Video Hits Saturday: Ankh-Morpork Anthem


Did you know that the city of Ankh-Morpork has an official anthem? Since no one ever remembers the second verse anyway, they solved the problem by making it offiicaly, "Ner Ner Ner hner"

"When dragons belch and hippos flee
My thoughts, Ankh-Morpork, are of thee
Let others boast of martial dash
For we have boldly fought with cash
We own all your helmets, we own all your shoes
We own all your generals - touch us and you'll lose.

Morporkia! Morporkia!
Morporkia owns the day!
We can rule you wholesale
Touch us and you'll pay.

We bankrupt all invaders, we sell them souvenirs
We ner ner ner ner ner, hner ner hner by the ears
Er hner we ner ner ner ner ner
Ner ner her ner ner ner hner the ner
Er ner ner hner ner, nher hner ner ner (etc.)
Ner hner ner, your gleaming swords
We mortgaged to the hilt
Morporkia! Morporkia!
Hner ner ner ner ner ner
We can rule you wholesale


Credit where it's due."

  1. No matter how good I get as a comic fantasy writer, I suspect nothing I come up with will ever match Ankh-Morpork.
