The Stalker is coming to town

This is actually a really interesting contest! 

Here Comes Santa Claus by Gene Autry

Here Comes Stalker

Spoiler

Here comes Stalker, here comes Stalker

Right down the Tenno path

Swingin’ and slashin’ the Tenno

Pullin' on the strings

Weapons ringin', Tenno screamin'

All is and dark

Hang your weapons and say your prayers

'Cause Stalker comes tonight!

 

Here comes Stalker, here comes Stalker,

Right down Tenno path

He's got a bag that's filled with despair

For Tenno and Warframes

Hear those weapons sling slash,

Oh what a beautiful sight

So jump in your ship and cover your head

'Cause Stalker comes tonight!

 

Here comes Stalker, here comes Stalker,

Right down Tenno path

He doesn't care if you're rich or poor

He stalks you just the same

Stalker knows we're all scared

That makes everything right

So fill your suits with fear

'Cause Stalker comes tonight!

 

Here comes Stalker, here comes Stalker,  

Right down Tenno path

He'll come around when the war comes out

That it's Christmas night again

Peace on the ship will come to fall

If we just follow the war

So let’s give thanks to the void below

That Stalker stalks us tonight!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Really? Over here...the 30th of November is when all the snow melted...and 1st of December was just a regular rainy day...How am I supposed to celabrate Christmas without any snow? How is Santa Prodman supposed to take off to the skies with his slay pulled by triggered bursas to spread plat codes and presents, without any snow?

...And come on Helen, I wanted to make that one :sad:.

O Come all ye Tenno

 

O come, all ye Tenno,
Deadly and descructive,
O come ye, O come ye to Eidolon.
Come and behold Him,
Born the King of Grakatas;
O come, let us adore Clem,
O come, let us adore Clem,
O come, let us adore Clem,
Clem the Lord.

O Sing, choirs of Darvos,
Sing in exultation,
Sing all that hear in Cetus Clem's holy GRAKATA.
Give to our Royal glory in the relays;
O come, let us adore Clem,

O come, let us adore Clem,
O come, let us adore Clem,
Clem the Lord.
GRAKATA!!!

Orignal Carol: O Come all ye faithful by John Francis Wade

  • Submission must include the title/artist of the original song

What exactly do you mean by this? We put our own custom title, and then in brackets we put the original title and author For example:

Oh Christmas Clem (O Tannenbaum, Ernst Anschütz)

Like that, or do you mean something else?

Based on "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day" by  "Henry Wadsworth Longfellow"

"I heard the drums on Solstice day"

Spoiler

 

I heard the drums on Solstice day
Their old, familiar roar of rage,

Wild,untamed
The whispers remain

Of steel and sword, farewell to Orokin!

And thought how, as the dreams before,
The ribbons flew once more

Ninth beat,
The sinister call

Of steel and sword, farewell to Orokin!

Still there, across systems and ships,
The world revolved from peace to war,

A whisper, a call,
A different light,

Of steel and sword, farewell to Orokin!

Then from each white, immortal mouth
The swords thundered in the Void,

And with the sound,
The salutes fell,

Of steel and sword, farewell to Orokin!

It was an debt reimbursed,
The ends of those unending,

And made undo,
The brotherhood borns

Of steel and sword, farewell to Orokin!

And in rage they bowed their head;
"There are no bonds," they said;

"For sinister schemes,
 mock the dream"

Of steel and sword, farewell to Orokin!"

Then fell silent,unknown and within,
"They are not dead, nor doth sleep;

The Unjust shall fail,
The Accused prevail,

With steel and sword, farewell to Orokin!"

 

 

 

"Happy holidays fellow Tenno brothers and sisters...hopefully you enjoyed this little creation of mine...May we face another year ,filled with revelations,intrigues,many many successful hunts for goodies and above all else...adventures,both for the dreamers and us,the registered losers~

Cetus Carol:

Spoiler

On Tennobaum Night all Tenno sing
To hear the news the Specters bring. (x2)
News of great joy, news of great mirth;
News of a new Prime Access' birth!

Then why should Tenno now be so sad
When our great Lotus hath made us glad; (x2)
When from our sleep she set us free,
All for to give us liberty.

And when we shoot all in the face
Then shields and health come in their place (x2)
All Tenno now with joy may sing,
As they all grind the latest thing.

From infestation comes warframes
Our enemies to kill and maim. (x2)
"Glory to Lotus, Death to all!"
Now and forevermore we call!

Original - Sussex Carol by Ralph Vaughn Williams

I saw Mommy killing Alad V (I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Clause, The Jackson 5 Version. The original creator of the original song is Jimmy Boyd.)

Spoiler

Ordis, mommy's killing Alad V!

I saw Lotus killing Alad V.

Even though she hardly ever fights!

She didn't see me creep.

From my orbiter to have a peep.

She thought that I was stashed away in the void and fast asleep.

 

Then I saw Lotus heckle Alad V.

She said he was a side-dish no one liked!

Oh what a laugh it would have been.

If Teshin had only seen. 

Lotus killing Alad V last night.

He, saw Lotus killing, (Killing Killing) Alad V!

I did! I really did see mommy killing Alad V! And I'm going to tell Teshin.

 

Then I saw Lotus heckle Alad V.

She roasted his ego over a crackling fire. 

Oh what a laugh it would have been.

If Teshin had only seen. 

Lotus killing Alad V last night!

 

Oh what a laugh it would have been.

If Teshin had only seen.

Lotus killing Alad V last night!

 

I did! I did! I really did see mommy killing Alad V! She actually fought! You gotta believe me! 

Come on, Tenno, you gotta believe me!

Janus Keys - Original Carol: Jingle Bells

Spoiler

Waken the Tenno
From their ancient sleep this day
Little do they know
Vor is on his way

Janus Keys will sing
The Void's hallowed light
And yet their song will only bring
The Captain's death tonight

Look at them, look at them,
Come to desecrate.
Tenno skoom, the friends of Clem,
By a Prophet led astray.

Janus keys, Janus keys,
The Void called to me.
Did I not tell of this day,
For the glory of the Queens!

All I want tonight is my lovely Kuva

(A Tenno rendition of All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth by Donald Yetner Gardner)

The maggots are scared to check on me,
Eaten right for their traitory,
The Tenno are to blame for this catastrophe,
Yet my one wish this evening is as plain as it can be!
All I want this night is my lovely Kuva,
My lovely Kuva,
Yes, my lovely Kuva,
Gosh if I could have my, Kuva,
Then I could brew my happy potions!
All my guards make me want to say:
"Report at once for your execution!"
Gosh, oh gee, how happy I'd be, if I could brew my  lovely Kuva!
All I want this night is my lovely Kuva,
My lovely Kuva,
Yes, my lovely Kuva,
Gosh if I could have my, Kuva,
Then I could brew my happy potions!
All my guards make me want to say:
"Report at once for your execution!"
Gosh, oh gee, how happy I'd be, if I could brew my  lovely Kuva!
All I want this night is my lovely Kuva,
My lovely Kuva,
Yes, my lovely Kuva,
Gosh if I could have my, Kuva,

This is a very famous Carol from Red Veil "Harrow's Message" (Based on "Gabriel's Message" translated into English by Sabine Baring-Gould)
(Ps: I dont find the original artist :C)

Spoiler

 

Harrow's Message

The Harrow from heaven came
His Chains as cold snow
His eyes as flame
"All hail" said he "thou lowly maiden Kay
Most highly favored lady, " Rap, Tap, Tap
"For known a blessed mother thou shalt be
All Tennos laud and honor thee
Thy Son shall be Rell
By seers foretold
Most highly favored maid, " Rap, Tap, Tap
Then gentle Kay meekly bowed her head
"To me be as it pleaseth Orokin, " she said,
"My soul shall laud and magnify His holy name."
Most highly favored lady, Rap, Tap, Tap

The Clashing of Blades

Hark! The Clashing of Blades,
Sweet Silver blades,
In tenno Hands,
Who throw cares away,

Blood lust is here,
All need to fear, 
To the young and old,
to the meek or the bold,

Vzzzzt swash shiiing shash,
That is their blade,
With fearful Sound,
Never to be bound,

One seems to hear,
Alarms in fear,
From everywhere,
It shall blare,

Trying to stand tall,
Body quivering in Awe,
Unsure how to feel,
While losing their meal,


Gaily they will ring,
The metal will sing,
Songs of fear,
Blood lust is here,

Oh Mary, Oh Mary, the tenno are here,
Oh Mary, Oh Mary, the tenno are here,

On on they send,
On without end,
Their Dreadful tone,
Striking every bone,

Vzzzzt swash shiiing shash
Vzzzzt swash shiiing shash

Hark! The Clashing of Blades,
Sweet Silver blades,
In tenno Hands,
Who throw cares away,

Blood lust is here,
All need to fear...
