Eastern Queen

This was my first venture into writing and performing filks, or song parodies, in an SCA court. The story behind this piece, and the royal whim that inspired it, is here.

Eastern Queen

Lyrics by Eric Schrager (aka Drake Oranwood)
(To the tune of “Dancing Queen” by ABBA)

Ooh–ooh… yeah!
You can feast, you can thrive,
Having the time of your life!
Ooh, see that crown, watch that scene
Vivat the Eastern Queen!

Saturday with the candles low
Court’s in session and off you go
Where they play the right music
Getting in the swing
You’ve got the look (so’s the King)

Couldn’t be prouder of that guy
Night is young and the music’s high
With some period music
Everything is fine
You say it’s time for feast

And since you’ve tamed that beast,
You are the Eastern Queen,
Proud and sweet, court can reconvene!
Eastern Queen, with a taste for well-researched cuisine, yeah!

You can feast, you can thrive,
Having the time of your life
Ooh, see that crown, watch that scene,
Vivat the Eastern Queen!

You’re the model, you lead the way,
Light ’em burning and off they play,
Looking out for each other,
Looking up to you,
You say it’s time for feast…

And since you’ve tamed that beast,
You are the Eastern Queen,
Proud and sweet, court can reconvene!
Eastern Queen, with a taste for well-researched cuisine, yeah!

You can feast, you can thrive,
Having the time of your life
Ooh, see that crown, watch that scene,
Vivat the Eastern Queen!
Vivat the Eastern Queen!
