The Lyrics

This one turned out to be a LOT harder to do than I thought it would, but by the time I got halfway through it was getting to me and I was determined to complete it out of sheer bloody-mindedness. :^) It covers the final battle at the Black Gate, where the armies of Middle Earth fight the armies of Mordor to buy some time for Frodo and Sam to destroy the Ring.

And here's a link to the original song.

Some fights get screwed up; put it down to bad luck
Some fights just end in a draw
This fight could end in us kicking all their asses
Or might just see the wheels fall off

Because we’ve kicked butt with a team of ghosts
And now we’ll kill those orcs outside Mordor, oh
But there’s a lot more, more than we planned for
This fight, I don’t know…
How we’ll go…oh -
(Whoa-oh whoa-ohhhhh oh, whoa-oh ohhhh oh, whoa-ohhh)
(ohh whoa, whoa-oh whoa-ohhhhh oh, whoa-oh ohhhh oh, whoa-ohhh)

It’s the war to end all wars – we’ve got a fighting force
Ripe for a scrap, tooled up and ready
Got a clever plan, gonna speak some shite
Taunt Sauron - I bet he’ll bite
We’ll yank his cord and we’ll get him psyched
Then he’ll be joining in the smackdown fight

That’s alright
Because I’d rather not be dead tonight
Stop Sauron from wondering just where I am, me and Sam,
Then our… scam… won’t catch his eye… mmm…mmm…

Well some fights like this are just all pretend
A mighty ruse from friends at the Gate
We’re just slightly scared how it’s all gonna end
Frodo might just sneak in, destroy the Ring…

But if he screws up, we will all be toast
Bad news for Middle Earth and for Gondor, ohh…
Vict’ry for Mordor, we just won’t stand for
Hold tight – off we go…

(Ah come on…)
ARAGORN: So this is it… we’ll go for broke for this?
FRODO: Go through fire and smoke for this?
EOWYN: I dressed up like a bloke for this?

And oh… though we see stars when we’re hit, and we get scars, that’s all they are
If things go wrong, this is our swansong, so come on...
LEGOLAS: Bring it on…
PIPPIN: Take us on…
GIMLI: Yeah, come on..!

Let’s do our bit, rise up now men - orcs comin’ in in their hordes again
Can’t just submit to the Dark Lieutenant’s dumb demands
Had Frodo’s armour and elven cloak
But he might only be blowing smoke
What the heck? Here’s a bunch of trolls - now that’s just really underhand..!

I’m gonna take ‘em down, watch this yeah – got a sword and I feel tough…
I just stuck this one and won this fight…
But he’s fallen on me… it’s kind of hard to breathe… need some help here...
He’s not very light…! Owww…. aaaahhh
Urrgghh…. Owwwwwww….. aaaahhhh….. owwwww….!

(Whoa-oh whoa-ohhhhh oh, whoa-oh ohhhh oh, whoa-ohhh)
(ohh whoa, whoa-oh whoa-ohhhhh oh, whoa-oh ohhhh oh, whoa-ohhh)

Now eagles fly right over the scene, we’re watching the armies of Mordor flee’n’
Oh Gandalf what does the whole thing mean?

Means the quest is won – we licked ‘em!
Frodo messed them up and kicked ‘em… Oh
He’s the best and not a victim
Aced the test, I’m glad we picked him…. yeah!

For Aragorn's second verse, the second line SHOULD read "Can’t just submit to the Dark Lieutenant’s BLOODY dumb demands." But it's okay - I didn't beat myself up about that. Much.

Wendy - I proclaim you to be the best parodist on (Middle) Earth. The imagery and especially the "dialogue" are a delight. This could make a great video. ;D

I thought this song would be difficult to parody also. But you have used it well, to tell the story in such a way that I could follow the basic plot. I never read LOTR or saw any of the movies, but I could get a good idea of the plot from your lyrics.

Imagine how Sauron's army must have felt when they realized they'd all been deceived - wishing the earth would open up and swallow them. Once again astute choice of OS, and your broadening my education in what I call 'young people's music' (any music less than thirty years old).
