A new contest...Why yes I think I will 2 months 4 days ago #13

My entry has been submitted/emailed.

I performed it, so if it is allowed I will post it here for people to enjoy for it's either musical quality, or it's train wreck appeal.

Ok...as much as I loved creating mine, I really adore yours as well. Well done.

Oh, Community Music Experience...that explains it. Nicely done. My only experience is having written a song for my fiance to perform at OVFF a few years ago during their Iron Filker competition. That said, it should always be fun doing something like this. I figure if I win, cool, if not, then I hope to have brought some smiles. :-)

True Dungeon Man -- Sung to the tune of Piano Man by Billy Joel

It’s 9am Gen Con Saturday
As the True Dungeon crowd rushes in
There’s an old time gamer sittin’ next to me
He’s waiting for the room coach to begin
He says: Son, have you played the TD game before?”
I say, I’m not really sure how this one goes
I’ve played RPG’s galore and I’m really hardcore
I follow Gygax, but I’m new to these shows

Lori-la-la de-de da
Lori-la de-de da da-da-da

Tell me of your game Mr.True Dungeon Man
I’d like to learn how to play by tonight
I’m really in the mood for some hack and slash
And you’re holding that fistful of tokens really tight

Now Drugar at the players bar is a friend of mine
He gets me my blue milk for free
He’s quick with a quote or the breaching of a moat
But he’d rather be on a character run with Fiddy
He says, Jeff these rules questions are killing me
As a smile suddenly came across his face
Well I’m sure that I would have more time to play the game
Right after I create the Token Data Base

Lori-la-la de-de da
Lori-la de-de da da-da-da

Now Lazlo is a long time True Dungeon player
Rumor is he met his wife on a run
He’s over there talking to Lori Martin, because she is the smart-one
Killing time before he starts his fun
Now the key to the game is pick your character
There are 10 of those from which to choose
Make sure that you get one with a lot of hit points
Or else, I’m sure you will probably loose

Tell me of your game Mr.True Dungeon Man
I’m itchin how to play alright
I’m really intrigued how you slide
And you’re holding those tokens really tight

So you’re playing it safe with a fighter
The next are your character tokens to arrange
Armor, Weapons and Beads, Ioun Stones, Charms and Greaves
Ultra Rare from Trents Tokens, they are insane
And you step to the table and then you slide
Just as fast, you move out of the way
You get back in the line, for you are soon out of time
As the corner lights and music starts to play

Oh Lori-la-la de-de da
Lori-la de-de da da-da-da

Tell me of your game O-Great True Dungeon Man
I’m playing with Jeff Martin tonight
I see low light levels in the rooms
And now I know why you hold those tokens really tight

Spud :evil:

I just sent my entry off. I've been stuck on re-writing the last two lines I had left for days and randomly my brain decided at 2:30am it was the perfect time to finally get its act in gear and come up with something that fit :laugh:

So here is my entry that I emailed to Laz last night.

Token Rhapsody Sung to the Tune of Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen

Is this the gamer’s life?
Is this dungeon fantasy?
Dropped a token on my slide
Rolled in the corner, it’s too dark to see
I squint with my eyes
Look for it on all sides and see
I’m just a poor slider, it’s bad depth perception for me
Tokens come and tokens go
I slide ‘em high, slide ‘em low
Anyway the table flows, it’s no crit 20’s for me, for me

The DM, just killed my man
Put a strange wand against his head
Rolled some dice, now he’s dead
DM, my run had just begun
But now you’ve thrown my character all away
DM, oooo
Did you mean to petrify my guy
If I’m not alive by the end of the room sound the warning
Carry on, Carry on, as the Cleric readies a potion of Death’s Door

Too late, the rooms end has come
I spill my tokens on the floor
Players rushing for the door
Goodbye everybody - I’m now a ghost you know
Gotta get at the back of the line and face the truth
DM, oooo (any way the dice rolls)
I don’t want my guy to die
I sometimes wished you never rolled the dice at all

I see a little silhouetto of a man
Scaramouch, Scaramouch will you talk to Jedi Banjo,
Thunderous Spells and Lightning, Lazlo’s very frightening to me
Gygax Hey-ho, Gygax Hey-ho
Gygax Hey-ho, Gygax Hey-ho
Gygax Hey-ho, Magnifico

But I’m just a poor gamer, no bodies loves me
He’s just a poor gamer from a poor gaming family
Spare him his life from this Dungeon Monstrosity
Barely missed my saving throw – DM will you let me go
Godzilla! No - we will not let you go - let him go
Godzilla! No - we will not let you go - let me go
You missed your saving throw – let me go (never)
Missed your saving throw – let me go
Missed my saving throw – ooo
No, no, no, no, no, no, no -
Oh DM Suprema, DM Suprema, DM Suprema Another saving throw
Lori Martin has a treasure set aside for me
For me
For me

So you think you can turn to stone me and spit in my eye
So you think you can polymorph me and leave me to die
Oh DM Baby- can’t do this to me it’s crazy
Just gotta get out – just gotta get out this room right here

Ooh yeah, ooh yeah
Saving throw really matters
Anyone can see
Saving throw really matters – Figurine of the Cat’s Powers for me
Anyway the dice rolls

I will just say, even though I am competing and as with many, hope to win...I'm really happy to see all the responses Lazlo has gotten to this. Have enjoyed each one I've read and will admit that I'm thankful to Laz for posting the contest, as it was a pleasant break to try to parody a song.

Good luck to all.

I doubt I will be able to complete a whole song.
For years I have labored with a GenCon song, but my only lines fit TD perfectly.

To "the Most Wonderful Time of the Year"

Its the most wonderful time of the year
With dungeons for delvin'
and friends that are Elven
Adventure is near,
Its the most wonderful time of the year...

My friends that are musicians are unenlightened and think I am weird, so no help there.

so musically creative types feel free to be inspired.

So here is what I did. Again I preformed it and I'm not much of a guitarist but this is all in good fun. Hope it brightens somebody's day!

Great job to everyone on their parody songs. Thank you Laz for doing this. It has been a breath of cold air in Iowa.

Fantastic job Mike Coon on playing the guitar and singing your parody. Well done!
