Sing to the tune of "Im A Believer" by The Monkees

suomiknnytys2.jpg


I throught Christ was only true in fairy tales
Lies for someone else but not for me
Priest was out to convert me
Thats the way he speaks
Inquisition haunted all my dreams

suomikatolistuu2.jpg


Then I saw the light, now Im a believer
Not a trace, of thought in my mind
Im in church, Im a believer
I couldnt leave there if I tried

suomiknnytys1.jpg


I throught religion was pretty much, a chosen thing
Seems the more I think, the less I eat
Whats the use in praying
What you get is lame
When I needed shaman I got a priest

suomikatolistuu.jpg


Then I saw the light, now Im a believer
Not a trace, of thought in my mind
Im in church, Im a believer
I couldnt leave there if I tried

Priest was out to convert me
Thats the way he speaks
Inquisition haunted all my dreams

Then I saw the light, now Im a believer
Not a trace, of thought in my mind
Im in church, Im a believer
I couldnt leave there if I tried

Then I saw the light, now Im a believer
Not a trace, of thought in my mind
Im a believer, Im a believer, Im a believer

Blimey. You weren't kidding about the speed of the updates. Still loving it. Keep it coming. How about a bit of 'Stand by Me' by Ben E. King? :cool:

Oh my gosh! This song's my favorite so far. These are really clever :D

"Hey Pope, don't make it bad" = Hey Jude by the Beatles :) . I really hate the song, though, because I went to the Mercado in San Antonio (Texas) and there was a Peruvian flute player who played Hey Jude twice, and then went on coffee break and put his CD on and the CD played Hey Jude, and then he came back and played it again and it drove me BONKERS :mad: :wacko: :D So yeah, in case you were wondering, you shouldn't play the Beatles on a panflute.

Now that was the hardest one this far. Well, not actually doing that but it took me long, long time of messing with other songs like Alice Coopers "Poison" until I got bored and ended up with that.

And on to replies.

Duke of Wellington: AC/DC is my all time favourite band and that song is in my opinion their best. Still, I find Village People one best this far.
And when I started thinking what song could fit converting, The Monkees came to my mind immediatetly and I think that song worked out REALLY well. Propably my best lyrics this far.

Snake IV: I try to not to fail old Knud III:s legacy.

Garuda: This is just so fun that I cant keep my hands off writing this. :D
School started today though so it will naturally slow me down.

Hajji Giray I: I loved that one, too. The song choice was so good it took me only about 15 minutes to make those lyrics, though fine tuning took another 20 until it was truly ready.

Sing to the tune of "Take On Me" by a-ha

Marching away
I dont know where
I am to strike but I DOW anyway
Todays a-nother day to crush you
Home's away
Ill be coming for your land, ok

hmemulleheti.jpg


Give me land (give me land)
Land me give (give me land)
You'll be gone
In a day or two

suurivoitto.jpg


So needless to say
I have more in men
But thats you
crumbling away
Slowly learning that war aint ok
Say after me
"Its no better to be dead than sorry"

lembitakselipfalzissa.jpg


Give ad-vice (give ad-vice)
Ad-vice give (give ad-vice)
Youll go church
In a day or two

Oh the thing that you say
Is it sane or
Just a play my power away
You know all the things I got to remember
You're spying my life
I'll be keeping still you alive

Give ad-vice (give ad-vice)
Ad-vice give (give ad-vice)
Youll go church
In a day
Give ad-vice (give ad-vice)
Ad-vice give (give ad-vice)
Youll go church (give ad-vice)
In a day (ad-vice give)

Musical tyranny of questionable taste.

Reminds me of my early teenagerhood.

I laughed so hard. Please keep this up.

Sing to the tune of "Disco Inferno" by The Tramps

Burn king burn! Burn king burn! Burn king burn! Burn king burn!

saksa2.jpg


To mass revolt, yes! One hundred counties large.
Vassals getting pissed thei'r, getting rebel like the poor. Do you hear?
The dukes are screaming, out of control
It was so entertaining when the anger started to explode
I heard somebody say

saksakolme.jpg


Burn king burn! - Liege infernal
Burn king burn! - Burn that bugger down
Burn king burn! - Liege infernal
Burn king burn! - Burn that bugger down

Dissatisfaction came in the chain reaction
They cant get enough, till king has to self-depose
The rebeels, were usurping the crown, huh
Every duke's going strong
And that is when the revolt got hot
I heard somebody say

saksaloppu.jpg


Burn king burn! - Liege infernal
Burn king burn! - Burn that bugger down
Burn king burn! - Liege infernal
Burn king burn! - That bugger down

Up above my head I hear voices in the air (you are guilty)
That makes me know theres a trial somewhere

hermannitheduke.jpg


Dissatisfaction came in the chain reaction
I have had enough, so I had to self proclaim
New duke is there, rising to the top
Me the duke am going strong
That is when my crown gets hot
I heard somebody say

hermannitheduke2.jpg


Hail duke hail - Liege perfecto
Hail duke hail - Kiss his feet below
Hail duke hail - Liege perfecto
Hail duke hail - Kiss his feet below
Hail duke hail
Hail duke hail - Kiss his feet below
Hail duke hail - Liege perfecto
Hail duke hail - Kiss his feet below

Now that song is considerably harder to follow but try to keep up with it, after you listen once you know all those tricks singer does to make your job harder. I propably should have chosen easier song to follow but I think that one is too perfect for subject and it would be crime not to use it.

Duke of Wellington: I didnt get any land in that war, I barely kept my own land myself. What I did was a little "cheat". King of Germany was excommunicated (it also most likely triggered that nasty civil war seen in previous update) so his titles were really cheap to grab so I grabbed few of them and made peace with him by giving those very same claims away. And I found that song to be the worst this one, only one I havent been satisfied yet. The song "Funkytown" I used is really catchy, though

phargle: That is a lot coming from the Grand Knud. I appreciate it but I myself didnt find that update too good, like I said, it is only one I havent been satisfied with yet.

RGB: Thank you. I am myself still a teenager so it is very possible you can recognize some teenager angst in lyrics.

Llywelyn: I was between it, "give land me" and "me give land" so I ended up with it. The original lyrics change the order of words (Take on me ---> take me on) so I did too. But I am glad you still liked it.

Great updates! I particularly liked the Take On-Me one. If only a cartoon music video of marauding crusader kings springing to life could accompany it..

Sing to the tune of "Whiskey In The Jar" by Thin Lizzy

kainuuhyokkii.jpg


As I was going to Tavast and large Finnish forests
I saw Kainuu courier and his paper he was holding
I first reduced my anger and then reduced my rage
I said "Come here and deliver or the devil, he may take ya"

armiesonthemarchow.jpg


Musha ring dum a doo dum a da
Mobilize my troops, ho
Mobilize my troops, ho
Theres armies on the march ow

udetalueet.jpg


I took all of his territory and it was pretty looking
I took all of his territory and gave it away to fellas
They swore that they serve me, never would they rebel me
But the devil curse Finns ally for you know he tricked me easy

viipurially.jpg


Musha ring dum a doo dum a da
Mobilize my troops, ho
Mobilize my troops, ho
Theres armies on the march ow

Now some men do charging and some men do flanking
And some men like to hear, arrowrains falling

Now here I am in battle, here I am with a cut and pain yeah
