About In the hall of the mountain king

It is a collage of instrument. It is a fantasy piece. It is a piece of B minor. The lyrics are kinda weird.Slay him! The Christian's son has bewitched

The Mountain King's fairest daughter!

Slay him!

Slay him!

May I hack him on the fingers?

May I tug him by the hair?

Hu, hey, let me bite him in the haunches!

Shall he be boiled into broth and bree to me

Shall he roast on a spit or be browned in a stewpan?

Ice to your blood, friends!

I learned what the lyrics are in In the hall of the mountain king. I enjoyed Playing one of my favorite classical pieces. I also learned what haunches mean. In this project I learned how to play some of the high notes in this song so I will know how to play it in the future.
