re: Black Velvet Band with new lyrics

Lyrics: https://www.dropbox.com/s/kk49dhra6tqiyrn/The%20Pie%20Thief%20or%20Dont%20Bake%20a%20Gourd%20Lurker%20%28Black%20Velvet%20Band%29.docx?dl=0

The Pie Thief or Don’t Bake a Gourd Lurker
Music: Black Velvet Band
Lyrics by Hannariel/Brioney

As I was strolling one morning
A very strange sight did I spy.
An odd-looking thief running down the street
With a gourd lurker stuffed in a pie.

Well, the thief was dressed like a goblin
But wide as a dwarf I could see.
I could tell he was dressed to camouflage
His true personality.

The gourd lurker it was a squawkin’.
Seems it hadn’t been half baked yet.
The noise that it made you could tell at once
That it was extremely upset.

Well the thief ran down a side alley.
The gourd lurker popped up his head;
Started in on the runner’s hands and face
Pecking at the thief as he fled.

The burglar got really flustered
And tripped over his own bare feet.
Brought down by an outraged gourd lurker
He sprawled on the cobble stone street.


The truth was quickly uncovered
A hobbit in dwarf-goblin suit.
A pie thief if found in the shire
Is of the highest disrepute.

There are lessons to this story
One is a gourd lurker’s a pet.
The other is a pie thief in the shire
Makes news in the local Gazette.

re: Black Velvet Band with new lyrics

I'm glad you found it entertaining. I had a fun time writing it. It was kind of weird how this one came to me. I had traveled to Ocracoke Island, NC over the Halloween week-end and attended a pirate jamboree. The troubadours (or Motley Tone pirates) sang The Black Velvet Band. I remember the Fluffy Unicorns had that in their repertoire and I thought - hey we don't have the lyrics of this song...When I got home I realized the music was shorter than the original traditional song. So I looked and looked but couldn't find a midi file that was the right length. I didn't want to mess with lengthening it for now. I thought I need new lyrics for the short version instead. Then the other morning a brain storm hit at 4 in the morning and I got up out of bed to write it down. Did a few minor revisions, but pretty much finished it in about 1/2 hour. Sometimes inspiration strikes like that.
