Wilson, Wilson Wilson, Wilson Wilson Once upon a time there was a mountain That rose out of a vast green forest And in the forest there were birds And lakes and rocks and trees and rivers The forest was also inhabited By a small group of people called the lizards The lizards were a simple people And they had lived in the forest undisturbed For thousands of years in utter peace and tranquility Once a year when spring came And the first blossoms began to show The lizards would gather at the base of the mountain To give thanks for all that they had They thanked the birds And they thanked the lakes and they thanked the rocks And the trees and the rivers But most importantly, they thanked Icculus Icculus lived at the top of the mountain Or at least everyone thought so For no one had actually ever seen him But they knew he existed Because they had the Helping Friendly Book Icculus had given the Helping Friendly Book To the Lizards thousands of years earlier as a gift It contained all of the knowledge Inherent in the universe And had enabled the Lizards To exist in harmony with nature for years And so they lived Until one day a traveler arrived in Gamehendge His name was Wilson And he quickly became intrigued By the Lizards way of life He asked if he could stay on And live in the forest And the Lizards, who had never seen an outsider Were happy to oblige Wilson lived with the Lizards for a few years Studying the ways of the Helping Friendly Book And all was well Until one morning when they awoke and the book was gone Wilson explained that he had hidden the book Knowing that the Lizards had become Dependent on it for survival He declared himself king And enslaved the innocent people of Gamehendge He cut down the trees and built a city Which he called Prussia And in the center of the city He built a castle And locked in the highest tower of the castle
