Johnny Cash: I've been Everywhere (I've fought everything)[edit]

I was totin' myself
Along the dusty Greyhawk southern road
When along came a party
With a halfling, dwarf, elf, and a gnome
"If you're headin’ down to Greyhawk, bard
With us you can ride."
So I climbed into the cart
And then I settled down inside
They asked me if I'd seen a group
That could dish out so much pain
And I said,
"Listen Bud,
I've battled Every beast on our home plane."
I've fought everything, man
I've fought everything, man
Heard a harpy sing, man
I've tanked the stirge’s sting, man
Battle’s kinda my thing, man
I've fought everything.

Foster the People: Pumped Up Kicks (murderhobos)[edit]

Fighter's got a strong arm
He'll slaughter the whole room, he won't care who he harms
He's got a brewed health potion
Tied to his hip he’s an adventurer
Yeah found a magic great axe
In some dragon’s big hoard, oh in a room of fun toys
I don't even know what
But he's coming for you, yeah he's coming for you
All the other fiends with the magic things
You'd better dash, better dash, outdash my axe
All the other fiends with the magic things
You'd better dash, better dash, faster than my downswing
All the other fiends with the magic things
You'd better dash, better dash, outdash my axe
All the other fiends with the magic things
You'd better dash, better dash, faster than my downswing
The DM works a long day
we be playin’ too late, and he's playin’ too late
but he's bringing me a surprise
'Cause snacks’re in the pickup and they're wrapped in bags
I've waited for a long time
Yeah the crit of my roll is now a strong weapon blow
I reason with my health potion
And say your head's on fire, you must have lost your spells, yeah
All the other fiends with the magic things
You'd better dash, better dash, outdash my axe
All the other fiends with the magic things
You'd better dash, better dash, faster than my downswing
All the other fiends with the magic things
You'd better dash, better dash, outdash my axe
All the other fiends with the magic things
You'd better dash, better dash, faster than my downswing

[run, run, run, whistling]

All the other fiends with the magic things
You'd better dash, better dash, outdash my axe
All the other fiends with the magic things
You'd better dash, better dash, faster than my downswing
All the other fiends with the magic things
You'd better dash, better dash, outdash my axe
All the other fiends with the magic things
You'd better dash, better dash, faster than my downswing
All the other fiends with the magic things
You'd better dash, better dash, outdash my axe
All the other fiends with the magic things
You'd better dash, better dash, faster than my downswing
