    The Elven Maid

    Once there was an elven maid
    Whose many suitors were dismayed,
    For she was cool and coy and staid,
    And who might win the elven maid?

    There came a lord of high renown,
    With hawk and hound and velvet gown,
    On bended knee his suit he prayed:
    He could not win the elven maid.

    Then came a wizard of great power,
    The master of a magic tower,
    But by his spells she was not swayed:
    He could not win the elven maid.

    And came a bard, so debonair,
    His garb was rich, his speech was fair,
    He sweetly sang and deftly played,
    But he could not win the elven maid.

    Then came an elf archer, bold and true,
    With hair of gold and eyes bright blue;
    A red red rose at her feet he laid
    To speak his love for the elven maid.

    And so my simple song is done,
    For thus the elven maid was won,
    And now through wood and glade they ride:
    The elven archer and his bride.

        Hunting Goblins

        I know where lots of goblins bide,
        It's a cave, but they often stand outside,
        Cause they haven't got the sense to hide,
        When I'm hunting goblins!

        Some of the goblins stand and fight,
        Some of them take to their heels in flight;
        You can tell where I am by their squeals of fright,
        When I'm hunting goblins!

        I often cast a sleepy spell,
        Then cut their throats wherever they fell,
        From the Land of Nod they go straight to Hell,
        When I'm hunting goblins!

        I like to tidy the bodies away,
        Some aren't dead, or so they say,
        But I always bury them anyway,
        When I'm hunting goblins!

        So here's a tip for everyone,
        My pastime must be best bar none,
        Cause I always have such a lot of fun,
        When I go hunting goblins!

              Lost Smyorga

              Here's a song about lost Smyorga
              That sank beneath the sea,
              Where we went to trade for coral and pearls,
              And a girl took a shine to me.

              It was my first long voyage
              (I was just a deck-hand then)
              And she was a tavern serving girl.
              But still rather shy of men.

              Well while my shipmates roared and sang
              And drank the tavern dry,
              I sat quiet in a corner,
              And somehow I caught her eye.

              So one thing led to another
              (I suppose it's an old old tale):
              I spent all my time ashore with her,
              'Til it was time to sail.

              I'd signed on for the voyage and back,
              So I had to leave, you see,
              But I said that I'd be back for her,
              And she said she'd wait for me.

              Now the wizards of Smyorga
              Were powerful and bold,
              But they upset the gods of the sea,
              Or so the story's told.

              So one dark night the sea rose up
              And overwhelmed the town
              And the power and pride of Smyorga
              Beneath the waves sank down.

              And when I got back to Smyorga
              There was nothing but rocks and sand
              Where once was a mighty city
              And fertile farming land.

              But I still dream of Smyorga
              As Smyorga used to be
              And a girl I fell in love with
              Who said she'd wait for me .....

                  The Flower at the Window

                  There was a maiden, young and comely,
                  Who kept a bedroom window box,
                  Which she weeded and she watered,
                  As a shepherd tends his flocks.

                  One day as she was gardening
                  A handsome knight came strolling by,
                  And he looked up at the window,
                  And he caught the maiden's eye.

                  So he went to see her father,
                  But he got no joy at all,
                  For her father didn't like him,
                  Bade him never more to call.

                  Her father didn't want her
                  Wed to any passing knight,
                  So he locked her in her bedroom,
                  Left her sobbing at her plight.

                  But our hero was resourceful
                  And he knew just what to do,
                  And he went and got a ladder
                  From a nearby building crew.

                  He took the borrowed ladder,
                  When the night was dark and still,
                  Pushed the ladder up to the wndow,
                  Then climbed up to the sill.

                  But the lovers never married,
                  Though their was oh so fine,
                  Cause the flower at the window
                  Was a hungry vampire vine.

                  And the moral of this story
                  Is that love will find a way,
                  But if vampires are involved then
                  It's best to find a way by day!

                        A Barbarian Lullaby

                        Hush little baby, 'tis time you were sleeping,
                        Don't be upset by your sisters' loud weeping;
                        On you falls the duty to right a great wrong,
                        And if you're to take vengeance, you must sleep and grow strong.

                        Your father, who made you your favourite rattle,
                        Will not be returning from yesterday's battle;
                        Tonight I'll be singing his funeral song,
                        But if you're to take vengeance, you must sleep and grow strong.

                        Your uncles will help you, when you are older,
                        To learn all the skills and the ways of a soldier,
                        But before you can join in the warrior throng
                        And go to take vengeance, you must sleep and grow strong.

                        You've a duty upon you as your father's one son
                        To see that the blood toll one day is won;
                        The way may be hard, and the journey be long,
                        So if you're to take vengeance, you must sleep and grow strong.

                          The Life of a Bard

                          The life of a bard
                          Doesn't have to be hard,
                          With all of the skills he can use:
                          There's thieving, and fighting,
                          And (a bit less exciting)
                          Exercising his poetic muse.

                          So he's many a chance
                          His career to advance,
                          If you think it is tough you are wrong:
                          For who else can win fame,
                          And coin to their name,
                          Just by singing or playing a song?

                            The Dance of Love

                            The dance of love has many a tune,
                            Some last for ever, some end too soon;
                            Which tune they'll dance to, none may choose,
                            Once they put on their dancing shoes.

                            Some think a long slow tune is best,
                            Some prefer a tune with zest;
                            Since you must dance the whole dance through
                            Be glad if the tune is right for you.

                            Some tunes bring sorrow, some bring joy,
                            Some falter in the playing,
                            But which of the tunes will play for you
                            There is no way of saying:

                            You can only hope you'll enjoy the dance,
                            And that it's not heart-rending,
                            So bow to your partner and take the chance
                            That there'll be a happy ending.
