about

Dedicated to the Duke Theseus of Athens. He wooed his bride Hippolyta with his sword doing her injuries. What a guy.

lyrics

“The Sword of Theseus”
By Dorian’s Organ

Oh some swords are long and thin
Some swords are short and thick
Some swords just plunge right in
Some swords don’t make a nick.

Oh he wooed her with his sword
Now he’ll wed her with his soul
She’s the scabbard for this Lord
She’s the banner on his pole.

His sword is known throughout the lands
So big he has to take it in two hands
It’s soft as silk, but hard as steel
It’s made a lot of Athens squeal.

Theseus
Theseus
With his sword he is a genius

But his lady wears a shield
Her gate is locked and barred
Amazon doors never yield
Unless you bang so very hard.

Oh he wooed her with his blade
And now he’ll take her for a ride
Wedding fruit will soon be laid
So cut the peach and taste inside.

His sword is known throughout the lands
So big he has to take it in two hands
It’s soft as silk, but hard as steel
It’s made a lot of Athens squeal.

His sword is known throughout the worlds
Loved by himself, by men and by the girls
It’s hurt a few, it’s settled scores
He even stuck it in the Minotaur

Theseus
Theseus
With his sword he is a genius

about

Dorian's Organ Stratford Upon Avon, UK

Hey you beautiful people. My name is Dorian and I like to play with my organ, in public, for at least 45 minutes at a time. And yes people like to watch. Why? They like the way it makes them feel inside baby. I'm hoping to play at the wedding of Duke Theseus of Athens to the Amazonian Hippolyta. Search out there for #dream40 for more beautiful work people. Do it! ... more
