lyrics

You wake to the sound of a creaking door.
*Creak!*
You open your eyes and see a figure at the foot of the bed.

There's no time to fear, no time to worry,
my friend, you see, we truly must hurry.
The king needs a hero, and the king chose you.
There's no time to pause, just time to do.

So climb on your steed and take up your sword.
Come to the aid of our liege, our lord.

There's no time for questions, no time for doubt.
That bed looks warm, but you must get out.
These gifts I give were 'specially made:
the finest of stallions and a talking blade.
CHORUS

You're about to embark on an adventure to help King Gregory.
The first thing you must do is get to the castle and consult with the king.
The way can be dangerous, so you'll need to rely on your companions...
A pony with a limp and incredible courage,
and a pacifist sword with a sharp wit.

Peg-leg soars despite the limp in his walk,
Exsaladbar slashes despite his pacifist talk.
Take them and get to the castle with speed.
The king awaits to tell you his need.
CHORUS

There are two paths you can take to the castle.
To travel through The Desert of Snake-Eating Apes, listen to track 2.
To journey through The Jungle of Ape-Eating Snakes, listen to track 3.
