When I was a lad, my momma told me:
"Boy, your future is bright far as I can see.
You can live in the wasteland and waylay poor strangers,
Get fried by an elf mage or stabbed by a ranger."

I don't want goblin life,
Goblin life I flee.
I don't want goblin life,
No goblin life for me.

"If you live through that, then take a vacation.
You can make mass assault on a fortification.
Many die, it's true, your sisters and brothers,
But me and your aunties are here making others."

I don't want goblin life,
Goblin life I flee.
I don't want goblin life,
No goblin life for me.

"If you live long enough, then we'll let you marry
Your cousin Mathilda and her sister Wildberry.
War will seem easy after a night with those two.
Be a hero for goblins, that's what you will do."

I don't want goblin life,
Goblin life I flee.
I don't want goblin life,
No goblin life for me.

So I left for the city as soon as I could,
Elysia, T'Nanshi, Mikona's all good.
I sleep in the gutter, I sing for my beer,
But I am quite certain I'm better off here.

I don't want goblin life,
Goblin life I flee.
I don't want goblin life,
No goblin life for me.
