about

This was inspired by someone else's character in a game I was in. The chorus popped out when the Pooka did something particularly crazy, and the Pooka's player liked it so much I finished the song a few days later.

lyrics

Sweet and fickle and quick and lazy,
She's big trouble, and a royal pain.
Damn if the pooka don't drive me crazy;
Damn if the pooka don't keep me sane.

I am fast but she is faster;
Wonder how she managed that.
She just laughed when I first asked her--
"All you need is a hob-stitched hat!"

I had heard in myth and rumor
Who might come to take my part;
Got no sense but a sense of humor;
Got no fear but a Firbolg heart.

The title "friend" I would afford her;
There's no finer in a fight.
Should you deign to give an order
She'll do the opposite--just for spite.
