Tree Friend Tree Foe: Bolt Action Five

By David Goldstein

"It's never just a TV show. It's the best thing I've ever known." A musical tribute to the Greater Game.


Tree Friend Tree Foe was released by Bolt Action Five in March 2007.

Fan videos with the original mix can be found on YouTube. The various other mixes of the song are harder to come by, though here is Dan Le Sac's:

Knightmare isn't named in the song, but Treguard is. "Tree friend" was a term used by Oakley the tree troll.

Lyrics

Well I'll bet

That you don't know that gameshow where the player wears a helmet

And walks around this maze that isn't really there

And I'll guess

That you don't know I watched it when I was a kid

Well hell yes

It taught me more than either parent ever did

Be you tree friend, be you tree foe

It's never just a TV show

Be you tree friend, be you tree foe

Be you tree friend, be you tree foe

Don't say it's just a TV show

It's the best thing I've ever known

Turn left, get the bread

Can't spell magic? You're dead

Treguard with his trendy beard says

"Is this OK or just weird?"
