The Lyrics

I have revised this many many times to agree with both the book and movie, Fellowship of the Ring, as best I can. Enjoy!
THE FELLOWSHIP PIE

A long, long time ago
Isildur de-fingered
Evil Sauron, with a single stroke
And this was the new king's only chance
To rid the land of Sauron's trance
And free, all of the Middle, Earthen folk
But his will was the Ring's abduction
Thereby avoiding Its destruction
It sank to river bottom
Then made Its way to Gollum
To Bilbo It had come in time [the One]
Ring to rule all of Its kind
The others It had pow'r, to find
And in, the darkness, bind

[There were] Nine, nine, for mortal men doomed to die
Dwarves got seven and the Elven got three under the sky
In the land of Mordor where the dark shadows lie
Was the One Ring which has power to find
The others in the darkness, bind

So Bilbo thought it was time
Time to leave his "precious" ring behind
To his nephew named Frodo
Now Gandalf, made him pack up and go
With Samwise, and two other souls, while
Evil Ringwraiths, on their horses fol-lowed
Well just when they thought their luck forlorn
In comes, Strider a.k.a. Aragorn
To save those guys from the Shire
Man he set those 'Wraiths on fi-ire!
And so while Frodo made for, Rivendell
The dark riders chased him just like bats out of hell
But Elrond made sure all was well
As soon, as he arrived

[The elves were singing]
My, my, this here small Frodo guy
He's the hobbit of whose job it meant the fate of free life
The council made, his Fellowship total nine
Elrond prayed the Fellowship would survive
Or all the free peoples would die

Now the trip took, them to Caradhras
To try that, high Misty, Mountain pass
But Saruman made it not to be
So the party headed to Moria
After a while, at Durin's, Door they saw
The password, was Elvish for, pal or peep
Oh it was Pip that made, Gandalf frown,
Cuz orcs and goblins, came around
The cave troll was real pissed
Now he doesn't exist
So while, Balin's dead in his, stone tomb
The Fellowship, had run, from the room
And made for the bridge of Khazad-dum
That's when, they near-ly died

[They were singing]
Bye, bye, Gandalf Grey wizard guy
Fought a demon that was steamin' from its hellfire hide
Said "You shall not pass!" and made the Balrog comply
But he fell and told the others to fly
The company thought he had died

Helter-skelter in that summer swelter
The friends, ran off to the nearest shelter
The woods where few have, ever paaassed
They blindly fell into the trap
The wood elves set for this weary cast
While they pleaded, for assistance, on their task
Lothlorien's air was, sweet perfume
And Galadriel, forewarned Frodo's doom
She sent, them on their path
OH, past the mighty Argonath
Where, Boromir yearned, the ring, to wield
The Ring-bearer, refused to yield
Greed of mankind again revealed
When came, the U-rukhai

[He started swinging, but]
My, my, this here Boromir guy
Just went loco chasing Frodo who just vanished from sight
Regained his head, too late to apologize
But he fought to save his hobbit friends' lives
The Gondor man put up a fight

Oh, so there they were all in one place
The Fellowship had, been displaced
With Urukhai stormin' Amon Hen
Legolas' daggers nimble, bow too quick
Gimli's, built like a ton of bricks [and]
Strider should be feared throughout the land
Oh and as they battled in the fray
T'was Frodo, who planned to sneak away
Try as, that hobbit might
Sam would not leave his side, so
As the two crossed River, Anduin
Boromir was made a pin cushion [in came]
Strider screaming for revenge
On that, poor U-rukhai

[He was swinging]
My, my, this here Aragorn guy
Had a feasting on that beast-thing stuck a knife in its thigh
He grabbed his sword, and knocked the dagger aside
Then he kissed that ugly orc-head goodbye
Too late to save the Gondor man's life

The three warriors felt the blues
When they, found out 'bout the, shocking news
Merry and Pip, were taken away
And Sam and Frodo had not a clue
Of just how, to reach that, Mountain Doom
But they started, on their journey, anywaaay
In Amon Hen still lays their peer
The great valiant warrior Boromir
There was no time for mopin'
The Horn of Gondor's broken
And the three guys who endured the wrath
Aragorn, Gimli, and, Legolas
They all took off to kick, some ass
Of the, the U-ru-khai

And they were singing
My, my, Saruman's Urukhai
You may carry Pip and Merry but we'll catch up in time
We'll sprint all day, and keep on running all night
You can run but all you bastards can't hide
Soon as we catch up, you'll all die

They were singing
My, my, Saruman's Urukhai,
You may carry Pip and Merry but we'll catch up in time
We'll sprint all day, and keep on running all night
You can run but all you bastards can't hiiide

I can only assume that it was 'one guy' who decided you were much better than normal and decided to up his vote to all twos... I gave you all fives. This is a wonderfully crafted parody, excellent pacing, rhymes in all the right places, sticks to the plot wonderfully, and I really can't praise it enough! Fantastic work.

that Jason Dela Cruz is one creative beoch. He really knows whats he's talking about when it comes to LOTR. Creativity and lack of tone deafness really allows the song to be understood and should be admired by all true LOTR fans.

Yes, he knows what he's talking about when it comes to Lord of the Rings. As Dick Smothers would say, That was NOT a compliment. I can't wait for Sean Astin to pull a Bill Shatner and address a convention in 20 years and say, "Get a life, will ya, people?"

haha! thats a cool parody!

Wow. All I can say. Arguably just as good as Weird Al's classic saga... maybe not, but definitely close.

Thanks everybody. I really appreciate all the comments, good and bad.

It shows you worked very hard on this; I'm not a big LOTR fan but this was very well written. Great job.

Wonderful stuff! A brilliant entry in the ever-increasing LOTR tome.

Wow! For this parody, you deserve nothing less than straight fives! Awesome and ......just awesome!!!!! Lord of the Rings Rules!!!! Now, you just have to do a parody on Two Towers!
Spaff.com - October 10, 2003 - Report this comment
Wow, I can't believe I almost missed this one. It's obvious you put a (fellow)ship-load of work into this. Nice rhyme, rhythm, everything. And you didn't even cop out and repeat the chorus. I'm really looking forward to the next two installments.

Ya know, Johnny D, if you wanna do paragraph breaks, just enter br between the lessthan and greaterthan symbols and place the tag at the end of each paragraph.

T.V.O.D., thanks for the info - I sheepishly admit, and now EVERYBODY can see, that I am an old fart who doesn't know his HTML from his BFA.
I am properly chastised.
Sir Jay, my apologies to you, sir - I'm sorry I unnecessarily cluttered up your page.
ChuckyG - if you read this - Please go ahead and delete my two earlier sets of comments above and let me re-enter my Ode To Sir Jay with proper paragraphing?
Thanks,
Johnny D

Im not a big Rings fan, I read this and Jay, you are quite good. I easily could become a LOTR fan by reading more parodies like this.

I am the LOTR fan above. Just felt like typing an over-sufficient name.
Jay Dela Cruz - October 29, 2003 - Report this comment
LOL, you guys are great. Thanks for the good words. I'm working on more LOTR parodies, probably based more on the movies than on the books. I was thinking of keeping to the same song for the sequels, but it probably wouldn't work out, and would most likely get tiring.
Another LOTR Fanatic - January 12, 2005 - Report this comment
Sir Jay, This is an exceptional parody and if I were you, I really would stick with the same song for the others, (possibly you have and I just haven't come across them yet - but will definitely be looking for them). This specific song is especially good for long sagas like Star Wars and LOTR. All 5s for you dude! And thanks for making my night!
Tiffany Smith - January 01, 2016 - Report this comment
I am a great LOTR fan and I love it! The friend who introduced LOTR to me I'd going to hear of it within the next twenty four hours! THIS IS THE BEST!! Besides the actual LOTR
