Lovely Protogonos

(To the tune of “O Come, All Ye Faithful”, except it’s for the Boeotian calendar new year —and cos I’m a sucker for kitsch who can’t bring himself to throw out his X-mas CDs, especially Projekt’s Excelsis comps. PS: Haven’t forgotten this year’s calendar, but I figure it’s not my place to bore you with my own personal dramas.)

O come, all Boeotians,
Joyful and triumphant!
O come ye, O come ye to Thespiai;
Come and behold him
Born the Son of Dark Nyx:

Chorus:
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Eh-er-oh-os.

Sing, choirs of Mousai,
Sing in exultation,
Sing, all ye citizens of Olympos!
Glory, O Theoi
Above and below:

Eros, we greet thee,
Born of Nyx dark womb;
Eros, to thee be glory given!
Deathless and ancient,
Lovely Protogonos!
