Filker's Note: My wife is a Serious Online Gamer (SOG). This is the song I wish she'd sing to me.

Tonight I'm yours completely,
But will my guild delete me?
Tonight I'm leaving Everquest behind,
But can I play it tomorrow?

The raid begins at seven,
And won't be done until eleven.
I won't be there; I'm happy at your side.
But can I play it tomorrow?

Bridge:

When you're not here, I'm happy
To be a blue-skinned wizard elf.
But at the risk of sounding sappy,
When you're home I'll be myself.

You've cast a spell upon me,
So I'll attend to you fondly
Until you're snoring softly at my side.
Then I'll play EQ tomorrow.
