Cute Song from "Redwall: Doomwyte"


Hi everyone!
I'm very sorry for not posting in a while: it's been really busy around here and I haven't found the time. :( Anyway, I like reading the "Redwall" series by Brian Jacques, a British writer in England. They're really cute books, and there's 20 some in the series. Anyway, I've been reading his latest one, Doomwyte. It's really good, but for those of you who may want to read it...I won't spoil the fun. :)
I found this really cute song in the book, and thought that I'd share it with you:

"Can I come a-courtin', sir,
an' can I woo yore daughter?
Aye ye can try as others have,
but nobeast's ever caught her.
Dance around an' tap tap tap,
d'ye think ye stand a chance?
Many a swain has lost his heart,
to a pretty maid at the dance.
Round the floor now hop hop hop
whirl her round just like a top!

Swing her high but hold her light,
an' don't ye try to kiss her,
four big beasts are watchin' you,
an' she's their little sister.
Keep on dancin' don't you dare stop,
wot a fix yore in, sir.
Yonder stands her stout old ma,
a-twirlin' a rollin' pin, sir.

Skip'n'jump now one two three,
through the window an' yore free!"


I thought it was cute! I told my dad that it sounded like him. :) I don't know the tune or anything, but it's supposed to be a fast song. (Redwall is a place full of mice/hares/moles/shrews/squirrles and so on, so that explains the "beast" part. :)

Thanks for reading!

In Christ,

I recently read Doomwyte. I thought it was the second best Redwall book, after Martin the Warrior. It was less repetitive anyway. Redwall books are a good read when you don't feel like burning too many braincells trying to figure out the plot.

I agree. :) I told my mom that the Redwall series are some real good books for a cold, rainy afternoon.

Thanks for stopping by!

I enjoyed reading the Redwall books. I read quite a few, I believe it was about a dozen. I must say that they did help me to learn to read more quickly because I wanted to know what would happen next. :) I read them in chronological order, which they don't recommend, but I liked it that way so that I could keep everyone straight. :)

It was wonderful to get to meet you at the Father & Daughter Retreat! You were such a delight to be around. Lord willing, we will be able to meet again!

I hope that you had a blessed Resurrection Sunday!

Joyfully in Christ,

That's okay...it happens! :)

Emily~
How good to hear from you! I greatly enjoyed meeting you too, and I hope that we'll both be able to again next year! :)
I agree about the Redwall books: I read much faster now! I would sit there and near the end of every chapter: "Alright, I'll stop here. That's it! I'm stopping here!" A minute or two later..."Oh oh! What WAS that?! What's going to happen now? Ooooh...just one more chapter...and THEN I'll quit!"

Yup. That's the way it goes. :)
