:brood: It's blocked cuz of copyright.Sorry. I've heard of others not being able to see it but they thought it was because they were in other countries. But you're in California, which I believe is still part of the United States.

Maybe they think California is a whole new world.

Well, it doesn't look like this thread on Disney songs has really taken off yet.

Perhaps some people would prefer to listen to part of the Epic of Gilgamesh sung in ancient Sumerian:

Notice the temporal clauses.

I was able to watch both.
The comments on the parody (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NX_MSrE9WtE), were especially funny! -- especially the chat with Maria Papadaki

The commenters say there are a lot of pronunciation errors...

Is this modern or ancient Greek...and would that make a difference in the pronunciation?

Yes, I see there are two full length articles about that, on the not-so-olde Wikipedia:
