The Lyrics

Gandalf got run over by a balrog
Walking on the bridge at Khazd-dm
You may think there's nothing dead below there
But we all saw the pit become a tomb

We were taking the cave shortcut
Through the mines of Moria
When we saw the fire demon
And we figured we were toast without butter

But then Gandalf went to the front
Told the 'rog to settle down
It was High Noon in the darkness
Sheriff Grey told Bal "get out of town."

Gandalf got run over by a balrog
Walking on the bridge at Khazd-dm
You may think there's nothing dead below there
But we all saw the pit become a tomb

No the balrog didn't listen
Shot some fire toward all of us
Called us babies, fags and pussies
And said Gandalf was a pimple full of pus

Then the two went at each other
Gandalf grabbed it by a ball
The balrog screamed and torched poor Gandalf
And the two of them began to fall

Gandalf got run over by a balrog
Walking on the bridge at Khazd-dm
You may think there's nothing dead below there
But we all saw the pit become a tomb

We should have listened to Led Zeppelin
Taken the Misty Mountains Hop
But the wargs had looked real hungry
And they had wanted to use Aragorn as pop

Old Gray Gandalf he's a goner
He had looked White as a sheet
At least the balrog's not a problem
We can spread our picnic stuff out now and eat

Gandalf got run over by a balrog
Walking on the bridge at Khazd-dm
You may think there's nothing dead below there
But we all saw the pit become a tomb
Glenn Worthman

A few minor pacing problems, but great idea, funny. I give you 4, 5, 5.

Very funny parody. The recent increase in LotR parodies is just because of the movie, sure, but it's still a blessing.

TOS came out in the eighties. As for the parody itself, it was good except for the pacing. I'm gonna go with 4, 4, 5 as my vote.

Actually, Scream...aka Not As Smart As I Think I Am...the original song was released in San Francisco in 1979...to city-wide adoration. It didn't hit the national charts until 1984...but who honestly gives a shit?

yea..... thats very nice poo..... but honestly, dont spam. ANYWAY!! lets get back to the parody, i thought is was good. like scream the pacing was a little off. that second verse needed to rhyme, i looked at it 1000 times and i still couldn't find a rhyme. but overall good job
