A: Collecting songs to books

Post by Feeniks on Wed Oct 29, 2014 4:28 am

Minister of internal affairs is asking all poets, songwriters, storytellers to dig peed into their archives and post up here songs and poems of Light. Those will be all collected together into one book for all belivers to enjoy. Book will be distruputed to everyone wishing to have a copy and it can be used for masses, marches, celebrations and private parties. This book will hopefully see the daylight during campaign to the Blastedlands and beyond, to uplift the mood of our brave soliders.

Immediately it was also requersted similar project to more earthly songs. And same time as we are collenting songs about Light, it doesn't bring much extra work to collect some same time. Priority is however to Light songs. These songs will be published as separate book from the Songs of Light book and just the like, these will be also given to anyone who wishes a copy.

OOC:
Feel free to post ANY song/poem here. Can be about the Holy Light or someting more tavern setting appropriate.
Also if you know good youtube song, but you are not a songwriter yourself, feel free to post a link. It should have it's lyrics on the clip, to make the editing of the book easy.
Especially I would love to get my hands on "Army of Light marches on" song that was seen/heard about a year ago at Kalimdor Campaign against Garrosh.
Both books will be made GHI item and you can ask those from me. To make distribution more easy, I will also make the items copyable by others.

Remember to tell: Titel of the song and to witch book it should belong to (note, I may disagree and put it into another book, so no tavern song ends up into Holy song book Razz)

Ty, I hadn't. I def could take some of the shortest and Alliance appropriate songs in, but some are just waaaay too long to make nice 1-2 page GHI song.

And also I would like to hear what this server community can put up with.

Post by Tamil on Wed Oct 29, 2014 6:48 am

One day at a campfire, Tamil was asked to sing a song. She picked this childhood favourite of hers from her birthplace, Westfall.

((I wrote this adaptation of "The Yellow Rose of Texas" to be about a broad-shouldered man with a beard instead of about a girl. It is also a tribute to a certain Beardy Bear I know in real life.  I love you  ))



The Bearded Bear of Westfall

There's a Bearded Bear in Westfall, who I am gonna see,
Nobody else could miss him, not half as much as me!
He roared so when I left him, it like to broke my heart,
And when I ever find him, may we never more no part.

He's the Beardiest Bear of brown, oh that this lassie ever knew,
His eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew!
You may talk about your Varian Wrynn, and sing of Dwarves grand,
But at the side of Westfall's Bear is just where I will stand.


Where the sea do hit the Longshore, the starry skies are bright,
He roams along the coasts, oh in the quiet summer night!
He knows that I remember, when we parted long ago,
I promised to come back again, and not to leave him so.

He's the Beardiest Bear of brown, oh that this lassie ever knew,
His eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew;
You may talk about your Varian Wrynn, and sing of Dwarves grand,
But at the side of Westfall's Bear is just where I will stand.


Oh now I'm gonna find him, for my heart is full of woe,
And we'll play the games together, that we played so long ago!
We will sit together gladly, and we'll sing the songs of yore,
And the Bearded Bear of Westfall shall be mine forevermore.

He's the Beardiest Bear of brown that this lassie ever knew,
His eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew!
You may talk about your Varian Wrynn, and sing of Dwarves grand,
But at the side of Westfall's Bear is just where I will stand.

Dear Minister of Internal affairs,

I have read your petition and under the normal provisions of second hand sales of Djego Stonehead and the CutThroat Alley Lad songs We are providing this small sampling of Djego's greatest hits that have been performed from stormwind to theramore and from darnassus to Shattrath in some place or  time in the past decade. Songs from his first and second hit audiotronic cassettes. We hope this helps.

The Bloody Battle of Hillsbrad

In borderland raids, hey came with their horde; ransacking villages, taking the spoils
With nothing to lose and possessions few: Bold, sturdy, Fearless and cruel!

Four thousand men all dead in one day
They would not renounce their Corpse bound ways
Thirty years of campaigning consumed
To subject this horde to the Lightly sword

The Bloody Battle of Hillsbrad!

Rivers flowing red
with the blood of forsaken scum that I did behead!

I shed the blood of the orcish horde
I  shed the blood of the trollish horde
I shed the blood of the tauren horde
I shed it at hillsbrad.
I shed the blood of four thousand Forsaken horde.
I shed the blood of the Orcish horde
I shed the blood of the Forsaken Horde.

(Djego's note - with the revelation of the Iron horde coming again, we can modernise this by shedding the blood of the Iron Horde in the battle of the blasted lands)

this song  was so perfectly stupid and generic, i didn't need to change any lyrics. ))

Shine

There are so many wars right now in this world
There are so many things not right
There are too many people hurt in this world
There are too many men that fight

Time is now to make the change
Time is on our side
Love will make us glow in the dark
So open up your heart
Are you ready for a brand new start?

Shine
People, let your light shine
Let the darkness fade away
Step into a brighter day
Don't forget about our world today

Let your light shine
Maybe the answer is just this simple song
Let everybody shine along
To keep the world from going wrong
Let your light shine

Shine!
Shine!
Shine!

A shaman's Lament

Sitting on the tavern's only bed
a scene of you running through my head
a far sight view called missing you
based on a dream that is true
I trade my soul at the downstairs bar
ten silver pieces for a pinot noir

I can't go forward I can't remind
You're in every vision in my mind

Why don't you walk through the nonexistant door
Walk through the noneexistant door
mhm
Why don't you walk through my door
Walk through my
Door.

Maybe he's just a pervert

Djego is a mage
He is a human mage
Maybe he's just a pervert
But he's still Djego!

Djego!

Stalking all the female humans
Dissing all the female gnomes
standing infront of female Night Elves
And staring at their breasts

Staring at their breasts!

Staring at their breasts!

Big Pink Tabard

So why I ask
I cannot comprehend
Why women run away
And why they don't want to bend
So next I run into a girl
Who helps me to get laid
I'll offer her a Job
So next time she'll get paid

Ahhhhh
Girls watch out Djego Stonehead's on his way
Oooeh
He chases ladiesbut his tabard looks so gay

Does this also include songs that are found in-game? Or only the ones we made ourselves?

I remember hearing this a long time ago at an RP event, I remembered it's name but none of the lyrics.

A quick web search turned it up!

It's a spoof of Voltaire's "The Beast of Pirate's Bay", called "The Beast of Booty Bay". 

THE SONG:
Gather weary travelers
I have a tale to tell
it might just save your lives
but only if you listen well,

out there beyond the dockside
and just around the way.
there is a sign that say's beware
"the beast of booty bay"

Some say she's a monster 
that was once sylvanas' pet
but if you want to look for her
you surely would regret
They say that she stands ten feet tall
and there's no place to hide,
everyone whose seen her twice
don't make it back alive

don't you go out after dark
and don't turn off the light
'cause out there is a creature
who occupies the night
She'll tear you up in pieces
if you ever come her way
you've seen the sign it says beware
the beast of booty bay.

Some say she's a demon
who came here straight from hell
to banish the forsaken
and sinners just as well
I see you don't believe me
but you do have to agree,
from what I've said this crazy bitch
should never have been free

don't you go out after dark
and don't turn off the light
'cause out there is a creature
who occupies the night
She'll tear you up in pieces
if you ever come her way
you've seen the sign it says beware
the beast of booty bay.

You've heard of warden stillwater 
who was turning men undead
He really was a piece of work
he filled hillsbrad with dread
one day he met the creature
I'm not sad at all he's dead
with one swipe, her massive paw
took off the warden's head. 

don't you go out after dark
and don't turn off the light
'cause out there is a creature
who occupies the night
She'll tear you up in pieces
if you ever come her way
you've seen the sign it says beware
the beast of booty bay.

Varien Wryn you know of him
they once called him lo'gosh
because he fought just like a wolf
when in the horde he fought,
one day he met the monster
and it isn't hard to see
why now these days he never leaves
he safety of his keep

don't you go out after dark
and don't turn off the light
'cause out there is a creature
who occupies the night
She'll tear you up in pieces
if you ever come her way
you've seen the sign it says beware
the beast of booty bay.

Well now the bar is empty
and there's only you and me
and if you care I'd like to share
how this song came to be
so come a little closer if 
if you really want to know
this very sad and woeful tale
didn't happen long ago

I was minding my own business
when I came to booty bay
and there i saw the creature who
was in such a disarray, 
She wanted so much to be a thing
which everyone would fear
a scourge upon the 7 seas
and she shed a lonely tear

no one would fear a worgen
they thought she was a cur
and so i promised Tiberon
to warn everyone of her,
And all I could to do help her
was to tell everyone each day
and I wrote the sign that said
beware the beast of booty bay!
and what did it say?

don't you go out after dark
and don't turn off the light
'cause out there is a creature
who occupies the night
She'll tear you up in pieces
if you ever come her way
you've seen the sign it says beware
hell I should know I put it there!
heed the sign that says beware
the beast of booty bay.
