Don't Play the Faerie, Man!

(Tune of Don't Pay the Ferryman...by Chris DeBurgh)

 (Sorry, Chris, I feel not the least bit guilty for this one...it's not all
 that good anyway :) )

 It was late at night on the forest road
 Trailing all the sidhe on the run
 A lifetime spent preparing for the journey

 He is closer now and the search is on
 Pleading in the back of his mind
 Yes, there's that ragged hill and there's the sidhe goin in 'er.

 And when he tried to go down
 He heard a faerie-dog howl
 There were voices in the night (don't do it)
 Voices out of sight (don't do it)
 Too many men have failed before...!

 Whatever you do:
 Don't play the faerie, man!
 Don't dis a single gnome
 Don't play the faerie, man,
 Until you're sure that you can get back home!

 In the rolling mist when he goes inside
 Now there'll be no turning back
 Beware the drinks and toadstools that they offer!
 And then the lightning flashed and the thunder roared
 People calling out his name
 And dancing elves that drove him bout as mad as a hatter!

 And then a Fairy-man led him into his bed
 So he must dis him now (don't do it)
 He must dis him now (don't do it)
 And still that voice came from beyond--

 Whatever you do:
 Don't play the faerie, man!
 Don't dis a single gnome
 Don't play the faerie, man,
 Until you're sure that you can get back home!

 [And what else did he see, but dizzyingly beautiful fae, laughing and
 dancing all around him. But he couldn't touch them! And they were making
 all kinds of jingling and jangling sounds and all sorts of horrible noises!
 And he started praying to his dearest God that he could get the hell outta
 there...]*


 Yea-yea-yea-yea--
 Don't play the faerie, man!
 Don't dis a single gnome
 Don't play the faerie, man,
 Until you're sure that you can get back home!

 Don't play the faerie, man!
 Don't dis a single gnome
 Don't play the faerie, man,
 Until you're sure that you can get back home!

 Don't play the faerie, man!
 Don't dis a single gnome
 Don't play the faerie, man,
 Until you're sure that you can get back home!
 Don't play the fairy, man!

 *I have no clue what is really being said here in the original song...but
 this matches as best I can make it LOL...
