Lyrics

TROGDOR!
TROGDOR!
Trogdor was a man!
I mean, he was a dragon-man,
Or maybe he was just a dragon...
But he was still TROGDOR!
TROGDOR!

Burninating the countryside,
Burninating the peasants,
Burninating all the peoples,
And their thatched-roof COTTAGES!
THATCHED-ROOF COTTAGES!

{guitar solo starts up}

{spoken}
Whoa! Listen to those wicked dueling guitar solos! It's like Squeedly vs. Meedly over here. Go squeedly! Go squeedly! SQUEEDLY WINS!

When all the land is in ruin,
And burnination has forsaken the countryside,
Only one guy will remain,
My money's on...

{singing}
TROGDOR!
TROGDOR!

{spoken}
And the Trogdor comes in the NIIIIIGHT!

Limozeen's Version

Trogdor! Nana na nananana!
Trogdor! Nana na nananana!

Trogdor was a man!
He was a dragon, dragon, man
Or maybe he...
Was just a dragon!
But he was still Trogdor! Nana na nananana!
Trogdor! Nana na nananana!

Burninating the countryside
Burninating the peasants
And burninating all the people,
In the thatch-roofed cottages!
Trogdor!
Trogdor! Nana na nananana!
Trogdor!
Trogdor! Nana na nananana!

{Mike Chapman walks onstage and hands Larry a piece of paper}

{spoken} All right, everybody, stop.
Cut the chorus.
Sorry everybody.
We just recieved a letter from the Brothers Chaps.
They told us never, ever to play that song like that ever again
I guess we'll just do it "the regular way".

TROGDOR!
TROGDOR!

{sung in the style of Strong Bad} Trogdor was a man!
I mean, he was a dragon-man,
Or maybe he was just a dragon...
But he was still

{sung in the style of Larry} TROGDOR!
TROGDOR!

{sung in the style of Strong Bad} Burninating the countryside,
Burninating the peasants,
Burninating all the peoples,
{sung in the style of Larry} And their thatched-roof COTTAGES!
THATCHED-ROOF COTTAGES!

{guitar solos from Gary and Harry start up}

{spoken in the style of Strong Bad}
Whoa! Listen to those wicked dueling guitar solos! It's like Squeedly vs. Meedly over here. Go squeedly! Go squeedly! SQUEEDLY WINS!

When all the land is in ruin,
And burnination has forsaken the countryside,
Only one guy will remain,
My money's on...

{singing in the style of Larry}
TROGDOR!
TROGDOR!

{spoken}
And the Trogdor comes in the...
AUDIENCE: NIGHT!
In the ni-i-i-ight, in the night!

Trivia

Trogdor in Guitar Hero II
In-Game Screenshot of Trogdor from Guitar Hero II, crediting the song to Strong Bad
  • The "meedly" in the wicked dueling guitar solos is a reference to Strong Bad Email #36 guitar.
  • The Brothers Chaps use this remixed version (without the additional lyrics) in Happy Trogday.
  • The song is an unlockable bonus track in the game Guitar Hero II for PlayStation 2 and Xbox 360 (see the screenshot at the right and the demonstration video on YouTube). It has become popular to use this song to compare players' scores against one another's.
    • The loading screen says, "For squeedlies, mash on the trembolo. For meedlies, tune up on your chord surpassers. Oh, and I'm awesome."
  • The song is partially in an unusual time signature, 9/4 time. This could also be interpreted as one measure of 4/4 time followed by one measure of 5/4 time. Additionally, there is a single 3/4 interruption immediately before Strong Bad begins screaming "thatched-roof cottages."
