Lyrics

I was told once, by a friend of mine,
She had seen an olden sign,
Said she was not from this time,
And did I feel the same?
So I told her, "Yes", I knew her fear
As I felt the truth draw near
Told her back three hundred years,
Was the time that I held dear...

Gather lords and ladies fair,
Come with me to the Renaissance Faire
Hurry now,
We're almost there...
Fa, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la...

Through the shroud of mystery,
Turn a page of history,
Feeling more than you can see,
Down at the Renaissance Faire.
Hear the minstrels play their tunes,
They will play the whole night through,
Special songs for me and for you,
And anyone whose heart is true...

Gather lords and ladies fair,
Come with me to the Renaissance Faire
Hurry now,
We're almost there...
Fa, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la...

There's too many stars for one sky to hold,
Some will fall, others are sold,
As the fields turn to gold
Down at the Renaissance Faire...

Gather lords and ladies fair,
Come with me to the Renaissance Faire
Hurry now,
We're almost there...
Fa, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la...

Gather lords and ladies fair,
Come with me to the Renaissance Faire
Hurry now,
We're almost there...
Fa, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la...

Gather lords and ladies fair,
Come with me to the Renaissance Faire
Hurry now,
We're almost there...
Fa, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la...
Fa, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la...
Fa, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la...

Trad. by Tielman Susato, Blackmore, Night

Review

Running to 4 minutes 16 seconds, the 9th track from the 1997 debut album Shadow of the Moon is based rather loosely on "Basse Danse Bergeret" by Tielman Susato, one of Ritchie Blackmore's favorite Medieval composers. His adaptation and the lyrics by Candice transform it into what would become a rather typical and beautiful Blackmore's Night song in the years to come.
