    1. Would daenerys and the targaryend consider playing these? (Sorry for not resistent the urge to repost)

      Had some positive response on my Coldplay inspired “Flayin’ Alive” effort by Ramsey and Theon. (See comment section http://watchersonthewall.com/the-cast-of-game-of-thrones-goes-musical-for-red-nose-day/)
      So got inspired to do another one. based on “the gift” here is Sam (As Beyoncé) and Gill-Y (as Jay Z) doing their version of “crazy in love”

      “Crazy In Love”i
      (feat. Gill-Y)

      [Intro:]
      [Gill-Y:]
      Yes!
      It’s so crazy right now!
      Most incredibly, it’s ya bae, Sam.
      It’s ya bae, boy.
      [Sam:]
      You ready?
      Oh my, oh my, oh my, oh no no
      Oh my, oh my, oh my, oh no no
      Oh my, oh my, oh my, oh no no
      Oh my, oh my, oh my, oh no no

      [Gill-Y:]
      Yea, Westeros in the making,
      Season 5, it’s so crazy right now

      [Verse 1: Sam]
      I looked and stared into your Wildling eyes,
      Then these bros came for some sexy time
      wanted to fight – you told me not to go
      Lucked out with help of some dog called ghost

      But I was winning as I tried to explain,
      Still you saying my pride is the one to blame.
      ‘Cuz I clearly can’t swing a sword with either hand.
      But your love just clearly wants to make me pretend.

      [Chorus: Sam]
      Got me acting so crazy right now, (you are)’
      Wildling from a keep blond the wall
      Tarly coming to save you right now
      Even with my legs shaking right now (in love)

      Love you more than on paper right now (i am)
      Wasted Cuz they got me beat on the ground
      Acting so crazy in love’s
      Got me looking, got me looking so crazy in love.

      Oh my, oh my, oh my, oh no no
      Oh my, oh my, oh my, oh no no
      Oh my, oh my, oh my, oh no no
      Oh my, oh my, oh my, oh no no

      [Verse 2: Sam (Gill-Y):]
      When I talk to my brothers quietly,
      Who she think she is? What the Wildling done to me,
      You sweep the floors oh so adequately
      You sow this crow’s clothes make it look easy

      The way you made me break the vows I once knew,
      book pages I skip while staring you,
      But I still don’t understand,
      Just how your love can do what no one else can.

      [Chorus: Sam]
      Got me looking so crazy right now, (your touch)
      Willy feels kinda shaky right now, (not sure)
      I know where to place it right now
      Can’t believe what George called it right now (tell me!)
      Can’t believe I got laid just right now (your love’s)
      got me breaking all of my vows (oh my)
      Acting so crazy in love’s
      Got me looking, got me looking so crazy in love.

      [Verse 3: Gill-Y:]
      Check it, let’s go
      I’m tough coz you know I grew up in the Keep
      Craster’s daughter, but still keeping it real, (oh my)
      share daddy issues, but those are just our least woes.
      You’re Sam the Slayer, no halfling with hairy toes,
      You kick white walker butt with dragon glass
      Be proud brother shake that dragon ass.
      But your best weapon is a fat pink mast. (oh my!)
      You give the best lovin’ I ever had.

      Tough like Tormund, but cwith bears I don’t sleep
      Rabbits beyond the wall is all I keep,
      Gill-Y flower, crazy and deranged,
      They can’t figure me out they like hey is she insane, (oh my)
      No commander I don’t wear no black,
      I survived mole’s town so cut me some slack.
      Oh my, oh my, oh my, oh no no

      Been dealing with white walkers,
      I prefer my Sam to all these smooth talkers
      (Oh my, oh my, oh my, oh no no)
      He’ll care for my babe till the game’s over,
      (Oh my, oh my, oh my, oh no no)
      Sam II, one day will grow and sit the iron throne
      (Oh my, oh my, oh my, oh no no)
      By Book 7 the game’s been wrap, One!

      [Bridge: Sam]
      Got me feeling, a player, my baby
      I’m not myself, lately, i’m bookish, I don’t do this,
      We’re not showing skin, baby but I don’t care
      ‘Cuz wildlings know nothing on underwear,
      Gilly you’re making a man out of me,
      Daddy would not believe it even if he could see,
      ‘Cuz baby you got me, you got me, so crazy baby
      HEY!

      [Chorus: Sam:]
      Don’t think of being a Maester right now
      Won’t be building my chain just right now
      Wanna be saving your baby right now
      Got me thinking I’ll take you down south

      Got to think I’m a player right now (your love’s)
      Doin’ fifty shades of Baelish right now, (in love)
      Acting so crazy in love,
      Got me looking, got me looking so crazy in love.

      Got me acting so crazy right now, (our love’s)
      Made “inside the episode” now (in love)
      Don’t touch on all that rapin’ right now
      ENuf’ debate with the people online

      Want to care for your baby right now
      Why that kid still not aging right now
      Acting so crazy in love,
      Got me looking, got me looking so crazy in love.

    2. Hey, as long as you’re open to fan songs, I’ll repost this I wrote:

      

      “The House of Black And White” (lyrics changed from “House of the Rising Sun” by The Animals)

      There is a house in Braavos
      Upon a knoll of dark grey stone
      And it’s been the home of many a god
      Of many faces, but no one

      My mother was a high born lady
      She slew a fool in grief
      My father was a king’s right hand
      I’m just a beggar and a thief

      Now the only thing a girl needs
      Is a needle and thread
      And the only time she’s satisfied
      Is when her death list is said

      [Alternate version either substitute or add:
      And the only time she can sleep
      Is after her death list is said]

      [Organ Solo]

      Oh brothers tell your direwolves
      Not to take on more than you can bite
      Don’t lose your name or your face
      In the House of Black and White

      Well, nothing is just nothing
      I’m tired of being on the run
      I’m goin’ on to Braavos
      To swear service to no one.

      There is a house in Braavos
      Doors of ebony and weirwood
      And it’s been the home of many a god
      Of many faces, but no one.
