Squire Benjamin William Sullivan stood in the middle of Light’s Hope Chapel in his underpants.

Actually, it was white linen pants and a shift, but the effect was approximately the same. The little chapel was warm, on the edge of …

This is stolen (shamelessly) from Truly Carmichael, from her album Swansong – which doesn’t appear to be available anymore on the internet. The original is called “For Sutan, King of Ansteorra”. I’ve added a bit, and made it work for a lady-fighter in the WoW universe.

Aely’s been singing this all week, being that she’s in good spirits again. I’m not brave enough to sing it for the internet, or I’d provide an mp3.

My socks fell in the horse trough – they’ve been in there all night
We muster in 3 minutes and my helmet’s too damn tight.
My armor fell into the lake, the rivets all went pop (*pop*)
I’ve stuck on plates with sticky glue, when will this morning stop

So tell the King I’ll join him soon, if armor I can borrow
And if I can’t climb up the hill? I guess we’ll win tomorrow.

There’s been a little mix-up with my armor on the truck.
Some bastard took my war-shield, with a buckler I am stuck.
I’m standing in the shield wall and I’m feeling some alarm…
There’s umpteen dozen scourge ahead, and a pie plate on my arm!

So tell the King I’ll join him soon, if armor I can borrow
And if I can’t climb up the hill? I guess we’ll win tomorrow.

I do not want to fathom how much longer this will take -
All of these armor issues – now I think my sword is fake.
It’s shiny and it’s sharpened, and the haft is weighted well,
But it’s bending under it’s own weight, now isn’t this just swell.

So tell the King I’ll join him soon, if armor I can borrow
And if I can’t climb up the hill? I guess we’ll win tomorrow.

  1. The original song was actually not mine at all, but was written by Arthur McLean. He was kind enough to give me permission to put it on my album.
