Ga Nomes is a gnomish drinking song apparently written by Mintiper Moonsilver as a 'thank you' to the gnomes of the High Forest who helped him to speed through the area via the Trail of Mists.

The song has inspired many bar brawls since it's first reported performance in 1344 DR and other gnomes have added their own verses in order to insult every audience.

The original goes as follows:

Ga ‘nomes went in, ga ‘nomes went out,

Now look at ga fields all about.

Ga men of course get all ga ‘lory,

Forgotten again, same old story!


(CHORUS)

We may be here, we may be there,

Like men of course we’re everywhere!

We may be fair, but so are elves,

Ga People, see, are just themselves!

We may be stout, but so are dwarves,

At least we’re not afraid of wharves!

We may be small, but so are hin,

At least we have hair on our chin!

We may be fierce, but so are orcs,

At least we do not taste like pork!

We may be here, we may be there,

Ga misty trail runs everywhere!


Ga ‘nomes went in, ga ‘nomes went out,

Now look at ga trees all about.

Ga elves of course get all ga ‘lory,

Forgotten again, same old story!


(CHORUS)


Ga ‘nomes went in, ga ‘nomes went out,

Now look at ga gems all about.

Ga dwarves of course get all ga ‘lory,

Forgotten again, same old story!


(CHORUS)


Ga ‘nomes went in, ga ‘nomes went out,

Now look at ga pipes all about.

Ga hin of course get half ga ‘lory,

Forgotten again, same old story!


(CHORUS)


Ga ‘nomes went in, ga ‘nomes went out,

Now look at nothing all about.

Ga orcs of course get all ga ‘ory,

Oops, not our fault, and not our story!


(CHORUS)
