In a filking mood this afternoon...

TTTO Rocket RIde (Tom Smith, lyrics and MP3 at http://www.tomsmithonline.com/lyrics/rocketride.htm)

Nothing to eat, nothing to trade
Nothing worth playing that we haven't played
There's no alternative, I'm afraid -
Come on, everybody, on a chocolate raid

How many denim-coated Pratchett fans
Does it take to pull off a coup?
How many chocolates have slipped through our hands
Despite all that we tried to do?
How many newbies have been suff'ring sans
Confections, even though they were new?
We need some people with action plans,
And we're the ones to see 'em through

I want a pile of weapons from a Scorpion Pit
Some shiny stuff from an Assassin's kit
A magical sword, a two-handed bow
A Smith and Wesson, and we're set to go...

Why don't we throw in a gas grenade
A twelve inch dagger with a rusty blade
Some guns and ammo and we've got it made -
Come on, everybody, on a chocolate raid
Come on, everybody, on a chocolate raid
