Titanic...

Back when I was a Cub Scout and Webelo attending summer camp, we would regularly get together and sing those dreaded campfire songs. They were horrible. Cheesy. Dare I say campy (pun fully intended).

Thankfully, I've forgotten most of them.

However, one stanza of a song called "The Titanic" has always stuck with me...

The moral of the story, as you can plainly see
Is to wear a life preserver when you go out to sea.
The Titanic didn't make it across the rolling sea.
It was sad when the great ship went down.
(It was sad! It was sad! It was sad!)
It was sad when the great ship went down.

To this day I cannot fathom why they would sing this at a place where they're teaching boating safety and trying to assuage fears about the water.

But I digress.

For whatever reason, when watching this week's episode of Game of Thrones (the so-called "Purple Wedding"), I was reminded of that bit of the song and actually rewrote the words to work with the show.

Oh, but first...

Don't say I didn't warn you.

Oh, and not only did I rewrite it, I rewrote it twice! Oh you're in for a treat. Or two.

The moral of the story, as you can plainly see,
Is to never marry Margaery if you prefer to breathe.
Though she didn't kill directly, it's a wicked web she weaves.
Who'll be next to be dead husband number three?
(Who'll be next? Who'll be next? Who'll be next?)
Who'll be next to be dead husband number three?

And here's version two...

The moral of the story, as you can plainly see,
Is to never marry Margaery if you prefer to breathe.
Renly and Joffrey didn't last much longer after wedding thee.
It was sad to see poor Renly going down.
(But not Joffrey! But not Joffrey! But not Joffrey!)
It was sad to see poor Renly going down.

I've got too much time on my hands, don't I?

Be happy. I almost did this as an audio recording so you could hear me sing it. Talk about scary.
