    For you Game Of Thrones fans.

    Lyrics

    Cast out from the lands of their births
    Banished from hearth and home
    All brothers must swear the oath
    Forsaking all they've known

    If you choose to take the black
    Bid farewell to comforts great and small
    Those who do, don't come back
    Prepare yourself for life on the wall

    Night gathers and the watch begins
    The wind carries an unnatural chill
    There are things beyond the northern borders
    Mere steel can't kill

    Men who choose to take the black
    Rogues and rangers, one and all
    Those who do, won't come back
    Prepare yourself for life on the wall

    LOL, glad I'm not the only one.

    But, I'm expecting many puns.

    I always thought this little tidbit of history regarding the Wall was interesting. Seems like people used to willingly take the black. Jon Snow comments on this in Dance of Dragons. Pretty cool.

    http://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/Night%E2%80%99s_Watch

    Once, serving on the Wall was honor and a sign of selfless devotion to duty, with many knights, honorable men, and nobles taking the black voluntarily. Today, the Night’s Watch is beginning to be seen as only a way to avoid punishment; suitable less for knights now than for the dregs of Westeros, salvaged from dungeons by traveling recruiters. Disgraced nobles, bastards, and even the unwanted legitimate offspring of nobles are “encouraged” to take the black, making many of today’s Watch a surly and dissatisfied lot.
