[Life] A Night In the Heatherlands

Heather Alexander concerts are always fun. This time, we got to hear some songs from the two upcoming albums (the one that goes with the "Merlin's Descendants" novels coming out on May 1st, and the one of Heather's own music coming out in June), as well as old favorites. ("Hap'n Frog," "Frog of Cambreadth," "Dance in the Circle," "Golden Ring," "Neverland" -- first time I'd heard it live -- and of course, "Black Jack's Lady" and "Yo Ho!" among many others.)

The Lord Protector was there, of course. And I think most of us had lost our voices by the end. In honor of the stuffed Hersey's-kiss-bearing teddy bear someone presented Heather with -- christened 'Sir Candy-breath' in honor of 'Cambreadth' -- I quickly filked 'March of Candy-breath.' (Which earned an, "Oh... oh GOD... and you know, this is one of the better ones...")

Too tired to write coherent post. Sleeping now. Though I provide the 'March of Candy-breath' below...

March of Candy-breath
by Rachel Blackman
tto 'March of Cambreadth,' Heather Alexander

Plastic rips, wrappers gleam!
Rich dark chocolate, filled with cream!
Calorie count up in the sky,
HOW MANY TO GET A SUGAR HIGH?!

Nougat-filled, or crispy rice,
Bite-sized chocolates sure are nice!
Candy binge makes dentists cry,
HOW MANY TO GET A SUGAR HIGH?!

Run down to the corner store,
We've run out, we must buy more!
Grab a bag, untwist that tie,
HOW MANY TO GET A SUGAR HIGH?!

Sugar crash has laid us low;
Feel real sick, and move real slow!
Couldn't know until we'd try,
HOW MANY TO GET A SUGAR HIGH?!
