The Centoraurian Yodeller

Here's one. No ring, this is more a contest of speed and accuracy in singing.

The backround/beat is tapped out by slapping ones thighs, clapping hands, then snapping fingers. One child starts the beat, (slap, clap, snap), and the others join in.

A Centoraurian went yodelling
On a mountaintop high,
When along came an avalanche
interrupting his cry.

Oh holy...
Olly-rock-ki-ki-a
Olly-rock-ki-ku (Swoosh)
Olly-rock-ki-ki-a
Olly-rock-ki-ku (Swoosh)
Olly-rock-ki-ki-a
Olly-rock-ki-ku (Swoosh)
Olly-rock-ki-ki-a-ho

A Centoraurian went yodelling
On a mountaintop high,
When along came a Rimmerin
Interrupting his cry.

Oh holy...
Olly-rock-ki-ki-a
Olly-rock-ki-ku (Swoosh, Grrrr!)
Olly-rock-ki-ki-a
Olly-rock-ki-ku (Swoosh, Grrrr!)
Olly-rock-ki-ki-a
Olly-rock-ki-ku (Swoosh, Grrrr!)
Olly-rock-ki-ki-a-ho

...Iceland Mutt...(Pant Pant)
...Strata Cow...(Psht Psht)
...Pretty Girl...(Smooch Smooch)
...the Girl's Papa...("Get away!")

This is sung starting out slowly and speeding up with each verse, until only one person can sing it accurately and in time.

Here's something for you all ... from my very own mind for your reading 'pleasure' :D

My very own version of a brand new mining song sung by dwarf youngsters from all clans ... they arein a ring, with the 'miner' (and boar) in the centre of the ring, and as each new miner is named, the miner selects another to be the next miner. During the song, each of the 'miners' do mining actions, and the one who is the boar squeals like a pig when the boar's name is sung ...

"One dwarf went to mine"

One dwarf went to mine, went to mine for mithmez,
One dwarf and his boar, Tarl, went to mine for mithmez

Two dwarfs went to mine, went to mine for mithmez,
Two dwarfs, one dwarf and his boar, Tarl, went to mine for mithmez

Three dwarfs went to mine, went to mine for mithmez,
Three dwarfs, two dwarfs, one dwarf and his boar, Tarl, went to mine for mithmez

Four dwarfs went to mine, went to mine for mithmez,
Four dwarfs, three dwarfs, two dwarfs, one dwarf and his boar, Tarl, went to mine for mithmez

[And so on and so forth until we get to ...

Ten dwarfs went to mine, went to mine for mithmez
Ten dwarfs, nine dwarfs, eight dwarfs, seven dwarfs, six dwarfs, five dwarfs, four dwarfs, three dwarfs, two dwarfs, one dwarf and his boar, Tarl went to mine for mithmez

[for an added challenge, replace the number names with their Thergerim counterparts]

The above is based on 'Farmer went to mow'

I've never read "I am the Cheese", but I personally thought it was like reading "Green Eggs and Ham".  :D

I'm certainly enjoying the responses to my challenge!  These are great!

Hhmmm. I've had a couple of ideas for this one. Here's my initial 'rough draft' of one of them. I'll give it a bit more thought at work tomorrow  grin

Ten green Losh-oc, with their heads upon the block,
Ten green Losh-oc, with their heads upon the block,
And if the big, shiny axe blade should accidentally drop, CHOP!
There'd be nine green Losh-oc with their heads upon the block.

Etc etc.

I'm thinking of a similar version but with the orcs having their necks in a noose, but I'm struggling to rhyme.

And one that has recently come to mind that would possibly be sung by Brownie Youngsters ... most likely Rat Brownies ...

For your reading 'pleasure' ...

Five Llaoihrr Brownies

Five Llaoihrr Brownies went out one day,
On the back of snow owls far far away,
They discovered it was food they lacked,
But only four Llaoihrr Brownies came back.

Four Llaoihrr Brownies went out one day,
On the back of snow owls far far away,
They discovered it was food they lacked,
But only three Llaoihrr Brownies came back.

Three Llaoihrr Brownies went out one day,
On the back of snow owls far far away,
They discovered it was food they lacked,
But only two Llaoihrr Brownies came back.

Two Llaoihrr Brownies went out one day,
On the back of snow owls far far away,
They discovered it was food they lacked,
But only one Llaoihrr Brownies came back.

One Llaoihrr Brownies went out one day,
On the back of a snow owl far far away,
He discovered it was food he lacked,
But no Llaoihrr Brownies came back.

To Five Little ducks :D

The Orcen response to the above:

Ten big Losh-oc with their heads all in a noose,
Ten mad Losh-oc with their heads all in a noose,
And if one vexed Losh-oc should happen to get loose,
There'd be one less human executioner, the silly goose...

Another human children's rhyme, from Northern Sarvonia:


An Injerin elf went out to dance
Among the flowering cerubel plants
He (she) had such delightful fun,
that he sang for another elf to come.

Two Injerin elves went out to dance
Among the flowering cerubel plants
They had such delightful fun,
that they sang for another elf to come...


continues until all the children are dancing, concludes with:

All of the elves went out to dance
Among the flowering cerubel plants
They had such delightful fun,
that they didn't stop til the day was done!


( Okay, so it's based on "One Elephant Went Out To Play":  I don't think Sharon, Lois and Bram are going to sue me.  :D )

...

You have to smudge a little bit in that version ;)

My suggestion:

Five snowy owls flew out to play
Over the hills into the Vale
Skydivers went (... suggestion anyone? :D)
And only four snowy owls went back.

Edit: mine would be the version as sung by Llaoihrr children ;)

Yep :)

Although, I'd actually say I had to smudge a lot :D

Thanks, Alysse!

A great example of inspired creative co-operation, this thread!

If I may venture a suggestion towards Deklitch's and Irid's Brownie & owl version:

Five snowy owls flew out to play,
Over the hills and into the Vale.
The cruel storm blew, hard fell the hail:
And four snowy owls came home.

Four snowy owls ... (etc.)

Or, if you insist on everything (sort of) rhyming:

Five snowy owls flew out to play,
Over the hills and into the Vale.
The cruel storm blew,
hard fell the hail:
And four owls homeward flew.

No one?   Oh well, I was looking for an excuse anyhow....


Here's a children's counting song, which has been
cleverly translated  rolleyes so that it rhymes in both Gnomic and Tharian.
It's generally used for 'counting out' and choosing partners in games.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Blugim, blugim
Sphar tir spharin
Girim, gerim,
Klauz delmin,
It ir uy er,
Ap ort en ith,
Etli, kyer, orn!


Dance, dance,
Round and round,
Come and go,
Underground,
Zero one two three,
Four five six seven,
Eight, nine, ten!

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
