LyricsEdit

The following text is transcluded from Transcript:Ballad of the Basilisk.

T'was on a haughty winter, we w're bitten with frost
And none would dare venture where many were lost
V sailed his mighty longship to the island of stone
Where the king of the serpents had made it his home

The storm, it was a-ragin', waves, broke on the deck
The bell rang with a tolling to warn of the wreck
But naught could deter him from the fate of his quest
Winds tore through the main sail, yet onward he pressed

Sing praise to our hero
And remember with cheer (Hey!)
When V smote the basilisk
And freed us from fear

He... Ro... V... Smote... Praise... Cheer... Freed us from fear!

V landed near the cavern, the tale of the wind
He bellowed to the beast there and it crawled to him
This bane of the Fremennik with a crown on its head
Strolled top from the hollow, its eyes burning red

All those who looked upon it were doomed by its gaze
Their hearts a cold granite, their veins a stone maze
The maw of the mighty serpent gaped wide like a gate
A wail shook the mountains and echoed its hate

Sing praise to our hero
And remember with cheer (Hey!)
When V smote the basilisk
And freed us from fear

He... Ro... V... Smote... Praise... Cheer... Freed us from fear!

Fangs dripping with venom rushed in for the kill
But V flexed his kiteshield and stopped the beast still
The shield had been polished with hot rocks and oil
At the sight of its likeness it retched and recoiled

Blood streamed from its eyes and fledged statues like rain
With a swing of V's halberd the serpent was slain
Its pelt, he made a cape and some teeth into horns
Great monster died that night and a hero was born!

Sing praise to our hero
And remember with cheer (Hey!)
When V smote the basilisk
And freed us from fear

Sing praise to our hero
And remember with cheer (Hey!)
When V smote the basilisk
And freed us from fear

He... Ro... V... Smote... Praise... Cheer... Freed us from fear!
