I saw a young maiden standing one day
on Fairhavens beach and my thoughts went astray.
As we lay in the sand, time flew by us
In the evening her father found us and cussed.

Sometimes it's good to be quick on your feet.
Sometimes life is not fair.
If your sword cannot save you,
Well friend let me tell you,
You’d give anything for a good pair.

Out into the world I went all alone,
met some bandits, they did seem quite strong.
"I’m stronger than you!" I laughed in their face.
They did not believe me, so I had to race.

Sometimes it's good to be quick ...

In the jungles, I met a tall blue man.
His sword seemed quite sharp, but I laughed at him.
He bent down to grab me - us Trykers are small,
I rammed my helmet right to his *cough*

Sometimes it's good to be quick ...

In the deep woods, I met a Matis.
Beautiful, wild and promising bliss.
That night at her home, the dress slid to the floor -
“she” was a man and me out the door.

Sometimes it's good to be quick ...

In Fyros I stopped at an tavern fine
I ate two whole yubos, drank three gallons wine.
The innkeep then asked me to pay the full fee
I didn't have money, so I had to flee.

Sometimes it's good to be quick ...

But the City Watch found me and took me to court
The judge said to me,: "I have no doubt!
You are in for imprisonment!
/shout: Guards, seize him! -
Now, did anyone see where he went?"

Sometimes it's good to be quick ...

Almost a year later I returned to my town,
A beautiful girl greeted me with a frown.
I said : “Pretty lady, what’s going on?!”
She held up a bundle: "This is your son."

Refrain (2 times):
Oooohhh, sometimes it's good to be quick ...

/em spoken as the melody trickles out …

So let me tell you, hear what I say.
If misfortune follows you ever which way.
Then run really fast, hard as it may be
for only he who’s alive today
can be a hero tomorrow.
/em winks: You see?
