The Lyrics

A belated birthday present, Princess Elf....hey, airmail from the UK is slow!! :-)
She's a native of Wyoming
She's adept at spilling beverage
But her charming elvish candour
Often gives her extra leverage
She's a parodist par excellence
A diamond in the rough, but
Because she's just had a birthday
I'll reveal some other stuff

Do do do do, do do do do, do do do do, do do do do
Do do do do, do do do do, do do do do, do do do do


She's a messageboard Madonna
On The Only Thread That Matters
With her good friend Ashkicksass they're
Leaving weaker souls in tatters
And she wants to pump some Diesel
There's a guy she'd love to Vin
With her sharp wit she can play us
Like a new violin!

Do do do do, do do do do, do do do do, do do do do
Do do do do, do do do do, do do do do, do do do do


She's a Rings fanatic
Coz of her, many converted
And a guy called Tech Support Fred
Stalks her, acting all perverted
And she posted her first parody
A ditty she called “Frodo”
Way back in November of ‘03
Heylook how far she's come!

Do do do do, do do do do, do do do do, do do do do
Do do do do, do do do do, do do do do, do do do do


She's also a superhero
Elite Super Squad doth scare me
And she's got abundant powers
But she uses them so fairly
She will spend your cash quite freely
Max your Visa without shame
But if you're man enough to win her
Your life sure won't be lame

Do do do do, do do do do, do do do do, do do do do
Do do do do, do do do do, do do do do, do do do do


Will this parody continue?
One more thing I have to mention
Arwen's famous facial feature
It's that devastating POUT!

So happy birthday Arwen
I've run out of lines
And I won't ramble on.

Do do do do, do do do do, do do do do, do do do do
Do do do do, do do do do, do do do do, do do do do


I'll finish up this ditty
Happy Birthday once again

Happy belated birthday to Arwen...and congratulations on parodying such a difficult original song in her honor. 5-5-5!

brilliant again Kristof (I've got a macro now that does those three words for me with one tap) - you really nailed her (I mean scored...er..) with this one, and the rhythm was a treat

If I'd only known... my belated contribution has already been sent in, but it isn't better than this one. Might be funnier, but not better.

Okay, the submission rules state: "No parodies about other parody authors." So why was this even allowed? Parodies are supposed to be funny. This isn't even mildly amusing, even if it was written to honor someone's birthday.
No Name Given - January 31, 2005 - Report this comment
Probably because it didn't attack another parody author. That's my guess. Parodies that attack other parody authors aren't allowed.

Will it make you feel better, Craig, if I make Kristof write you a parody?
Kristof Robertson - February 01, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks for the feedback guys, although it really only matters what one person thinks of it anyway...glad you enjoyed it Arwen. And I would write Craig a parody, but I'm sure it wouldn't pass the censors...:-)
