Bardic Songs

This year at True Dungeon, I wrote alternative lyrics to a few popular songs to use when portraying the Bard.  Due to their popularity, I’ll be posting some of them here.

The first I actually had a karaoke track for, so here is a recording of me singing alternative lyrics for “Let It Go” from the movie Frozen.

Let Them Go

The dunes glow gold in the desert tonight
Not a footprint to be seen
An island of vegetation
An oasis very green

The wind is hissing like the snake cult deep inside
In the dark we go, all the dwarves to find.

Please let us in
Please let us see
What became of the dwarves of ice crag keep
Concealed
The fate
we need to know.
Please let us know.

Let them go.
Let them go.
Don’t hold them back any more.
Let them go.
Let them go.
You’ll die in blood and gore.

I don’t care what you do or say
We will free them all
Your kind never bothered us anyway.

Funny how some pounding
Makes everything look small
And the fears that once you wielded
Can’t help you win at all.

It’s time to see what we can do
To pass the puzzles and break through.
To fight the hordes and win the day.
So brave.

Let them go.
Let them go.
You’ll be one with the wind and sky.
Let them go.
Let them go.
You’ll never see us cry.

Here we stand.
And here we’ll stay
Let the vipers fall

Our weapons flurry through the air into our foes
Our spells are spiraling like magic missiles there they go
And one cast formalizes like a fiery blast
We’re never going back
You’ll soon be in our past!

Let them go.
Let them go.
And we’ll shine like the break of dawn
Let them go.
Let them go.
That chance you had is gone.

Here we stand
We will win the day
Let the fight rage on.
Your kind never bothered us anyway.

(more to come)
