FREE Spell! '88 (parody of Freedom! '90 by George Michael)

Post by Drassil » Sat Mar 05, 2016 2:11 pm

Sung from the point of view of dungeoneer Mark Wickson, on the verge of FREE being spellcast to make his team the first winners of Knightmare. Based on Freedom! '90 by George Michael. Video, lyrics

I won't let you down
I will not mess it up
Gotta have some faith in the team
It's the one good thing that I've got
I won't let you down
So please don't give me up
Because I would really, really love to live the dream

Heaven knows I was just a young boy
There was more that I wanted to be
I went every day to some old school in Oxfordshire
And no way was it enough for me
I watched Knightmare
Said "I'll go there"
Found three friends who wouldn't scare
On your Children's ITV
But today the way I play the game is not the same
No way
Think I'm gonna get me victory

I think there's something to admit
I think that there's no shame in it
Back when you watched all this begin
Did you think anyone would win?
"Oh... what a pity, never mind"
"A dagger's no use if you're blind"
I just thought, for goodness' sake
I'll beat the dungeon, make no mistake

All we have to do now
Is take these letters and make a spell somehow
All we have to see
Is that the F's before the R
And then it's the double E
E E

FREE spell
I won't let you down
FREE spell
I will not mess it up
FREE spell
Gotta have some faith in the team
(We've got the silver spurs to take)
It's the one good thing that I've got
FREE spell
I won't let you down
FREE spell
So please don't give me up
FREE spell
Because I would really, really love to live the dream

Level 1 had started with Folly
In the kitchen a maid greeted me
She was cooking toads, she must have been off her trolley
She was living in a fantasy
We rang a bell
Went down a well
And Merlin gave us a FREEZER spell
Then we got to Level 3
But today the way I play the game has got to change
Oh yeah
Now I need a sprig of energy

I stopped a gargoyle feeling blue
Met Merlin for another clue
I have the letters F, R, E
And guessed what they'll turn out to be
A SUN spell helped me find the way
A SLEEP spell kept the croc at bay
I just hope you won't suggest
Sometimes the maid is not worth the quest

All we have to do now
Is take these letters and make a spell somehow
All we have to see
Is that the F's before the R
And then it's the double E
E E

FREE spell
I won't let you down
FREE spell
I will not mess it up
FREE spell
Gotta have some faith in the team
(We've got the silver spurs to take)
It's the one good thing that I've got
FREE spell
I won't let you down
FREE spell
So please don't give me up
FREE spell
Because I would really, really love to live the dream

Well it looks like the road to heaven
Leading out past the guillotine
And I knew this way Mogdred was mastered
We'd have a victory scene
Don't forget my name: Mark Wickson
First winning dungeoneer
And there were seven more
Through Treguard's door
All following my team of four

Don't you forget
Don't you forget
Don't you forget
Don't you forget
Don't you forget
Four of a kind
Don't you forget we're four of a kind

Don't you forget
Don't you forget
And after all this time
I just hope you won't suggest
Sometimes the maid
Is not worth the quest

All we have to do now
Is take these letters and make a spell somehow
All we have to see
Is that the F's before the R
And then it's the double E
E E

FREE spell
FREE spell
Our FREE spell
We've got the silver spurs to take
FREE spell
We're casting our FREE spell
Our FREE spell
We've got the silver spurs to take
We've got the silver spurs, the silver spurs

May not be what you want to see
Sorry, folks but Gretel's free
There's her face now
I get to live
