If you can't guess the tune, then please don't boast about your IQ

Pterry the Magic Author

Pterry, the magic author, lives by his PC
And writes Discworld novels full of puns and comedy
All the AFPers love that Old Fart in a Hat
And buy figurines and fake degrees and other commercial tat, oh

CHORUS
Pterry, the magic author, lives by his PC
And writes Discworld novels full of puns and comedy
Pterry, the magic author, lives by his PC
And writes Discworld novels full of puns and comedy

Over the world he travels, though he shuns celebrity
He'd rather have a lager or murder a curry
At signings frozen peas are there to take the strain
From the millions of times, that Pterry signs his name, oh

CHORUS

Literature lives forever, but not so mortal men
A skeleton speaking in capitals will say "PUT DOWN YOUR PEN"
One grey night it'll happen, Pterry will write no more
They'll find the last Discworld book, lying by him on the floor

Our heads will bend in sorrow, but our grief it will soon fade
As we remember him at CCDE and hold a Maskerade
And as long as there is Usenet, and folks like you and me
So, Pterry will be celebrated, here on AFP, oh

CHORUS

Sorry it ends on a downer but so does the original
