Full length songs Edit

Elan's Inn Song Edit

In attempt to persuade the patrons of the Weary Travelers Inn and Tavern to leave it calmly, Elan sings this song.

Won't you come leave the inn with me?
There's really neat things you should see
Out there on the emerald fields untilled.
It has nothing to do with you getting killed.

You should follow me out onto the grass'n
It's not so you can avoid the assassins
That sure aren't running loose in the place
And might stab you seven times in the face.

There's no reason at all for us to herd
You out of here fast, I give you my word.
Let's all just leave this inn that's wooden.
If you do, we'll... uh, give you free pudding!

Now each one of you is safe and sound
Outside the inn and on the ground
Where we know you won't be bugged
By two mean guys who just need to be hugged!

O Buddy Roy Edit

After Roy is killed in battle, Haley encourages Elan to sing this lamentation for him. It is sung to the tune of O Danny Boy.

O buddy Roy, the Lich, the Lich came calling
From round to round and in the air this day,
And though we have all found ourselves a'falling,
'Tis you, 'tis you went splat and we're OK.

But come ye back when Raise Dead has been cast
After cash for Diamond Dust we pool,
'Cause we'll be here tomorrow after breakfast,
O buddy Roy, O buddy Roy, you're pretty cool.

But if tomorrow, it turns out we got smacked down
If we're dead, our hit points worn away,
Then sorry dude, you won't be coming back now;
One death sucks, but six spells T-P-K.

I won't see you in the afterlife in that case
Because you're Lawful, and Chaotic Good am I
And I don't think they'll let me hang at your place.
O buddy Roy, O buddy Roy, why did you die?

I Get By Because Roy is my FriendEdit

Only seen in the bonus comic 665a in OOTS: Don't Split The Party. Sung to the the tune of the Beatles song, With a Little Help from My Friends.

What does Roy do when I sing him a song?
Does he stand up and holler at me?
Lend me your ears and we'll all sing along
And we'll try not to make him angry.

Oh, I try because Roy is my friend.
I stay alive becaause Roy is my friend.
The way he sighs tells me Roy is my friend.

What do I do when my buddy is dead?
Does  it worry me to go solo?
How did I feel when he split open his head?
Am I sad because my Wisdoms low?

No! I still try because Roy is my friend.
I don't get fried because Roy is my friend.
We're down to five, but Roy's still my friend.

Do you neeeeeeeeeeeed any leader?
I need somebody like Roy.
Could it beeeeeeeeeeee any leader?
I want somebody like Roy.

Would I believe my best friend is named Dave?
No, his name's Roy, I told you in the hook.
When do I think he'll be back from the grave?
I can't tell you but it'll take the whole book!

Oh! I really try because Roy because Roy is my friend!
I eugolize because Roy is my friend!
I eat pot pies because Roy is my friend! 

Elan's Recap SongEdit

In Bet It Would Get Funded on Kickstarter, Elan recaps the past few strips with a song.

To the Windy Canyon, we all rode
On a flying carpet swift,
Seeking Draketooth's secret abode
And the Gate that seals a rift!

But when we pierced that lair's veil
We found the havoc wreaked.
The scene, so far beyond the pale, 
That our wizard totally freaked.

Just then! A foe struck from the fog
That drove us inside farther!
Nale and Sabine, but instead of Thog,
A masked man (who's probably my father).

With magic, snares, and smoke to smother, 
Our trap played out in this hall.
Belkar knocked out my dumb brother,
To force the bad guys' withdrawal.

Then bold Sir Thumb rode out to fight
But 'gainst glass, could not defend.
They struck him down, brave Digit Knight,
'Til he could neither draw nor bend!
