Alone at night<br>
 
With silver hair, a mithril sword, and hooded cloak –<br>
 
A ranger knight.<br>
 
He would keep so still, keep so still,<br>
 
But then suddenly he flew.<br>
 
 
 
I saw him in the trees beyond the castle wall<br>
 
Outside of town.<br>
 
He looked upon me with his owlish eyes of age<br>
 
And swooped right down.<br>
 
He took my hand, took my hand,<br>
 
Lead me off the forest path.<br>
 
 
 
:O Falel Fogelnacht,
 
:O Falel Fogelnacht,
 
:O Falel Fogelnacht,
 
:Fly!
 
 
 
He said his name was Fogelnacht the woodland elf,<br>
 
Or just Falel.<br>
 
He grabbed his bow, let fly a bolt, and slayed a beast;<br>
 
He shot so well.<br>
 
He soon lit a fire, lit a fire,<br>
 
Cooked and told me his dark tale.<br>
 
 
 
"A jealous prince once set all of these woods ablaze<br>
 
To capture me.<br>
 
The smoke brought tears for years whereas my horse and I<br>
 
Had tried to flee.<br>
 
My horse coughed and died, coughed and died;<br>
 
I escaped to hide in caves."<br>
 
 
 
:O Falel Fogelnacht,
 
:O Falel Fogelnacht,
 
:O Falel Fogelnacht,
 
:Fly!
 
 
 
"The prince had tried to woo a rich and lovely lass,<br>
 
But she loved me.<br>
 
So in a rage, he stabbed the king with arrow shafts<br>
 
He stole from me.<br>
 
The prince had me framed, had me framed,<br>
 
Now he sits upon the throne."<br>
 
 
 
"Although the queen has turned her love away from me,<br>
 
Her fate is sealed.<br>
 
Now as the forest has recovered from the blaze,<br>
 
My heart has healed.<br>
 
I must fly away, fly away."<br>
 
Then as the fire died, I ate and sighed and said:<br>
 
 
 
:O Falel Fogelnacht,
 
:O Falel Fogelnacht,
 
:O Falel Fogelnacht,
 
:Fly!
