Mythic the Musical - Mount Olympus / Rebellious Children Lyrics


GODS:
Mount Olympus
Mount Olympus
Home of Zeus
Lord of light
Mount Olympus
Mount Olympus
Swanky and chic
And security is tight

Mount Olympus
Sacred ground

ZEUS:
We got more dysfunction here
Than anywhere around

(spoken)
Listen, I can't have Athena's approval rating get higher than mine!
I'm tellin' ya man, these kids?
The screwing around wasn't worth having all
Of these overachieving little shits!

(sung)
I saw my old man as an obstacle
He treated my grandpa the same
And here I am now with like forty kids
And it feels like a waiting game
They'll never take me down
They are plotting in vain
They'll never shake me down
These full-grown kids
Are a full-blown pain

Rebellious children
Have cursed my family tree
I've got to manage them well
So they don't rebel on me

APHRODITE: (spoken)
Daddy!

ZEUS: (spoken)
Pumpkin! What're you doing in my office?

APHRODITE: (spoken)
Just visiting the most important man in my life!

ZEUS:
This kid is fine cause she ain't a threat
She's really a bit of a flake

APHRODITE: (spoken)
Is that a new statue of yourself?

ZEUS:
She don't have the skills to be powerful

APHRODITE: (spoken)
Check out my outfit!

ZEUS:
Or make plans like the others make

APHRODITE: (spoken)
Can we talk for a second?

ZEUS:
She'll never take me down
Like the rest of my brood

APHRODITE: (spoken)
I have a little problem...

ZEUS:
Those brats'll shake me down
These full-grown kids
Got me full-blown screwed

APHRODITE: (spoken)
Daddy, are you listening?

ZEUS:
Rebellious children
Have cursed my family tree
I've got to manage them well
So they don't rebel on me

APHRODITE: (spoken) Daddy!

ZEUS: (spoken) WHAT?! What?

APHRODITE:
Daddy I messed up
And I messed up bad
At least I dressed up
So please don't be mad
It's time I fessed up
I ruined Demeter's kid

ZEUS: (spoken)
Again, with Persephone...

APHRODITE:
See, Hades dragged her to his lair

ZEUS: (spoken) What?

APHRODITE:
He was cursed by Aphrodite love
Demeter doesn't know she's there
Oh daddy, help me please

ZEUS: (spoken)
Wait, you were able to manipulate Hades?
That is badass, Pumpkin! I mean, that's just as powerful as...

(sung)
Shit, this kid could be the end of me
Who knew that she had what it takes
She's gotta be thrown in the lion's den
This is war, gotta raise the stakes

(spoken)
I'll tell you what, Pookers.
You go to Demeter, tell her exactly what happened.
She'll be so relieved! I mean,
It's not like she'd be so livid she'd destroy you with the wrath of a thousand suns

APHRODITE: (spoken)
Okay daddy, I'll do it and I promise you'll be so proud of me when I come back!

ZEUS: (spoken)
You won't be back

(sung)
Rebellious children
My curse, my destiny
I've got to manage them well
So they don't rebel, oh!
Rebellious children
Come by it, honestly
I've gotta knock 'em about
So they don't turn out like me
