The Lyrics

This one is about Terry Pratchett's incompetent wizard Rincewind - I've just finished reading "Interesting Times" and had to write something... If you've never read any of Pratchett's Discworld books, then go out and buy one NOW! They are simply THE best comic fantasy around at the moment - no exceptions..
Ever since I found the Discworld
It's held me in its thrall
From "Small Gods" to "Soul Music"
I must have read them all.
There's the most inept wizard
Can't manage a fireball
That scaredy-cat Rincewind
Sure can't spell at all!

His magic skill is zero
Or maybe less than that
Don't want to play the hero
Instead he plays the prat
He runs by inclination
From any bar-room brawl
That scaredy-cat Rincewind
Sure can't spell at all!

He's a real crap wizzard
He's never cast a spell
A real crap wizzard
No he can't even spell

'Why does he think he's magic? I don't know!
What makes him so crap?'

At the Unseen University,
He just don't belong
His hat says he's a "Wizzard"
He even spells THAT wrong
He always seems to get away
From every pratfall
That scaredy-cat Rincewind
Sure can't spell at all!

I thought I saw
A multi-legged thing
'Cause Twoflower gave
The Luggage box to him.

Even when there's peril
He'll just about survive
His reflexes tell him to run
And he'll get out alive
He can run like wind and lightning
Never seen him crawl...
That scaredy-cat Rincewind
Sure can't spell at all!

Great Parody. May anyone who doesn't read the discworld be books be deported to the counterweight continent, be forced to live in interesting times, get sent back to discworld to spend a day in a small room with Foul Ole Ron and Nobby Nobbs and then be forced to wrestle with Detritus. Ok maybe thats a little harsh and no one who hasnt read the books will know what i'm talking about but anyway they're really good.
