Broken Promise

This was one of my entries for the Yet Another Fantasy Gamer Comic 2009 bardic competition. It’s all about Fang, the kobold captain who’s just a few (dozen) apples short of a fruit salad, if you get my meaning. However, because he has an almost uncanny ability to do the right thing at the right time — completely by accident — he’s known the world over as a strategic genius. At least by people who don’t know him. People who do know him realize that he’s completely off his rocker. Anyway, Captain Fang’s first ship was The Broken Promise, hence the name of this song.

To hear 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. Enjoy!

Broken Promise
by Julie Golick, aka “The Pocket Bard”
To the tune of “Zoot Suit Riot” by the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies
April 2009

What’s that ship sailin’ all askew?
Genius captain and a wanted crew
Masts unfurled and banners fly
Captain Kobold? He’s your guy!

Never know what’s next
When the captain comes to town
Make all of your plans
Still he’s gonna bring you down

Broken Promise
Ride like the wind out of here
Broken Promise
Got a cannon and he feels no fear

Broken Promise
Ride like the wind out of here
Broken Promise
Got a cannon and he feels no fear
Go Fang!

Walks through the battle without a scratch
Faced Crown Tourney to the final match
Change your course and change your tack
Fang approaches clad in black!

See him come your way
And you want him in a cell
Better keep your wits
‘Cause he’s gonna bring you hell

Broken Promise
Ride like the wind out of here
Broken Promise
Got a cannon and he feels no fear

It’s the Broken Promise!
It’s the Broken Promise!
It’s the Broken Promise!

(scatting)

Oh, you see him come your way
And you want him in a cell
Better keep your wits
‘Cause he’s gonna bring you hell

Broken Promise
Ride like the wind out of here
Broken Promise
Got a cannon and he feels no fear

Broken Promise
Ride like the wind out of here
Broken Promise
Got a cannon and he feels no fear

It’s the Broken Promise!
It’s the Broken Promise!
It’s the Broken Promise!

Think I’m about ready to scream.
