Hey-ho folks, just finished this filk on Gomez's Whippin' Piccadilly, and thought I'd better post it and see what you think. Enjoy...

Whippin' Ankh-Morpork

Once upon a time, not too long ago
I took a day out in Ankh-Morpork
My favourite town
There's too much to visit in this place
Played Cripple Mr Onion, fell into the UU
Barged my way to the Librar
With the orang-utan in
There's some pretty strange people in this place
I remember seeing someone wearing a dress
Running like a lunatic
He was pretty down
There's too many dangers in this place
Well the Alchemists Guild got razed to the ground
Their attempts don't seem to do much but fail
So now Death's in town
There's too many guilds in this place
We like Ankh-Morkpork, and the people there
We like Ankh-Morpork, and the folk it scares
Finally made my way, back to the plains
Rolling into Lancre tonight
And it's loam all the way
Time's running out pretty quick
So try and make my way we're stopped by some bandits
We're whippin' Ankh-Morkpork tonight
We're all help up
"It's your money or your life"
We hate Ankh-Morpork, and the people there
We hate Ankh-Morpork, and it just ain't fair
