Track Name: I'll Die A Thousand Times To Kill You
Walk the road to the trading post
Thirty bear pelts I had sold
For a flask of the finest yak's
Pee in these woods
For a flask of the finest yak's
Pee in these woods

Now the empty pizza boxes
Lie beside me in the darkness
Haven't slept at least
Since level three
Haven't slept at least
Since level three

Unbeknownst to my poor soul
The drink, it wouldn't help my goal
To have the cold steel of my blade
Finish my foe
To have the cold steel of my blade
Finish my foe

I'll die a thousand times
To kill you
But I can't live
Without my enemy

There in the forest lies a cheat
What quickning potion did he drink
Don't lie to me
Or to the forest ye lie too
Don't lie to me
Or to the forest ye lie too

Though ye may vanquish me today
I swear that we shall meet again
Once I've acquired better weapons to smite you
Track Name: The Brave Sir Genwald Thuswindburn
I'll tale ye a tale now that ye may learn
Of the brave Sir Genwald Thuswindburn
His blade is fierce and his handshake firm
And he smells of a bear's entrails

And each level through he'd duel and duel
With Sir Luke John, that lunging 'ol fool
Who'd boast of writing death haikus
With a quill from the blood he'd spill

But thy'd say, "Haiku yer face to my blade
Yer face to my blade, ye foul, foul knave"
Thy'd say, "Haiku yer face to my blade
And fly to mortality's passing"

Swing, Swing
The sword that he swings it
Sings, Sings
Hymns of thine enemies' demise
Hymns of thine enemies' demise
Lie-die-die-di-di-die-die-die
Prepare to relinquish your life, aye
Lie-die-die-di-di-die-die-die

Alas, what's this? A wee churro, tis.
Nay, he'd say, tis a warwitch
And try though ye may, ye shan't kill it
For its shield is the Lion's Blaze

But the brave Thuswindburn died and died
Again and again, he foolishly tried
Until he'd nearly lost all of his lives
And most of his inventory

But there is just one more course that is known
To join the War Dance of Hammersnow
He'd need one more in his party though
So he asked Sir Luke John to join him

Chorus

And Thuswindburn slayed the dragon indeed
But to bring the doom to the Skeleton King
He must become the legendary, the legendary
Battle Bear
