A Paladin's Ode to all FFXI jobsFollow

I decided while waiting on some Auction House items to sell, that I would come up with something extremely stupid involving FFXI. I, am very confident that I succeded, though I never thought that it would be a song. I wasnt exactly sure where to post this, so I just decided to do it in the Paladin forum since Paladin is my main, and is the central character of this "song". Now before you read the song, if you bother too.. lol, keep in mind that this was written (poorly I might add) out of pure stupidty. I know it's kinda hard to read a song, but I imagine the tune of it to go along with "God Bless the USA", but whatever you want go ahead, lol, just me being bored.


If tommarow all the jobs were gone,
and I had just my memories.
I'd cherish every moment,
except for those in Valkurm by the Sea.

Because if I woke up to tommarow,
to just your memories.
I'd stand with my shield in hand,
and proudly shout across the lands...

Im proud to be a paladin,
and have fought by your side Thieves.
With you and all your little knives,
that made all the mobs hate me.

And I'd gladly stand up,
next to all my Monk friends out there.
Because you guys would hit so fast,
all I could do was sit and stare.

And from the trees of Ronafaure,
to the chaos of Dynamis.
I'd always pride with a Red Mage at my side,
to cast refresh on me.

From Demons to Clippers,
I'd always smile as I gained 10 tp.
And then when I hit the mob again,
I'd find all you Samurai on skill chain number 3.

But Im proud to be a paladin,
with Rangers at my side.
And Im always glad to cover your way,
when you hit the mob for a million and five.

And I'll gladly stand up,
next to the high flying Dragoons out there.
Because its cool to see you jump,
four miles into the air.

From the White Mage to the Black,
I'll always have your backs.
Because without the healing and power of you guys,
the mob would crush me flat.

And then to all the Dark Knights out there,
you miss alot, so what.
If every slice hit the mob's face,
I'd have to beg for you to share some hate.

And Im proud to be a paladin,
and fight next to the all the warriors out there.
Who can use virtually all the weapons,
and way out-damage me.

And I'd gladly stand up,
next to any Ninja with Utsusemi.
All you guys can evade everything,
is that a trick you can teach me?

You Summoner's with your crazy pets,
I'd still gawk at them to this day.
They always gave me uber spells,
and Ifrit's spawn always horrified me.

And the mighty Beast Masters,
who ran on their own terms.
I'd always wave and never tried to talk smack,
and of course it had nothing to do with the
4 ton tiger behind your back.

And Im proud to be a Paladin,
with Bards to play me a tune.
You all could make me feel,
like I had just been refreshed by sleeping till noon.

And I'd gladly stand up,
next to all the other Paladins out there.
After all is lost we would stand and fight,
and wouldnt flinch at death's cold stare.

And Im proud to be a Paladin,
and stand next to all the jobs out there.
Because without all of you,
my little sword couldnt scratch a mobs hair.

And I'd gladly stand up,
with you all to get us some xp.
So in the end when the dust all clears,
our party meets victory.

So should I wake tommarow,
to find your all gone.
I'd stop my all sorrows,
to proudly stand and say.

Im proud to be a paladin,
defender of the weak.
I thank you for all your jobs,
and the help you've given me.

God Bless the Pal-a-deeeeen!!!


Well, that was a little bit longer than I had intended but o well, I dont think any length could save it from its crappyness lol. After looking over this just now, I realize how much it doesnt flow right, o well, anyways. Let me say this now, I DONT MEAN TO OFFEND ANYONE, this song is not meant to bash any job what-so-ever. I just did it out of boredom, and I like all jobs, yes all of them, so no malice was meant towards ANY job. I was just a way of me passing some time while my pally sits idle next to the auction house. But I hope you enjoyed it, or hated it so much that it was frightengly funny because of how bad it is, lol, either way thanks for bothering to read it.

Very good. Entertaining to boot. I liked the part about the Samurais the most, and your great memories of all the lands except for Valkurm.

Rate up on me ^^.

Yeah, WingGundamZero, you are correct on the pronouciation of Paladin (or at least I think you are). The reason i put Pal-a-deen was to try and match the tune of the song its supposed to flow with. However, like I said, its kinda hard to read a song, especially one like this, so now that I think about it Pal-a-deen does sound kinda wierd. But as for actual pronunciation, Pal-uh-din, as you put it seems to be the most likely cannidate for correctness.

It's late, and I am getting far too emotional in my old age, but that almost made me shed a tear. Fine, fine, fine song. Good job, and way to be, sharing that with all of us.

Thank you.

Wow, I was really impressed, that actually made me laugh, which is something I hadn't done in at least a few weeks, I liked it alot and man... everything in there is what I been thinkin as I play the game execpt... that I had a good time in Valkurm Dunes my 1st time going there back in beta... the dunes wasn't the ****-hole it is today
We met in the mist of morning
And parted deep in the night
Broken sword and shield, and tears that never fall
But run through the heart
Washed away by the darkest water
The world is peaceful and still

It's my **** in a box!

Paladeeen? I thought it was pronounced Pal uh din, din as in dinner?

Actually it is pronounced ナイト (naito for you people without JP support) as in Knight...I have no clue why they changed it to Paladin when they brought FF4 and FFXI to the US.

Other jobs are:

戦士 (せんし)(Senshi)Warrior
モンク(Monku) Monk
シーフ (Shi-fu) Thief
黒間動士 (くろまどうし)(Kuromadoushi) Black Mage 
Not sure on the kanji.
白間動士 (しろまどうし)(Shiromadoushi) White Mage
赤間動士 (あかまどうし)(Akamadoushi) Red Mage

ナイト (Naito) (Knight) Paladin
餡子検し (あんこくけんし)(Ankokukenshi) Dark Knight
Not sure on the Kanji
りゅ岸 (りゅきし)(Ryukishi) Dragoon
Not sure on the Kanji
人者 (にんじゃ)(Ninja) Ninja
侍 (さむらい) (Samurai) Samurai

I forgot RNG BST and SMN...
[EDIT] What the crap? Does this site not support JP?

palキaキdin (pl-dn) n. A paragon of chivalry; a heroic champion.
A strong supporter or defender of a cause.
#26 Dec 11 2004 at 5:25 PM Rating: Decent
When people think of knight they usually think of heavily armored man with a sword (which paladin are), but the name Paladin brings the thought of a holy defender of the weak.

BTW, this song rocked. I'm glad someone bumped it so more may see it.
