Saying Good-By In My Own Way

For some strange reason, these lyrics came to me this morning. They are sung to the tune "American Pie", although I only had time to quickly wite the first and last verses and the chorus.

Feel free to fill in the gaps...after all, it's a pretty long song.

A long, long time ago
I can still remember how Valhalla used to make me smile
And I knew if I had my way
I could get my kids to play
And maybe we’d be happy for a while
But November gave me quavers
When I logged on Heroscapers
Bad new on the front page
The fans were in an outrage
Well I don’t remember if I cried when I
Read what Wizards did decide
But something touched me deep inside
The day the Heroscape died

So bye-bye Tagawa Samurai,
I’ll miss the Snipers and the Vipers and the old 4th Mass Line
And good old Orcs with Krug and Grimnak beside
Shouting “This’ll be the day that I die.”
“This’ll be the day that I die.”


I met a guy who Screamed the Truth
And I asked him for some happy news
But he just smiled and turned away
So I went down to the big box store
Where I’d bought expansions years before
But the man there said expansions didn’t pay
And in my house the children screamed
My wife was glad, but I was steamed
And not a word was spoken
Because my heart was broken
And the three men I admired most
The Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost
Got screwed by Wizards of the Coast
The day the Heroscape died.

Re: Saying Good-By In My Own Way

Here's a start to the second verse:

Did you write the Books of 'Scape
And do you have faith in Sgt Drake...

Okay, I'm tapped out now.

Re: Saying Good-By In My Own Way

Here's one (if you want it)

And, there they were, grouped in one place – a bunch of heroes lost in space,
If they die they just come back again.
So, come on, Drake is nimble, Carr is quick – Dund loves to play chase the stick
KC is Runa’s only friend.
And as I read the words on the front page, my hands were clenched in fists of rage
No Wizard from the Coast, could make ‘Scape give up the ghost
And as the news at last sank in, I thought to myself, it’s a freaking sin
The day the HeroScape died.

Re: Saying Good-By In My Own Way

@jbbnbsmith, RabSheila RabSheila, Mad Wookiee
You guys inspired me to get the lyrics and try and finish it out. I use your lyrics where I could and changed some stuff. Here it is please edit if you can think up some better word play. This is a long song so...long post.

A long, long time ago
I can still remember how Valhalla used to make me smile
And I knew if I had my way
I could get my kids to play
And maybe we’d be happy for a while

But November gave me quavers
with the post that Truth delivered
Bad new on the front page
the fans were in an outrage

Well I don’t remember if I cried
about what those at Wizards did decide
But something touched me deep inside
The day the Heroscape died

So bye-bye Tagawa Samurai,
I’ll miss the Snipers and the Vipers and the old 4th Mass Line
And good old Orcs with Krug and Grimnak beside
Shouting “This’ll be the day that I die.”
“This’ll be the day that I die.”

Did you write the Books of 'Scape
and do you have faith in Sgt Drake...
If the Reverend tells you so?
Do you believe in rolling dice?
Can a perfect draft save you life?
And will you teach me how to Bond just so.

Well I know you’ll never forgive them
By the tone of all your petitions
We were seeking all kinds of news
Man dig those podcast blues.

I was an avid gamer with burning bucks
With a need to complete my collection
But I knew I was out of luck
The day the Scape did die.

I started singing,
Bye-bye Tagawa Samurai,
I’ll miss the Snipers and the Vipers
And the old 4th Mass Line.
And them good old Orcs with Krug and Grimnak beside
and shouting “This’ll be the day that I die.”
“This’ll be the day that I die”

Now for six years we’ve been playing strong
And tiles grow tall, when you played so long
But for newbs that’s not how it going to be.
When the play testers worked for the ceo’s
With figures, from other games, that were stole
“And a desire that came from you and me,”

Oh, and while the fans were looking round
At all the D&D on the ground.
The board room was adjourned
No profits had returned
And while some became the CG3
The customizers worked religiously
Designing customs for you and me
The day the Scaping died.

And we were singing
Bye-bye Tagawa Samurai,
I’ll miss the Snipers and the Vipers
And the old 4th Mass Line.
And them good old Orcs with Krug and Grimnak beside
and shouting “This’ll be the day that I die.”
“This’ll be the day that I die”

Higgledy Piggledy, the fall leaves were wiggly
When Scapers make a run on the online sellers,
Eighteen dollars and rising fast.
E-bay seller changing fast
Prices to make you want to gasp
With the license in limbo; what a mess.

Were the rumors of buyers more than fumes?
While the old guard ran to spread the news,
We dropped on bended knees.
Oh but we never got reprieved
Cause The Gaming Gang could not reveal
Any news that didn't make us ill.
Do you recall the way what was the deal
The day the Scaping died?

We were singing
Bye-bye Tagawa Samurai,
I’ll miss the Snipers and the Vipers
And the old 4th Mass Line.
And them good old Orcs with Krug and Grimnak beside
and shouting “This’ll be the day that I die.”
“This’ll be the day that I die”

And, there they were, grouped in one place
A bunch of heroes lost in space;
if they die they just come back again.
So, come on, Drake is nimble, Carr is quick –
Dund loves to play chase the stick
KC is Runa’s only friend.

And as I read what was on the home page,
my hands were clenched in fists of rage
No Wizard from the Coast,
Could make my ‘Scape a ghost
and as the news at last sank in,
I thought to myself, it’s a freaking sin
I saw ceo’s with devilish grins.
The day the Scaping died.

They were singing
Bye-bye Tagawa Samurai,
you’ll miss the Snipers and the Vipers
And the old 4th Mass Line.
And them good old Orcs with Krug and Grimnak besides
shouting “This’ll be the day that I die.”
“This’ll be the day that I die”

I met a guy who Screamed the Truth
And I asked him for some happy news
But he just smiled and turned away
So I went down to the big box store
Where I’d bought expansions years before
But the man there said no expansions here today.

And in my house the children screamed
my wife was glad, but I was steamed
And not a word was spoken
because my heart was broken
and the three men I esteemed the most
The creators of the game I love to host
their creation screwed by Wizards of the Coast
the day that Heroscape died.

And they were singing
Bye-bye Tagawa Samurai,
I’ll miss the Snipers and the Vipers
And the old 4th Mass Line.
And them good old Orcs with Krug and Grimnak beside
and shouting “This’ll be the day that I die.”
“This’ll be the day that I die

And they were singing
Bye-bye Tagawa Samurai,
I’ll miss the Snipers and the Vipers
And the old 4th Mass Line.
And them good old Orcs with Krug and Grimnak beside
and shouting “This’ll be the day that I die.”
“This’ll be the day that I die

I, like God, do play with dice and do believe in coincidence.
