The Lyrics

Wendy's back, and to celebrate this return here's a Lord Of The Rings parody. Unlike elves in other literature, legends, and role-playing games, my elves will always be Tolkien Elves...tall, lithe, wise, and almost superhuman. As an added touch, I use an original song by The King. If he sang these words, would he be "Elfis Presley"? ;D
Oldest, most noble of the races
That tread the grounds of Middle Earth,
From olden times, each one embraces
The love of beauty, craft, and mirth.

'Though they know of Men and mistrust Dwarves,
They would keep to themselves.
They're the First Born,
Those wonderous Elves.

Taller than Men yet fair and slender,
They leave no tracks on snow or leaf.
'Though they don't age or die, befriender,
They can be killed or die of grief.

They will live in vales and wooded lands
But not where a drawf delves.
They're The Eldar,
Those wonderous Elves.

And you'll find the Elves in many tales
In books on Tolkien shelves.
They're amazing,
Those wonderful Elves!

Party at Elrond's in Rivendell tonight. Bring your own One Ring. ;D

*sigh*... I'm sorry the uno-bomber's back again, Ribber, that's just not fair. I have been looking forward to this ever since you mentioned it yesterday - and you certainly didn't disappoint :^) I can totally imagine this as a soundtrack while they're wafting around looking regal. Beautifully done - and with King 'Elfis' singing it, how could anyone resist? A huge 555
