Yes, I found all the ones I had collected from various forii. Here is a small smattering, including the Cone Warp, as mentioned at SWN tonight. There should be more.

Cone Warp

It's just standing
In the doorway
Maddening, as you can see.
But look more closely
And it might surprise you.
You, and the DRC.
I remember
Doing the Cone Warp
Shifting them through the planes
The DRC's gone now
But I hear my friends calling
Let's do the Cone Warp again! (x2)

CHORUS
It's just a kick to the left
And then a shove to the right
With your hands at your sides
You bring your knees in tight
But when it disappears
It really drives you insa-a-a-ane
Let's do the Cone Warp again! (x2)

What a feeling
You must admit it's appealing
To put a cone through the ceiling
The floor or the wall
To break the surface tension
Of another dimension
Kick it loose
And watch it fall

With a bit of a side-flip
Off it goes on its wild trip
And nothing can ever be the same.
Through hyperspatial displacement
They all end up in the basement.
Let's do the Cone Warp again! (x2)

Well I was walkin' in the Cavern just a-lookin' around
When I saw this evil thing sittin' there on the ground.
It shook-a-me up, it gave me quite a scare,
And I knew in a flash that it shouldn't be there.
I gave it a nudge and it went away
And I knew this was gonna be my lucky day!
Let's do the Cone Warp again! {x2}
CHORUS

(tap routine punctuated by eerie pops and whizzes as cones disappear in all directions)
Let's do the Cone Warp again! (x2)
CHORUS

The Very Model of a Cavern Representative

I am the very model of a Cavern Representative
Most consider me to be all knowing and articulative
I know the kings of D’ni and locations geographical
From Kerath’s Arch to Ae’gura in order typographical

I’ve travelled all the journeys and have studied Yeesha’s lifelong path
And turned the tables on a scary hammer wielding psychopath
I’m capable of solving every riddle D’ni ever had…
Whilst humming all of Larkin’s songs without going completely mad!

(Whilst humming all of Larkin's songs without going completely mad,
Whilst humming all of Larkin's songs without going completely mad,
Whilst humming all of Larkin's songs without going completely-pletly mad!)

I can calibrate and activate the Zero single handedly
And trap a crazy father without getting shot repeatedly
The point is most consider me quite friendly and attentive
This is why I am the very model of a Cavern Representative!

(The point is most consider him quite friendly and attentive
This is why he’s the very model of a Cavern Representative!)

I know precisely what is meant by Shorah and Korfah V’ja
And have tumbled through a fissure made entirely of shiny stars
I did not fall for Sharper’s tricks or Esher’s random mutterings
But watch intently all of Lewin’s monetary flutterings

I’ve trawled a dying world to help a young lass return to her home
And battled wits with Bahro using nothing but a lump of stone
I’ve spun inside a marble, trying to hold on to my sanity…
Not mentioning my conflicts with a brother’s inhumanity!

(Not mentioning his conflicts with a brother’s inhumanity,
Not mentioning his conflicts with a brother’s inhumanity,
Not mentioning his conflicts with a brother’s inhumani-manity!)

In fact it could be said my D’ni knowledge is exemplary
Quite simply put, the very best of this modern century
The point is most consider me quite friendly and attentive
This is why I am the very model of a Cavern Representative!

(The point is most consider him quite friendly and attentive
This is why he is the very model of a Cavern Representative!)

The Devil Went Down To Ae'Gura

The Devil went down to Ae'Gura
He was looking for some books to steal
And he was in a bind 'cause he was way behind
And he could barely hide his zeal

Well he caught his young boy Atrus
Writing worlds in nothin' flat
So Gehn jumped up and grabbed his son and said
"Boy let me tell you what:"

"I bet you didn't know it
But I'm a master writer too,
And if you care to take a dare
I'll make a bet with you."

"Now you write a pretty good linkin' book boy,
But give your dad his due.
Your soul I'll wage, against your age
'Cause I think I'm better than you."

The boy said, "Call me Atrus, Dad,
And it might be a sin
But I'll take your bet, your gonna regret
'Cause I'm the best that's ever been."

Atrus, better dip your pen and try to beat your dad
'Cause fiery abyss's broke loose in D'ni
And that Gehn is barking mad!
And if you win you'll hook up with that lovely Rivenese,
But if you lose, he'll bring you to your knees!

The devil Gehn took up his book
And he said, "I'll start this, then"
And fire flew from his fingertips
As he bent to dip his pen

He pulled the quill across the page
And it made an evil hiss
And random D'ni phrases fell
And it looked a little like this:

".kehn rehnahvah tso nuhdahtahv"

When Gehn was finished Atrus said,
"Well you're pretty good alright,
But sit down in that Wahrk-bone throne
And let me show you how to write!"

Conjure a mountain! Write, boy, write!
Gehn's in the house, but it's Atrus' night!
Write him a trap book! Think, boy, think!
He's taking the bait now, watch him link!

Well, Gehn just bowed his head
Because he knew that he'd been beat,
And Catherine hugged her Atrus
As the trapbook fell at their feet

Atrus said, "Dad, just don't come back
And never try again.
I told you once, you Son-of-a-Wahrk
I'm the best that's ever been!"

Conjure a mountain! Write boy, write!
Gehn's in the trap book, sealed in tight!
Jump in the fissure, Riven's dyin!
D'ni's still gone, but thanks fer tryin!

Bahronian Rhapsody

Is this the real life,
Is this just fantasy?
Link to a new Age,
To escape from reality
Look all around,
Look under the ground to see...
Just an explorer, Nobody other than me.
I'm just wandering, I see no foe,
in DRC, with Bahro..
Sorry little Yeesha, don't think I can decide for..
D'ni..

Greeting my friends below,
With Relto by my side,
I want to enjoy the ride..
Decisions, and choices made
Yet the cavern continues to survive so long
D'ni, ooooooo,
Didn't see before the fall,
If we just pull out by this time tomorrow,
Carry on, carry on, resume your quiet slumber...


And now, news from above..
Grab your book and grab your KI,
Cavern's open and it's free..
Hello, everybody, guess it got us all,
Gotta come down here, and go to heed the call..
Uru, ooooo, (with people in the caverns)
The cavern just won't die,
As long as we are here to continue on---

(Guitar)

I see an alley past a cone and a blockade,
DRC, DRC, will you open other ages?
Give us no way through here, so we make the user KI!
See the cones, obey the cones,
see the cones, obey the cones,
Kick the cones before you go.--For our protection--
I'm an explorer, marching through the city--
They're all explorers, hanging out, in city
Marvel at the wonders made by the D'ni..
User age, created age, will you let us go--
DRC no! We cannot let you go! - Let us go!
DRC no! We cannot not let you go -Let us go!
DRC We will not let you go! -Let us go!
Can not let you go - let us go!
Will not let you go - With bahro!
No, no, no, no, no, no no!
DRC, DRC, DRC please let us go
Cyan opened a up public shard of D'ni, D'ni, D'ni----

(quick guitar)
So you think it's over once the DRC leaves?
But the cavern still it lives and breathes!
Oh Yeesha, you opened the way Yeesha..
Just gotta go down, just gotta go down to D'ni!

(more guitar, then piano)

(oooh, Uru, Uru..)

There's fun down in the cavern, anyone can see..
There's fun down in the cavern, join us in the cavern,
D'ni....

Thanks, C'Jay

Grassie, the "Cone warp" is to the tune of "Time warp" from the Rocky Horror Picture Show

the Rocky Horror Picture Show is a cult classic.

Odd movie, but funny as heck!

Oh now it's ON! :P

I give you... The Dark Side of D'ni


Image

Breathe:

(Heartbeat sound effect)
Yeesha: I've been mad for flippin' years. Absolutely years. You've no idea how long... Working on ages and creating...
Phil: I've always been mad, I know I've been mad, like the most of us have. It's hard to explain when you're mad, even if you're not mad...
(Crescendo build up to opening chord, then that lovely, dreamy intro to the lyrics)


Breathe... the cavern air...
Don't be afraid to care...
Seek... What lays unseen...
Look around... Choose your own ground...

Long you'll search, and long you'll try.
The friends you make, the tears you cry.
All you take, and all you see...
Is all your life will ever be...

Run... Explorer, run...
Down that hole... Forget the sun...
And when at last the age is done...
Don't sit down, it's time to start another one...

Long you'll search, and high you'll climb...
But only if you ride the tide.
Jump over the barricade.
Race towards an early grave.


Time:
(Clocks all going off at the same time, then the cool building intro leading up to...)

Linking away the moments that make up a dull day.
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way.
Kicking around on a piece of gound in your Relto.
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way.

Tired of laying in Kemo sunshine, and just as tired of Relto's rain.
And you feel young and life is long, so there must be time to kill today.
And then one day you find, several ages have got behind you.
No one told you when to run... you missed the starting gun.

(One of the most awesome guitar solos EVER)

And you run and you run, to catch up with everyone, but you're slipping.
Falling behind, and starting all over again.
The cavern is the same, in a relative way, but you're older.
Shorter of breath, and one day closer to death.

Every age is getting shorter. Never seem to find the time.
And scraps of parchment you may find are just half a page of scribbled lines.
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the DRC way.
The time is gone. The song is over. Thought I'd something more to say...


Okay I'll finsh the rest when I get the chance. Right now its bedtime for me. Good job on yours Eleri, by the way.

If anyone sings and records these, I will play them for the Roof! party if you will let me. I like adding locally made music to the party, and have played the works of D'Lanor, LiquorCooChee and Thend. Let me know... You will, of course, get credit and if you show up we'll even bow. :) Just ask Thend...

This is a bit OOC, but I did a parody some time ago in honor of our two favorite puzzles from Revelation, both involving things on cables:

Cables
(To the tune of Curtains, with apologies to Peter Gabriel)

Oh, help me please
My hand has now gone lame
Tell me the secret
I can't finish this game

And there are sliders on our cables
They make me scream and shout
And there are mangrees on our cables
They won't throw fruit
The beast got out
