The song "By-Tor and the Snow Dog" by Rush from the gleebook "Fly By Night"

English[]

I. At The Tobes of Hades

The Tobes of Hades lit by flickering torchlight

The netherworld is gathered in the glare

Prince By-Tor takes the cavern to the northlight

The sign of Eth is rising in the air

By-Tor – Knight of Darkness –

Centurion of evil – Devil’s Prince!

II. Across the Styx

Across the River Styx out of the lamplight

His nemesis is waiting at the gate

The Snow Dog – ermine glowing in the dampnight

Coal black eyes, shimmering with hate

By-Tor and the Snow Dog

Square for battle, let the fray begin!

III. The Battle

i) Challenge And Defiance

ii) 7/4 War Furor

iii) Aftermath

iv) Hymn of Triumph

IV. Epilogue

The battle over and the dust is clearing

Disciples of the Snow Dog sound the knell

Rejoicing echoes as the dawn is nearing

By-Tor in defeat retreats to Hell

Snow Dog – is victorious!

The land of the Overworld is saved again! is saved again!

Anglish[]

I. At The Tobes of Helheim

The Tobes of Helheim lit by flickering brandlight

The netherworld is gathered in the glare

Lord By-Tor takes the hollow to the northlight

The mark of Eth is rising from his lair

By-Tor – Knight of Darkness –

Hundfrea of evil – Thyrce's Lord!

II. Beyond the Gjöll

Beyond the Ea Gjöll out of the pathlight

His deadly foe is waiting at the gate

The Snow Dog – mantle glowing in the damp night

Coal black eyes, shimmering with hate

By-Tor and the Snow Dog

Yark for battle, let the fight begin!

III. The Fight

IV. Afterword

The fight is over and the dusk is leaving

Loreknights of the Snow Dog toll the knell

Glad tidings ring out as the dawn is nearing

By-Tor, netherthrown, withdraws to Hel

Snow Dog – is the champion!

The land of the Overworld is sound again! is sound again!
