I've only done one filk before, and that was a tune no-one had any hope of knowing. This time they do, but I've only filked a chorus. Specifically, the second chorus of Tóg É Go Bog É by Kíla:

Post it to Usenet
It's not for the sane
Post it to Usenet
Maybe 'twill bring you fame [1]
Post it to Usenet
It's not for the sane
Post it to Usenet
Let them think and exercise their brain [2]
Post it to Usenet
It's not for the sane
Post it to Usenet
And they'll send you a hug each day [3]
Post it to Usenet
It's not for the sane
Post it to Usenet
But please don't entice any flame [4]

[1] Original: Na bí ag troid leat féin
[2] Original: Lig don solas teacht isteach i do shaol
[3] Original: Tiocfaidh sé nuair a thagann sé
[4] Original: Tochaill go doimhin ionat féin
[5] whose sense of humour, having looked up the translations on the web years ago, is much obliged by the thought of an afpduel with "Ón Taobh Tuathail Amach" playing in the background: "Na bí ag troid liom anois / No ní do namhaid mé / Tuigfidh tú sa deireadh thiar thall nach do namhaid mé" - ideal for the purpose, no?
