The Lyrics

The mandatory Tolkien parody
Gondor calling to the faraway lands
the war is declared, the swords are on our hands
Gondor calling to the Races Free
the bonfires are lit, the fight is on the spree
Gondor calling, now don't deceive us
Phoney Sarumania has to bite the dust
Gondor calling, see the hatred burns
in Hornburg the tide of the Orc hordes turns

The Fourth Age is coming, Dark Lord's coming in
Bloodshed expected, the ranks growing thin
Orcs have start'd running , but we have no fear
Cause Gondor is calling - we'll fight by the river

Gondor calling to the Pelennor field!
Get sword now you Free Men, put on helm and shield!
Gondor calling the zombies of death
Fulfill now your oath - and draw another breath
Gondor calling - now show out your flag!
Cause while we arrived we had sails which were black
Gondor calling, see the stakes are high
We want to get that one with the Lidless Eye

The Fourth Age is coming, the hobbits sneaking in
Ring is destroyed, the Dark Lord growing thin
The Eldar are waning, but Men have no fear
Cause Gondor is calling and King comes by the river

Now get this -
Gondor calling, yes, I was there, too
An' you know what they said? The King has come true!
Gondor calling, the rings are undone
Fourth Age has come, and Sauron is gone
Gondor Calling!

I never felt so much ALIVE!

One of those LotR ideas I wish I'd come up with. :-)

The Clash's documentary was Westway To The World - this ought to be a way to the West? Good one!

Great job, Susanna. The lighting of the beacons of Gondor in The Return of The King was one of my favorite parts of the entire trilogy of LOTR movies --- the cinematography and the music of that sequence made watching it a thrillingly emotional experience. Peter Jackson dramatically conveyed the awesome, immense distance the beacon-relay covered. The beacons of Gondor were lit by hardy, ever-vigilant soldiers standing sentinel on cold mountain slopes and summits, one after another, in a relay that lasted all through the night and into the following day. Brilliant and emotional visual storytelling at its best!

A good portion of Tolkien has songs within the LotR. I believe this song could easily become part of all of the original songs quite well. It has a dignity and grace that makes it seem like this is a fitting tribute rather than an actual parody. Well written, excellent pacing, and a fluid-like poetry make this song you've written worthy of 555.

It was pretty good. It does a sufficient job. However Phoney Sarumania I'm not sure is all that good a term, perhap other retarded made up words like Ridonkulous, or fanticulous. Or write down the Bob the Builder song. Telatubbies would work just as well.
