The Daughter's Lament Lyrics

Come in, come in my father dear
And spend this hour with me
For I have a meal, a very fine meal
And I fixed it up for thee, thee
I fixed it up for thee
No, I ain't commin' in, I ain't commin' in
To spend this hour with thee
For I have to go down in the mines
I return this night to thee, thee
I return this night to thee

Did she got up her arrow and her bow
Her arrow and her string
And she went down to the forest deep
And sweetly she did sing, sing
And sweetly she did sing
Up spoke, up spoke a mockingjay
From a willow tree
You had a father in the mines
Who's gone this day from thee, thee
Who's gone this day from thee

Woe be woe be mockingjay
Woe be woe be to thee
I'll send an arrow through your heart
For to bring such news to me, me
For to bring such news to me
Up spoke, up spoke that mockingjay
Don't waste your time with me
Go home and mind that pretty little girl
Her father no more to see, see
Her father no more to see

She went home to her house that night
That house so cold and mean
And she held her sister close to her side
And never more did sing, sing
And never more did sing

It does more than just draw from The Hunger Games! It' about Katniss directly, and how her father died in a mine accident when she was young.

I love this song. I'm pretty sure it is based, or at least draws from, the popular trilogy The Hunger Games
