"The Almighty Wes"

There were once a mime named Wes

People called him useless and laughed at his dress

He cried, he wanted to die

He hated them, he wanted to curse and swear but he was a mute

So he came to him a with a board of chess and a fancy suit

He said that if he won he would die

And if he lost he would live

They played for hours on end

Wes did his best but in the end it was a loss

Then the man stood up and said

"That was a mess, but now you're my mine, more or less"

Wes then woke up in a forest, he cried and hide for hours on end

But just as he was about to let the darkness take him

He stood up, and thought that he wouldn't let this end

For he was the almighty Wes

And he took the world all in a stride

Without a guide he found his way to the door which he entered to find the man

He took his way through world after world until he was at the mans front door

He kicked it open and in rage he stormed in like a boar

But it was all a trap

"You have come to far my friend, good thing I apprehended you"

So he locked the almight Wes in a cage made out of pure distress

Decades has come and gone But they still don't dare to speak of his might

for they are filled with fright

And if you ever come the that cursed land

Be sure to save this Wes

Or you will suffer a fate worse than chess

"Frog Rain"

Original song Chocolate Rain by Tay Zonday

Frog Rain

Some play survival and others feel the pain

Frog Rain

A smallbird born will die before the sin

Frog Rain

Wickerbottom says it can't be here again

Frog Rain

Survival mode make you wonder where it went

Frog Rain

Build a tent and say it's useless

Frog Rain

Zoom the camera out and see the clouds

Frog Rain

Frogs to be falling yesterday

Frog Rain

Only in the past is what Maxwell say

Frog Rain

Raised your spider spawning rate

Frog Rain

Makes us happy 'livin on a beefaloe field

Frog Rain

Made me make more traps the other day

Frog Rain

Made Chester turn the other way

(Chorus)

Frog Rain

Deerclops quickly crashing through your base

Frog Rain

Using you to respawn again

[Repeat]

Frog Rain

Seldom mentioned by Maxwell

Frog Rain

It's the fear Maxwell call control

Frog Rain

Worse than swearing worse than spider queens

Frog Rain

Eat green 'shrooms and you're insane

Frog Rain

No one wants to hear the hounds

Frog Rain

Try Wes real hard it goes away somehow

Frog Rain

Made Krampus come to and steal your things again

Frog Rain

But did they know each other in the light?

Frog Rain

Every Summer washed away

Frog Rain

Stays behind as Wx-78 celebrates

Frog Rain

The same farm has a higher price to pay

Frog Rain

Leif and Grue swear it's not the face

(Chorus)

Frog Rain

Deerclops quickly crashing through your base

Frog Rain

Using you to respawn again

[Repeat]

Frog Rain

Dirty secrets of dapperness

Frog Rain

Turns that body into a lumpy mess

Frog Rain

Willow blames the ice and cold

Frog Rain

But drop rates are how much Wilson make

Frog Rain

'Flippin rocks as Wolfgang the other night

Frog Rain

Cleans the swamp out beneath the Maxwell biome

Frog Rain

'Cross advenutre mode and back its all the same

Frog Rain

Wendy cries and shake her head in shame

Frog Rain

Lifts the spear in sin

Frog Rain

Which world do you think you're 'livin in?

Frog Rain

More than 'marchin more than passing adventure mode

Frog Rain

Remake how we got to where we are.

@Alvhem & @Matt

"Willow's pyre"

orignal song 15 min flame by Poets of The fall

Maxwell's standing at your field taking in what you've sown

Can't help feeling apprehension

No point in waiting, for a rating for what you have grown

Look for burning consolation

If I act accordingly will it save my sanity

You're either you or a loyalty disowned

Well excuse me

Who was it who wanted every sec of the Eternal flame

A name to last for all eternity

Who was it who wanted Searing destructuion beyond definitions

When Embers alone is enough to set you free

No escaping though you're running, you cannot find home

Drowning in your desperation

Conviction seems to follow accusations alone

No place here for an easy redemption

If I lack your tears of joy, please forgive my heartless ploy

Said the fool to his majesty dethroned

Now excuse me

Who was it who wanted every sec of the Eternal Flame

To name a love to last through all your infamy

Who was it who wanted Searing destructuion in their definitions

When name alone can jail eternally

Who was it who wanted every sec of the flame

Who was it who wanted every sec of the Eternal Flame

A name to last for all eternity

Who was it who wanted Searing destructuion beyond definitions

When Embers alone is enough to set you

@Lord_Battal

"Wolfgang's Inprisonment"

Oh, once long ago there was a great stong guy,

He fell into a pit and there he lied,

The pain in his body was great but then he

Saw a shadow drawing itself next to he.

It formed in the form of a suited man,

He leant down to Wolfgang and then he said,

"Hey pal, you look seriously injured to me,

Why don't you come along, I'll make the pain freeze."

So with all his might injured Wolfgang did stand,

And followed the demon to a distant land,

But he was betrayed, the pain never did stop,

And there was great Wolfgang, completely lost.

@johnsnake71

"Tallbirds"

"Wilson on the verge of starving,

but wait! His hallucination cried, there's an egg!

Wilson knew his hallucination clone must be tricking him,

but hunger got the best of him,

so he picked up the egg,

then the black rock curled up next to him,

one eye, one beak, 2 wings, 2 very long legs.

The bird cried of anger!

Wilson ran, his Hallucination dying of laughter,

with the egg still in his hand.

Wilson, at the corner of his eye,

a large hole, ran up towards it and darkness below,

his hallucination pushed him down,

and into the unknown depths below."

@MycoLogical

"Ode to Wickerbottom"

Now gather found my friends, the fire is nice and bright

I'ma gonna tell you a story, and no not one of fright

This is a story about a woman I know

Whose brain is grand as the driven snow

Her name is Wickerbottom and boy is she that smart

In stuff like science, music, film and art

Now the next bit is tricky, but please sing along

It's what Wickerbottom would want, so try and do it strong

She knows Mycology, Aerology, Ovology and Phagology

Pteridology, Entomology, Speleology and Taxology

Brontology, Ornithology, Cetology and Planktology

Pulicologist, Vexillology, Limacology and Ichthyology

Her name is Wickerbottom and boy is she that smart

In stuff like science, music, film and art

Now the next bit is tricky, but please sing along

It's what Wickerbottom would want, so try and do it strong

She knows Iatrology, Timbrology, Emmenology and Cynology

Campanology, Astacology, Myrmecology and Ombrology

Odonatology, Lepidopterology, Logology and Trichology

Telmatology, Graminology, Eschatology and Tsiology

Her name is Wickerbottom and boy is she that smart

In stuff like science, music, film and art

Now the next bit is tricky, but please sing along

It's what Wickerbottom would want, so try and do it strong

She knows Teuthology, Agmatology, Melittology and Apiology

Nidology, Numismatology, Pernalogy and Cyesiology

Gephyrology, Uredinology, Kalology and Loimology

Psephology, Emetology, Deontology and Crainiology

Her name is Wickerbottom and boy is she that smart

In stuff like science, music, film and art

Now the song is over, and boy I'm bet you're glad

But this is not all she knows, this is just a tad!

@Snob

"Cause"

Wilson asked himself,

"What am I fighting for?"

Was it merely a joke,

"I can't take it anymore"

Yet he woke up in agony

Crying through his sleep

He saw all the horrors

While weeping on the creep

"It's just another day"

He kicked the pebbles forcefully

"I can't believe it's day"

He watched the sun soar gracefully

And for time he found inspiration

To build a science machine

And then he went on for science

Without hesitation or greed

For once he was proud

For what he done alone

Through struggles and loneliness

That subsided in his home

@Matt

"The Nightmare Rains"

Original song: Rains of Castamere - Game of Thrones

And who are you? The tall man said, that I must suffer for?

Only a hound of a different fur, that's all the truth I know.

In a fur of ice or a fur of fire, a hound still has claws,

And mine are long and sharp, my pal, as long and sharp as yours.

And so he spoke, and so he spoke, that gentleman in fear

But now the rains weep o'er his world, and he can only hear

Yes now the rains weep o'er his world, and his lonely soul just hears

[instrumental - Lute]

And so he spoke, and so he spoke, that gentleman in fear

But now the rains weep o'er his world, and he can only hear

Yes now the rains weep o'er his world, and his lonely soul just fears

@Shadow_Of_Awesome

"Caves and raves"

Slurtles and snurtles and

Bunnymen hurdles... Full of merms

and a cane all around, if only

wilson P. higgsbury made up some wings then

the piggys could fly and the walruses could die.

just make sure the smallbirds and mandrakes have a home

or then Willow the fire queen will make them see hope...

Just as maxwell prepares for the game he plays a round a chess

not to blame, then wolfgang the strong makes his way around

long... to murder the great beast of koalefant tracks to survive winter

he must stack... The rabbits, the bees, the horrible disease is one thing

to starve for their he must win the masters throne of sin.

Or he will starve and not win...

@Ellebelly24

Original song: Pinkie Pie's Gypsy Bard

When your ripe with devastation,

Theres a simple explanation,

Your one of Maxwell's creations,

Trapped inside a crystal ball.

And which ever way he tilts it,

Know that we must be resilient,

We won't let him break our spirits as we sing our campfire song!

When I was a little kiddy,

Willows blaze over took my city,

They shipped me off to the orphanage,

Said ditch those drapes if you wanna fit in.

So I dug 1,000 holes,

And mined a rock with orphaned twins

Now memories are blurred

and their faces are obscure

But I still know the words to this song!

When you fumble all your bangles

And your mandrake has been mangled,

Listen to the jingle jangle of my one man band-arine!

Cuz these scores are hypnotizing,

And the whole worlds harmonizing,

So please guys just stop your fighting

And just sing along with me!

@earendil

"My name is Willow"

My name is Willow.

No more pillow.

I'm in gloom,

It's my doom.

No more home.

Crash!

Nothing but ash...

A lightning fall,

It's awfull.

A shy fire shine,

Make me fine!

The forest burns out.

Symphony of crackles.

Fireworks sounds perils.

No more alone,

Darkness has gone!

This world burns,

It's remind me home

It was very fun...!

My name is Willow,

I will be your sorrow!

@aredshroom

"Turn Loose The Shadows" Original by Nightwish- Turn Loose The Mermaids

A dense fog hov'ring over gravestones grey

While a safe resting place lies far away

Just hold on to your sanity while drowning in awe

Oh, how bright the day used to be

Picking berries and grasses along the sea

The full moon, hangs in darkness as

Night falls still

At the end of a short dusk, the fireflies beam

With all the haste of a life short lived

Here, weary scientist should work those hands

Light the fire with your mind

A night survived, it's time to go

Light rekept the shadows from nipping your toes

But in the horizon of sight They're coming for you

The hidden depths, the forever call

Beauty in death on a dying flame's porch

The magic you turned loose bring back your fears

At the end of a short dusk, the fireflies beam

With all the haste of a life short lived

Here, weary scientist should work those hands

Light the fire with your mind

At the end of a short day, the sun does beam

With all the pity of a light short lived

Here, weary scientist should keep your flame

Chase the shadows within your mind

At the end of a short dusk, the fireflies beam

With all the haste of a life short lived

Here, weary scientist should work those hands

Light the fire with your mind

At the end of a short day, the sun does beam

With all the pity of a light short lived

Here, weary scientist should keep your flame

Chase the shadows within your mind

"Ode to Maxwell"

Click here to download the song!

Lyrics:

VERSE:

Well you were sitting there, mindin' your own

when hear this sort of, telephone

It whispers to you would you like to know

forbidden knowledge, yeah? well here we go!

out of nowhere you feel clarity

an urge to build machines all science-y

your first creation's nothing but a success

flip the switch now lets put it to the test!

CHORUS:

Maxwell, the devil himself

A dapper gentleman but boy he'll put you through hell, oh he's

Maxwell, beware his call

he'll trap you in his world with no escape at all

HE'S MAXWELL!

VERSE:

He's lean and mean, and very sneaky

He's very presumptuous and a little cheeky

A bit of a snide fellow as you can see

but if you cross him you will regret it immediately!

You're entertainment to him, don't you realize?

He'll make you cower and make you think you're seeing eyes

Or maybe they're really there, I wouldn't get tired

He'll make shadowy hand come out and steal your fire! Because he's

CHORUS

BRIDGE:

Poor little you, stuck here all alone

With winter coming and ready to chill you right to the bone, you

Find the same contraption that you built back home

Wonder where it goes...Adventure Hooo!

Lyrics:

Tomtomtomtom tomtomtom tomtomtomtom

tomtomtomtom tomtomtom tomtomtomtom

tomtomtomtom tomtomtom tomtomtomtom

tomtomtomtom tomtomtom tomtom tomtom tomtom

Pick up flint, dig up the sapling

Maxwell said you better find something

to eat before, the darkness of night comes

Make an axe, and cut some trees down

gather all the wood and some pinecones

make some boards, to craft a chest

(tom tomtom tomtom tom tom)

But to start your research

you need to find stone and gold

so start exploring, for a nearby rock biome

And when you finally find them

you can make some science

and restore some sanity

A beefalo herd is good source for poo,

and you are always, gonna have to

Pick more flint, dig up more saplings

and you also better find something

to eat before, you die of starvation

Kill spiders - they sure are nasty!

Catch four bees and crock-pot some taffy

Honey food - to restore health

"The fire"

Click here to listen to the song!

Lyrics:

What protects you,

In the night?

It is very,

Oh-so bright.

Chorus

The fire is warm,

The fire is bright.

Make it,

Love it,

Nurture it right.

Shadows are coming,

Will they get you?

Will you make it?

The fire is due.

Its brightness comes,

Its life begun.

The fire you made,

Must last night-long.

Chorus

They are watching,

Your every move.

Shadow hands reaching,

To get you.

Chase them away,

For they will lose.

You will make this,

First night through.

Chorus

The light comes now,

The fire is low.

You’ve survived ,

You’ve kept your soul.

The fire is gone now,

Dawn has come.

For this night,

Was already won.

Chorus

"Really Dapper Guy"

Click here to download the song

Lyrics:

Now here's a story, about a really dapper guy. He liked science a lot, maybe a bit too much, which brought him

into a really strange world... here we go

Let me tell you a tale about

this guy who had never a doubt

He is short but he certainly knows

How to set all those demons loose

Research with a strange device

Got him into a game of vice;

He got captured and he was brought

to this world of pain and drought

On the road, on the way

On the road, into the fray

On the road, on the way

On the road, into the fray

The first day came and soon went by

Like the third, seventh, ninety-ninth

Winter fitness, robot madness

It all ends in mindless sadness

Camp was torn up really badly

not as bad as his sanity

time has come to hit the border

Shadows lurked at every corner

On the road again, on the way again

On the road again, into the fray

One deerclops, one Bishop

It does not matter

(no singing) they're all dead

But our story doesn't end here, with destroyed robots and torn up chests, see,

this little fella' was just too hell-bent on revenge

Research made, day and night

implement and overwrite

One more gem and one more glue

That was just the needed clue

The day has come for the breakthrough

A great discovery through and through

On this-one day he could find

to bring the fight to the mastermind

Swords have flashed

minds have clashed

in a game of chess

(no singing) for life, and death

Move the pawn, move the knight

Send the rook, to the right

Move the rook again, move the pawn again

Move the knight at them, move the rook

Move the rook again, move the pawn again

Move the knight at them

Move them over the field, over the field move the knight!

Move the rook, to the right

Move the pawn again move the knight at them

Move the rook again over the field

Guard the king again, move the queen to him

Move the king to the right, wait, no!

A-ha! Checkmate!

One bad move, and he seized it, and the kid has won. Long after the match had begun.

And after all that,he managed to defeat his inner demons, and thus ends the tale of the... of the... this really

dapper guy.

Warden: "I'd sing a campfire song, too bad I don't know any songs." That's actually a quote I made for my character a while ago when I was thinking of quotes for him, and it still rings true :D As for creating my own song, that's completely out of the question :fatigue:

Here is my official submission to your contest, Raccoon. :)

http://www.mediafire.com/?ic4ixiymxdbshoh

I tried to get it as close to a traditional campfire song as I could, hope you all enjoy it! I had a lot of fun writing and singing it but unfortunately the audio quality stinks, so apologies for that...

I included a .txt document containing the lyrics in the download, but I'll put them here as well for reference.

LYRICS:

VERSE:

Well you were sitting there, mindin' your own

when hear this sort of, telephone

It whispers to you would you like to know

forbidden knowledge, yeah? well here we go!

out of nowhere you feel clarity

an urge to build machines all science-y

your first creation's nothing but a success

flip the switch now lets put it to the test!

CHORUS:

Maxwell, the devil himself

A dapper gentleman but boy he'll put you through hell, oh he's

Maxwell, beware his call

he'll trap you in his world with no escape at all

HE'S MAXWELL!

VERSE:

He's lean and mean, and very sneaky

He's very presumptuous and a little cheeky

A bit of a snide fellow as you can see

but if you cross him you will regret it immediately!

You're entertainment to him, don't you realize?

He'll make you cower and make you think you're seeing eyes

Or maybe they're really there, I wouldn't get tired

He'll make shadowy hand come out and steal your fire! Because he's

CHORUS

BRIDGE:

Poor little you, stuck here all alone

With winter coming and ready to chill you right to the bone, you

Find the same contraption that you built back home

Wonder where it goes...Adventure Hooo!

Thank you very much for entering the contest!

I was waiting for this song all day o3o

Yeah, this contest needs more participants. :) Campfire songs are usually on the easier side to write since the structure of a campfire song is very lenient. I mean hell, it doesn't even have to rhyme! As long as it tells a good story. ;) Anyone can make a good campfire song! I would love to see other people's ideas and creativity with music! (not that everyone's artwork here is anything shy of amazing...)

Tallbirds

"Wilson on the verge of starving,but wait! His hallucination cried, there's an egg!Wilson knew his hallucination clone must be tricking him,but hunger got the best of him,so he picked up the egg,then the black rock curled up next to him, one eye, one beak, 2 wings, 2 very long legs.The bird cried of anger!Wilson ran, his Hallucination dying of laughter,with the egg still in his hand.Wilson, at the corner of his eye, a large hole, ran up towards it and darkness below,his hallucination pushed him down,and into the unknown depths below."

My first ever song by the way. Not the greatest :D
