7336Re: [SCA_BARDS] My latest doggerel (bawdy, with introduction, comments sought)
- Jun 1, 2007I would say this classifies as bawdy...to those "in the know" (ie:
adults) the lines are pretty explicit, but to kids it doesn't make
much sense. I would think it'd be safe enough if young-un's are about.
I'm reminded of a (forgive me for this reference) line I've heard in
the intro for a number of renaissance faire shows..."Parents, if your
kids get these jokes, it's not our fault!". Similarly, a side
comment after a racy remark by a performer: "Kids, ask your parents
to explain that one later".
I love this piece in and of itself, can easily see how this could be
a good group-participation thing with at least the tan-a-ra, if not
the chorus as well.
I'm a bit confused by the first verse, however, doesn't quite seem to
fit the rest. All the other verses seem to be about the woman, but
that first verse doesn't seem to refer to her at all? Not knowing
the inspiring story, did I miss something?
Almost cries out for some knight/fencer/archer themed lines, how
about these (can't believe I'm trying to write lyrics...it's not what I do)
When she saw the knight's big lance
She gave him a second chance
She gave the archer a lark
To see if he'd hit the mark
Saw the fencer's long bright blade
So she took him to the glade
