Vanatru Parody (ABBA)

Happy New Year folks!

I want to start the year fresh, with a bit of humor. I hope you like filk, and ABBA!

[Finally Facing I’m] Vanatru
(Or “An Example of a Vanic Conspiracy”)

Lyrics by me, without apologies to ABBA, since the original “Waterloo” was just as bad!

One day… some Old Man scolded me to pay attention
And then… I tried to talk to faeries but they just sent me away
Those Pagan books on the shelves
They’re not all just about elves!

Vanatru! Drowning in signs that I can’t ignore
Vanatru! Lady of Love standing at my door
Vanatru! Couldn’t escape if I wanted to
Vanatru! Finding my calling in serving You
Whoah-whoah-uh-oh Vanatru! Finally facing I’m Vanatru!

So now… I’ve tried to find some gods who were obscurer
But wow… it turns out, though the Vanir are quite popular, that most of Them are lost
So how could I not burrow in?
When I find a reference, I win!

Vanatru! Wish there was more of Them in the Lore
Vanatru! Searching for history to explore
Vanatru! Couldn’t escape if I wanted to
Vanatru! Knowing my calling is serving You
Whoah-whoah-uh-oh Vanatru! Finally facing I’m Vanatru!

Good Lord!… it seems Veraldrgodh finds me attractive
I’m floored! This consort thing is more than I had bargained for, but seems like quite a trip
And how could I ever deny
That Alflord is one sexy guy!

Vanatru! Claimed by a god on a golden boar
Vanatru! Can’t help but love You for ever more
Vanatru! Couldn’t escape if I wanted to
Vanatru! Knowing my calling is loving You
Whoah-whoah-uh-oh Vanatru! Finally facing I’m Vanatru!

P.S. I wrote this a couple years ago, but I was inspired to post it here because I was just watching Mama Mia for the first time. Ohhhhh dear. ;p
