about

This was the round 3 challenge for SpinTunes #4. We had to write a song in which all the lyrics began with a choice of seven letters. The letters we chose spell "Carnival" and the inspiration was a trip to the carnival in Venice where we spotted the pink-garbed Viking who captured our imagination.

lyrics

Careering around in a vaporetto,
A vague inner longing,
All restrained inside.
Lived in a land called Asgard,
Looting and violating, no regrets.

"All I need is a life in rosé
As camp as I am, any way
Leaving all normal affectations aside..."

"I can admit it,
I ache endlessly,
All restrained inside:
Valhalla Rosé.
I need no-one's approval,
Living another life,
Like a camp volcano:
Valhalla Rosé"

Insulting ladies and contessas
Love's next victim
Like a rose
Navigates a love canal
Captivating Italians and
Anorexic Valkyries

"I can admit it,
I ache endlessly,
All restrained inside:
Valhalla Rosé.
I need no-one's approval,
Living another life,
Like a camp volcano:
Valhalla Rosé"

Valhallalalalaaa
Valhallalalalaaa
Valhallalalalaaa
