The Lyrics

...as sung by sam to frodo...i'm going to louisiana for a week to see my son get married and see my 6 month old granddaughter for the first time...see ya on the other side...
he needs to go...let's banish gollum
its apropos...to banish gollum
he is a wretched one
he's gonna seize ya, son
you'd better watch out when that loon is on the hunt
he craves the ring, you're guardin'
i'm gonna smash his teeth
and incur further grief
if he harms ya

he needs to blow...let's banish gollum
bad news, you know...let's banish gollum
his heart's as black as coal
he doesn't have a soul
he wants the ring, you wear...in that, he has no control
though he was once a hobbit
so keep that trinket close
and hid beneath your clothes
or he'll rob it

oops...messed up one line...it SHOULD read "he wants the ring you wear, in fact, he's lost control"....reads smoother

Oh, my precious!!! So you're going to Louisiana? Hope you have a great time. Congrats to your son getting married and bless your granddaughter. Also thank you for wishing me a Happy Easter (same to you yesterday). Hope yours was a great one. My birthday is today also. Anyways, great parody like always. I also get what you meant by the last line. 555's! See you on the other side as well! :)

Alvin - That Gollum sure has picked up some bad and annoying hobbits. I agree - he should be banished. The perfect place to banish him would be the island on the TV show "Lost". They've got every other kind of weird thing there imaginable - a Gollum would be about just right, I'd say. Nice parody today. 5 Golden Rings fer ya. And have yourself a fine trip to Luzy-ann. If you're flying wave when you get over Texas, if I see ya, I'll wave back. And do sample the indigenous eats while you are there. I have and the experience for the most part was wonderful.

I hope you have a good time in Louisiana, Alvin, and I bet your granddaughter is probably adorable. The parody's subject was beyond my ken, but it is still worthy of 5s.

So, going to Lousiana? I know you'll have a good time with those events. And welcome to the eastern states...:)

Looks as if they thought up the most freaky character for gollum. Good parody...good pacing.5's
