The Kender Marching Song

From Bridges of Time Series Volume 3 (pages 294-295)
Novel by Chris Pierson


Old Danilo Twill had a hundred bags 'o gold,
And a dozen times more silver than he could ever hold,
But he lost it all at knucklebones, till he didn't have a crumb,
Still, there'll always be more where that came from.
 
There's always more where that came from,
So strike up the pipes and bang on the drum,
Now don't be cross, lads, and don't be glum,
'Cause there's always more where that came from.
 
Before a year was done, good old Dan was rich again,
Shipping mead, wine and grog out across the salty main,
Then all his ships went down with their holds all full o' rum,
Still, there'll always be more where that came from.
 
There's always more where that came from,
So strike up the pipes and bang on the drum,
Now don't be cross, lads, and don't be glum,
'Cause there's always more where that came from.
 
Old Dan built himself a mansion, with twenty-seven floors,
Four-and-sixty windows, and twice as many doors,
But it burned right down to the ground and he moved into a slum,
Still, there'll always be more where that came from.
 
There's always more where that came from,
So strike up the pipes and bang on the drum,
Now don't be cross, lads, and don't be glum,
'Cause there's always more where that came from.
 
Now some folk, they might say old Dan's luck is running black,
But no matter what he loses, one day soon he'll win it back,
'Cause all you need's a hoopak and a merry tune to hum,
And there'll always be more where that came from.
