Stuck in the Mead Hall

I promised a second post about things I encountered at the SCA event I attended, and here 'tis. I hate filking. A lot. But this song just charmed me.

I give you, "Stuck in the Mead Hall" by Lord Bjorn Ragnarsson, sung to the tune of Stealers Wheel's "Stuck in the Middle."

Well I don't know how I came here tonight
I've had a few and now I'm feelin' alright
It's so hard to keep from falling from my chair
and I wonder if I can get down the stairs

I've got Celts to the left of me
A Saxon on my right, here I am
Stuck in the mead hall with you

Yes I'm stuck in the mead hall with you
and I'm wonderin' what it is I should do
I's so hard to keep this smile from my face
as I stagger round all over the place


Well I started out with one and then I had another one to get me goin'
Now I'm tippin' back my horn but it's empty, it's all gone
I need more mead, mead

Now I'm tryin' to find the way to my tent
It's hard to do when you're this damn bent
Is it cool to sleep here on the grass?
Cause if I don't I might just fall on my ass.

[Chorus x2]
