Liner Notes

Part of the reason I've been less motivated to create music this year on FAWM is my new addiction - I bought an XBOX video game system and started playing this ridiculous roleplaying game called Skyrim. This song is inspired by and also parodying the game, the melody is loosely based on the song "Ragnar the Red" for those who are familiar with the game.

Apologies for the poor sound quality, I just played this in front of my laptop to quickly get down the idea before going to bed and at one point I can hear clipping from being too close / too loud for the little laptop microphone.

Lyrics

I haven’t been laid in over 6 months
Well, to be honest, I’ve never had sex
But I found a way to make everything right
In a land of magic and might

I’ve bested the bandits, I’ve saved the girl
I’ve cleared many dungeons of fearsome foes
Only one more mission and I’ll free the land
To win my prize for the night

I want to be Thane of Hjaalmarch
Then all will know my name
If I become Thane of Hjaalmarch
This dreary life will never be the same

I’ve fought dragons and vampires, hell hounds too
All will succumb to my wrath
I’m stalwart and brave, never fearing to fight
The bards sing songs of my deeds

I spoke to the Jarl, the lord of the land
For quests to earn this title grand
One more task and I’m done for the night
Before I make love to my hand
