Four Days of GenCon

I listen to and enjoy all kinds of music. Sometimes my creativity gets the better of me and I come up with alternate lyrics for a song. There have been many over the years, but this is the newest:

 

Four Days of GenCon
(Parody Lyrics by W. Scott Grant, to the tune Four Walls of Raiford by Lynyrd Skynyrd)

Well them four days of GenCon, closing in on me
Gonna go do some gaming, in downtown Indy
I have two events a-planned, and generic tickets too
I’ll stand in line at will call, maybe I’ll see you

I have cosplay on my mind, dressed up for a theme
But there’s others here a-waitin’, I just don’t know their meme
Klingons and Storm Troopers, girls with blue hair
Oh Lord please forgive me, I cannot help but stare

And I’m comin’ down to play some Magic
Some boardgames and role play
Please take mercy on this gamer
I hope I’ll do okay

Well the vendor hall is open, Oh Lord, please let me in
I have thirty minutes to wander, and a hundred bucks to spend
Now there’s a game I like, I’ll play the demo first
There’s one I want to try, these decisions are the worst

Now Friday night is over, I played Werewolf ’till dawn
Get back to the vendor hall, and the hot games are all gone
Gonna watch a show tonight, in the Crown Plaza room
From there it’s the Stadium, and the old True Dungeon doom

And I’m comin’ down to play some Magic
Some LARPing and cosplay
Please take mercy on this gamer
I hope I’ll do okay

On Sunday the gaming’s over
I’ll head home with a tear
I spent my four days at GenCon
I’ll be back again next year
