Melvin of Skingrad (Bard Song)

from Beyond Skyrim: Bruma (Original Game Soundtrack) by Daniel Ran



A long time ago, near a city called home
Was born quite the scoundrel, a boy full of storm
Sir Melvin of Skingrad, of glory and fame
Our hero and saviour, but only in name

One day during supper, a girl in despair
Her brother with scissors had ruined her hair
So, Melvin of Skingrad, with dagger and flair
He chased down her brother, straight to a fiend's lair

The brother was eaten by goblins and wraiths
But Melvin of Skingrad, he hid in some crates
And when he tried fleeing, he fell on some glass
He woke all the goblins who ran for his arse

Straight back to the village, the fiends and their bones
The folk started screaming and ran for their homes
But Melvin of Skingrad, his heart had been swayed
What hero would flee when his family needs aid?

So, while his legs weakened, he turned to his side
With dagger and flair he would die for his pride
For time that was needed, in blood he had paid
The guards all came running, the goblins were slayed

We buried our Melvin, with glory and fame
As hero and saviour, not only in name
All things being equal, his plight was our fault
He saved us from nothing but stole all of our hearts
