In Praise of Geoffrey Scott

Colin MacLear
Ducal Prize Tournament, September, AS XXXV (2000)

(To the tune of "Ain't Misbehaving")

No one to fight with, left all alone
Its half-past midnight, but someday Iíll win a throne
Iím still in armor, my fighting day isnít through

Iíll fight anybody, newbie or knight
Bruised, battered, or bloody-I just wanna fight
Iím still in armor, my fighting day isnít through

Dane axe or pike
Glaive with buttspike
One or a pair
What do I care?
Iíve made up two of every kind (believe me)
A hundred five battles, my very own war
The army skedaddles-Come back! Fight some more!
Iím still in armor, my fighting day isnít through.


This is from Colin's CD and accompanying booklet "Bardic Fire", which contains pieces that Colin created and performed during his tenure as Bard of the West.
