John Strife Not everyone will understand at first listening, but while being a great and catchy medieval tavern style song, it's lyrics are also very actual and meaningful: many men and women, desperately in search for "love", end up starting love affairs with "monsters" (on the inside, more than aesthetically), and while they initially think they've found happiness, these monsters end up eating their entire lives, and it was their choice only to allow the monster to do so.

Don't be like the farmer.

EliChan Neko Like so many of Miracle of Sound's songs, this one seems to sprout directly in its game world rather than talking about it from a distance, an authentic drinking song from The witcher universe and I absolutely love the feeling of the folk songs I listen to since when I was a child

Christian Kastaun This is hilarious and I want the feature to build a home with a big old troll to be a feature in the upcoming Witcher game. We all know Geralt's got the ploughing down, so the developers are half way there.

Also the song is really catchy.

Ploughing A Troll Gavin Dunne 2013

There once was a farmer from old Flotsam town
Who was tired of sowing his seeds on the ground
He went for a wander and walked till the dawn
Till a wanton old she troll he stumbled upon

And a hey-ho he's ploughing a troll!
The gods only know how the key fits the hole
Around in the stinking great den they did roll
And a hey-ho he's ploughing a troll!

The farmer he knew it was love at first sight
They ploughed through the morning and into the night
With teeth rotten black and a rank leather hide
This hideous creature his bestial bride

And a hey-ho he's ploughing a troll!
The gods only know how the key fits the hole
A cavernous cave for his puny old pole
And a hey-ho he's ploughing a troll!

After time his excitement it started to droop
He groaned at her farts and her cold onion soup
The troll fixed his eye with a scowl made of stone
And when the guards came around all they found were his bones

And a hey-ho he was ploughing a troll!
The gods only know how the key fit the hole
No burial mound and no rest for his soul
Because hey-ho he was ploughing a troll!


And a hey-ho he was ploughing a troll!
The gods only know how the key fit the hole
A dirty auld tale from the bed to the bowl
Because hey-ho he was ploughing a troll!
