House of the Rising Lannister

by Morrigan

A Game of Thrones parody of "House of the Rising Sun" by the Animals.

There is a place in Westeros
they call Casterly Rock.
They play "The Rains of Castamere"
whenever they kill a Stark.

Now the only one worth saving
is the man they call the Imp.
He may be small, and Lannister, too,
but he's better than you think.

He's spent the night in whorehouses,
he's drank more than you can drink.
The Imp is short, but Jon Snow knows
he can make the giants shrink.

[mandolin solo]

The little man from Casterly
has married Sansa Stark.
when he spoke against King Joffrey,
they threw him in the dark.

His dungeon is a foul place
filled with straw and rot.
A Lannister always pays his debts,
but Oberyn's all he's got.

Poor Tyrion the Lannister
the Imp from Casterly Rock
will never be seen alive again
and his name they'll ever mock.

Hi, magpie. This is Pinkie here for a review. I like to be a reviewer if you don't mind.

I like the parody of this song. It is very beautiful and well-written. I sang it along with my little sister, and we like it. Even through I am not a fan of Game of Throne, I like the song. You are very talented songwriter. I hope you write more. Have a nice day.

Awesome Job! :D

This is brilliant :D
Are you sure we can't all actually play/sing/record this? :')

I think this could be a start of a collection :)
I demand one for each house!
And especially would love to see a white walker themed one!

My only nitpick is the last stanza, [SPOILER ALERT] as he is seen alive again ;)
just not by the people of kings landing ;)

Ah well, I haven't read the books. So it is what it is.

Hey Mags!

This is pretty good, I like it.

This, however, I really, really approve!
