The Lyrics

This is the second-to-last parody in the official 'Another Hobbit's Tale' series. The series is a six-parody tribute to LOTR, and this one is from Sam's perspective unless otherwise noted and deals with the early events in the third LOTR movie. It really helps the parody if you are a LOTR nut, like me.
Rivendell to mister Sam
Rivendell to mister Sam
Take your cooking gear and lead your master on

(Countdown and 'Lift off' are in elfish)

Bombadil to mister Sam
Commencing climbing, Lembas gone
Check your footing and may Gollum lead you through...

This is Rivendell to mister Sam
I hope your not afraid
Don't look down or you will need new underwear
Please stay strong and guard your master, don't despair

This is mister Sam to Rivendell
Reporting from Mordor
And I'm still not wearing shoes, my feet are sore
I can't sleep with Gollum laying there... HE SNORES

For here, am I carrying a tin pan
Far across the world
Middle Earth is vast and my courage will not last

We have come one-hundred-thousand miles
I miss my faithful Bill
I have failed, my master just sent me away

(To Gollum)
Tell Frodo I love him very much

(Gollum w/ one raised eyebrow)
NO WAY

(Frodo)
Frodo B. to mister Sam
'Away' I said
And I was wrong
Can you hear me, mister Sam?
Can you hear me, mister Sam?
Can you hear me, mister Sam?
Can you...

(Frodo and Sam)
Here... we will dream of kicking Gollum
Far across the world
Middle Earth is vast, he'll need a full-body cast
Sam's closing comments:
I will find whoever has been chanting 'RUDY' when I face off with the spider in the third movie. My name is Sean Bean, I was not the guy in "Rudy". We are two different people. Look it up during the credits.

Great job, 2nz - keep that LOTR flame burning bright on Amiright!

I love love LOVE it, 2nz...you had to know I would. Three 5s from me...but I'm not sure I follow Sam's closing comments. Are you joking there and I'm just really stupid? Because...Sean Bean played Boromir. Sean Astin (aka Rudy) IS Samwise Gamgee.

No, Arwen, you are 110% correct about the name. I meant to say what the nice Lothlorien lady above this comment pointed out everyone. And thank you too, Johnny. It's awesome to be looked forward to (Even though my English teacher would behead me for a sentance like this). Hey, keep your eyes peeled this week for the last one. My rough draft is already done and I can't spoil it, but here are the performers: (Frodo (the hobo) Baggins: vocals), (Sammy Gamgee: piano), (Gollum aka (The plunder down under) aka (Starvin’ Marvin): percussion), (Lego-(my eggo)-las: Clarinet), (Gimli (the beer…d), son of Gloin, on saxophone)

Good one, 2nz... Bowie seems well suited for LOTR....

Thanks, Big Mac. My version of this is pretty good, but Johnny D's is great. It's called 'Face Oddity'.

I would like to formally retract my "Sam's closing comments". Whoever it was chanting "Rudy", feel free to continue.

(Fantasy/Sci-Fi) Very good!

(SCI-FI) That's one giant leap for Samwise.

Lovely, 2nz - great concept, beautifully executed :-)

(Sci-Fi/Fantasy) See above.

(SCI-FI) Even though I'm not into LOTR this one was done well. Favorite line even though I can't reference it in the movie, it made me laugh just the same:

Don't look down or you will need new underwear

Good song, I enjoyed it!
Paul Robinson - October 19, 2004 - Report this comment
(Sci-Fi) Sigh...more LOTR stuff...but I do know the original song...but I don't know anything about most of the characters you use here from the bit of "Fellowship" I watched....so it doesn't mean much to me....sigh...

I agree with Mr Macphisto .. perfect combination of OS and parody .. superb! 5s

i think frodo did not want of sam to write this in his book. but funny if you may say so.
Agrimorfee - December 18, 2012 - Report this comment
An oldymoldie in your arsenal, and a nice one. You kept Sam's "voice" in the new words, which was really cool and funny...which made sudden appearances of Golum a little awkward in reading. A full recording by a BAD or Great Lukeski would be fantastic with this.

I'm not a huge Lord of the Rings fan as much as it pains me to admit that because I wanted to like the series but the movies were too damn long and the books were difficult to read. I know about Lotr though and this is a good fan peice and I liked Gollum's reaction to Sam's statement.

(Artistry) Awesome tribute to one of my fave characters in LOTR. And unlike the last LOTR-related parody I read from you, I understood every reference! Huzzah and stuff. 555!

"Mr. Frodo, do you think that maybe someday someone will write songs about our adventures?" "Well, if they do, I hope they write a song about Samwise Gamgee. Frodo wouldn't have gotten very far without Sam."

(Artistry) You get 5s from me simply for working in Bombadil. Great stuff!
Meriadoc - January 02, 2013 - Report this comment
(Artistry) The 'lembas gone' and 'HE SNORES' were two of the highlights. You did an excellent job capturing the basics of Sam's personality.

Being a hobbit I am ashamed to say I know little to nothing about the subject matter, but I got the idea from the parody. I particularly liked the fact the reference to the snoring!

Interesting parody (I am an LOTR fan--fantasy in general appeals to me). . .well written, perhaps not over the top funny, still the topic was fun and it was an interesting twist on TOS
