Dietrich's Love Song


Lyrics: Master John Inchingham            
Music: Whistling Gypsy - Trad



Chorus:
Ah de doo, ah de doo dah day
Ah de doo, ah de day-dee
He whistled and he sang 'til the murky moat rang
And he won the heart of the lady
Verses:
Evil Dietrich strode up to the gate
Of the castle of his lover Evzenie
He whistled and he sang 'til the murky moat rang
And he won the heart of the lady

Archers were posted 'long the castle wall
And a note was nailed to the gate-y
"The lady and her keep we captured early last week
"So wave farewell to your would-be mate-y"

Now evil Dietrich, he grew fell wroth
At the taunts of the captors of his lady
His great bow sang and the murky moat rang
With the screams of those he sent to Hades

He smashed through the gate and he drew forth his blade
Those marauders all cried out like babies
He slashed and he hacked and he hewed and he whacked
And he grinned like the Marquis de Sade-y

He sliced up the wounded and he diced up the dead
Disemboweled and dismembered and fileted-dee
Then he charged up the tower to his sweet lover's bower
For to free her and together escape-y

Evil Dietrich skipped back through the carnage
Arm in arm with his lover Evzenie
What was left of his foes wouldn't feed baby crows
So he torched the castle to impress his lady
Final Chorus:
Ah de doo, ah de doo dah day
Ah de doo, ah de day-dee
He whistled and he sang 'til the murky moat rang
And he won the heart,
      and the hand, and the head, and the feet,
      and the fingers, and the lungs, and the larynx,
      and at least twenty feet worth of intestine....
Yes he won the heart of a lady
