The Lyrics

It's been fully ten days since Wendy Christopher submitted her last Lord Of The Rings parody (and eleven since my last on this subject). We'll therefore salute a wizard who quite possibly ranks as THE most memorable character in the Ring trilogy and The Hobbit. The original song presents a few overloaded lines, but I'll give it a whack anyway. ;D

Look! That must be him.
It's the Grey Pil-grim.
He visits Bilbo in The Shire.
Gandalf - The Grey
Long beard and large hat,
But he's more than that.
He wears Narya, the Ring Of Fire.
What will - he say?

He knows the Dwarf folks, and he is loved
By all the Elves.
He'll try to save humankind -
Save from themselves!

He won't do one thing -
Won't wield The One Ring,
For Sauron's evil - curse has made it dire.
It will betray.
When Saruman craved pow'r,
(He) Trapped G. in Orthanc's tow'r.
It was a most un-ple-sant stay!

Gandalf! Bad Day!

He slew the Balrog - and then died from
That awful fight.
But now what's this that we see?
How can it be?
Gandalf's all right!
He's Gandalf The White!

Gandalf is reborn.
Rohan, blow your horn!
The Dark Lord's dreaded - reign will now expire.
Here comes the light.
Of his great deeds we sing
For he crowned Strider king.
Behold the great Gan-dalf The White!

One song at a time, we're putting the silly back in Silmarillion. ;D

Fun song! It's good to see LOTR songs still on the site, especially with the Hobbit out in theaters. Enjoyed singing in my head.
