Gerout is having a baby! (with a little help from his wife) This calls for... a song! All together now: (to the tune of 'My Favorite Things' from the Sound of Music)

Kittens and puppies and kobolds and stirges
Bragdor the Ogre and bunnies and birdies
Piggies and horsies and moocows and hens
These are a few of my baby's new friends

When the Warg bites
When the dwarf sings
When her diaper's green
I serve up a few of her favorite friends
And then she won't need to scream

(Not with her mouth full, she won't)

Golden-haired dollies with kung-fu-grip actions
Teddys and yoyos and plush double axes
Rattles and drums that make plenty of noise
These are a few of my baby's new toys

When the Warg bites
When the dwarf sings
When her diaper's green
I fetch her a few of her favorite toys
And then she will stop her scream

When the dwarf bites
Even worse: sings
When her diaper's green
I play with a few of her noisiest toys
And then I won't hear her scream

(Oh Gruumsh, please make it stop)


(I was gonna add a verse about all the drugs and barbiturates a daddy could get acquianted with to block out the baby's screaming, but I decided it wasn't funny, since Gerout never was much of a boozer. ;))

Nice job Mr Monkey :)

You seem to have a knack for writing filk.

How is your singing voice? :P

Thanks! :D I believe I have the potential for great operatic performances, or maybe that's just brewer's goiter. :P

It has been brought to my attention that the original version has a lot more verses than my silly spoof (whoops! :oops:), so here's a couple more:

Patty-cake, hide-and-seek, plunder-the-village
Peek-a-boo, koochy-koo, slaughter-and-pillage
Quick Draw and Sunder and piggyback rides
These are the games I will play with my child

Curious George, BFGs and Tom Sawyer
Beowulf, Conan and other Destroyers
Name any story from Zulu to Babe
Junior's got it on audio tape


EDIT: Improved the verses a little.

I'd give you a B on the rhymes but an A+ on the random stuff you managed to make fit the rhythm. Well done!
