The oldest song in the world---older than God. Inspired by the novel "The Name of the Wind" by Patrick Rothfuss.


Tinker Tanner with eyes so bright,
he's in the square today,
but come tomorrow's morning light,
Tinker Tanner's on his way

TInker Tanner Came to town
his wares wherefore to sell
With pots and knives
for men and wives
and all array of meats
from Atur to the Ceal he brings
All the sweetest meats!

Tinker Tanner with eyes so bright,
he's in the square today,
but come tomorrow's morning light,
Tinker Tanner's on his way

Tinker Tanner Met a man
Who was 40 daughters high
and the man did the give the Tinker Shelter
From the Storming sky
Now many things a Tinker is
But to one there is no maybe
and nine months later
the Kind Old Man
Met 40 TInker Babies

Tinker Tanner with eyes so bright,
he's in the square today,
but come tomorrow's morning light,
Tinker Tanner's on his way

Well a Nobleman from Modheg
He cried out with Sorrow
for a pair of spectacles he lost
40 Span ago
He searched his entire castle grounds
From his bailey to his Bed
But one place he never thought to look
for they sat upon his head

Tinker Tanner with eyes so bright,
he's in the square today,
but come tomorrow's morning light,
Tinker Tanner's on his way

Well a Drunk in a bar met a lass
who said she'd never wed
and he offered her a drink to share
and soon they shared a bed
And when the tupping stopped
the man admitted
he never knew his father
but if he had, he might have known
She was his Father's only daughter!
