Aside from Gean's latest work, which is included in the Nightshade Carnival entry), we've got another musical piece for you, this time from Alysse:

North Sarvonia Girls (1:18 minutes, 1.20 MB)

It's actually a parody of a well-known song as Alysse informs me, and I definitely know that melody, but don't know the title. Anyway, I guess despite the melody is borrowed, if it is declared as a parody with credits given, it could be put on the site somewhere on a special page - it just wouldn't be something that is uniquely Santharian, but as a declared take on that song, it should be fine methinks. - Opinions on that perhaps?

The song is funny and well sung and actually tells us something of the Northern tribes as well ;) - I like it - well done, Alysse!  grin

And the lyrics to the song are as follows:

North Sarvonia Girls
(with apologies to Brian Wilson and Mike Love)

Oh, the Naurooth girls are lovely,
clad in nothing but their hair
And the half-orc maids can be fetching too,
though their fangs you must beware

The Kuglimz nomad daughters
can uplift a man all right,
And the curvy Iceland ladies know,
how to keep you warm all night

I wish they all could be North Sarvonia…girls!

In the summer months they like to swim
and they leave their clothes behind
That's when I set sail up the Aelyvian coast
to watch them sporting in the brine

I've sailed about this great big world
and I've seen all kinds of girls
But now I've set forth to go back up North
Back to the cutest girls in the world!

I wish they all could be North Sarvonia…girls!

Don't we have one or two more of these parody types floating around? (hint: Fields of Aurium) This is just a thought, but maybe they could have their own page in the library or something, with the appropriate recognitions/apologies, etc.  Then we could enjoy them and possibly even encourage more.  At the Moot, Judy and I sang a song we wrote based on "An English Country Garden" that had been thoroughly Santharized, and if she still has the words for that, it could be included too.  So that's at least three that I know of, and there are probably more.  (I'll bet Tharoc and his friends have a couple up their sleeves, though those might not be printable here.   rolleyes)

What do you think, Art?

"What are the flowers that do grow / in a garden of Santharia?"    I think it's around somewhere...

Oh look!  I found it!  My desk isn't that cluttered with parchment scrolls and papre scraps after all...

-------------------------------------------------
WHAT ARE THE FLOWERS
Filk Song for Santharia
Bard Judith and Alysse the Likely -  June 2005


What are the flowers that do grow
In a garden of Santharia?
We’ll sing you all the ones that we know
And your hearts will be made merry-a!

Crimson rose, Anemonel
Azureflower and Cerubell
Lotann, All-flower, Dalferia
Erissa’s Tears, Hanging Horn, Sunflower bright gold
In a garden of Santharia!

What are the songbirds whose voices ring
In a garden of Santharia?
We’ll name them all in this song that we sing
So enjoy their lovely aria!

Injoh Bird and Ae-lir-el
Haloen and Glitra fell
Psitta, Culoo, and doves in the dell
There’s the Ricau white,
And the Dark-Which-Sings-At-Night
In a garden of Santharia!

LOL, Alysse!

I have to reread that entry of yours!

The picture of a Kuglimz girl lifting up her love does not want to go out of my mind!

Oh, I didn't mean that was all the Nauroothians EVER wear, Talia--that's just the favorite costume from the point of view of the sailor lad, who enjoys watching Northern girls skinny-dipping.  Bathing suits aren't part of the Northern costume--though they'd probably look cute in pard-skin bikinis, methinks. :D

Outstanding, Alysse!  clap2

You could include my "Old Cap'n Foke" in this category, methinks, as it is sung to the tune of "Old King Cole".
And as you so astutely pointed out, thelads from "3 Fat B******s" have a veritable plethora of these parodies, but alas, they may prove too "pornographically verbose" for family viewing!

I'm particularly fond of this kind of verse, and I'm sure folk will find it much easier to write this kind of lyric if we have a dedicated section for them.

@ Arti  -  "California Girls" by the Beach Boys, methinks!

Or, in the words of my mates in the band "Fornicatin' with girls". Ahem.

Use the force, Luke.

And if that doesn't work, try switching it off and back on again.

We could add yet another award to the Development Awards then--Best Parody of the year!   rolling  Or maybe we'd better make it Best Printable Parody...(smiles winsomely and semi-innocently in Tharoc's direction)
