A fun, light-hearted parody of the children's song Sandwiches by Fred Penner...only now it's about how much Hoid loves Investiture! Mild spoilers for Mistborn, Warbreaker, and Stormlight Archive.Hoid's Magic Song - based on Fred Penner's Sandwiches song.mp3

Lyrics:

[Chorus]
Investiture is beautiful,
Investiture is fine.
I like investiture, I use it all the time;
Magic is my supper and magic is my lunch;        
If there’s a hundred kinds of magic then I’d use them all at once.
 
[Verse 1]
I'm a roaming and a rambling
And a wandering all along,
And if you care to listen,
I will sing a happy song.
I will not ask a favour
And I will not ask a fee,
But if you have yourself some magic
Won't you give a bit to me?

[Chorus]
Investiture is beautiful,
Allomancy's fine.
I like lerasium, I eat it all the time;
I eat it for my supper and I eat it for my lunch;     
If I had a hundred beads of it, I'd eat them all at once.

[Verse 2]
Once I went to Nalthis,
Summoned to the God Queen,
I swear she was the brightest lady
That I'd ever seen.
I told her she was colourful
And could not ask for more,
I told her a story
Then she threw me out the door.

[Chorus]
Investiture is beautiful,
Biochroma's fine.
I like Heightening, I breathe it all the time;
I take Breaths for my supper and I take Breaths for my lunch;          
If I found a hundred Breaths, oh well I'd breathe them all at once.

[Verse 3]
Well, once I met a brilliant girl,
the fairest in the land,
The Brightlords of the country,
they were asking for her hand.
They’d offer her alliances,
Emeralds to appease;
I offered her some magic
And she said that she was pleased!
 
[Chorus]
Investiture is beautiful,
Bonding spren is fine.
I like lightweaving, I use it all the time;
Stormlight is my supper and Stormlight is my lunch;        
If I had a hundred broams of it, I'd breathe them all at once.

[Verse 4]
Well magic could be colour, breath, or light, or metal platters,
But they are all so good to me,
It really doesn’t matter
Lights or kites or being right,
Any kind will do.
I like the Cosmere’s magic,
How about you?

[Chorus]
Investiture is beautiful,
Investiture is fine.
I like investiture, I use it all the time;
Magic is my supper and magic is my lunch;       
If there’s a hundred kinds of magic then I’d use them all at once.
