Wirt's Terrible Song

Ah wirt.png

Wirt's Terrible Song is a song that appears in "Songs of the Dark Lantern". Wirt sings this song after everyone in the Tavern demanded him to sing his love song even though Wirt had no idea what a love song was. Desperately, Wirt tried to make up a song that would satisfy the Tavern patrons.



My name is Wirt and his name is Greg

We're related cause my mom remarried and then gave birth to him with my step-dad

We're not from around here

Can you all give me

Some directions today

So we can be on our way


  • During production of this song, lyrics were written, but a melody was not, so that Elijah Wood would have to make it himself. Furthermore, creator Patrick McHale and Collin Dean (who played Greg) kept mocking him and chanting "Sing, lover, sing!," as the tavern customers did, to try and make him as uncomfortable as possible.
