Okay, here it is:

The Wizzard

Oh I'm just a poor wizzard, though my stories have been told
I have run off from adventure seeking promises of boredom
Such are promises
I just want rest
But I find myself still fleeing, being followed by my chest

When I left the University I had no idea at all
In the company of Twoflower, I'd be halfway across the Discworld
Running scared
Laying low
But still finding myself in places only psychotic heroes go
Looking for some way to escape the whole show

I'm going to die!
I'm going to die, die, die, d-die!
I'm going to die!
I'm going to die, die, die, d-die, d-d-d-d-die!

Asking only peace and quiet I return to Ankh Morpork
But I just get offered
To save the Disc from the Red Star and sourcery
I have to say
My immediate reaction is always to run away
(La la la la la la la la la)

I'm going to die!
I'm going to die, die, die, d-die!
I'm going to die!
I'm going to die, die, die, d-die, d-d-d-d-die!

Now I'm laying out my winter robes, I know it won't last long
I'm back at home
Where the Ankh-Morpork winters may be freezing me
Freezing me
I'm back at home

In an office sits a wizzard, now a geographer by trade
And on his shelves are reminders of his journey to Tezumen,
And FourEcks and the Empire and associated pain
So when he hears "We need a hero", you can bet he won't remain

I'm going to die!
I'm going to die, die, die, d-die!
I'm going to die!
I'm going to die, die, die, d-die, d-d-d-d-die!
I'm going to die, die, die, d-die!
I'm going to die!
I'm going to die, die, die, d-die, d-d-d-d-die!
I'm going to die, die, die, d-die!
I'm going to die!
etc.

Dave, who will return
