Gwadira

To the tune of Tom Jones' Delilah. Sorry, Tom.

I saw the light on the night that I've passed by her window
I saw the flickering shadows of love on her blinds
She was my woman
As she deceived 'em I watched and went out of my mind
Oh, my, my, my Gwadira!
Why, why, why, why Gwadira?
I could see that girl was no good for me
But I was lost like a slave that no man can free

At break of day when that orc rode away I was waiting
I crossed the street to her house and she opened the door
She stood there laughing
I felt the sword in my hand and she laughed no more
Oh, my, my, my Gwadira!
Why, why, why, why Gwadira?
So before they come to break down the door
Forgive me Gwadira I just couldn't take any more
Forgive me Gwadira I couldn't take any more.
