So it's Hogswatch Eve - it must be time to sing The Fairytale Of Ankh-Morpork
It was Hogswatch Eve mate In the Tanty Dan'l Trooper says to me: won't see a better one And then I sang this song 'Bout the old Canting Crew And that time when all their Hogswatch dreams came true... For they're not lucky ones A whiff of Foul Ole Ron An' Hogswatch feelings Sink in the muddy Ankh So Happy Hogswatch To little Gaspode I can see some marrow bone A doggie's dream come true.
They got pies big as thighs They got rivers of gold But the wind goes right through you It´s no place for the old When you first took his paw on a cold Hogswatch Eve You promised that Hide Park was waiting for him He was hungry - you felt petty In Ankh-Morpork city when the band finished playing they yelled out for more Old Tom wasn't ringing all the drunks they were singing We pissed in a corner Then ran through the night.
And the boys from the AMPD choir were singing Make My Day And the bells were ringing out for Hogswatch day.
You´re a bum you´re a troll You´re an old mutt from hell Lying there almost dead on a heap on that bed You scumbag you maggot You cheap lousy faggot Happy Hogswatch your arse I pray gods it´s our last.
And the boys from the AMPD choir's still singing Make My Day And the bells were ringing out For Hogswatch day.
I could have been someone Well so could anyone You took my dreams from me When I first found you I kept them with me mate I put them with my own Can´t make it out alone I´ve built my dreams around you
And the boys of the AMPD choir's still singing Make My Day And the bells are ringing out For Hogswatch day.
