The Lyrics

I have only this to say; I rarely go in chronological order for anything. Ever. Oh wait... also, this is from Gandalf's viewpoint. And... ok this is more than one point. But anyway, I know my pacing is a little off too. Please forgive me, I just aim to amuse!
A long, long time ago
I can still remember
How those hobbits used to make me smile
And I knew if I had fireworks,
That I could play on Bilbo's quirks,
And maybe I could see him for a while.
But as he spoke he made me shiver
And he slipped the Ring on his finger.
Bad news to each hobbit;
And yet I couldn't stop it
I can't remember if I cried
When the rumor spread that Bilbo died
But something touched me deep inside
The day that Smeagol fried.
So...

Bye bye, Mr. Smeagol, goodbye,
Drove up to the Prancing Pony but Pippin drank it dry
Them good old hobbits had the place going high
Saying "Once removed on his mother's side!"
Once removed on his mother's side...

Now did you keep it secret and safe,
And do you have a lot of faith
If Gandalf tells you so?
Do you believe that Mirkwood hides elves?
Can Boromir save you from himself?
And can Frodo destroy the Ring himself?
Well, I know Smeagol tried to kill him,
Cuz I saw them fighting at the Doom rim.
They both shunned poor old Sam
Man, they dig those Orc-armor shams!
Frodo's a lonely mid-aged greedy stick
And Sam turned him into a hick
But they knew they were out of tricks
The day that Smeagol fried.
Sam started singing

Bye bye, Mr. Smeagol, goodbye,
Drove up to the Prancing Pony but Pippin drank it dry
Them good old hobbits had the place going high
Saying "Once removed on his mother's side!"
Once removed on his mother's side...

Now for ten months we've been all alone
The Nazgul did things we couldn't condone
But that's not the way it used to be.
When the Nazgul stabbed Frodo in the breast
He was really supposed to hit his chest
But instead he missed and then was set on fire
Oh, and while Merry was looking 'round,
The Nazgul's sword, it pointed down.
Strider came running in
With a torch burning resin
And while Saruman chanted a spell
The Nine heard a voice oh-so-fell
And Legolas sings dirges well...
The day that Smeagol fried,
Legolas did sing

Bye bye, Mr. Smeagol, goodbye,
Drove up to the Prancing Pony but Pippin drank it dry
Them good old hobbits had the place going high
Saying "Once removed on his mother's side!"
Once removed on his mother's side...

Helter skelter in a Rivendell chase
The Nazgul pursued Arwen's case
As she galloped off real fast
Hoofs pounding on the grass
The Nazgul tried just to get past
But the horse Arwen was riding was too fast
Now Rivendell air is sweet perfume,
So Elvish healing powers bloom
We hoped Frodo would last
Ohh, but he almost missed the chance
Cuz Saruman tried to take the Ring
While Frodo kept on using Sting
Do you recall what elves still sing
The day that Smeagol fried?
They started singing

Bye bye, Mr. Smeagol, goodbye,
Drove up to the Prancing Pony but Pippin drank it dry
Them good old hobbits had the place going high
Saying "Once removed on his mother's side!"
Once removed on his mother's side...

Oh, and there they were all at one place
A horde of men and Elves in place
With no time left to call more men
So come on Gandalf hurry, Gandalf split!
Gandalf still misses the hick
But fire is the Balrog's only friend
And as I watched him take the bridge
I clenched my staff, felt like a midge
No wizard with much power
Could throw him from his bower
And as that whip climbed high into the cave
To grab my leg, he started to rave,
And Saruman my death did crave
But then poor Smeagol fried
He was singing

Bye bye, Mr. Smeagol, goodbye,
Drove up to the Prancing Pony but Pippin drank it dry
Them good old hobbits had the place going high
Saying "Once removed on his mother's side!"
Once removed on his mother's side...

I Met and Elf who had the blues
and I asked for any hobbit news,
But she just sobbed and turned away.
I went down to look o'er the gore
Where there was a city years before
But the dead there said the bells would never play
And in the roads the horses screamed
The dying cried, and the elves, they dreamed
But not a word was spoken
A lot of legs were broken
And the three whom you admire the most,
Frodo, myself, and Smeagol's ghost,
We caught a ship headed for far coasts
After the One Ring fried
And all were singing...

Bye bye, Mr. Smeagol, goodbye,
Drove up to the Prancing Pony but Pippin drank it dry
Them good old hobbits had the place going high
Saying "Once removed on his mother's side!"
Once removed on his mother's side...

Bye bye, oh, the One Ring, goodbye,
Drove up to the Prancing Pony but we ALL drank it dry
Them good old hobbits had the place going high
Saying "Once removed on his mother's side!"

I wanna make a correction to that link at the bottom, it's www.xanga.com/singingangelashley2 sorry for the mixup! It seems it includes amiright in the URL for some odd reason...

I agree, brilliant. I don't care if the pacing was off in some spots, this should have more votes.

Ash - January 06, 2005 - Report this comment
I ask the same questions, all the time... i finally figured it out though. In my dreams I capture little energy monsters and eat them, so when i wake up I'm all energized like the Energizer bunny!

(SOTM) I love the films (never read the books). but this was a little confusing for me.

(SOTM) Anyone who does this song gets kudos from me, and this had some artful writing throughout.

I don't know which was funnier, the parody or your comment about little energy monsters. Good job.
Rick D - February 11, 2005 - Report this comment
This is one song I won't tackle. It's almost as long as those movies. Amusing if you're a fan, still well written if you're not.

I can tell you put a ton of work into this. Good job. And ditto Luke's and Claude's comments.
Phil Alexander - February 20, 2005 - Report this comment
Thought I'd commented on this one before - great piece of work, Ash. Incidentally, the reason it included amiright in the link was that you only gave the www. bit, not the whole http:// - it'll make the assumption that it's a a relative link, rather than a full URL/

(SOTM) I know what you went through, writing a parody of American Pie --- I've written one, too, and it's a lot of work. Excellent effort here!
John Jenkins - February 21, 2005 - Report this comment
You get a lot of degree of difficulty points for tackling the original song. Very well done.
Ash - February 23, 2005 - Report this comment
Phil - thanks, I'll remember that. Johnny - isn't it tough?!?! lol John J. - Thanks! Spaff, Luke and Claude - Glad to know my humor outside of parodies is appreciated as well as my work itself. Everyone who voted - YOU ROCK!

SOTM--excellent work, Ash! I can NOT believe I didn't read this before today! I am such a sucker!! Sorry! This is LOVELY!

And yes, I am in a little bit of a fight with MysteryGoat now...; )

Ethan Mawyer - February 28, 2005 - Report this comment
SOTM - this is a tough song and it's pretty well done for the most part, but i had some trouble with some parts. first of all, Frodo was certainly not middle aged 33 is pretty young for a Hobbit and i don't see how Sam turned him into a hick. Also, what's a bower?
2nz - February 28, 2005 - Report this comment
I'm glad this has more votes now ;c)
Ash - March 01, 2005 - Report this comment
Thank you guys so much! Ethan - Sam just always seemed to be a sort of gentle redneck to me... and a bower is like that little thing that sticks out of the sides of towers. like a balcony. Arwen - haha, that's okay, I'm just glad you liked it! Thank you! Everyone who voted/commented - thank you so much!
