    Jack of the Shadows

    I was trying to find the lyrics to the the song "The Jack of the Shadows" that Mat's mercenary company sings in Robert Jordans Wheel of Time Books but haven't had any luck with google. Anyone know of a website that has it?

    Unfortunately not but thanks for trying. The small part I remember goes something like this:

    We'll toss the dice however the fall,
    and cuddle the girls be they short or tall,
    then follow young Mat wherever he calls,
    to dance with the Jack of the Shadows

    When asking a WoT question, makse sure you ask a WoTist :D Actually I don't remember. Go ask the hardcore WoTists at www.wotism.net in their General Discussion forum. It's set up the same as here (albiet an older version) so you'll have to register. No big deal though. Any WoT fan worthy of the name must accept they are the ones that know.

    And don't forget to check out the theories and answer my question on the Age of Legends weapons thread!

    We'll drink the wine till the cup is dry,
    And kiss the girls so they'll not cry,
    And toss the dice until we fly,
    To dance with Jack O' the Shadows.

    We'll dance all night until the moon runs free,
    And dandle the lasses upon our knee,
    And then you'll ride along with me,
    To dance with Jack O' the Shadows.

    We'll sing all night, and drink all day,
    And on the girls we'll spend our pay,
    And when it's gone, then we'll away,
    To dance with Jack O' the Shadows.

    There's some delight in ale and wine,
    And some in girls with ankles fine,
    But my delight, yes, always mine,
    Is to dance with Jack O' the Shadows.

    We'll toss the dice however they fall,
    And snuggle the girls be they short or tall,
    Then follow young Mat whenever he calls,
    To dance with Jack O' the Shadows.

    Re: Jack of the Shadows

    If we are going to practice necromancy, why can't it be more like Zelazny's Jack of Shadows?


    See y'all at the Dung Pits of Glyve! :yes:

    Love That Book thought of it from the title as well

    P. S.
    I met Roger Zelazny

    Signed a book I own.

    The best part is I met Phil K. Dick at the same time.

    The Book is Dies Irae



    and he signed as well.
