The Old Man

"The Old Man", known in Stenza as Dûṇⱱěḍo̞ṇ, is a piece of music originating in White Christmas, which has become incredibly popular as a parodic War Song, especially aboard ships.


"The Old Man" and all of its iterations are commonly sung for entertainment on down time by ship's technicians and other hands aboard a vessel, but can be used to make fun of an enemy captain or general.

Historical Details


When White Christmas was brought across the stars to Mudewei (under astoundingly mysterious circumstances), many of the songs featured in the film filtered into Stenza folk music. These include "Gee, I Wish I Was Back In The Army" and "The Old Man", and immediately the process of altering the lyrics to suit various purposes began.

Public Reaction

"The Old Man" has become incredibly popular among the Stenza, especially in informal situations.
