A/N: I had a lot of fun writing these. I hope readers will get a good chuckle reading them. Thanks to Arsinoe3 for suggesting the title of this song collection.

Tavington Is Coming to Town
(sung to the tune of "Santa Claus is Coming to Town")

You'd better watch out
You'd better run hide
You'd better not join the rebel side
Tavington is coming to town!

He's making a list
And writing it down
If you do wrong
He'll burn your house down
Tavington is coming to town!

He'll know if you talk treason
He'll know if you sell guns
And then he'll have a reason
To put you on the run!

O! You'd better watch out
You'd better run hide
You'd better not join the rebel side
Tavington is coming to town!


Here Comes Tavington
(sung to "Here Comes Santa Claus")

Here comes Tavington
Here comes Tavington
Chasing Martin's men
Bordon and Wilkins and all the dragoons
Will hunt them down again!

Hooves are pounding, sabers flying
It's a jolly good fight!
Run, Ben Martin and say your prayers
Cause Tavington comes tonight!

Up on the Housetop
(sung to the song of the same name)

Up on the housetop, the torch does hit
Tavington has ordered it!
Down through the chimney with lots of flames
All for the dragoons'
Wartime games

Chorus

Burn, burn, burn
Then they'll learn
Burn, burn burn
Then they'll learn

On to the next farm
Burn them down
Run all the rebels
Out of town

Gabriel Got Run Through With a Saber
(sung to "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer")

Gabriel got run through with a saber
After he thought Tavington was dead
He'd thought he'd shot Tavy in the head
But that was wrong he knew there as he bled.

He'd found his sweet new bride Anne dead
And we'd begged him not to go
But he'd vowed to avenge her killing
So he left town before Ben could tell him no

When Ben found him a little later
At the scene of the attack
Just in time to say, "Goodbye, son"
And see Tavington escaping out the back

Gabriel got run through with a saber
After he thought Tavington was dead
He'd thought he'd shot Tavy in the head
But that was wrong he knew there as he bled.

Now, we're all so proud of Martin
He's been taking this so well
See him there courting Charlotte
When what he wants to do is give Tavy hell

It's no good war without Gabriel
All the family`s dressed in black
And we can't just help but wonder
Should we chase Tavington or go riding back

Gabriel got run through with a saber
After he thought Tavington was dead
He'd thought he'd shot Tavy in the head
But that was wrong he knew there as he bled.

Now the troops are on the field
And the soldiers are in place
Tavington's dragoons are waiting
Will Ben stay and fight and maybe save some face

I've warned all my friends and neighbors
Batter not fight for Martin
They should rather fight the rebels
Join the Green Dragoons under Will Tavington

Gabriel got run through with a saber
After he thought Tavington was dead
He'd thought he'd shot Tavy in the head
But that was wrong he knew there as he bled.
