Parody of W.O.L.D. by Harry Chapin

Post by Drassil » Sat May 21, 2016 1:51 pm

A song about an ogre, parodying W.O.L.D., Harry Chapin's song about a radio DJ. Original lyrics here; official audio (live) here. Since I first had this idea several years ago, a man nicknamed "Grimmy" has become one of the country's most famous radio DJs.

Hello there, Mrs. G.
What did you think when you saw me back in the crystal ball?
What did the kid say when he knew
It was his father walking tall?

Remember how we thought about a dungeon life
And you said, "That's the place to be"
And how I got the job as a violent slob
The day you married me?

We ate two kids and I was into chewing rock
But I just had to stomp around
It's been one year since I made it here
Let me tell you 'bout what's gone down

I am the dungeon ogre: Grim-W-O-L-D
Chasing all the dungeoneers in Knightmare Series 3
I might not use my voice to tell you you're my queen
Wonder what became of you in Episode 16

The stalkin' I did of that Simon kid
I did it far too slow
He got to an elf who called me fat
What a bitter blow

Oh before that I went for Cliff, but Mellisandre
She stopped me from getting too close
Then I found my way to him again, in our own wellway room
But down the well he goes

I am the dungeon ogre: Grim-W-O-L-D
Chasing all the dungeoneers in Knightmare Series 3
I might not use my voice to tell you you're my queen
Wonder what became of you in Episode 16

I'm making extra money doing demolition
'Cause I walk through doors, you see
I get thank you letters from a lot of people
For causing Casper's redundancy

I got a spot on the top of my head
Just begging for a new toupée
There's an aching my gut from when I bit your mutt
So his other two heads can stay

One day there was a crayon scheme
And a well that had to be drawn
But I thundered in and raised my arms
And Kelly was forlorn

Thinkin' that I should stop ogring
And run a market stall
Otherwise I'll bang my head
Up against a talking wall

Okay, missus, I see
You like Festus more than me
But, old girl, it must be said
You're less safe around him, 'cause he's a thoroughbred

I am the dungeon ogre: Grim-W-O-L-D
Chasing all the dungeoneers in Knightmare Series 3
I might not use my voice to tell you you're my queen
Wonder what became of you in Episode 16
