The Rubber Duckies of Dione Sidhe

While I was sitting around the Dione Sidhe camp at Pennsic, I noticed that wherever I looked, there were little rubber duckies. Curious sort that I am, I asked my friends in the camp, “What’s up with all the duckies?” They told me that one year, one of the heads of camp had bought a package of rubber duckies at a dollar store and slipped a new one into the shower every day without telling anyone who had done it. The next year, the practice spread, and now there are dozens and dozens of rubber duckies all over camp. Of course, this deserved a song.

The Rubber Duckies of Dione Sidhe
by Katherine Ashewode, “The Pocket Bard”
Pennsic 38 (2009)
to the tune of “Cruiscin Lan”

Now listen well to me
If you go to Dione Sidhe
You’ll find a flock of fowl quite bizarre
They’re yellow and they’re small
And they grace the shower wall
If you listen, you can hear them quack, quack, quack
Listen you can hear them quack.

Chorus:
Oh, find a rubber ducky
If you’re feeling lucky
All the rubber ducks go quack, quack, quack
All the rubber ducks go quack

It started off with one
Then another joined the fun
Then three and four and five and then some more
Some ducklings in a row
With their mommy duck in tow
All the rubber ducks go quack, quack, quack
All the rubber ducks go quack

Chorus

They’re swimming in the sink
When you want to take a drink
And some are sitting in your favourite chair
They’re hiding with your thread
And they’re sleeping in your bed
All the rubber ducks go quack, quack, quack
All the rubber ducks go quack

Chorus

So now in Dione Sidhe
There are duckies plain to see
No matter what direction you will turn
And you may go away
But the ducks are here to stay
All the rubber ducks go quack, quack, quack
All the rubber ducks go quack

Chorus x2
