Chorus 3 (B)

(AGAMEMNON exits, offstage.)

CHORUS

Hello Mr. Hero
How nice to see you’ve won
How nice of you to join me now
I see your battle’s done
How nice that you’ve a story
That you would like to tell
How nice, just tell it softly
And I promise not to yell

(CHORUS)
Let’s pretend that you are Zeus
That you’re a swan, but it’s a ruse
If you’re a swan, than I am Leda
And you’ll rape me like a god
You’re still alive, so you’re a god
I can survive, if you’re a god

Thank you Mr. Hero
The honor’s all been mine
The way you killed my brothers
Approaches the divine.
So here I am, I’m your reward
Just give me your command
Let’s fuck atop my father’s grave
He’s buried in the sand.

(CHORUS)
Let’s pretend that you are Zeus
That you’re a swan, but it’s a ruse
If you’re a swan, than I am Leda
And you’ll rape me like a god
You’re still alive, so you’re a god
I can survive, if you’re a god

Don’t want to be a girl in Troy
And have that hero be my boy
Have him pull me by my hair
No. Don’t.  Take me there! 

Let’s pretend that you are Zeus
That you’re a swan, but it’s a ruse
And who cares if it’s the truth
Or if that swan was just a foul youth
Because he raped her like a god
Come on and rape me like a god
Mr Hero, you’re a god.
