  • A book of poetry compiled over two years of Marc Gunn, lead singer of the Brobdingnagian Bards. It was written during one of my prolific times of writing.

    "I got Bella Filiocht in the mail yesterday, I couldn't put it down. It's profound in a word, but to stop there would sell it short. It's beautiful, and deep, heartfelt and funny, all at once. I read the whole thing before I went to sleep."

lyrics

Of all the money that ere I had, I spent it in good company.
And of all the harm that ere I've done, alas was done to none but me.
And all I've done for want of wit, to memory now I cannot recall.
So fill me to the parting glass. Goodnight and joy be with you all.

Of all the comrades that ere I had, they're sorry for my going away,
And of all the sweethearts that ere I had , they wish me one more day to stay,
But since it falls unto my lot that I should rise while you should not,
I will gently rise and I'll softly call, "Goodnight and joy be with you all!"

Oh, if I had money enough to spend and leisure time to sit awhile
There is a fair maid in this town that sorely has my heart beguiled
Her rosey cheeks and ruby lips, she alone has my heart in thrall.
So fill me to the parting glass. Goodnight and joy be with you all.
