Ai-yi-yi-yi Xena

(to the tune of the Kinks' "Lola")

by Purple Pen


I met her at a brawl down Potedia way
Where the girls stay home and I was engaged
To young Perdicus.  Purty-purty-nerdy Perdicus...
I was being kidnapped so I punched out a guy
She came to my aid with a mighty war cry
Oh, my Xena.
X-E-N-A Xena,
Ai-yi-yi-yi Xena...

Well, I'm not the world's most physical chick,
But I'd never seen legs with quite so much kick
As on Xena. Ai-yi-yi-yi Xena...
And I'm not dumb but I was mystified
To see her fly 'round that pole and vault high in the sky
Oh, my Xena
Ai-yi-yi-yi Xena,
Airborne, tumbling Xena...

Well, I didn't understand but still I did know
That I'd follow her wherever she'd go
And then one night, when I met her eyes,
I felt like lightning had cracked open the sky...

Well, I'm not the world's most passionate bard,
But though I stayed off of Argo, I still fell real hard
For my Xena.
Ai-yi-yi-yi Xena,
Lovely leather-clad Xena...

Raven haired, piercing stared Xena,
Evil scarred, trying hard Xena...

She pushed me away
Said "I can't let you care."
I told her I dared
I got down on my knees,
And I looked at her and she at me...

And that's the way that I want it to stay
And I always want it to be that way
With my Xena. Ai-yi-yi-yi Xena...
Boys will love boys and girls will love girls
Doesn't matter what kind, we need more love in the world
Just ask Xena. My-my-my-my Xena...

Well, I was still a simple country girl at the core
And I'd never ever kissed a woman before.
But Xena smiled, took me by the hand,
Said "Little bard, why do you need a man?"

Well, I can't do a flip without getting a sprain.
But I've learned other skills, and she never complains...
Not my Xena. Ai-yi-yi-yi Xena,
Never flinching, blood-flow pinching Xena...

Xena. Ai-yi-yi-yi Xena,
My-my-my-my Xena...
(repeat and fade)
