Ballad of the Tajéruun

 

They say the Tajéruun are gold, like gold can be for thieves

Their lust for gold slice young and old

Like sickles through the sheaves

They plan and brood their crude delights

And watch their fortune grow

And live to carve a bigger slice

Long before the cock will crow

 

Oh woe, Oh woe, Oh woe to those who dare to deal

With those who love to cheat and steal

bom bom bom.  The Tajéruun

 

Then one dark night Baal offered blood, thirsting for a loan

To hide their dead and plop a puppet on a throne

Baal came knocking at the door of the mighty Tajéruun

Who told them to come back at the fullness of the moon

 

Oh woe, Oh woe, Oh woe to those who dare to deal

With those who love to cheat and steal

bom bom bom.  The Tajéruun

 

So then Baal pleaded his slick case and even offered magic

A thing of darkness (a trick, a trinket)

Deadly bleak and tragic

A silver box full of medallions none had seen before

And when once used will make their owner

A slave forever more

 

And since that time it's hard to say

Who loaned what to whom

The league of thieves and robbers or

The Temple of Doom

The Tajéruun's web of deceit is used to trap and kill

Freedom lovers, honest poets, men of good will

 

Oh woe, Oh woe, Oh woe to those who dare to deal

With those who love to cheat and steal

bom bom bom.  The Tajéruun

 

The Land is being silenced, our voices are cut down

You speak you will be banished

By a puppet with a crown

But deep within he vanished land

Across the stormy Sea

My voice will echo in the hearts of men true and free!

 

Oh woe, Oh woe, Oh woe to those who dare to deal

With those who love to cheat and steal

bom bom bom.  The Tajéruun

bom bom bom.  The Tajéruun

Here they come...  The Tajéruun
