Parody of Twist in My Sobriety by Tanita Tikaram

Post by Drassil » Sun Dec 08, 2019 4:16 pm

I believe I've now written over 200 of these Knightmare song parodies.

This one is based on the longer version of Twist in My Sobriety by Tanita Tikaram (1988). I've included links to relevant (official) clips where possible. Official audio; lyrics via Google

[Series 4 Quest 1]
All the children need travelling shoes
For adventuring here
Three remain; there's one they choose
To be the dungeoneer
I see you walk, child
To be the dungeoneer

In the clearing where you pause for now
Victory's miles away
I like to think you will not be killed
If you respect what I say
I have a riddle
And also it's my first day

Helen, my name is Brother Mace
Were a thousand ships launched by your face?
Here a tavern monk is what I be
We are sworn to insobriety
We are sworn to insobriety

[Series 4 Quest 6]
Meeting Dickon, it went very stale
The Etruscan brandy gave me scales
[Series 4 Quest 8]
Late in Series 4 my cards were free
Tim'd smile: I raised a three

[Series 5 Quest 1]
I don't care about the different woods
Dunkley, Wolfglade: same to me
On the logs we play our game
If I win then there's no shame

Look at Sly, I'll defy his scams
Look I've won, I've drawn Rex from my hand
Come on, Hands and have a drink with me
I am sworn to insobriety
I am sworn to insobriety
I am sworn to insobriety

[Now to an earlier quest in which a card game is mentioned: Series 3 Quest 6.]
Series 3, the year before, yeah
Time to free a maid, a maid, a maid
Monster's stomach
Soft and porky
You pig out 'til you feel the egg
Pig out 'til you feel the egg

Ross's team, they reached the wizard
Where they answered well
"Just like in the card game," he said
He gave to them a spell
He gave them a spell

Look it's Ross, Gavin, Shahzad, Fu
Look they need to get through Level 2
Though the spell they didn't get was FREE
They used TWIST and got to Level 3
They used TWIST and got to Level 3

Look McGrew is an advantage
Look ahead: there's Mogdred on the bridge
Then Morghanna and her evil glee
Then dismissed they were from Level 3
Then dismissed they were from Level 3
Then dismissed they were from Level 3
