The Rogue

The Rogue or "The Lay of Merellde and Typho"

The Rogue or "The Lay of Merellde and Typho" by Grand Master Yoda

Woe to you who gather here

Woe to you who gather here Hearken this tale and its morals

Woe to you who gather here Hearken this tale and its morals Of suffering borne of love and fear

Woe to you who gather here Hearken this tale and its morals Of suffering borne of love and fear And resting on one's laurels

Of Jedi families in their prime

Of Jedi families in their prime Of Jedha and it's industry

Of Jedi families in their prime Of Jedha and it's industry Of kaiburr rich in Illum's mines

Of Jedi families in their prime Of Jedha and it's industry Of kaiburr rich in Illum's mines Of mystics and monopoly

The patrons of Jedi nobility

The patrons of Jedi nobility Capul of Piagent and Monto of house Pall

The patrons of Jedi nobility Capul of Piagent and Monto of house Pall Finest crystals you'll ever see

The patrons of Jedi nobility Capul of Piagent and Monto of house Pall Finest crystals you'll ever see Endowed the Order one and all

But competition is fertile soil

But competition is fertile soil For the worst within our souls

But competition is fertile soil For the worst within our souls And noble lords who strive and toil

But competition is fertile soil For the worst within our souls And noble lords who strive and toil Exact the heftiest tolls

And so young Typho met Merellde

And so young Typho met Merellde Lust grew from lonely seeds

And so young Typho met Merellde Lust grew from lonely seeds The Force has powers some would herald

And so young Typho met Merellde Lust grew from lonely seeds The Force has powers some would herald From danger in sneaky deeds

They were rebuffed again and again

They were rebuffed again and again Pall and Piagent warred for a century

They were rebuffed again and again Pall and Piagent warred for a century The Dark and Light left their stain

They were rebuffed again and again Pall and Piagent warred for a century The Dark and Light left their stain On the Jedi Order's gentry

Monto died on Capul's saber

Monto died on Capul's saber And Typho did him in turn

Monto died on Capul's saber And Typho did him in turn Merellde swore to return the favor

Monto died on Capul's saber And Typho did him in turn Merellde swore to return the favor And so their blades would burn

For four straight days and four straight nights

For four straight days and four straight nights The lovers gave and took ground

For four straight days and four straight nights The lovers gave and took ground Then a message came from magical heights

For four straight days and four straight nights The lovers gave and took ground Then a message came from magical heights And struck their defenses down

"Stop your fight" the voice decried

"Stop your fight" the voice decried "For I need a mum and a daddy"

"Stop your fight" the voice decried "For I need a mum and a daddy" Typho froze and gave up his pride

"Stop your fight" the voice decried "For I need a mum and a daddy" Typho froze and gave up his pride And Merellde slew him sadly

"You fool" she cried "Why did you stop"

"You fool" she cried "Why did you stop" And embraced her lover once more

"You fool" she cried "Why did you stop" And embraced her lover once more She watched him die and her heart did drop

"You fool" she cried "Why did you stop" And embraced her lover once more She watched him die and her heart did drop Then picked herself up off the floor

She would live on for Typho's sake

She would live on for Typho's sake And his son who grew in her womb

She would live on for Typho's sake And his son who grew in her womb She would find a life to make

She would live on for Typho's sake And his son who grew in her womb She would find a life to make And leave pain in a desert tomb

But as she stood to leave the fade

But as she stood to leave the fade Typho's brother came a calling

But as she stood to leave the fade Typho's brother came a calling He cut her down with Typho's blade

But as she stood to leave the fade Typho's brother came a calling He cut her down with Typho's blade Submit to the darkness falling

Ajunta Pall did rise that day

Ajunta Pall did rise that day To fill the Galaxy with great sadness

Ajunta Pall did rise that day To fill the Galaxy with great sadness From Jedi love this is the lay

Ajunta Pall did rise that day To fill the Galaxy with great sadness From Jedi love this is the lay Of the Rogue and his dark madness ###
