Baron, Oh Baron

This was one of three songs I wrote for the Yet Another Fantasy Gamer Comic bardic competition in 2009. It covers a large swath of the comic. The first two verses about the siege of Elwood cover approximately comics 666-685. The next two verses, about the ship, are comics 689-693 and 708-712. The next three verses, about the fight beneath the Black Mountain, are approximately comics 737-748. And finally, the part about Kila and Lloth is around comics 787-789. Enjoy!

To hear a version of me singing this song, you can click on this link, which is graciously hosted by Yet Another Fantasy Gamer Comic. Hopefully their webmaster doesn’t mind that I’m linking directly to them.

Baron, Oh Baron
by Julie Golick, “The Pocket Bard”
to the tune of “Captain, Oh Captain” by Heather Jones
April 2009

Baron, oh Baron, there’s trouble, it’s true
There’s no rest in Elwood, our safety is through
An army of goblins besieges the town
They’re under the power of King Lewstrom’s crown
 
Summon your courage, and be of good cheer
Though Elwood’s surrounded, our course is still clear
There’s always a method, escape to be had
‘Cause leading the goblins is Razortooth’s dad
 
Baron, oh Baron, there’s trouble, it’s true
We need to find Clover to take down King Lew
We’ve chartered a vessel, but broke the main mast
We’ll never escape from the waters so vast
 
Summon your courage, and be of good cheer
We don’t need the main mast, a plan will appear
We’ll summon a serpent, a beast of the sea
And harness its power to reach Drostardy
 
Baron, oh Baron, there’s trouble, it’s true
Below the Black Mountain, there’s fighting anew
The dead have arisen, they march on us now
And Bloodhand is massing the orcs and the Drow
 
Summon your courage, and be of good cheer
We’ll never surrender, though death may be near
We’ll hold back the zombies with every last swing
Till Clover can save us and take Lewie’s ring
 
Baron, oh Baron, there’s trouble, it’s true
Our heroes lie dying, what more can we do?
 
Fill up your tankards, for Kila is dead
Lolth has arisen and bit off her head
