One of you clever singing types might be able to make a drinking song out of this, (I hope!)

Cohen's Return (ttto The Wild Rover)

I've been a wild hero for many a year
And I've spent all my money on bright leather gear.
But now I'm returning, a bride by my side
To prove to you all that I haven't yet died!

And it's no nay never, no nay never no more
Will I roam by the Ramtops or Circle Sea shore.

We'll go to Ankh-Morpork and live in the Shades
And raise kiddies and hell before memory fades.
I'll quaff with the dwarves and I'll smoke with the trolls
And I'll steal from the guilds while avoiding the gnolls.

And it's no nay never, no nay never no more
Will I roam by the Ramtops or Circle Sea shore.

We're starting a hair shop, with top clientele
Assassins and beggars and seamstresses swell.
Streaks from Sto Helit, styles from old Klatch
And pyramid cuts that you'll find hard to match.

And it's no nay never, no nay never no more
Will I roam by the Ramtops or Circle Sea shore.

I'll miss all the fighting and roistering round
And sneaking round temples with never a sound.
I'll miss Teach's learning and the Silver Horde's grit
But content for a while by my hearth I will sit.

And it's no nay never, no nay never no more
Will I roam by the Ramtops or the Circle Sea shore.

John
