Because we can’t be serious all the time

All About Them Greeks

(in the style of “All About That Bass” by Meghan Trainor)

Khoros:
Because you know I’m all about them Greeks
‘Bout them Greeks, no Romans
I’m all about them Greeks, ‘bout them Greeks, no Romans
I’m all about them Greeks, ‘bout them Greeks, no Romans
I’m all about them Greeks, ‘bout them Greeks

Yeah, it’s pretty clear, I ain’t Imperial.
I’m plainly Spartan in all ways criterial.
Hike up my chiton and run a foot race,
All the right wool in all the right places.

From clothes to art to gods even our alphabet,
You copied all our shit, come on now admit it.
You took our Aphrodite, called her Venus,
But every inch of her is Grecian from the sandals to the bust.

Yeah my momma she told me don’t worry about your thigh.
She says your peplos does not need to close along the side.
You know we run our estates, leave the weaving to the helots,
So if that’s what you’re into then e tan e epi tas.

I’m bringing Spartan back.
Go ahead and tell them Roman matrons that.
Gorgo, first female cryptanalyst —
I’m here to tell you
Every inch of her was Grecian from the sandals to the bust.

Yeah my momma she told me don’t worry about your thigh.
She says your peplos does not need to close along the side.
You know we run our estates, leave the weaving to the helots,
So if that’s what you’re into then e tan e epi tas.
