Lady Flame
Lyrics and melody by Cat Faber 2018

You’re a corker, little Lady Flame
You’re a real loose cannon and you’ve got no shame.
You pretend you’re listening to what I say;
Then you go and do the thing your own darn way

But it does no good to sit and tear my hair
You can be annoying girl, but to be fair
Teaching’s like the granola biz
It’s the flakes that make it what it is!

The gravest rules you will defy
Then you think it’s fine because you didn’t die
You’ll break a finger playing fast and loose
And you’re endangering a century of shaky truce.

You want to help; you say it would be grand
While you play with forces you don’t understand
You’ll take your teacher to an early grave
Honey this. Is. Not. Your. World to save!

I write music about science fiction and fantasy subjects, commonly referred to as "filk."

I write much faster than I can record. Recent songs may be found at my website--the URL is given below.
