The Hall of the mountain King..

Post by Bullet Magnet » Mon Oct 20, 2014 11:42 am

My parents did not want me to listen to my prefered music, but some of the classics I did enjoy. not all, but some..

I had this classical version of Hall of the Mountain King on an album called Finlandia when I was a child.
there were other nice tunes on that album, such as the Morning Suite...

Imagine my delight when Rainbow brought out their own version of THoTMK. :up

Welcome to my rather insane world... :cg

Mysteries of ages told, stories now will unfold
Tales of mystic days of old are hidden in these walls
Hear the witches play their tunes, sing their songs to the moon
As they play the night will move, in the hall of the mountain king
Wild child so innocent
You took that away
Thoughts of wonder and surprise hide themselves in your eyes
As the smoke begins to rise inside the mountain halls
Ancient tales of witches lore, answers lie through that door
All you'd ever want and more, is calling for you now
Through darkened corridors
Try but you cannot break free
You took her innocence
Now you will answer to me
I am the mountain king
Are you not afraid? I am the mountain king
Listen to the bells
In a midnight fantasy, more than any eye can see
Hear them laughing crazily, It's out of your control
Mysteries of ages told, stories now will unfold
Tales of mystic days of old are hidden in these walls
Through darkend passages
Run but you cannot escape
You took her innocence
And for this crime you must pay
I am the mountain king, are you not afraid?
I am the mountain king. . .

======================
The Silver Mountain. ? :cool:


There's a time for everyone, if they only learn
That the twisting kaleidoscope moves us all in turn.

Alas, my love, you do me wrong,
To cast me off discourteously.
For I have loved you well and long,
Delighting in your company.


Chorus:
Greensleeves was all my joy
Greensleeves was my delight,
Greensleeves was my heart of gold,
And who but my lady greensleeves.


Alas, my love, that you should own
A heart of wanton vanity,
So must I meditate alone
Upon your insincerity.


(Chorus)

Your vows you've broken, like my heart,
Oh, why did you so enrapture me?
Now I remain in a world apart
But my heart remains in captivity.


(Chorus)

If you intend thus to disdain,
It does the more enrapture me,
And even so, I still remain
A lover in captivity.


(Chorus)

I have been ready at your hand,
To grant whatever you would crave,
I have both wagered life and land,
Your love and good-will for to have.


(Chorus)

Thou couldst desire no earthly thing,
But still thou hadst it readily.
Thy music still to play and sing;
And yet thou wouldst not love me.


(Chorus)

I bought thee kerchiefs for thy head,
That were wrought fine and gallantly;
I kept thee at both board and bed,
Which cost my purse well-favoredly.


(Chorus)

I bought thee petticoats of the best,
The cloth so fine as it might be;
I gave thee jewels for thy chest,
And all this cost I spent on thee.


(Chorus)

Thy smock of silk, both fair and white,
With gold embroidered gorgeously;
Thy petticoat of sendal right,
And these I bought thee gladly.


(Chorus)

My men were clothed all in green,
And they did ever wait on thee;
All this was gallant to be seen,
And yet thou wouldst not love me.


(Chorus)

They set thee up, they took thee down,
They served thee with humility;
Thy foot might not once touch the ground,
And yet thou wouldst not love me.


(Chorus)

'Tis, I will pray to God on high,
That thou my constancy mayst see,
And that yet once before I die,
Thou wilt vouchsafe to love me.


(Chorus)

Ah, Greensleeves, now farewell, adieu,
To God I pray to prosper thee,
For I am still thy lover true,
Come once again and love me.


Greensleeves was all my joy
Greensleeves was my delight,
Greensleeves was my heart of gold,
And who but my lady greensleeves.
There's a time for everyone, if they only learn
That the twisting kaleidoscope moves us all in turn.
