FFFFF I L K K fffff i l eeeee F I L K K f i l e FFFF I L KK ffff i l eeee F I L K K f i l e F I LLLLLL K K f i llllll eeeee ONE ---------------------------------------------------------------- The first compilation of filksongs collected from the FILK Echo and provided for download via the auspices of Kay Shapero, moder- ator of same. Publication date, May 1990. All copyrights belong to the writers. FILKfile will appear at irregular intervals of a month or more, depending on how many songs appear on the echo. I'm doing this first one in vanilla ascii with the bare minimum of formatting so as not to create problems for anyone reading it directly off the system. If folks would like me to provide margins and form feeds between pages, please let me know. ---------------------------------------------------------------- A CHRISTMAS CAROL by Charlie Kellner (to the tune of "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer") There's Nemorth and Selgrith and Lamanth and Wirenth, Caylith and Prideth and Ludeth and Ralenth, But do you recall... the most famous dragon of all? Ramoth the golden dragon had a very shiny tail, And if you ever saw it, you would love each golden scale. None of the other dragons ever let her play their games, They didn't want poor Ramoth chasing thread and breathing flames. Then one fateful Threadfall eve, Lessa came to say, "Ramoth with your tail so bright, won't you guide the weyrs in flight?" Then how the dragons loved her, as they shouted out in glee, "Ramoth the golden dragon, you went back in history!" Words copyright Charlie Kellner, Dec 1981 ***** A FILKER'S NIGHTMARE by Rich Kabakjian (tune: "That Old Time Religion") Gimme that old "Banned From Argo" Gimme that old "Banned From Argo" Gimme that old "Banned From Argo" It's long enough for me. We will sing of "Caves of Steel" Even though we think it's real- ly long and has no mass appeal But it's good enough for me. We will sing "Horsetamer's Daughter" 'Though we think we really oughter pick a filk that is much shorter But it's good enough for me. If you'd like to pass the Tully, can we sing of "Young Man Mulli- gan"? It makes the senses dull-y But it's good enough for me. Words copyright Rich Kabakjian, 1989 ***** A SONG FOR GROSSED OUT FILKFEN by Kay Shapero (tune: "When Johnny Comes Marching Home") (Doom, doom, doom, doom..... Doom, doom, doom, doom.....) The filksing's getting ose again (Oh dread! Oh dread!) The filksing's getting ose again (Oh dread! Oh dread!) The piles of bodies have stained the floor With thirty-nine separate shades of gore And the fans are running out of the room to urp.... (Yuck, yuck, yuck, yuck...)
