At the Old Songs Festival during the Saturday night concert, John Roberts sang a really wonderful filk of "Barretts Privateers" about the Ring of the Niebelungs. It was along the same lines of the "3 Minute Hamlet". I thought he said it was by the Berrymans. I've been looking around to see if there are any online lyrics for it, but there don't seem to be.
The only bits I remember at the moment are:
"when the Valkyries come with their steel brassieres
and the voice of Siegfried fills your ears"
"So here I sit in the 23rd tier"
Anyone know it?
