We Ice Warriors Three

Author: Doug MacKenzie,Lakeshore Light Opera, Montreal, Quebec, Canada

INTRO:
From the distant frozen prairie
come the goons of Donald Cherry.
They played hockey violently,
were suspended, consequently.
Goons of Cherry, hail! Oh, hail!

ARAC:
We ice warriors three,
like our body checks.
Like most jocks are we,
masculine in sex!
ALL THREE:
Yes! Yes! Yes!
Masculine in sex!

GURON:
Strategy we bar,
we are somewhat bent.
On the whole we are
not intelligent!
ALL THREE:
No! No! No!
Not intelligent!

SCYNTHIUS (SCYNTHIA):
But with booted blade
we can crush and maim.
You should be afraid!
Hockey is our game!
ALL THREE:
Yes! Yes! Yes!
Hockey is our game!

ALL THREE:
Bold and fierce and strong, ha, ha!
That’s the way we play!
Up and down the ice, ha, ha!
Don’t get in our way!
We will drop our gloves and fight!
Watch us with dismay!
We are not too bright, ha, ha!
Hockey is our game! Yes! Yes! Yes! Hockey is our game! Ha! Ha!

From the author:

Dear Sirs,
I wrote this parody of Arac’s song from Princess Ida for our annual Halloween party and involved three rather large guys dressed as battered and bruised hockey players (at the last minute, Scynthius had to cancel and was replaced by his girlfriend who became, with a slight costume modification, Scynthia). The concept, if not the execution, won first prize. The intro was performed by various friends.
