Hello, everyone. I'm Bradypus. I've been here for quite a few months now - you'll usually find me in the Song Challenge threads. (well worth checking if you haven't found them already) I play piano accordion and autoharp, just for fun usually.

Did I hear that someone wanted a song about Cluny? Try this, and if you like it, I'll have a Talisker

Cluny the Scourge

My name is Cluny, and I'm a rat
The toughest rat of all
A sea rat, a bilge rat,
Who holds them all in thrall
I live hard, I fight hard
Whenever I've the urge
So hear my name, and shake with fear
Cluny, Cluny the Scourge

Beware of Cluny, the evil rat
With jagged teeth and fur
A one-eyed rat, a long-tailed rat
Tail sharper than a spur
My brain's sharp, my heart's hard
I rage beneath the sky
So listen close to what I say
Obey, obey or die

My name is Cluny, the God of War
I've fought ferret and pike
An army lies at my command
I do whate'er I like
There's no love lost, there's only fear
I drive them to the verge
Sharp brain, sharp tail, sharp words, sharp wit
Cluny, Cluny the Scourge

Beware of Cluny, the God of War
Tremble when he comes
Let fear bite sharp and wit be flat
When you hear Cluny's drums
A batwing cloak, a plumed, horned helm
The pipes will sound a dirge
Beware, beware for Cluny comes
Cluny, Cluny the Scourge
