Original video
Let us begin where it all began
Fireside flickering flames
Make the shadows dance

Heigh-ho so we go we pass it on
We hand it down-o

We tell our tales, we sing our songs
While we have breath left in our lungs

Heigh-ho so we go we pass it on
We hand it down-o

We pass it on down
To the young from the old
We feel it deep down in the soul

Heigh-ho so we go we pass it on
We hand it down-o

Sometimes truth hides beside the lies
Grist to the mill, fuel to our fire

Heigh-ho so we go we pass it on
We hand it down-o

For it is said, so it lives on
We pass it down, it carries on

Oh down we go into folklore

The pen is mightier than the sword
The music of the word is scored

Heigh-ho so we go we pass it on
We hand it down-o

Our satellites they span the globe
Lo our stories shall be told

Heigh-ho so we go we pass it on
We hand it down-o

For it is said, so it lives on
We pass it down, it carries on

Oh down we go into folklore

I am a messenger: I speak
With integrity, truth, love and light

For it is said, so it lives on
And when we're gone, we carry on

Oh down we go into folklore
