The Aiel (Song)
Oh the Aiel went out on a chilly night,
he prayed to the moon to give him light
. He had many a-mile to go that night
before he reached the hold-o, hold-o, hold-o
he had many a mile to go that night
before he reached the hold-o....
He stopped when he reached a friendly roof
surrounded by ladies all aloof
who carried their spears and bucklers toof
and flashed their hand talk so-o, so-o, so-o
they carried their spears and bucklers toof
and they flashed their hand talk so-o...
"Come right on in" said a bold Maiden
"You're quick and you've got a nice strong chin...
(and we've plenty of room for the likes of him
even if he is a man-o, man-o, man-o)
Oh we've plenty of room for the likes of him
even if he is a man-o...
The man shook her hand and he said "Alright,
I'm tired and it's been a real long night,
and tomorrow I've got to fight fight fight
the cowerdly Shaido-o, do-o, do-do
tomorrow I must join that fight
against the ole shaido-o"
He entered the roof and standing there
a tall and lovely Maiden fair
she was naked except for her long red hair
and a ring that she wore on her toe-o, toe-o, toe-o
buck naked except for her long red hair
and that ring she wore on her toe-o....
His jaw dropped low and he heaved a sigh
He had a twinkle in his eye
For this Maiden only he would die
or do anything that she chose-o, chose-o, chose-o
He'd lay everything down and simply die
If that was what she chose-o...
"Poor boy," she laughed "You don't have a chance.
I'm wed to the spear and the bow and lance,
I'm not looking for some high romance,
so just pick-up and go-o, go-o, go-o
There's only one dance that I dance!
pick-up yourself and go-o..."
He looked right round and he thought a trick,
Grabbed the Maiden like some stick,
then he kissed her hard and quick
and said "Now I owe you toh-o, toh-o, toh-o."
His trembly voice was deep and thick
saying "Now I owe you toh-o..."
The Maidens laughed and held their sides,
They laughed until they nearly died!
Then they stripped him to his naked hide
and asked him for a song-o, song-o, song-o
he had nothing on except his hide
when they made him sing a song-o....
So if you go out on a chilly night,
and pray to the moon to give you light,
you had best go another mile that night,
and leave the girl's alone-o, lone-o, lone-o,
there's no understanding Far Dareis Mai
so keep going till you're home-oh......
