Heedeth the gorgon known for their captivating beauty and allure. This is the legend of the most infamous mermaid in history: Thessalonike.

lyrics

Gather ’round and I shall school ye
On the legend of Thessalonike
Half sister of The Great
Alexander of Macedon

One day she received news
Of Alexander’s death from
The palace of Nebuchadnezzar
A ferocious fever cut him
Down in Babylon

Seized by grief
She leaped into the sea
To quench her anguish and sorrow
But rose from the Aegean
A mermaid
A gorgon

Pyrates and hardy mates
All mariners are prey
To the reign of Thessalonike
The Sea Queen
’Cause Salty dogs
And seafarer logs
All tell the same story
Black fate escaped
By affirmations of
Alexander’s glory

Now she rides on ebon tides
Chasing ships across
The seas and oceans
A deadly question she poses
To those she lays hold
Is Alexander, The King, alive?

To appease Thessalonike
Speak these words
He lives and He reigns
And He conquers the world!

Pyrates and hardy mates
All mariners are prey
To the reign of Thessalonike
The Sea Queen
’Cause Salty dogs
And seafarer logs
All tell the same story
Black fate escaped
By affirmations of
Alexander’s glory
Pyrates and hardy mates
All mariners are prey
To the reign of Thessalonike
The Sea Queen
’Cause Salty dogs
And seafarer logs
All tell the same story
Black fate escaped
By affirmations of
Alexander’s glory
Of Alexander’s glory
