The Lyrics

Just the bit from the Two Towers, I guess... slightly chronologically challenged, so any pedants who want to point out that they don't get into Ithilien until after crossing the Dead Marshes, please don't bother ;-) Oh, and try and sing the word "Fellowship" as though it only has one syllable
Little ditty about Frodo and Sam
Two Shire hobbits trekkin off to Ithilien
Frodo's gotta throw the ring into Mount Doom
Sam says "Frodo, yeah, I'm a comin' too"

Creepin' in shadows, behind the rocks and trees
Gollum is sneakin' up
The ring is what he needs
Frodo say "It's Gollum, lets get him
Before he gets me
He hates those elven ropes
So he'll do what I please."
And Tolkien say:

Oh yeah quest goes on
Long after the Fellowship
Of the Ring is gone
Oh yeah their quest goes on
Long after the Fellowship
Of the Ring is gone, they walk on

Frodo sits back, the ring's getting heavy
Wonderin' what the future will bring
"Well you know Sam, we gotta cross the Dead Marshes"
Gollum says "Master, I can help with that thing"
And Tolkien say:

Oh yeah quest goes on
Now the next book, Two Towers is gone
Oh yeah their quest goes on
Now the next book, Two Towers is gone, they walk on

In mountain rock
There's a hole
In it Shelob, gonna eat you whole
Hold on to the One Ring, a little bit more
Under the baleful eye
Of Barad-Dr

Little ditty about Frodo and Sam
Two Bag End hobbits trekkin' into Mordor land

Thank you for the kind comments... I guess the next installment has to wait till this time next year - after all, I wouldn't want to give the ending away ;-)

the Lord of the Rings rocks my socks! And this is the first LOTR parody I've read. But hey, it's a great one.
