After TLD "in the original Shakespeare" (see this thread http://www.ajb007.co.uk/topic/45192/timothy-dalton-best-actor-to-play-bond/page/7/) which has been popular both here and on mi6, I've been asked to do another one and here it is:

HE OF THE GILDED FINGER

    Excellent as always, we'll all be " slapping our thighs" tonight in a hearty
    Elizabethan manner, with a tankard of ale. :)) , as Barbel is a wandering
    Minstrel, perhaps he could make use of the lyrics to Guilded Finger !


    Guildedfinger
    He's the sir, the sir with the Midas touch
    A spider's touch
    Such a cold digit
    Beckons thee to enter his web of sin
    But don't wend in.
    Golden words that gent wilt pour in thy ear
    But his lies can't disguise what thee fear
    For a golden wench knoweth at which hour he's kissed that lady
    It's the kiss of death from.
    Mister Guildedfinger
    quaint wench beware of this heart of gold
    This heart is cold.
    that gent loves only gold
    Only gold
    that gent loves gold
    that gent loves only gold
    Only gold
    that gent loves gold

    Willst thou write yet another play, sir Barbel? The Yeoman with the Gilded Crossbow, perchanse? The Tale of the Falling Sky? The Royal Gambling Tavern?

    Thanks, guys. :)

    Nice suggestions, Number 24, especially The Royal Gambling Tavern. I was thinking perhaps of "Ye Ball Of Thunder" or "Thou Twice Shalt Live" next. My favourite bits are the Q scenes, they just lend themselves to this treatment.

    Was there ever a more Shakespearian character than Sheriff Pepper? :))

    Britt Ekland and Denise Richards are also paractically ripped from the pages of the Bard....

    Ye only liveth twice !

    thee only liveth twice or so forsooth
    One life for yourself and one for thy dreams
    thee drift through the years and life seemeth tame
    Till one dream appeareth and love is it's name

    And love is a stranger who'll beckon thee on
    Don't bethink of the danger or the stranger is gone.

    This dream is for thee, so payeth the price
    maketh one dream cometh true, thee only liveth twice

    And love is a stranger who'll beckon thee on
    Don't bethink of the danger or the stranger is gone

    This dream is for thee, so payeth the price
    maketh one dream cometh true, thee only liveth twice.

    Thunderthball.

    that gent at each moment runneth while others walketh.
    that gent acts while other men just talk.
    that gent looks at this world, and wanteth t all,
    So that gent strikes, like Thunderthball.
    that gent knoweth the meaning of success.
    His needeth art more, so that gent giveth less.
    those gents calleth that gent the winner who doth take all.
    And that gent strikes, like Thunderthball

    Any mistress that gent wanteth, he'll receiveth.
    that gent wilt breaketh any heart without regret.
    His days of asking art all gone.
    His square goeth on and on and on.
    But that gent thinkest that the square is worth t all.
    So that gent strikes like Thunderthball

    Ye other way to kicketh the bucket.

    Another ringer with the slick trigger digit
    For that lady Majesty
    Another one with the golden tongue
    Poisoning thy fantasy
    Another bill from a killer turned a thriller
    To a tragedy

    Yeah
    A door hath left ope
    A mistress walking by
    A drop in the water
    A behold in thy eye
    A phone on the table
    A sir on thy side
    Or someone that thee bethink that thee can trust
    It's just
    Another way to kicketh the bucket

    Another tricky little gun giving solace to the one
    That'll nev'r see the sun shine
    Another inch of thy life sacrificed for thy brother
    In the nick of time
    Another filthy wage heaven hath sent honey
    Turning on a dime

    Another wench with that lady digit on the world
    Singing to thee what thee wanna heareth
    Another gun thrown down in surrender
    tooketh hence thy fear
    Another sir thither that gent standeth right behind thee
    Looking in the mirror

    It's just another
    It's just another
    It's just another way
    Shoot 'em up, bang bang
    ho ho
    It's just another
    Yeah Yeah.

    I crave thy pardon. Whilst thou tell the tale of the jolly Roger and the Inn of the Eight Cats? I hear the Inn of the Eight Cats was not far yonder from the Isle of Maidens. Legend hath it that the jolly Roger leaped through the trees reciting "Cry God for Harry, England and St George". To thy ear cries bull, but stranger truths can tell.

    Wager which play thine quote accompanies ?

    " So as charming as thee art, Mr. Bond... I'll keepeth mine eyes on our government's wage and off thy perfectly formed arse "

    " Now the whole world wilt knoweth that thee hath kicked the bucket scratching mine balls "

    " So thee wanteth me to beest half-monk, half-hitman "

    " Arrogance and self-awareness seldom wend handeth in handeth "

    " thee knoweth, I nev'r hath understood all these elaborate tortures. It's the simplest thing... to cause more pain than a sir can possibly endure. And of course, it's not only the immediate agony, but the knowledge that - if 't be true thee doth not yield soon enough - thither wilt beest little hath left to identify thee as a sir. The only question remains: wilt thee yield, in time "

    Me thinketh the play is The Royal Gambling Tavern, a most celebrated tale of the theatre.

    Thee art correct in thy thinking valorous sir {[]
    Now off to yon Tavern for a night of Wenching and Wagering. :))

    Wise choise, good sir! My mind is set on visiting the tavern "The Quiet Arrow and the Maiden's Undergarment" later as the night grows dark. Will you noble gentlemen join me then?

    The SABS you speak of is said to be a house of ill repute, but sadly not the type of ill repute the Church frowns upon :#

    Barbel, that's a genius piece of writing! -{ I loved "And call me Shirley not" and "A Naughty Man" pmsl ! :)) :))

    Perhaps this should also be a separate thread, but which Bond PTS has the lines:

    Lady Miles: "Good sire, speakeast thou with Sir James and render him withdrawn from this field of battle".
    Master of the Fleet: "Good Lord, in what vain pursuit is Sir James presently exercised?"
    Lady Miles, "Admiral, though it vex him, surely he doth conduct his job".
    Sir James doth toil to defeat his foe and, with haste, depart in said vanquished warrior's winged chariot.
    Sir James: "My lady, may it please thee to beg thine Admiral, whither shall he wish these cannonballs be laid?"
    :007) :)
    "How was your lamb?" "Skewered. One sympathises."
  • ThunderpussyThunderpussy Behind you !Posts: 63,697MI6 Agent
    Tis, a faleshood your ears have heard good sir, The Tavern of which you speaketh is nay
    more that a Gentlemans club and libation purveyor of the finest ales and stouts. Tis
    placed between, Ye olde Kebab shoppe and a master wagers Emporium.

    Nay, good sir, from the previous play they doth be. Lovely stuff, C&D, when I get a bit of time (which is not today) I'll start on another- please everyone keep doing random lines and they can be fitted in.
