Fair Cadiz

Fair Cadiz
by Lot Ramirez, Marcos de la Cruz, Magdalene van den Velde, and Quintin Lawless
Filked to Mangulay Boat Song

Chorus:
Heel yo Ho, boys! Let her go, boys!
Bring her head round into the weather
Heel yo Ho, boys! Let her go, boys!
Sailing homeward to fair Cadiz

See the white star midst the lashings
See the powder brought to cannon
Every sailor's cutlass flashing
For the glory of fair Cadiz

Chorus

What care we how white the scarf is?
What care we for the enemy's numbers?
Falling backwards, all the foemen
All retreating from fair Cadiz

Chorus

Mara's Song

Mara's Song
Lyrics and Music by Dame Eilidh Swann
© Copyright 2007 Cat C. Ellen

The son of the bard is weary tonight
As memory threatens to drown him
From boyhood to man, just overnight
As her life was stricken from him

CHORUS
Her scion, her heir, her only son
He will stand tall, he will move on
Her scion, her heir, her one and only son
He will remember her with honor

A tear wiped away as it threatens the page
As he writes the music that fills him
His hands take the quill and the staves once again
That she will ne'er be forgotten
CHORUS

By A Look And A Glance

By A Look And A Glance
A Ghazal penned in Honor of Her Majesty Fa'izeh al-Zarqa al-Malika al-Caid, for Her Festival this third of February, Anno Societatis XLI, being the common reckoning 2007

My heart has been stolen, been taken away, by a look and a glance.
A pine for Her dearly and all through the day, by a look and a glance.

The turn of Her heel and the curve of Her arm has captured my heart.
The grace of Her dance, just the start of Her charm, by a look and a glance.

Blessings (The Lyondemere Yule Song)

Blessings (The Lyondemere Yule Song)
By Dame Eilidh Swann

Some celebrate the return of the sun
As the great wheel turns in the sky
And so to you "Happy Solstice" I pray
And Blessings to you, and your family

Some celebrate the festival of lights
And the miracle of the oil that burned for eight days
And so to you "Happy Channakah" I pray
And Blessings to you, and your family

And some celebrate the birth of a King
In a manger in a stable spare
And so to you "Merry Christmas" I pray
And Blessings to you, and your family

Back, As I Remember

Back, As I Remember (or The Darachshire Song)
By Dame Eilidh Swann
© Copyright 2005 Cat C. Ellen

When I rest at night, my heart goes
To a place that I’ve seen in a far off day
When can I return? God only knows
But my memories will keep my tears at bay

For I live abroad and I travel much
And the songs of the road are all I have
To help me strive to keep in touch
Songs for the heart a balm and a salve

CHORUS
For you may see the hawk and the hare
The mouse and the cat lay down together
In the sunny lands and the crystal air

Raz in the Hold

To the tune of “Rosin the Beau”

Well I just finished swabbing the poop deck,
Now down to the hold I will go,
For I know that good whisky is waiting, in
A box with old Raz in the hold.

Take a drink with old Raz in the hold, me boys,
Take a drink with old Raz in the hold,
He’ll hand you a bottle of whisky, to
Keep secret his box in the hold.

When first our good Boatswain did find him,
She was taking account of her list,
She was opening all of the boxes, when
She finally came across his.

She drank with old Raz in the hold, me boys,

Heather's Hound

Heather's Hound
words and music by Magdalene van den Velde

From Ireland there came a man of noble family
Well-versed in courtly graces, and martial quality
There's one thing about him, though, that's led to his renown
For when he gets a sword in hand, he just won't put it down

Chorus:
Eogan! He really loves to play
Oh, he's not pleased unless he sees a hundred fights a day
His name is Eogan! He'll go a round or three
The überelf he calls himself and we all quite agree

With a rapier and a dagger he's the boldest in the land

Heart of Gold

Heart of Gold
Filk by Lot Ramirez
To the tune of "Good Ship Ragamuffin", Traditional sailing song

Chorus:
Oh, come my Northshield Brethren, come fight with me this day
Come bring out all your battle gear, and blow the foes away
We'll live again in legends, in stories ever told
And our names will ring, when the people sing of a griffin's heart of gold.

I do not fear for battle, I do not fear to die
For a Griffin's always strongest when he sounds a battle cry
We'l fight with honor foremost, with valor and with grace

Caidan Marching Song

Caidan Marching Song
words and music by Lot Ramirez

Chorus:
Hey, Ho, Hey
What foeman stands to bar the way?
Our steel they'll feel and the price they'll pay
For a crescent shall guide the way, the way
And a crescent shall guide the way

Onward to war we sing
Where battle cries and blades shall ring
To fill the field with our enemies screams
For a crescent shall guide the way, the way
And a crescent shall guide the way

CHORUS

Oh, our kings and queens are known
By ancient legends all their own
And on the field their worth is shown

La Rosa de Caid

La Rosa De Caid (the Rose of Caid)
words and music by Elizaveta Arievna Lebedeva

La rosa de Caid enflorese en la luna
La rosa de Caid, Reina Adrianna
Sus ojos luzios con las estreyas
Alegria de mi corason me date.

La rosa de Caid enflorese en la luna
La rosa de Caid, Reina Adrianna
Como los bilbilicos cantan
Su boz mi neshama entrate

Bendicho la reina con la paz de malakhim
Bendicho la corona con gracia y honrado

La rosa de Caid enflorese en la luna
La rosa de Caid, Reina Adrianna

Translation:
The rose of Caid blooms in the moonlight
