Lyrics Edit

Leslac:

The warrior and the sorceress rode into Viden-town

For they had heard of evil there and meant to bring it down 

An overlord with iron hand who ruled his folk with fear -- 


Tarma:

Bartender, shut that minstrel up and bring another beer. 


Leslac:

The warrior and the sorceress went searching high and low 


Tarma:

That isn’t true, I tell you, and I think that I should know! 


Leslac:

They meant to find the tyrant who’d betrayed his people’s trust 

And bring the monster’s power and pride to tumble in the dust. 

They searched through all the town to find and bring him to defeat. 


Tarma:

Like Hell! What we were looking for was wine and bread and meat! 


Leslac:

They found him in the tavern and they challenged him to fight. 


Tarma:

We found him holding up the bar, drunk as a pig, that night. 


Leslac:

The tyrant laughed and mocked at them, with vile words and base. 


Tarma:

He tripped on Warrl’s tail, then took exception to my face. 


Leslac:

The warrior was too wise for him; his blade clove only air! 


Tarma:

He swung, I ducked, he lunged -- and then he tripped over a chair. 


Leslac:

With but a single blow the warrior brought him to his doom! 


Tarma:

About that time he turned around -- I got him with a broom. 


Leslac:

And in a breath the deed was done! The tyrant-lord lay dead! 


Tarma:

I didn’t mean for him to hit the fire iron with his head! 


Leslac:

The wife that he had kept shut up they freed and set on high 

And Viden-town beneath her hand contentedly did lie. 


Tarma:

I went to find his next-of-kin and to the girl confess -- 

"Your husband wasn’t much before, but now he’s rather less --" 


"He was a drunken sot, and I’ll be better off," she said. 

"And while I can’t admit it, I’m not sorry that he’s dead. 

So here’s a little something -- but you’d best be on your way -- 

I’ll claim it was an accident if you’ll just leave today." 


Leslac:

In triumph out of Viden-town the partners rode again 

To find another tyrant and to clean him from his den -- 

The scourge of evil and the answer to a desperate prayer! 


Tarma:

Don’t you believe a word of it -- I know, ‘cause I was there!
