The Lyrics

Nine for mortal men, doomed to die

...I couldn't resist the mental image of a chorus line of high-kicking ringwraiths
What good is lying undead in a tomb?
I come, and so do they
Ringwraiths are on their way, Sauron
Here come the Wraiths today

Seek out the One Ring
It's down in the Shire
Almost a holiday.
Ringwraiths are on their way, Sauron
Here come the Wraiths today

So to the Shire
Ithilien
Come find this Baggins
He's a halfling
And he's got
The Master's One Ring

No use permitting
Some hobbit or elf
To unforge the ring away
Go get the Ring, and slay halflings
Here go the Wraiths today

We used to be nine mighty
Mortal kings, yeah
And we had these wizzy
Little rings, yeah

But..
The rings had power, and
After we died, yeah
We came back to be
At Sauron's side, yeah

But recently the Master's
Started naggings
Go and get the Ring
From nassty Baggins

A shame we can't find him or anything
Except when he puts on
The One Ring

We caught up with that Baggins down in Bree
At Weathertop, we stabbed that little flea
What good is lying near death in the gloom
Come, we'll escape the fray
Life slowly ebbs away, Halfling
Come with the nine Ringwraiths

And Frodo B
And Frodo B
You're coming with us, we will make you
And to Mordor
\\\\ We ////
\\\ Will ///
\\ Take //
\ You /

And now he's crossing
A dried-up ol' stream
To follow him should be safe...
Torrent has come our way, oh damn
Washing us all away, oh DAMN!
We're wet now, the nine Ringwraiths

Nine high-kicking Ringwraiths in the style of the "Camelot" song from Monty Python and the Holy Grail!

Funny you should say that, Rex: I was thinking the same thing as I was writing this... Maybe something like:
We're wraiths of the Lord Sauron
We act like there's a war on
We seek the Ring
From that Halfling
'Cause Baggins is a moron
We're riding out from Barad-dur
And speak like German characature...

...or something like that

It's been almost a year since RotK, but we still continue to do LotR parodies, the subject/book/movie series will probably never kick the prancing pony bucket o ale, buy the Shire farm or stop pushing up the Rivendell daisies, it'll come back to remind us long after it's time, just like the nazgul and... OK, this rant is getting ridiculous, I better stop now. :-)

Brilliant, Philbo ... I can't help thinking of Michael Palin in "The Life of Brian" saying "Wewease Woger!" ... "Wook out -- it's the WingWaiths!" ;-)
