Killing Cassandra
by Lillian Wolfe

tune: Waltzing Mathilda

Once a fan fic writer sat by her TV set,
Watching Immortals, one—two—three,
And she raged as Cassandra tried to kill her favorite one,
"I’ll come a-killing Cassandra for you."

chorus:
Killing Cassandra, killing Cassandra,
I’ll come a-killing Cassandra for you,
(repeat the third line of the verse)
I’ll come a-killing Cassandra for you.

In front of her keyboard, inspired now, this writer sat,
Pounding out words, both mean and cruel,
And she hummed as the scene grew upon the little screen,
"I'll come a-killing Cassandra for you."

chorus (don't forget to change the 3rd line!)

She plotted, she planned, put a sword in the hero's hand,
"Let Mac kill the witch," said she with glee.
When the dirty deed was done, Methos was the righteous one.
"I'll come a-killing Cassandra for you."

chorus

Smugly she posted, put the tale out on the 'net,
Opened up other tomes, one-two-three,
Eyes spreading wide, she giggled in shocked surprise,
They were all killing Cassandra with glee.

Killing Cassandra, killing Cassandra,
We’ll come a-killing Cassandra for you,
Eyes spreading wide, she giggled in shocked surprise,
We’ll come a-killing Cassandra for you.
