The Lyrics

I know the original didn't have any spoken asides, I just thought they fit the characters :-)
You and I go into a fortress
It's full of quite evil things, I'd guess
Hack and slash, 'til the break of dawn
'Til one by one, they're all gone
Still uneasy, still very aware
Something evil lurks out there
Take a look, what do I spy?
99 Uruk-hai go by

99 Uruk-hai coming at us on the double
Get yer bow, I'll grab an axe
Look out, lanky, here comes trouble!
The big one at the front's for me
On him, I've got my beady eye
Making sure they all will die
As 69 Uruk-hai go by

(Legolas, spoken): 69? I thought there were... ah...

69 oafish thugs, 69 horrendous mugs
We're gonna kill 'em in a hurry
Of that there is no need to worry
They are no match for our might
We're gonna see them off this night
Hold on, shorty, that one's mine
As 49 Uruk-hai go by

(Gimli, spoken): 49? You'd better not be ahead of me...

49 from Isengard,
Saruman thinks that they're well 'ard
Everyone's a pussycat
[Legolas](I really wouldn't call them that)
[Gimli]With orders to eradicate
Obliterate, annihilate
Bodies piled up to the sky,
As 29 Uruk-hai go by

As 29 Uruk-hai go by

29 are left to fight
Lookin' like the score is tied
Another dozen each, or so
After that, we're good to go
Grab that sword, a souvenir
Just to prove that they were here
49 to 49
Last one left, that bugger's mine...

How could I have missed this when it came out. Excellent work, Adam. Great, great parody. Makes me want to see the movies again.

XD HAHAHA!!! That is so like them! I only have the HappyHardcore remix of 99 Red Balloons though, so I couldn't say how good the pacing was. Still, this was FUNNY!!! XD HAHAHA!!!

Ha, great idea, great ending and great capture of the movie dynamic between these two. Still great on this re-read.

Loved this one loads and loads! Inspired choice of OS, and perfectly executed - loved how the personality of Legolas and Gimli shone through. 99 555's for this one - if only I could!

Followed Wendy here - I'm always up for a dose of LOTR spoofing. Super entertainment. Nice to see work like this still getting its due after almost nine years. Would that some of mine have the same fate. 555
