    Am         Dm               Am       G 
    Some folk think, where the court convenes  
          C          Dm        Am         G  
    That blacks, or women, or gays, or sprites  
         Am        Dm               Am         E  
    May think and speak, but their difference means 
             Am        C          C       F 
    They are not real people and have no rights. 
    
               C       Dm        C     G  
    There are monsters under the open sky  
            C        Dm              C          G 
    Who destroy the difference they can't make tame  
               Am        Dm             Am          E 
    There are those who think that the wolves must die... 
           Am           Dm       C    G   Am 
    Well, hunting the hunter is but Fair Game. 
    
    So strong is hate, where they hate the elves, 
    They believe it justifies all they do 
    There are even those made to hate themselves 
    For the heart thus twisted can not speak true. 
    
    We cannot change to your sole caprice 
    To set your human fears at rest; 
    If we can't get justice or even peace 
    We may shrug and settle for second best. 
    
    Age and power when yoked to love 
    May bring results of a drastic sort 
    And those who grudge the end thereof 
    May plead their case in another court. 
     
    There are monsters under the open sky  
    Who destroy the difference they can't make tame  
    There are those who think that the wolves must die... 
    Well, hunting the hunter is but Fair Game. 
           Am          Dm        C   G   Am 
    Well, hunting the hunter is but Fair Game!
