Mages have you ever met the Harperman before
No, of course you haven’t for you’re much too good, I’m sure;
You will be afraid of death if he should visit You,
He’s a great big killer, so I’ll tell you what to do
Hush, hush, hush, here comes the Harperman,
Don’t let him come close to You, he’ll catch you if he can.
Just pretend that you’re a rotting corpse
And you will find that Harperman will take another course.
Say Shoo Shoo and hide under the floor
Harperman will find another mage for him to gore
Say Hoo Hoo just like the owl’s song
Harperman will think you are a birdy all along
Hush, hush, hush, here comes the Harperman
Tell him you’ve got soldiers in your bed
For he will never guess that they are only in your head
Say Hush Hush, he’ll think that you’re asleep
If you make a lovely snore away he’ll softly creep
Sing this tune you travelers one and all
So Harperman may turn away,and we can drink alllll night!
