The Price Of Command
Lyrics by Mercedes Lackey. Sung by Larry Warner (I think – correct me if I’m wrong).
he Mandalorian season 1 in four minutes, by wayof Marty Robbins.
Though I’ve been laid low
And my lifeblood spilled
Though my body be shattered, undaunted I rise
My will unbroken
“Unbroken,” song for an injured knight, by Michael Kelly. Sort of like “The Mary Ellen Carter,” but with more jousting. Full lyrics and chords are on the his YouTube page!
The King of the Cats has many abodes
Scattered along the Shadow Roads,
The entrance shows, and then it scats,
It answers to the King of the Cats.
“The King of the Cats” by Cat Faber, inspired by the October Daye books by Seanan McGuire. Lyrics available on Bandcamp.
This one required a LOT of squinting at Wookiepedia articles and [gasp] doing actual calculations to figure out Star Wars distances. Please appreciate the fact that this is the first filk I’ve had to pull out a calculator for.
As always, I’m giving blanket permission to anyone with a better voice than I have who wants to record this. Just make sure to tag me so I can go listen to it!
Farewell and adieu to you Twi’lek ladies
Farewell and adieu you Rylothean maids
For we have been recalled all back to Corellia
And in our return we must not be delayed
So we’ll rant and we’ll roar like Corellian spacers
We’ll rant and we’ll roar in the hyperspace glow
Until we make docking at Centerpoint Station
From Ryloth we’ve one-twenty parsecs to go
I’m the daughter of smugglers and true merchant traders
The stars call my blood and among them I roam
But I was born by the old Coronet spaceport
And now the Five Brothers are calling me home
We’ll head to the core and nudge the ship spinward
Head onward past Christophsis’ crystal green mines
We’ll keep our course coreward and true to the Run lanes
And soon we’ll be passing the Middle Rim line
Past Radnor and New Cov and Allanteen’s shipyards
Onwards past Denon’s great city so wide
Through to the Colonies and on to the Core worlds
‘Til betwixt the Twin Worlds our good ship will glide
Now let us drink up ‘til our mugs are all empty
Drink up that good whiskey, I’ll spot you a glass
Here’s to the health of all of us spacers
And here’s to the health of my true hearted lass
For your holiday listening pleasure. The Faithful Sidekicks do it again. 😀
