Thought I'd turn my hand to this as well, and I picked on that classic song "Body Blow" by the Headless Chickens... and I doubt any of you have heard of that excellent New Zealand band, let along the song. Unfortunately, it's not on the web anywhere yet (not even their MySpace page...). Anyway... here's the song!


Saving Throw

Get thrown in the fire
Or touched up by the dead
Reflex or will power
Or fortitude instead
Rock fall from the ceiling
Slip and fall on ice
Falling, fleeing, remain standing
Make that saving, roll that dice
Plus one, add one, just don’t roll one
Red one, blue one, clear one, dark one
Hands perspire, dice go slow
How do you make your saving throw?

Keep it in a special bag,
Labelled with a tag
Curse it with a fearsome nag
Wipe it with a rag
Get d20s licked or sucked
Or rolled up in a cloth and struck
Swig a drink, read a scroll
Take the bonus from the troll
Spin around in lazy circle
Decile, Vengtile, or percentile
How they gonna stop the woe?
How do you make your saving throw?

Saving Throw
Saving Throw
How do you make your saving throw?
Do you roll it, fast or slow?
Do you pass, or do you no?
Saving Throw

Hands perspire, dice go slow
Tell me rules that I don’t know
How you gonna stop the woe?
Saving Throw

Hands perspire, dice go slow
Tell me rules that I don’t know
How you gonna stop the woe?
Saving Throw

Breath weapon or spells
Or petrify, recover (roll it)
Polymorph, keep it away
Rod, Staff or Wand a bother
Save against death magic
Or poison as a chore
Paralyze completes the set
Go back to saves from years before
Do you cus or do you plead?
Do you ‘yay!’ or do you bleed?
It will make you want to cry, you know
How do you make your saving throw?

(Next time, I'll simply have to pick a tune that is available...)

You never know.

I did a FILK on a modern song (a Justin Timberlake one) and no-one had heard of that so if worse happens and no-one has heard it they'll still say nice things like:

I don't know the tune but the lyrics look good :D

As Snackgirl said, good lyrics.
If noone knows the tune it means you can release a recording of it and we won't know if you're singing it all wrong. :D
