The Lyrics

Sung by Smeagol.
We sees a hobbit and we wantses the ring back
No starving anymore once we get my ring back
I've watched the Elves go by dressed in their Elven-mail
But we brokes out at last and quickly turned our tail
We see the Fellowship and wantses the ring back
We can't let Frodo drop it into that big crack
I see people turn their heads and see us run away
We is like a Ring wraith 'cause we never ever stay
We go insane myself and want the precious back
We sees those hobbits and we head in to attack
Maybe then we'll fade away and not have to face the facts
It's not easy living when you want your precious back

No more will my thin skin go turn a deeper hue
Forever, we'll run wild, the ring we will pursue
If we looks hard enough into the setting sun
We will go laughses at the morning when it comes

Hmm, hmm, hmm...
We wanna see the precious, precious, my ring back
Back tonight, Hobbits stole
the precious so I'll go...go kill them, kill them all!
Precious, precious, our ring back!

I kind of wondered about that too, Chad. But I don't have a problem with it, so why should you? Obviously people thought it was good, and if you think something's going on you should contact the site administrator, not post a comment for everyone to see just to make the author look bad.

I liked this one, EmiLoca ! You're not the only one around here who likes Tolkien parodies...I wrote one about Gollum, too. Here's where you can find my parody of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" titled "Gollum's Rhapsody":

Good stuff, although there are many similarities between this and another parody that I know. This seems like many years since you first posted the song, but good workses. We likses this precious very much, we does.

Minor (and mootable) pacing problems don't deeply dent this excellent effort. I'm no Tolkien fan -- much prefer Wagner's (at least) superficially similar and equally interminable (but indisputably more melodic) ring-related shenannigans -- but love both the Stones' OS and what you've done with it. :-)
