It’s a backstory song. Griffons go back to pre-Hellenic times, but where did they come from? Well, since it’s a lion on the ass end and an eagle on the front end (with tufty lion ears) , but has four feet (claws front, paws back) obviously there’s some seeeerious miscegenation goin’ on. A lion and an eagle did the wild thang, but why? How? and what happened to the baby? And what did the parents say? (Hint. Lions okay with it “My family can never be too big!” “Huh, never figured I’d have flying grandbabies! Kewl!” Eagles, not so much, which considering teen pregnancy eagle mom popped one bigass egg, is no surprise. “It looks like prey. Gonna eat it.” “Throw it out of the nest and let the carrion crows have it!” “Mom! Dad! As soon as she’s fledged the lions will take her in, so just leave her alone!”)
Also, and I have no idea WHY, but I’m working on yet another tune about Lady Godiva.
