THE BIRTHDAY DIRGE
tune: "Volga Boatmen"

Happy Birthday! *thud* Happy Birthday!*thud*
1. Now you've aged another year
Now you know that Death is near
Happy Birthday! *thud* Happy Birthday! *thud*

2. Death, destruction, and despair
People dying everywhere

3. Typhoid, plague and polio
Coffins lined up in a row

4. When you've reached the age you are
Your demise cannot be far

Other Common Verses:

5. Pestilence has struck your town
You yourself feel quite run-down

6. Birthdays come but once a year
Marking time as Death draws near

The Viking/Barbarian Verses:

7. Burn the castle and storm the keep
Kill the women, but save the sheep

8. Burn, then rape by firelight
Add _romance_ to life tonight

9. May the candles on your cake
Burn like cities in your wake.

10. They stole your sword, your gold, your house
Took your sheep but not your spouse

11. This one lesson you must learn
First you pillage, then you burn

12. While you eat your birthday stew
We will loot the town for you,

The SCA Verses:

13. We brought linen, white as cloud
Now we'll sit and sew your shroud

14. Your servants steal, your wife's untrue
Your children plot to murder you

Other Verses:

15. Just be glad the friends you've got
Haven't found out you-know-what

16. It's your birthday never fear
You'll be dead this time next year

17. Now another year has passed
Don't look now they're gaining fast!

17a. So far Death you have bypassed
Don't look back, he's gaining fast

18. You must marry very soon
Baby's due the next full moon

19. When you've reached this age you know
That the mind is first to go

Ham Yoyo? I'm certain I haven't seen that one before! http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/biggrin.gif Howdy, fellow A-wing terrorist in his thirties...

So why do we old guys play video games? *Sigh* Well, for me it started when I was a little squirt in the front row of the movie theater, watching Star Wars come to life. I decided then that I wanted to be a starfighter pilot and fight bad guys in outer space.

Only problem? Living in the real world, with no bad guys to kill, and a fear of flying which would prevent me from trying to even get off the ground. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/biggrin.gif

When I was a kid, I had no interest in the wireframe graphics videogames they had in the parlors (home systems sucked even worse!) Until, that is, the first Star Wars game came out...finally, I could fly an X-wing and blow up the Death Star. That one videogame was the extent of my childhood videogame career.

Years later, as an adult, I picked up my next videogame, a flight simulation for the N64 called Pilot Wings. When Rogue Squadron came out for the same console system, my buying it was a foregone conclusion. Same story with Episode One: Racer and Battle for Naboo. When I got a computer, I got the latest version PC simulation (X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter) that my RAM could support...and when I upgrade, you can bet I'll get XWA at the same time.

So, you see...it isn't about playing videogames. It's about flying over somewhere and smacking TIEs out of my sky, that's all. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/smile.gif
