Every year at Dragoncon we have a tradition of InstaFilk where we ask that our fans come and join in to create a filk from scratch in an hour. This year we had quite possibly the smoothest and quickest workshop, using “Yellow Submarine” as our base to tell the story all about the Dragon Con Parade. Many, many thanks to Tally Deushane, Ian O’Donnell and Andrew McKee for their musical assistance!

Listen to the audio here (Coming Soon!), and check out below for the YouTube video!

Dragon Con Parade

If you’ve been to Dragon Con

Then you know of what goes on

All the streets they barricade

for the Yearly Con Parade

 

When they closed up all the roads

There was nowhere left to go

So we found somewhere to wait

for the Dragon Con Parade

 

We’re all stuck at the Dragon Con Parade

The Dragon Con Parade

And our friends, who all cosplay

Have come out to march today

Cantina band begins to play…. {recorder interlude}

 

We’re all here for the Dragon Con Parade
