The first QfGlorification here for some time! :) Hope you enjoy. ;)

Banker's Cash
(parody of "Monster Mash", by Bobby Pickett and The Crypt-Kickers)
Sung by a Silmarian guard

I was guarding Market Square late one night,
When I did observe outlandish sight.
'Twas the Prince of Shapier, I did surmise,
Then suddenly, to my surprise...

He stole the cash!
He stole the banker's cash.
The banker's stash!
It surely was not trash.
Stock market crash!
Now Princey acts all brash.
Why is he rash?
He has the banker's cash.

I observed him from the shadows, for 'twas best,
Then I said "Signome, you're under arrest."
He begged me "Not jail!" He was in a bind,
And that was what I had in mind...

Let's share the cash!
Let's share the banker's cash.
The banker's stash!
It surely is not trash.
Let's share the cash!
And I will act all brash.
The prince was rash!
We'll share the banker's cash.

Well I knew he was a prince, and he chewed gum,
So I asked him for a princely sum.
'Twas tough for him, you know he had no chance,
Or hemp fandango he would dance.

Desp'rately he told me that we'd share the loot;
Good to see a man with mouth not full of foot.
I really hoped that he would not use Morse;
I wouldn't like to use the Force.

We'll share the cash!
We'll share the banker's cash.
The banker's stash!
It surely is not trash.
We'll share the cash!
Now I can act all brash.
The prince was rash!
We'll share the banker's cash.

The next night I was waiting on the bridge,
I was thinking maybe I could buy a fridge.
With my share of loot, perhaps I'll settle down,
Oh the dreams I had, perhaps a crown...?

I'll have some cash!
I'll have some banker's cash.
The banker's stash!
It surely is not trash.
I'll have some cash!
I'll be a hit to smash.
The prince was rash!
I'll have some banker's cash.

Then I was back-stabbed - oh, what high drama!
'Twas a poisoned dagger by Ann Agrama.
Gnome Ann said "I'm a gnome, but make no rhymes";
It's funny how blackmail turns out sometimes...

They'll have the cash!
They'll have the banker's cash.
The banker's stash!
It surely won't be trash.
They'll have the cash!
Gnome Ann will be a smash.
My painful gash!
They'll have the banker's cash.

They'll have the cash...

There are many types of magic, but all require a sharp mind and a cool head. There is no puzzle I can't solve, no problem I can't think my way out of. When you feel confused or uncertain, you can always rely on me to untangle the knots and put everything back in order for you.

I think it helps to play the original song, Monster Mash, in the background on Youtube or some other source.  Then you can read these clever lyrics at the same time.  :)   They fit very well.

Indeed - this one is quite a good animation of the song. =)  The only disadvantage is that it doesn't have the original lyrics, but it should give you an idea of how the song goes!  Enjoy :)
