"Good King Moggle Mog XII"
Music

The song's lyrics describe each moogle present in the fight and praise the king.

Good King Moggle Mog
Good King Mog
Lord of all the land! (Kupo!)
Good King Moggle Mog
Good King Mog
Rules with iron hand!
Good King Moggle Mog
Good King Mog
Leads the brave and true!
Good King Moggle Mog
Good King Mog
Now come along and meet his trusty crew!
Kupo!
Kupta Kapa will clip your tuft
Split your hairs and ruffle your fluff
Kupdi Koop will throw you for a loop
Brave a wall of whiskers to find his troupe
Kupli Kipp is sly yet sweet
He'll tickle your nose then tickle your feet
Jolly Kogi's eye for fun is clear
He'll put an arrow straight in your rear!
Pukla Puki plays with fire
Poms a-burning on her pyre
Puksi Piko likes her buddies big
To sing a little song and dance a little jig
Pukna Pako shivers and shakes
She'll stick you in the gut and give you bellyaches
And who's behind them, standing tall?
Why, the biggest moogle of them all!
(Spoken) Who!? Who!? Whoever could it be!?
Good King Moggle Mog
Good King Mog
Kind and noble lord (hear! hear!)
Nod your noggle nog
And mind your gob
Or he'll put you to the sword!
Good King Moggle Mog
Good King Mog
His judgment you will dread!
Good King Moggle Mog
Good King Mog
What do you decree?
What do you decree?
What do you decree?
Off with their heads!

A live recording of "Moogle Theme Medley" from at the London premiere of the concert of the same name on February 15, 2014, conducted by Arnie Roth, is included on this album.

Etymology[]

The moogle's Japanese name, Mōguri (モーグリ), is a portmanteau of the words for mole (土竜, mogura?) and bat (蝙蝠, kōmori?). "Moogle" is the localized version of Mōguri, losing the pun, though "moogle" has started to appear in Japanese sources as well.
