Parody of Don't Dream it's Over by Crowded House

Post by Drassil » Fri Dec 29, 2017 4:39 pm

Nearly 14 years ago, I came up with the line 'Hey now, hey now, don't dream it's ogre'. Now here's a full set of lyrics, looking at the ogre encounters in three quests: Kelly's (Series 3), Sophia's (Series 6) and Dickon's (Series 4). Based on Don't Dream it's Over by Crowded House (1986). Lyrics, video

Series 3: seven in
Festus, he just lost out
Now to leave the level with a paper task
But the crayon's not there
Yes and that's got a cost
And poor Kelly's at the end of the road
With no way she can flee

Hey now, hey now
Don't scream: it's ogre
Hey now, hey now
A Grimwold's come in
We had, we had to draw a well between us
They knew we couldn't win

Now Sophia's the star
There's an ogre: a youth
He is younger and he's with Scaramonger and that's the truth
In the market today
There's a horn they should gain
Then they'll call Elita and she'll be uncouth

Hey now, hey now
We've seen this ogre
Hey now, hey now
And we'll need his name
They tried to hide a dragon caller from us
They have no shame

Now it's Dickon in quest
And he beat Level One
He's encountered a jester who used to push carts
Then he undid the lock
(Pillory, not the stocks)
Got to give the feeling of liberation and release

Hey now, hey now
We see an ogre
Hey now, hey now
It's what Motley feared
He's come, he's come
To kill the fool with meanness
And he's got a beard...
