The Lyrics

This song is not meant to be funny but this is about the beauty and majesty of Azeroth in the World of Warcraft. It is a string of observations and things many people have done. I see the beauty of the real world before and the World of Warcraft is no different. This is also a tribute to the late John Denver for his love of nature. I would love comments. Constructive comments are welcomed especially. I need to learn to improve this art of mine. Please do comment. I will do one for the Horde later. Hope you enjoy it!
Well the dungeon's done,
I'm ready to go
We killed the last boss in his hole
We pick up the loot that he drops from his corpse
As we start to leave the dungeon room
Outskirts of town,
It almost looms
I pay the Gryphon/Wyvern master
My silver coins

I leave them and waved to them
Bye my friends, we'll meet again
Hope you have a wonderful day too
Well I'm leaving on a gryphon
Don't know when I'll be back again
To see this place again

There's so many times I've flown around
From Ahn'qiraj to the northernmost town
It's Night Haven, Lake Elune'ara
With the song I sing to all
Either Horde or Alliance
About the world, the beauty of it all

Please hear me and sing with me
Love this place as it used to be
Roam the land while you care for Azeroth
While I'm leaving on gryphon
Don't know when I'll be landing soon
Oh babe, I hate to go

As we passed the Barrens' landscape
Under me
The hordes are battling
I close my eyes
I'm in Ashenvale
Trees that move beneath my feet
The leaves of purple, green in fleets
All is lost
All on Mount Hyjal

So hear me for this last time
I love this land for all my life
Please take care this land just for me
As I'm leaving on the gryphon
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

But I'm leaving on a gryphon
Don't know when I'll be owned again
Praise be Elune I'm here

Please note that the word Wyvern is not included. If you are however singing a Horde version, replace Gryphon with Wyvern.

No problem there, I don't play WoW, but this is very good. 555
