The Red Mage (parody of The Red Flag)

Post by Drassil » Sat Feb 27, 2016 3:44 pm

Since socialist anthem the The Red Flag already has "dungeons dark" in its lyrics, I've made a Knightmare parody of it. This version honours Hordriss. The original words are on Wikipedia. There's a performance here of all six verses.

The people's mage wears deepest red
With matching streaks upon his head
But do not think him stiff and cold
His heart is made of purest gold

[Chorus:]
So praise the stars that Hordriss came
To light our way with magic flame
Though goblins flinch and run to Fear
You're safe with Red Mage, dungeoneer

He scared a skull ghost from his place
Gave added scales to Brother Mace
To Motley's voice he took offence
He cursed Sir Hugh and made him dense

[Chorus]

It's Simon he first looked upon
In Series 3, then he was gone
He wasn't scared of Leo's sword
He only left 'cause he got bored

[Chorus]

The spells he gives can save the day
Though what BUT did, we cannot say
A spanner might stop moving floors
But Hordriss magic opens doors

[Chorus]

It suited him to help the good
And fitted with his fatherhood
While beggar, tortoise, witch or cat
He still was great, remember that

[Chorus]

With head in helmet swear we all
To praise him in each hallowed hall
In dungeons dark or caverns grim
And will not call his daughter dim

[Chorus]
