    SONG LYRICS
    The Ren Faire Song performed by The Musical Blades from the album Up the Ante
    https://www.musicalblades.com
    Step right up and come inside, 
    To a world of make believe, Of shiny knights and maidens fair,
    You'll never want to leave, 
    Be sure to buy your wooden sword, 
    For fourteen ninety five,And grab a handful of the King's nuts,As soon as you arrive, Cause fantasy's just a step away,
    And nothing doth compare
    Cause you'll see your life in a different way,
    Through the lens of ye olde ren faire   HUZZAH! We've got all the kilted Shrek sounding men,
    And the fairies ya need,
    We've got all the elves and the gypsy boys,
    And we've got a sample of mead,
    Step up and test your balance and strength,
    And be sure to jump on all the rides, 
    It's amazing the things you can get on a stick,And all the things that you can get fried, Cause fantasy's just a step away,
    And nothing doth compare
    Cause you'll see your life in a different way,
    Through the lens of ye olde ren faire  HUZZAH! You'll find fire eaters and jugglers here,You'll find Kings and their Queens too,You'll see wizards and warriors and Star Wars dweebsAnd a singing pirate crew,
    We've got clothes, we've got armor, We've got turkey legsJust waiting here for you,
    And you can use your Master Card,
    Or Lady Visa too... Cause fantasy's just a step away,
    And nothing doth compare
    Cause you'll see your life in a different way,
    Through the lens of ye olde ren faire  HUZZAH! 
    I'll Tell My Ma performed by Tullamore from the album The O'Malley's Sessions - One for the Road
    https://www.tullamore.band/home
    I'll Tell My Ma
    I'll tell my ma when I get home,
    The boys won't leave the girls alone
    They pull my hair and stole my comb
    But that's all right till I go home
    She is handsome, she is pretty,
    She is the Belle of Belfast city
    She is a courtin' one, two, three,
    Please won't you tell me who is she
    Albert Mooney says he loves her,
    All the boys are fightin' for her
    Knock at the door and ring at the bell,
    Saying oh my true love, are you well
    Out she comes as white

    LYRICS
    Haste to the Wedding/Rural Felicity
    Come haste to the wedding ye friends and ye neighbours
    The lovers their bliss can no longer delay.
    Forget all your sorrows your cares and your labors,
    And let every heart beat with rapture today.
     
    Come, come one and all, attend to my call,
    And revel in pleasures that never can cloy.
    Come see rural felicity,
    Which love and innocence ever enjoy.
     
    Let Envy, Let Pride, Let Hate & Ambition,
    Still Crowd to, & beat at the breast of the Great,
    To Such Wretched Passions we Give no admission,
    But Leave them alone to the wise ones of State.
     
    We Boast of No wealth, but Contentment & Health,
    In mirth & in Friendship, our moments employ
    Come see rural felicity,
    Which love and innocence ever enjoy.
     
    With Reason we taste of Each Heart Stirring pleasure,
    With Reason we Drink of the full flowing Bowl,
    Are Jocund & Gay, But 'tis all within measure,

Reviewers Welcome ,

Lots of Fun

Sort of a Celtic version of our American "a Prairie Home Companion". Well done with lots of skits and songs. 1001 thanks and keep up the good work!

claxxon ,

this podcast is awful!

I have listened to this podcasts for a long time, and it just keeps getting worse. the only good thing about this podcast is the music. The hosts have always sounded like they wish they were someplace else. I wish they would try to make more of a show of it. Hearing thick southern accents lacadasically tell me about the next ren thing kills it for me. Or the past hosts badly trying on renniassance accents while speaking in what can only be described as a drug induced cadence was, and still is AWFUL!

Kababco ,

Great variety of music

Love the bawdy songs!
