Found an interesting link on "woad"... I wonder which thought is more frightening to SCA gentles.. the thought of fully armored men rushing to battle or the thought of rushing men clothed only in woad??  
 
At the page, the secondary link works better for downloading the tune than the Quicktime button.

Woad (to the tune "Men of Harlech")  
 
What's the use of wearing braces ?  
Vests and pants and boots with laces ?  
Spats and hats you buy in places  
Down the Brompton Road ?  
What's the use of shirts of cotton ?  
Studs that always get forgotten ?  
These affairs are simply rotten,  
Better far is woad.  
 
Woad's the stuff to show men.  
Woad to scare your foemen.  
Boil it to a brilliant hue  
And rub it on your back and your abdomen.  
Ancient Briton ne'er did hit on  
Anything as good as woad to fit on  
Neck or knees or where you sit on.  
Tailors you be blowed!!  
 
Romans came across the channel  
All dressed up in tin and flannel  
Half a pint of woad per man'll  
Dress us more than these.  
Saxons you can waste your stitches  
Building beds for bugs in britches  
We have woad to clothe us which is  
Not a nest for fleas  
 
Romans keep your armours,  
Saxons your pyjamas.  
Hairy coats were made for goats,  
Gorillas, yaks, retriever dogs and llamas  
Tramp up Snowdon with your woad on,  
Never mind if you get rained or blowed on  
Never want a button sewed on.  
Go it Ancient B's!!
