Dressed Up as Freyja

Dressed Up As Freyja, a retelling of Thrym’s Lay

For the Jimmy Buffett Rite at Trillium 2006, I created this parody (perhaps filk) for a Praise Offering. It went over quite well with the attendees. This is, more-or-less, the version that was sung; I have done slight variants as well

Dressed Up As Freyja Tune: Margaritaville (With Apologies to Jimmy Buffett)

Thrym had got Mjollnir Hammer of Aesir And he desired Freyja in trade Freyja said “No Way”, Heimdall then did say Dress Thor as Freyja, and Loki her maid

Chorus: Dressed up as Freyja, goin’ down to Jotunheim To retrieve the lost Hammer of Thor Thor did complain but he’s the giants’ true bane And he knows that Freyja’s no whore

Thrymr was awed By Thor-hunger broad But Loki told him they stopped not to eat Thrym lifted the veil And then he turned pale “How we rushed here” was Loki’s deceit

Chorus: Dressed up as Freyja, goin’ down to Jotunheim To retrieve the lost Hammer of Thor Thor did complain but he’s the giants’ true bane And I think that Thrym will be sore

To hallow the bride They brought out Thor’s pride They put his hammer right in his lap And Thrymr and guests all Slain were by that maul That thunderous weapon that helps us hang on

Chorus: Dressed up as Freyja, goin’ down to Jotunheim To retrieve the lost Hammer of Thor Thor did complain but he’s the giants’ true bane And I know that Thrym is no more Yes, and Thor did complain but he’s the giants’ true bane And I know that Thrym is no more.
