The Beatles & The RPGA

I'm posting this on Saturday, mainly because I know my horrible lyrics-writing will be subjected to that much less scrutiny. This started out over at theRPGsite, where various people were changing Beatles lyrics to RPG-related ones (with mixed success). I'm not a total hater of the Forgotten Realms by any means, but its pretty well-established I was bummed when the RPGA dumped Greyhawk. So, with without further ado, to the tune of "Yesterday", may I present:


RPGA

RPGA,
All our PCs were from Oerth they say,
Now it looks as though they'll Faerun stay,
Oh, how could you, RPGA?

Suddenly,
We no longer have the world of Gary,
There's an emo drow that's bothering me,
Oh, RPGA switched suddenly.

Why they
Had to switch I don't know, but I won't play.
I said,
Well so long, now I've left RPGA.

RPGA,
I liked the idea of living play,
Now Elminster just says "ye" all day,
Oh, damn your hide, RPGA.

Why they
Had to switch I don't know, but I won't play.
I said,
Well so long, now I've left RPGA.

RPGA,
My Greyhawk wizards were so Grade-A,
Now I think they have to be from Thay,
Oh we're so done, RPGA.

Mm-mm-mm-mm-mm-mm-mm.

Brilliant. I could hear it in my head.

You need to record yourself singing this and post it.

Alas, I fear my singing would necessitate a Fear check. Plus, I've juat about completely lost my voice this weekend! :)

Excellent meter there, Zach. Now for an MP3?

Er...I'll leave that to the pros, Rob. :)
