    Thank you to those who have taken time to listen! This song was requested by the folks at GW-EN.com for the "End of an Era" party they held August 18th, 2012 in Guild Wars. The Lyrics were written thanks to the stories shared with me by my friends on twitter and gw-en.com over the span of a week. All the voices are me (as always)!

    Lyrics:
    Seven long years ago
    We can still remember when we first stepped in to Guild Wars one
    Celestial Sigils dropped by chance, Guild Halls were hard to finance
    To get one, you'd farming for a while
    Hero's Ascent made us quiver, with every defeat we'd be delivered
    Ecto were hard to gather, when where they dropped required favor
    Or when one May monks went on strike, the disrespect they didn't like
    Something sparked within us all, Guild Wars, we're glad we tried.

    My My, Guild Wars one was so fly
    No subscription, fully instanced, it was rare for its time
    Though Guild Wars 2 may have me saying goodbye, I'll say
    Memories of this game never die
    Memories of this game never die

    Did you skate Marhan Grotto ice? Or keep a toon in preseering cause it was nice?
    Or walk the Great Northern Wall?
    Now, Riven Earth had quite the sights, it's floating bridge was a great delight and
    Cherry Blossom Trees grew in Shing Jea~
    You've, Elona with it's deserts vast, and Shiverpeak snow couldn't be outclassed
    Cantha could look so green, man, those Krytan beaches were clean
    There so many places that we could go, it's constant beauty really made us 'whoa' but
    We knew we'd be moving on, the day of Guild Wars 2

    Join us singin' - My My, Guild Wars one was so fly
    No subscription, fully instanced, it was rare for its time
    Though Guild Wars 2 may have me saying goodbye, I'll say
    Memories of this game never die
    Memories of this game never die

    Now, Seven years it's been going strong, and so many changes have come and gone, and
    some we'd hate and some we'd love
    The Minion Factories were really mean, their large numbers made quite the scene
    Shadow Form made ecto prices lean
    Oh, 55 Monk was really strong till the mob's AI had them running round
    Spiritway was absurd, EoE bombing occurred
    Though Flavors of the Month have changed, a good new build could be arranged, but...
    we'll bid farewell to this age, once Guild Wars 2 is live.

    We'll be singing, My My, Guild Wars one was so fly
    No subscription, fully instanced, it was rare for its time
    Though Guild Wars 2 may have me saying goodbye, I'll say
    Memories of this game never die
    Memories of this game never die

    Ghostly Hero teaches how to Ascend, and in PvP, you've to defend him
    He swaps axe to bow real fast
    and Cynn and Mhenlo did romance
    Lieutenant Thackeray woo'd a bitter lass, that Hinata had some really fancy pants
    And, Razah from the Mists was made, while Shiro, out of fear betrayed
    Joko could be so crass, Oh, the Vabbi he harassed.
    For Vekk you really felt quite bad, an explosion went and killed his dad
    and Gwen killed Charr with great delight - within Guild Wars one.

    Now we're singing, My My, Guild Wars one was so fly
    No subscription, fully instanced, it was rare for its time
    Though Guild Wars 2 may have me saying goodbye, I'll say
    Memories of this game never die
    Memories of this game never die

    Oh, Lion's Arch was our gatherin' place, though Kamadan could oft replace
    with trade chat filled with tons of spam
    And, trade reads, "Want to Buy" or "A-S-L"! And maybe a random Z-Key yell, or
    people selling runs to different zones
    But then Lion's Arch would really bounce, once Gaile Gray's presence was announced
    Nothing could quite compare, to her Kongo Lines out there!
    And, as events came through the year, an Anet member might appear, and we
    Gathered while the date grew near, the date for Guild Wars 2

    We'd gather singing, My My, Guild Wars one was so fly
    No subscription, fully instanced, it was rare for its time
    Though Guild Wars 2 may have me saying goodbye, I'll say
    Memories of this game never die
    Memories of this game never die

    One last thing we can't forget, the real people we all have met
    Our community is really strong
    Guild, Alliance or solo play, we'd meet new people every day,
    And our friend lists could fill up really fast
    In PvP, we work side by side, In Roleplaying, we RP'd with pride
    In PvE we gathered, our missions all to conquer
    And, Guild Wars one will still be here, for some won't leave what they hold dear,
    when most of us say goodbye, and Guild Wars 2 we go

    My My, Guild Wars one was so fly
    No subscription, fully instanced, it was rare for its time
    Though Guild Wars 2 may have me saying goodbye, I'll say
    Memories of this game never die
    Memories of this game never die

    My My, Guild Wars one was so fly
    No subscription, fully instanced, it was rare for its time
    Though Guild Wars 2 may have me saying goodbye, I'll say
    Memories of this game never die
