Ynys Fawrian Knights

I wrote this rude song about knights to the tune of the Beach Boys’ California Girls.¬† In those days I lived in Politarchopolis, so sending all the knights to Ynys Fawr made perfect sense. Now that I’m actually living in that distant barony I’m glad my advice was never taken. We have a couple of knights here, but they’re mostly OK, really.

Well, Stormhold knights are fast, they do their thinking with their sticks
And Anealan knights, with their quirky ways, they add some flavour to the mix
The Innilgarder whitebelts really love to have a fight
And the Rowan-Knights, with their household ties, they’ll hardly ever hit you light

I wish they all could be Ynys Fawrian
I wish they all could be Ynys Fawrian
I wish they all could be Ynys Fawrian
Knights…

Polit has all those chefs and so their knights all get so wide
River Haven knights, beneath the blazing sun, prefer to just go home and hide
I’ve been all round this Kingdom and I’ve met all kinds of knights
And they’d all be improved if they’d just make a move to down among the southern lights

I wish they all could be Ynys Fawrian
I wish they all could be Ynys Fawrian
I wish they all could be Ynys Fawrian
Knights…
