Where can I find the words to this? the neo-filker cried.
Page 50 in your Westerfilk, the older filker sighed.
I ve heard this song a score of times! the neo-filker cried.
I ve heard it once or twice myself, the veteran replied.
But they re singing Banned From Argo ;
you can hear the trufen hiss.
Nine hundred other filksongs and the neos ask for this!
I feel a sudden urge to step outside and try to miss
Their singing Banned From Argo at the filksing.
What makes that woman s eyes bug out? the neo-filker cried.
The song s too high, the song s too high, the veteran replied.
What makes that fellow clutch his chest? the neo-filker cried.
The song s too low, the song s too low, the veteran replied.
For they re singing Banned From Argo ,
and you ll see it s quite a strain
To rumble through the verses and still squeak through the refrain.
And when you hear them try it you will see why I complain
That they re singing Banned From Argo at the filksing.
Who s that, who s got her ears stopped up? the neo-filker cried.
It s Leslie Fish, it s Leslie Fish, the veteran replied.
What s that, that whimpers overhead? the neo-filker cried.
The guy whose room is right upstairs, the veteran replied.
But they re done with Banned From Argo ;
you can hear the final chord.
We begged em not to do it, but our pleading was ignored.
The trufen want their tully and they sure are looking bored
After singing Banned From Argo at the filksing.
