ragnar-anchorage:

I like musicals. Sweeney Todd, Phantom of the Opera etc etc…I also like the awesome cosmically malignant tales of H.P. Lovecraft. What’s better than either? BOTH! That’s right, an H.P Lovecraft musical. Super-cool! Song is “If I Were A Deep One” from the musical “A Shoggoth On The Roof”, sung to the tune of “If I Were A Rich Man” from “A Fiddler On The Roof”. Real original ain’t it? Anyhoo, I’ve posted the lyrics up so you too can sing along (I know I will!) Feel free to make your own squelchy noises, the more the merrier! Oh, how I wish I was a Deep One….

“If I Were A Deep One”

Music by Jerry Bock and Lyrics by “He Who (For Legal Reasons) Must Not Be Named”**

If I were a Deep One

Blub blub blub blub blub blub blub blub blub blub blub blub blub blub blub

All day long I’d swim beneath the sea,

If I were a Deep One

Terrify the tourists,

Blub blub blub blub blub blub blub blub blub blub blub blub blub blub blub

If I were, an icky icky fish, scaly slippery froglike kind of man

I’d make my lair a deep dark cave with some fungus,

Right in the heart o’ Devil’s Reef

That foul abode of pestilent coral walls

The ramulose and arabesque floriations

Spiralling so far beyond belief

With ichor seeping from my chamber halls,

I’d fill the reef with wrecks and corpses and ships

And men for my friends to see and hear

Begging mercy as water fills their lungs

And each loud “AHHH!” and “EEE!” and “Help me god NO!”

Would scare off the townsfolk far and near

As if to say there live the Deep Ones!

[aaeh]

If I were a Deep One!

Blub blub blub blub blub blub blub blub bloody boody bloody blub

All day long I’d swim beneath the sea, if I were a Deep One

Drag away some tourists,

Blub blub blub blub blub blub blub blub bloody bloody bloody blood!

If I were an icky icky fish, scaly slippery froglike kind-a-man!

I see my kin the Marshes hopping like some fish-frog things,

Things with their bulging milky eyes,

Worshipping Dagon with the unholy rites,

I see them putting on crowns and shuffling like a Shoggoth,

Ah what a hellish sight they are!

Croaking at the sea both day and night!

The most psychotic men in town would

Come a-lookin fer me!

They would ask me to adjure them, like the Mad Arab himself,

If you please, Old Man Marsh O Tell me! Old Man Marsh,

Asking questions that would drive the man insane,

Blub blub blub blub blub blub bluuub

And it won’t make one bit of difference, if’n I answer right or wrong,

When you’re deep they think you really know

If I were a fish, I’d have the gills that I lack,

To swim down below the deep R’lyeh

And maybe have a seat on Cthulhu’s tomb

And I’d discuss the R’lyeh text with

Some Deep One friends countless hours every day

Fixin’ fer the humans’ final doom!

[ahhh!]

If I were a Deep One

Blub blub blub blub blub blub blub blub bloody body bubbly blood!

All day long I’d swim beneath the sea, if I were a Deep One!

Get to eat the tourists,

Blub blub blub blub blub blub blub blub bobbing bodies bloody blub!

Cthulhu you make the people run

You saw fit that flippers have I none

Don’t you reckon that I’d get more done

If I were a Deep One!

[blb blb blb blb blb blb blip blblblb]
