There've been filking discussions. Mole and the afPhantom actually have filking titles. I haven't. I could sulk, or i could go "ha, petty newcomers, i shall always be better'n you lot" or, i could just write something and see what happens....

It's ten to eleven by GMT
And i work but i don't really care
And i'd love to leave this world and stroll through the Discworld
And be with the characters there
'cause i really could do with some comedy
Of humans and dwarfs and of trolls
And that down to earth feel where the people seem real
With no stereotypical roles

La la la, de de da
La la, de de da da da

Chorus:
Write us a book, Mr Pratchettman
Bravo, again, encore
'Cause we've all chewed our way through your other ones
And we've sure got the taste for some more

Could Granny keep everyone terrified?
And could Nanny make everyone smile?
And could Carrot or Vimes get us through the rough times
While we leave work behind for a while?
There was Brutha who altered a way of life
With a tortoise that fell from on high
And made all the Gods chicken with one well placed kickin'
That got their heads of the sky

Oh, la la la, de de da
La la, de de da da da

Now Detritus is pretty invuln'rable
A copper who can't feel the knife
His change was due solely to Wood that was Holy
And landing a twenty ton wife
And the the beggars are talking in gibberish
As they boil up old boots in a tin
They're all out of luck man, except for the Duck Man
And restaurants won't let him in

Chorus
Write us a book, Mr Pratchettman
Bravo, again, encore
'Cause we've all chewed our way through your other ones
And we've sure got the taste for some more

It's a while since you carpéd our jugulars
It's a long time since anything new
And i'm telling you brother, that i need another
Or i don't know how i'll get through
And Waterstones won't tell me anything
I'm sure they think i'm just a loon
But for more stuff that funny i'll pay out my money
So please write another one soon

Oh, la la la, de de da
La la, de de da da da

Chorus
Write us a book, Mr Pratchettman
Bravo, again, encore
'Cause we've all chewed our way through your other ones
And we've sure got the taste for some more

:fin

Well?
