A Thousand Ships, Take Two
words: Merav Hoffman, Seanan McGuire, Batya "The Toon" Wittenberg
tune: Bill Steele, "A Thousand Songs"; The Proclaimers, "A Thousand Miles"

And I started out this morning by outshining the sun
I won the golden apple and I've only just begun
I'll try to launch a thousand ships before this day is done
And tomorrow we will have the Trojan War....

When I wake up
Well I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be right here behind the walls of Troy
And I know that
They are never gonna call
I know they'll never call him selfish lovesick boy

I was married
I was married to a man
Who thought that I was just a pretty golden toy
It would be nice (But he's not nice!)
Were he coming here to save me
But he's not -- he's only coming to destroy!

Far below me
On the shore the battle rages
And the fire arrows pierce me to the core
Well Cassandra (Poor Cassandra!)
Said this was a bad idea
But nobody listens to her anymore

And the mirror
Doesn't tell me any lies
As the tears run down to wet my wrinkling lips
When he stole me (Stupid Paris!)
He forgot the moisturizer
To preserve the face that launched a thousand ships!

Back to the filking
Back to Toontown
