Beautiful Crota, Bountiful World (England Dance, revived)

This is a revised edition of one of my old songs, England Dance, but this edition is for the city of Crota (the setting in the Dragonboys). It is meant to be sung to Shimotsuki's island song, Hartes Ciel Melenas Walyasye: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fNBeO0...

That has to be the catchiest folk song I've ever heard.

Beautiful Crota, Beautiful World (England Dance)

The world is busy arranging life.
Your head hurts with no ease.
You wonder where the world has gone as you skim the beads of sand.
Everyone's life feels so devoid.
You feel you're ready to go.
Your heart stumbles upon a closed Arthurian city.

Shops were busy, dancers pranced about.
Streamers were hung and children gleefully cried out.
Thirty seven baby wasps were set free while the cicadas sang in the trees.
Hearts were strummed to the tune of a pitched violin.
Drums and tambourines produced such great sounds.
Everyone wanted to dance to and fro...

They say, "so be a good ol' chap and good things will come to thee."
You say, "I'll lead you my way in this English dance so that you will know."
The flowers are hung on signs, dropships paint in the cloudy skies.
Everybody joins hands, singing the song of love.

The air of the sea, so pristine and clean.
Music fills your ears, carrying you about.
(The air of the sea whisks you away and digital billboards show the time.)
Flags hang from the old house and you look to see if their hearts be true.
Pantomimes mime and plays are played out. People dance to and fro.
Puffs of green smoke shoot from the Grand Palace.
You see the food, so delicious and tame.
You wish to eat, such sweet smells make your interest piqué.
Sleepy horses pull carriages and shopkeepers sweep their dusty doorsteps.
The voices of girls makes men weep and the voices of boys make women swoon
The beat of the drums make your heart sing, and happily you dance to and fro

So be a very good ol' chap, many good things come to thee
I'll lead you my way in this English dance so that you will know
The cicadas fly to heaven, ponies trot in endless glee
Everybody join hands, come on and sing the song of everlasting love.

Hundreds of boats fill the ancient sea (a hundred boats fill the sacred sea).
Love has kicked you in the ass (love is a repeat offender).
The world you see is diverse and abound (the world is diverse, cultural and abound).
Nighttime brings madness (sadness and madness strike the town. Nobody told me what to do).
Nobody told me what to do.

Their mouths spit such lies in a sea (their lies are numerous like the sea).
Behind every smile is a pet peeve (behind the smile is detest towards you and me).
Children gleefully cry out (Dragon-children painfully cry out).
The world wrestles us both (the world wrestles us both).
Nobody told me where to go!

The melody of their hands create a beat, they hop and skip like people do.
The strum of the guitar makes you dance to and fro.
So be a very good ol' chap, many good things come to thee
I'll lead you my way in this English dance so that you will know
The dragons fly from heaven, dropships make their paintings glow
Everybody join hands, come on and sing the song of love everlasting.
This is life in Crota.
This is life in the King's myriads of love.
This is life...in that secret cove.

Tralala
Tralala

Shimotsuki has a lot of musical talent! She has even written a few dark songs that I'm thinking of using for the dragon spire OST.
