Lyrics

TROGDOR!
TROGDOR!
Trogdor was a man
I mean, he was a dragon man
Er, I mean, he was just a dragon
But he was still TROGDOR!
TROGDOR!

Burninating the countryside
Burninating the peasants
Burninating all the peoples
In the 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!

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 version 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).
    • The description given for the song in the game's menu reads
      The Trogdor song from
      the Strong Bad Email
      'dragon' was actually an
      afterthought that was
      added at the last minute.
      Mike was finishing up
      the cartoon and Matt
      suddenly started
      screaming the chorus
      while making eggs.
    • The loading screen for the song displays what is apparently advice on playing the song from Strong Bad:
      "For squeadlies, mash on the trembalo. For meadlies, tone 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.
