Against the Giants

A Rousing Tune

Needs more cowbell

While writing up my notes of our last battle, I felt inspired to compose the following ballad. Instrumentation may be a problem, but I feel a suitably tuned lute may work as long as there is enough cowbell.

Fear Ye Not The Roper

4/4 Time for Lute and Cowbell

(LOTS of Cowbell)

Verse 1:

Down the mines we have come

Here, but now there, gone

Stone Giants don’t fear the roper

Nor do the ogres, bugbears or orcs

(we can be like they are)

Chorus:

Come on fellows

(Fear Ye Not the Roper)

fellows take a stand

(Fear Ye Not the Roper)

We’ll be able to fight

(Fear Ye Not the Roper)

fight as we planned

La, la, la, la ,la

La, la, la, la ,la

Verse 2:

Violent times, they’re done

Here but now he’s gone

Staycee and Varg

Are together in eternity

(Staycee and Varg)

400 orcs and giants every day

(like Staycee and Varg)

400 orcs and giants every day

(redefining slaughter)

another 400 coming every day
(We can be like they are)

Chorus

Come on fellows

(Fear Ye Not the Roper)

fellows take a stand

(Fear Ye Not the Roper)

We’ll be able to fight

(Fear Ye Not the Roper)

fight as we planned

La, la, la, la ,la

La, la, la, la ,la

Lute Solo.

Verse 3:

Fight or two was won,

Here but now they’re gone

Came the last fight of madness

and it was clear we had to forge on

then the war was open and fight mind appeared

Whenever he’s hit he disappeared

the tentacles flew and then he appeared

(Saying, “Don’t be afraid”)

Come of fellows

(and we had no fear)

we made a stand

(and were able to fight)

They moved backward and waved their minions goodbye

(they had become like slaughtered)

fight as we planned

(they had become like slaughtered)
Come on Fellows

(Fear Ye Not the Roper)

un-named bard.

Comments

To which contemporary song should this be sung? I think I might have to insist on a rendition by the entire group :)
