Rapscallion's Themed Song Contest - Zeksagmak

As is traditional, Rapscallion has risen to the challenge and come up with a medified song contest. To commemorate the death of the mighty Zeksagmak, a battle in which Rapscallion himself fought (from the back ranks of course) he has come up with not one, not two but three medified songs - the origins of which he challenges you to guess at.

All songs medified here are well known in their original versions, but can you work out where these songs came from? To entice you into thinking about this, Rapscallion is offering the princely sum of THREE MIILION gold to one person drawn at random from any who guess all three songs correctly. Email your answers to geb@fuzzface.demon.co.uk and the winner will be announced in the next issue of the Mudslinger.

Let the tourney begin!



Song one

Zeks, the Ruby Dragon, lived in his lair,
He was big and vicious but those heroes did not care.
All the newbies feared him and quailed at his name,
Many was the hunter who went up in a ball of flame.

Zeks, the Ruby Dragon, lurked in his cave,
He fed himself on the remains of those who were too brave.
Zeks, the Ruby Dragon, killed all his foes,
With flame and bite and a mighty stomp from his massive toes.

Many was the time that they drove him from his home,
He'd fly off to pastures new, his scales all flecked with foam.
Clantowns shuddered beneath the beating of his wings,
He ignored all the hunters, their blows to him were merely stings.

Zeks, the Ruby Dragon, lurked in his cave,
He fed himself on the remains of those who were too brave.
Zeks, the Ruby Dragon, killed all his foes,
With flame and bite and a mighty stomp from his massive toes.

The call went out across the lands to beat this big lizard,
In mutters heroes talked so soft, they knew it would be hard.
They gathered up their forces geared up with many things,
And followed the trail of food to where Zeks spread out his wings.

Zeks, the Ruby Dragon, in his fourth lair,
He heard the hunters coming close but he had not a care.
Zeks, the Ruby Dragon, killed near all his foes,
From newbie thieves right up the ranks to DH marked heroes.

He fled his lair for the last time, and made his final stand,
And in the festival clantown he faced the hunting band.
So many lives he took that day, but came the final blow,
And Zeks' life was ended by the heroic Froto.

Zeks, the Ruby Dragon, no more for man to see,
His legend lives on in the pages of Med Four history.
Zeks, the Ruby Dragon, the legend's still alive,
We may not see his like again, until perhaps Med Five.



Song two

Zegsagmak,
Ruby scales protecting front and back,
You did not fear your foes in their attack,
I saw you fight, oh Zeksagmak.

Heroes formed,
Through your lair so many hunters swarmed,
Into your hot den they bravely stormed,
And died so fast, by your breath warmed.

Why you flew away I can't say for I was dead,
The clan-town was braced as they raced to take your head.

Zeksagmak,
From this fight there was no coming back,
I feel shamed for I cut you no slack,
I helped kill you, oh Zeksagmak.



Song three (Rather easy but...)

I'm too Zeksy for this lair, too Zeksy for this lair,
Those Heroes don't care.
I'm too Zeksy for Derah, too Zeksy for Derah,
Trellor and Dray'marr.

And I'm too Zeksy for your hunting,
Too Zeksy for your hunting,
No way I'm easy dying.

I'm a dragon, do you hear the screams?
As I burn up the heroes in the clantown.
Yeah in the clantown, do you hear the screams?
As I whip round my tail in the clantown.

I'm too Zeksy for my breath, too Zeksy for my breath,
It's caused so much death.
And I'm too Zeksy for my hide,
Too Zeksy for my hide, I leave those heroes fried

I'm a dragon, do you hear the screams?
As I burn up the heroes in the clantown.
Yeah in the clantown, do you hear the screams?
As I whip round my tail in the clantown.

Too Zeksy for my hide
Too Zeksy for my hide
Too Zeksy for my hide
Too Zeksy...

I'm a dragon, do you hear the screams?
As I burn up the heroes in the clantown.
Yeah in the clantown, do you hear the screams?
As I whip round my tail in the clantown.

I'm too Zeksy for this town, too Zeksy for this town,
I'm mowing heroes down.
I'm too Zeksy for this life, too Zeksy for this life,
Life's going to leave me.

And I'm too Zeksy for Froto

Too Zeksy for my lair
Too Zeksy for my lair
Too Zeksy for my lair
Too Zeksy for my lair
