Sink the Vengeance by Sable

A filk of “Sink the Bismarck” by Johnny inspired by “The Toy Soldier Saga.” Available on Sable’s Bandcamp Page.

Lyrics:

In Spring of 5041 the war had just begun
The orcs, they had the biggest ship; they had the biggest guns
The Vengeance was the fastest ship that ever sailed the stars
On her deck were guns as big as deer and shells as big as carts

Out of the cold and foggy night came the elven ship the Dirk
And every elven spacehand knew they had to make it work
They had to sink the Vengeance, the terror of the stars
On her deck were guns as big as deer and shells as big as carts

We’ll find that orcish battleship that’s makin’ such a fuss
We gotta sink the Vengeance ’cause the worlds depend on us
We’ll hit the decks a-runnin’ boys and spin those guns around
When we find the Vengeance we gotta cut her down

The Dirk found the Vengeance, and on that fatal day
The Vengeance started firin’ fifteen hex away
“We gotta sink the Vengeance!” was the battle sound
But when the smoke had cleared away, the mighty Dirk went down

For six long days and weary nights they tried to find her trail
Zaor told the people “Put every ship a-sail
‘Cause somewhere out in Wildspace I know she’s gotta be
We gotta sink the Vengeance so the spaceways can be free!”

We’ll find that orcish battleship that’s makin’ such a fuss
We gotta sink the Vengeance ’cause the worlds depend on us
We’ll hit the decks a-runnin’ boys and spin those guns around
When we find the Vengeance we gotta cut her down

The fog was gone the seventh day and they saw Dukagsh’s’ sun
Ten hours away from homeworld the Vengeance made ‘er run
The admiral of the elvish fleet said “Turn those bows around!
We found that orcish battleship and we’re gonna cut her down!”

The elven guns were aimed and the shells were comin’ fast
The first shell hit the Vengeance, they knew she couldn’t last
That mighty orcish battleship is just a memory
“Sink the Vengeance” was the battle cry that shook the starry sea

We found that orcish battleship t’was makin’ such a fuss
We had to sink the Vengeance ’cause the worlds depend on us
We hit the decks a’runnin’ and we spun those guns around
Yeah, we found the mighty Vengeance and then we cut her down

We found that orcish battleship t’was makin’ such a fuss
We had to sink the Vengeance ’cause the worlds depend on us
We hit the decks a’runnin’ and we spun those guns around
Yeah, we found the mighty Vengeance, and then we cut her down

The Queen’s Dirk by Sable

 

A filk of “The Royal Oak” (traditional) inspired by “The Toy Soldier Saga.” Available on Sable’s Bandcamp Page.

Lyrics:

As we were sailing along the star sea,
We hadn’t been gone months, not two nor three,
When we saw ten sail, ten sail of orc
All men-o’-war full as big as we.

“Haul down your colours, you Elvish dogs!
Haul down your colours, do not refuse.
Haul down your colours, you Elvish dogs
Or your precious lives you will lose!”

Our captain being a valiant elf,
And a well bespoken an elf was he:
“Let it never be said we died like dogs,
For we shall fight most valiantly!”

“Go up aloft, you cabin boys,
And mount the mainmast, a topsail high,
For to spread the news to King Zaor’s fleet
That we’ll run the risk or else we’ll die!”

Well, the fight began about six in the morn,
And unto the orbit of the sun.
And at the rise of the next dawn,
Where we saw ten ships we couldn’t see but one.

For three we sank and three we burned,
And three we caused to run away,
And one we towed to Dragon Harbour,
For to let them know we’d won the day.

If anyone then should inquire
As to our gallant captain’s name,
Well, Captain Yvoleth was our commander
And the Queen’s Dirk was our ship by name.

A filk of traditional sea shanty “Santy Anno,” Inspired by the Spelljammer(tm) setting for Dungeons & Dragons(tm).

lyrics

So heave ‘er up and away we’ll go,
Aweigh, Rock of Bral now,
The Rock of Bral is a place I know,
Along the Arcane Inner Flow.
Well the Rock of Bral is a wretched place,
Aweigh, Rock of Bral now,
Where the locals will kill ye if they hate your face,
Along the Arcane Inner Flow
Ye can find anything ye want and more
Aweigh, Rock of Bral now,
Including some things ye didn’t bargain for
Along the Arcane Inner Flow
Oh, the slavin’ trade is alive and well
Aweigh, Rock of Bral now,
A neogi ship is a passage to Hell
Along the Arcane Inner Flow
So heave ‘er up and away we’ll go,
Aweigh, Rock of Bral now,
The Rock of Bral is a place I know,
Along the Arcane Inner Flow.
There’s plenty o’ gold, so I’ve been told
Aweigh, Rock of Bral now,
But don’t get lost in the barrios
Along the Arcane Inner Flow
If ye go on in to Luigi’s bar
Aweigh, Rock of Bral now,
Ye might get drunk but ye won’t get far
Along the Arcane Inner Flow
Well, on the Rock’s where I long to be
Aweigh, Rock of Bral now,
With a cask of rum on a drinkin’ spree
Along the Arcane Inner Flow
So heave ‘er up and away we’ll go,
Aweigh, Rock of Bral now,
The Rock of Bral is a place I know,
Along the Arcane Inner Flow.
Well them elven lads I do adore
Aweigh, Rock of Bral now,
With their sparklin’ eyes and their silken hair
Along the Arcane Inner Flow
When I was a young lass in me prime
Aweigh, Rock of Bral now,
I’d have those Navy boys two at a time
Along the Arcane Inner Flow
But I’d never leave the stars to settle down
Aweigh, Rock of Bral now,
When I can have a lad in every town
Along the Arcane Inner Flow
So heave ‘er up and away we’ll go,
Aweigh, Rock of Bral now,
The Rock of Bral is a place I go,
Along the Arcane Inner Flow.
Well the times is hard and the wages low
Aweigh, Rock of Bral now,
But we starhands must all roll and go
Along the Arcane Inner Flow
So heave ‘er up and away we’ll go,
Aweigh, Rock of Bral now,
The Rock of Bral is a place I know,
Along the Arcane Inner Flow.
