
Matthias - January 03, 2008 - Report this comment
I don't know much about "Ulyssesis", but if you do one about the Odysessy I'll be all over that, seeing as I read that one in High School.

(ABC4-J) Clearly there's a whole world of...whatever this parody is about - that I have yet to discover. Seeing as I'm Mr-I-Live-Under-A-Rock, I very much doubt it. Oh well.

(J) See above - I always like a good SLTS parody.

(ABC) I think it paces pretty well, and I am familiar to a limited extent with the topic. I think all in all it was a good parody but a few lines kinda lost me a little.
Invisible Boy - January 09, 2008 - Report this comment
(ABC-J) I have to admit, I needed to get the Cliff Notes out for this one. It was great to see you kick it up an intellectual notch or two. Ecce homo qui est Agrimorfee.
