The Lyrics

Here it is, Arwen: The greatest of all rock bands doing the greatest of all plays.
When I find Denmark in rotten trouble
father ghostly comes to me.
Misinterpret wisdom:
"Not to be."
And in late hours of darkness
he is standing right in front of me.
Misinterpret wisdom:
"Not to be."

Not to be, not to be, not to be, not to be.
Misinterpret wisdom:
"Not to be."

And when my broken-hearted mother with my uncle chose to be
that's a lousy answer.
Not to be!
His head from body parted, that really should be done by me.
That's a better answer:
Not to be!

Not to be, not to be, not to be, not to be.
Is that my final answer?
"Not to be."

Not to be, not to be, not to be, not to be.
Misinterpret wisdom:
"Not to be."

(instrumental break)

And when the play is rowdy
and the royal family is watching
Claude will live tomorrow?
Not to be.
He'll wake up to the sound of vengeance
his conscience I am catching.
Land is plunged in sorrow.
Not to be.

Not to be, not to be, not to be, not to be.
We all die, such sorry.
Not to be.

Not to be, not to be, not to be, not to be.
That's my final answer:
"Not to be."

Not to be, not to be, not to be, not to be.
Misinterpret wisdom:
"Not to be."
The play, the play's the thing in which I'll please the Lady of the Ring.

It is SOOO impossible for me to indicate...through words in this comments box...how THRILLED I am with this parody, Michael!! First of all, it's WONDERFUL...so good. Even if I hadn't badgered you about it...it would still be great...but the fact that you did it for me, of course, makes it even better. Next time I'm in Jersey, I am SO hunting you down and paying you back...; ) THANK YOU!!!!
