To The Crusades
Words by Danny Lammas, music by Dominic Behan. FILKed from 'Patriot's Game'

Come all ye young Knights bold, and list while I sing.
For to love one's country is an honourable thing.
It banishes fear like a Dragon's flame,
And it makes us all part of the Crusades again.

I first was a Knight, at the age of fourteen,
I learned how to sword swing, and I was so keen.
I learned of the heroes, and battles so old,
"Go to the Crusades", that' s what I was told.

The traitors of that land have too long been free,
Left singing songs of a black heresy.
So join with me brothers and take up the cry,
Crusade in Zenulatsin, and they all will die.

We will charge their gates and bring down the door,
and if one of us dies there, we'll kill fifteen more.
So sail to Orion and there we shall sing,
Of the Crusades and the glory they'll bring!

[musical interlude]

Our lines are now broken, dead the advance,
The Barbarians charged us, eyes in a trance.
So now we are fleeing, gone to the hills,
No glory for us now, just bodies and chills.

The Crusades were a lie friends, don't be fooled,
They want you to go there, so please don't be pulled!
Don't let them take you, to Zenulatsin,
You don't want to see that, what The Crusades do bring.

They never taught me, the horrors of war,
Of brave men fighting and fighting no more.
So as I lie here and look to the sky,
I wish that those priestly traitors would die,
I wish that those priestly traitors would die.

Just a short piece about the crusades over in Tropis -- what can I say? I got bored and then killed Alex by singing it to him! :D

I'd never heard this song before. I kinda like it.

I think I like your version better though. Not big on patriotism, but swinging swords around keenly is right up my alley.

I think it's funny, Tele, I was writing this just as you was posting your 'I'm a Loladin' FILK. :D

Currently I'm musing whether or not to record this piece of crap once my new mic gets here (my normal one bust last night, so chances are no Tropis this weekend). -_-

Actually, I saw yours was up when I logged on to submit mine. Still funny that the titles especially are quite similar.

Oh no! Microphones are key!
