you can has story

A filk three years in the making

Oh hey! Had the source song come up for this one on Shuffle today, realized I never posted it, and further realized that the conversation which started the whole thing off (friends-locked) is three years old yesterday. So, um, happy birthday to something?

You would seriously not believe how tough this song is to rewrite. I managed to hit most of the meter and most of the rhymes, though. Had to do a little final polishing work tonight, and there are still a few rough spots.

SAVE A HORSE (Ride a Dragon)
TTTO Big & Rich's "Save A Horse (Ride a Cowboy)"

Well, he rides into my cave
Armored in shiny metal pants
Fry his lance with a glance
All these princes, and not enough romance
Now when someone with a shiny crown comes round
I want to see a pretty gown
Cut way down -- I'm sick of all these one-knight stands.
