Fhtagn Navidad!

Even the Old Ones deserve a little holiday cheer…

AWAKE YE SCARY GREAT OLD ONES

Awake ye scary great Old Ones let everything dismay!
Remember great Cthulhu shall rise up from R’lyeh
To kill us all with tentacles if we should go his way!
O’ tidings of madness and woe, madness and woe,
O’ tidings of madness and woe! (and great woe)

In Yuggoth and in Aldebaran the great Old Ones were spawned
Imprisoned by the Elder Gods to wait for long eons!
Enticing humans to release them,
Chanting dreadful songs!
O’ tidings of madness and woe, madness and woe,
O’ tidings of madness and woe! (and great woe)

An Arab said “That is not dead which can eternal lie,
And with strange eons you will find that even death may die”!
The great Old Ones will rule once more
Then all will be destroyed!
O’ tidings of madness and woe, madness and woe,
O’ tidings of madness and woe! (and great woe)

      That song will never be the same to me again.

      Are you going to post your dissertation? Sounds interesting!

      • No, I don’t think I will either. Thank you for sharing it :p

        Yes, definitely, once it’s been handed in and graded, etc. Its a lot of fun to write, I always been fascinated by Lovecraft and now I get to delve into his work and motivations.

      That was my intention, but now I can’t hear the original song without singing these lyrics, and it’s been stuck in my head all day, so it kinda backfired.

  7. I read this last night, drunk, during a jack daniels and hindi karaoke Christmas moment. Confused some…well, everyone, but the timing was impeccable.

    Thank you once again, Sister Madly, for the joyous gifts you share with the world.

    Merry Christmas. 🙂
