So long ago in Settmour Swamp
In kingdom of the East
A dragon menaced one and all
That foul and crafty beast

It ate up all the mutton meat
And drank up all the mead
Oh, who shall save our barony
In this, its time of need?

Merlynia was our ruler then
From Rivenoak in Wales
She’d fought the Romans handily
Her courage never fails

At last she faced the dragon green
But not with sword or shield
She beat the beast most viciously
With leek found in a field

And so in days of darkness deep
When things were looking bleak
Merlynia saved her barony
When she took a leek.
