You Stop the Filkers

TTTO “Waltzing Matilda”

by Harlock

Once upon a time they held a con in Moscow town

In a smallish inn with ballrooms four.

Said a gamer to his friend, some time after two a.m.

“You stop the filkers and we’ll play some more.”

Chorus

LARPing at the same con was a group of vampires,

One of them a high-strung Toreador.

Said the vamp’s companions, “You understand these artsy types.

You stop the filkers and we’ll play some more.”

Chorus

Elsewhere in the hotel was a rugged ladies man

Hot-tubbing with his latest paramour.

Said she smiling sweetly, whisp’ring for his ear alone,

“You stop the filkers and we’ll play some more.”

Chorus

Meanwhile at the filksing, we were having so much fun,

Hearing songs we’d never heard before.

Said the next guitarist, “I’m tired of all this butting in,

You stop the doors up and we’ll play some more.”

Chorus
