Songs of Bard Magnus "Dam" Harleigh part III

The Death of Morganbach

It was a day, late in Autumn,
in a crypt dark 'n ' damp.
A place where light didn't live
and even inner strength failed.
Mage of the MUPPETS, Morganbach
suffered more than he could endure.
Out cold, to the floor of stone he fell.
Life had left him and he departed
from this here world, to what awaits all
of us after our time is to leave.

Wrapped in cloth, the evil mummies attacked us,
the MUPPETS put up a fight like no other.
Consciousness left some of us
as their dead fists pommeled our bodies.
More than a dozen we killed but one still remained.
This evil one cast spells at the MUPPETS
and we replied with magic of our own
and the most powerful were those of Morganbach
Fire and acid flew from our hands
and with full force they struck this being of evil.

Orion, Morganbach and I, Dam, closed in on this creature of darkness
With all our might we pommeled him.
I took a heavy hit and the rest of this song
is told me by those who remained conscious.
As Morganbach took the hit that slew him on the spot,
Orion, with Ceoline's aid, took the staff that Morganbach had carried.
Staff struck with divine strength and the evil fell.
As I regained my senses, Jack and Orion were resting.
The fight had been won but price had been high.
We had lost one of our strength but life was to be restored to him soon
here after.

Apple Pie and Mead

Oi, yee jolly little fellows
come join the MUPPETS in a toast.
A toast for friendship to forget
all the ill feelings that Jack
might have caused in you. For our thoughts
on this matter are similar to yours:

Tie her down and shut her up!
Tie her down and shut her up!
Tie her down and shut her up!

Apple pie to fill the stomach.
Mead to cleanse to gullet.
Song and dance to move our bodies
and after all sleep to rest.
And if Jack were to wake you up,
or hold a thorn in her hand,
just wake us up with a chant:

Tie her down and shut her up!
Tie her down and shut her up!
Tie her down and shut her up!

This song for you I wrote,
a song to strengthen your big hearts.
Life can be hard, but worth effort pays,
as we MUPPETS well know.
Death may come and take us away;
but at least we can say:

Tie her down and shut her up!
Tie her down and shut her up!
Tie her down and shut her up!
