lyrics

Trojan horse and war is over.
Story, legend, told by Homer.
Helen went home with Menelaus
This man is lost, it is the King Odysseus!

Oh Ithaca! Oh take me home!
My men are dying and I’m lost at sea.
Oh Ithaca! My family!
Telemachus and Penelope!

Son of Poseidon, one-eyed wonder.
Giant angry with small soldiers.
Drink wine, we’ll wait, for you to fall asleep!
We’ll poke your eye out and pretend that we are sheep
I hear Sirens singing their best.
I see Sirens flashing their breasts.
Hold me; tie me, to the ship’s mast!
Every one of you must plug your ears with wax.

Oh Ithaca! Oh take me home!
My men are dying and I’m lost at sea.
Oh Ithaca! My family!
Telemachus and Penelope!

Ithaca is my home! Ithaca is my home!
And without you I feel so alone!
Ithaca is my home!

Olympus, please! Look down on me!
Zeus, Apollo, Aphrodi-ite!
So guide me West to take me home.
Save me from this *itch, Caly-ypso.
Oh Ithaca, my wife and son!
Arrows fly while the suitors run.
Oh Ithaca! The land I love!

I’ll return to claim my Kingdom!
I’ll return to claim my Kingdom!
I’ll return to claim my Kingdom!
