    Last night we had a scary Scream Dragon night (it was Friday the 13th!), so I made a special spooky tune for the evening!

    Scream Dragon Night


    It's close to midnight
    Something scary is lurking in the dark
    Under the moonlight
    You hear a sound that almost stops your heart
    The bagpipes howl
    A furry beast is playing them in long blows
    You start to freeze
    As you stare into the purple snowbeast’s eyes
    You're paralyzed

    It’s Scream Dragon Night
    And no one’s gonna save you
    From the beasts about to strike
    It’s Scream Dragon Night
    You’re fighting for your life
    Through the scary Scream Dragon Night

    Down in the corner
    The biscuit crumbler eyes you hungrily
    It makes you shiver
    The thought of loosing all yer biscuits woefully
    You order wine
    That looks like blood – probably it’s bovine
    Yer try sit down
    But the chair walks away before yer eyes
    You realise:

    It’s Scream Dragon Night
    And no one’s gonna save you
    From the beasts about to strike
    It’s Scream Dragon Night
    You’re fighting for your life
    Through the scary Scream Dragon Night

    Tonight’s the night
    When all freaks gather at their favorite inn
    They are all here
    Even the one with a head like a pumpkin
    The music starts
    But all yer hear is the sound of cracking bones
    Dance with the ghosts
    But beware yer step and don’t cross the rug
    It might eat yer up!

    It’s Scream Dragon Night
    And no one’s gonna save you
    From the beasts about to strike
    It’s Scream Dragon Night
    You’re fighting for your life
    Through the scary, freaky, horrid Scream Dragon Night

    It’s Scream Dragon Night
    And no one’s gonna save you
    From the beasts about to strike
    It’s Scream Dragon Night
    You’re fighting for your life
    Through the scary Scream Dragon Night

    OOC: This one is an adaptation of a famous scary tune by the King of Pop, as you might have figured out.I only used some parts of it, making it a bit shorter to perform.

    Grand Order Anniversary Song

    Uh-oh, gossip of a troubled time
    Right here, here in Songburrow
    They say, someone has performed a crime
    Right here, here in Songburrow
    They say, someone stole a pie with thyme
    Right here, here in Songburrow
    But now, I ran out of words that rhyme
    Right here, here in Songburrow

    Oinkers here, dishes there
    Hobbits swear, no no no
    Dancing bear, tea is near
    Hobbits cheer, go go go

    Come celebrate the past with us tonight
    With friends like yer our future will be bright, let's party
    The Order, will party, tonight
    The Order, will party, tonight

    We got, mathoms stored in sturdy chests
    Right here, here in Songburrow
    We got, George the mouse who loves to jest
    Right here, here in Songburrow
    We got, secret cellars east and west
    Right here, here in Songburrow
    We got, brandy kegs for all our guests,
    Right here, here in Songburrow

    Broken sty, orange dye
    Hobbits sigh, no no no
    Tools to buy, mushroom pie
    Hobbits cry, go go go

    Come celebrate the past with us tonight
    With friends like yer our future will be bright, let's party
    The Order, will party, tonight
    The Order, will party, tonight

    Right now, we will celebrate
    Right now, we will celebrate
    Right now, we will celebrate
    Right now, we will celebrate
    --
    Flower bed, ore-filled shed
    Hobbits dread, no no no
    New-baked bread, winter sled
    Hobbits said, go go go

    Come celebrate the past with us tonight
    With friends like yer our future will be bright, let's party
    The Order, will party, tonight
    The Order, will party, tonight

    Mathoms here, mathoms there,
    Everywhere, go go go
    Mathoms here, mathoms there,
    Everywhere, go go go

    In the starlit night

    # A little bird shivers in the cold
    # The frosty fog keeps him in its hold
    # When a chirping song makes him feel alright
    # Friends all around
    # in the starlit night

    # A long-lost sheep running through the field
    # No sign of home, now its fate is sealed
    # When a friendly bark comes from yonder height
    # Friends all around
    # in the starlit night

    # A little lass whimpers in her sleep
    # Her dreams are sad, darkness far too deep
    # When a warm embrace wakes her from the fright
    # Friends all around
    # in the starlit night

    # A gaffer rests thinking of his friends
    # They are all gone, all have met their ends
    # But their memories shine forever bright
    # Friends all around
    # in the starlit night

    # The times are hard, wintertime is cruel
    # But up ahead wait the days of yule
    # All across the Shire, songs and candlelight
    # Friends all around
    # in the starlit night
    # 'cross the Shire, songs and candlelight
    # Friends all around
    # in the starlit night

    # So join our song in the winter cool
    # We'll think of you in the days of yule
    # All across the Shire, songs and candlelight
    # Friends all around
    # in the starlit night

    OOC:

    Best sung to "When a Child is Born", preferably the Johnny Mathis version below, although the in-game version missed the middle interlude. This was first performed during the Winterhome Wassail with the Brandy Badgers on December 30, 2017.

    The Spring Rain Song

    It is spring in the Shire
    When all the hobbits wait to greet the sun
    It’s hiding there behind the drizzle
    Staying there ’til summer is gone
    So let’s raise mugs of ale together
    With songs of pork and mushroom pie
    We’re hobbits and we love that rainy sky

    It was late one Friday
    At the inn, staying apart
    Was a lad and lassie
    First she drank his porter, then she stole his heart
    Walking her home in the rainstorm
    Snuggling up close to keep dry
    We’re hobbits and we love that rainy sky

    And their love was blooming
    A home they made
    Filled with happy children
    They played in the nearby glade

    Four filthy kids
    So muddy with twigs and straw stuck deep in their hair
    They all ran for cover
    When their ma said bath-time is near
    But the rain kept pouring
    All their grime washed away from high
    We’re hobbits and we love that rainy sky

    And the rainy days
    They kept coming all through the year
    And always joy and happy laughs
    Puddle splashing made the children cheer

    When frost and darkness
    Made for a rime-coloured field
    All the children waiting
    For what grey cloudy skies would yield
    When the snow at last kept falling
    Building snowmen eating frosty pie
    We’re hobbits and we love that snowy sky
    We are hobbits and we love that snowy sky

    Best sung to "From Small Things" by Bruce Springsteen, I wrote this one for the Lone Bards OAKS on April 7. Here is a video of the whole concert and Springsteen's original too.

    A song for a stinky blue cheese! First performed at the Giggling Dragon Friday.

    Brockenborings Blue

    There’s a cheese old as time
    It makes you retch and spew
    No cheese has more sticky slime
    Than Brockenborings Blue

    Ew! Ew! Ew!
    Ew! Ew! Yuck!
    Ew! Ew-ew… ew!
    Ew, ew, ew…
    Ew! Ew! Ew!

    It stinks as far as Bree and Combe
    Tastes worse than Quick Post glue
    Destroys your taste and numbs your mouth
    That Brockenborings Blue

    If hungry hobbits knock your door
    And ask for tasty food
    You can just drive them all away
    With Brockenborings Blue


    OOC: These lyrics go quite well with some nasty blue cheese and this tune:
