The Lyrics

This is sung by most of the characters from 'The Lord of the Rings'.
PRANCING PONY REGULARS:
Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?
Caught up in an epic, as escape from reality.
Open the book, take a good look and see.....

FRODO:
I'm just a Hobbit,
Is this my destiny?

RING:
Because I'm easy come, but won't go.

SAURON, FRODO, GOLLUM, BILBO:
It takes you high, takes you low
Anywhere the Ring goes,
Yes it really matters,
To me...

FRODO:
To me!

(Treebeard plays short piano 'hook')

BILBO:
Gandalf-just found a Ring,
Was a creature called Gollum's,
Now he's lost it, he is glum.
Gandalf-I thought death had come,
But wearing it just helped me get away!

(Haldir joins on drums)

Gandalf- ooh, ooh, oooh, oooooh!
Didn't mean to tell a lie.
But I will keep it safe until tomorrow,
And on, and on.
Though it doesn't really matter?!

(Tom Bombadil joins them, playing bass guitar)

GANDALF:
Too late! It's time has come!
Though I'm shivering with fear,
Give it up to Frodo dear.
Come on everybody-he's got to go.
Got to leave the Shire behind and face the truth!
Frodo-ooh, ooh, ooh, ooooh!

BOROMIR:
Anywhere the Ring goes.

FRODO:
I don't want to die.

GANDALF:
My boy, I wish It'd never been made at all!

(Eowyn plays a really excellent guitar solo!!)


OPERATIC SECTION !!!!!

MERRY, PIPPIN, FRODO AND SAM:

He is also known as Strider!
Nazguls tall and lairy,
Very very scary,

LEGOLAS:
Galadriel!

GIMLI:

LEGOLAS:

Lothlorie..en..en...en...en..en.!

FRODO:
I'm just a Hobbit, somebody help me!

ARAGORN:
He's just a Hobbit,
Give him some elevensies!

ARAGORN AND BOROMIR:
Spare him his life from this monstrosity!

FRODO:
Gollum come, Gollum go,
Will you let me go?!

GOLLUM/SMEAGOL:
Hate Baggins-NO! We will not let him go!

SAM:
Let him go!

GOLLUM/SMEAGOL:
Hate Baggins- we will not let him go!

O Precious mia, Precious mia!

FRODO:
By 'Precious mia' let me go!
Cause Sauron's got, real bad torture set aside for me
- for me-
For MEEEEE!!!

(Theoden and Denethor join in, guitars on overdrive!)

HARD ROCK SECTION!

SAURON:
So you think you can hate me and spit in my Eye!
So you think you'll destroy It and leave me to die?
Oh Frodie! Can't do this to me Frodie!
You'll never sneak in
And you'll never sneak right out of here!

(Eomer and Faramir help to finish off the rock section with even more screaming guitars, but Eowyn takes control with a stunning guitar solo!)

BALLAD SECTION TWO

PEOPLE OF GONDOR AND ROHAN:
Oooh yeah, oooh yeah, oooh yeah!

(They liked the guitar solo!)

ELROND:
Everything has mattered,

ARWEN:
Any one can see.

FRODO:
But why has it all mattered?
Why has it all mattered-to me?

(Saruman mockingly provides final piano solo accompanied by Wormtongue on guitar)

ALL!!!:
Any way - the Ring 'goes'!

(SMASH!!! SFX of Sauron being destroyed as the Ring 'goes' - undone in the fires of Mount Doom!)

THE END - FINALLY!!!

Really excellent use of the original here. Great work throughout. I was afraid you would end up using the original too much, but you made it work for the parody, rather than against it. Especially liked 'I'm just a Hobbit, somebody help me!', spitting in Sauron's eye, and the lesser-knowns of the LOTR world rockin' out as the song progresses.

The website was really good too.

Without much of an explanation as to why, I clicked on this baby with much trepidation. Congratulations on proving me wrong. Very VERY nice work!

I was ESPECIALLY fond of Haldir's drum playing...hehehe...and

He's just a Hobbit, Give him some elevensies!

I could honestly go on. But I won't. I Loved It. That's all.

Somehow, combining Queen with Tolkein works. I especially likes how you connected OUR Arwen's boy Orlando Bloom (Legolas) with the highest-pitched voice in the original song. (Ducks as she throws her handbag at him.) Whew, that was close.
