The Origin of Unshackled
A long time ago and far, far away,
Much longer now than we’d like to say,
There lived a boy in the grip of apathy,
With a scowl on his face and hair down to the knee.
He scorned friendship and all greetings as well,
For he told everyone he met to go straight to hell.
Around this time came a girl from up high,
With song in her voice and joy in her eye.
The parents of the boy, with woe in their souls,
Approached the girl with an offer to propose.
If between she and the boy a friendship was made,
They’d be at peace – and she’d be well paid.
But problems there were, as there’s bound to be.
For social was she – but quiet was he.
He had music on the mind and she had song in her voice,
So together they made a most natural choice –
To band together, and so their duo was born.
Now she’s much richer, though he’s full of scorn.
There’s no topic their humble songs leave un-tackled,
So now we present the group called Unshackled!
