Prince of the Peeps
(To the tune of "Sweet Betsey From Pike")
by
Elsa Saxenkammer
(March, AS XXXVIII -- 2004)

Well way down in Darkwood they had them a feast
And all were invited the greatest and least
They danced and they sang and they had them a lark
Then it all went to blazes when day turned to dark

The baron he has him a favorite hue
We’ve all come to call it baronial blue
It’s cheery and warm and we like it a lot
T’was the color of gifts brought by Prince Geoffrey Scott.

And they’re peeps, peeps, bring on the peeps
They’re sweet fluffy snacks and for ages they’ll keeps
They come shaped like chickens and duckies and sheeps
And they all please our Geoffrey, the Prince of the Peeps.

Well Geoffrey he has him a fondness of sweets
He finds them more pleasing than cheeses or meats
For they’re not only tasty- a delightful snack
They’re perfect for launching an airborne attack

Well Geoffrey got bored as the evening got long
He didn’t want dancing, he didn’t want song
He didn’t want jenga he’d had quite his fill
So he broke out his peeps and went in for the kill

And they’re peeps, peeps, bring on the peeps
They’re sweet fluffy snacks and for ages they’ll keeps
They come shaped like chickens and duckies and sheeps
And they all please our Geoffrey, the Prince of the Peeps.

The good Baron Wilhelm was stunned at the sight
He was unprepared to see pink fluff in flight
He rallied himself and returned the assault
(Have I mentioned that this song is so not my fault?)

Now in the end Geoffrey beat Wilhelm it’s true
He cowered from flights of baronial blue
It’s said ever since that in terror he sleeps
From our fine Geoffrey Scott, mighty prince of the peeps

And they’re peeps, peeps, bring on the peeps
They’re sweet fluffy snacks and for ages they’ll keeps
They come shaped like chickens and duckies and sheeps
And they all please our Geoffrey, the Prince of the Peeps.


"This one is to commemorate the happenings of White Shield AS XXXVIII. It is sung to the tune of “Sweet Betsey From Pike” which is not period. Of course, neither are peeps." -- Elsa Saxenkammer
