The Goblin Dance!

I don’t seem to be able to write anything about goblins that doesn’t have an exclamation mark at the end of it. Sorry ’bout that.

I love these goblins so much I had to write them into these Butterfly Adventurer stories I’ve been podcasting. You can hear about them in “Thom and the Goblins“. Others fear them, but really, they are just waiting all month for that full moon so they can go out and dance all night.

When Thom and Brizbane accidentally stumble upon this moon dance, they are a little frightened until they realize that there is nothing to be afraid of…

 

 

Here are all the lyrics:

The Goblin Dance by April Eight

When the Walla Walla Walla Turns to Bolla Bulla Roo
on the shores of Gitchy Gitchy
Where the Ascomycetes blooms
When the lamp is lit so dimly
that the moon is how you see
then its time, yes its time
when chance and fate collide
then its time, yes its time to do the
GOBLIN DANCE

Hey ya walla walla walla
Hey ya bulla bulla roo
Hey ya walla walla walla
Hey ya bulla bulla roo
Hey ya Hey ya Hey ya Ay

When the moon shines upon them
S’nothing pretty there to see
but the thrill upon their faces
as they dance their jamboree
They love to dance,
It puts them in a trance
they love to dance
They love to dance
The GOBLIN DANCE

Hey ya walla walla walla
Hey ya bulla bulla roo
Hey ya walla walla walla
Hey ya bulla bulla roo
Hey ya Hey ya Hey ya Ay

As the moon fall in answer
to the sun’s request to rise
and the stars softly shimmer
their good mornings their good-byes
when the Bolla Bulla Roo
is Walla Walla Walla once again
on the shores of Gitchy Gitchy
then the GOBLIN DANCE must end.

One last
Hey ya walla walla walla
Hey ya bulla bulla roo
Hey ya walla walla walla
Hey ya bulla bulla roo
Hey ya Hey ya Hey ya Ay

But you know, each Goblins does
their goblin hearts will keep the time.
They can feel it, they can hear it,
(you can go there in your mind)
Until its time, yes its time
When chance and fate again collide
It will be time, yes the time
to do the GOBLIN DANCE

Hey ya walla walla walla
Hey ya bulla bulla roo
Hey ya walla walla walla
Hey ya bulla bulla roo
Hey ya Hey ya Hey ya Ay

And yes, my dad did use to recite parts of Longfellow’s The Song of Hiawatha after dinner when I was little. How do you think I ended up like this?
