Rewriting lyrics #1.

As I have recently discovered on my journey, most music is bad. I have decided to try and better a song by improving the lyrics. I am not trying to trivialise the events of the past, nor is this written because of the current conflict in Syria. Although I wayfare a lot, my interest in Eastern politics is slim to none.

Enya – Orinoco Flow.

This is a song I hate with a passion (reasons: boring, Enya, slow, Enya, depressing, Enya), so I have attempted to make it appeal more to 12th century Middle Eastern warriors, the target audience of my blog.

Let him sail, let him sail,
Let the Sultan’s army grow,
Let the beast, let him feast,
On the shores of Da-mas-cus.
Let him sail, let him sail,
Let him crush the opposition,
Let the beast, let him feast,
With a war cry of Yalla Yalla!


Fun fact of the day: Ṣalāḥ al-Dīn Yūsuf ibn Ayyūb (Arabic: صلاح الدين يوسف بن أيوب‎, Ṣalāḥ al-Dīn Yūsuf ibn Ayyūb, Kurdish: سه‌لاحه‌دین ئه‌یوبی, Selah’edînê Eyubî) (1137/1138 – March 4, 1193), better known in the Western world as Saladin, was the first Sultan of Egypt and Syria and the founder of the Ayyubid dynasty. A Muslim of Kurdish origins, Saladin led Islamic opposition against the European Crusaders in the Levant. At the height of his power, his sultanate included Egypt, Syria, Mesopotamia, Hejaz, Yemen, and parts of North Africa.

The Walrus has sang.
