Lyric ©2001 Jeff Bohnhoff

We all came to the filk con
‘Neath the great Columbus skyline.
To make music ‘til the wee hours.
We didn’t have much time.
Tom Smith and all the mundanes
Were at the best place around.
But some woman with a tight bun
Said the music was too loud.

Filk in the lobby
Sing “Fire in the Sky”.
Filk in the lobby.

They shut down the concert hall,
Claimed it made an awful sound.
Stevie Mac was running all around
Pulling SMOFS off the ground.
When it all was over
We had to find another place.
But filk time was running out.
It seemed that we would lose the race.

Filk in the lobby
Sing “Fire in the Sky”.
Filk in the lobby.

We ended up in the main lobby.
Had to face some cold hard stares.
But Heather took a stand on the concert grand
Making her music there.
When the local cops tried to clear the place
We looked them in the eye.
We sang to the tune she played:
“How many of them can we make die?”

Filk in the lobby
Sing “Fire in the Sky”.
Filk in the lobby.

One way or another, their music will create strong emotions. Jeff and Maya have been creating music together since 1979, and plan to continue for some time to come. ... more
