The Lyrics

[Legolas]
We were off to fight them
Fiends from Mordor
The wizard said to me
"Here comes another lot"
And then he buggered off
With Pippin at his side
I saw him ride away
And felt cold in-side

Got on a sprightly horse
You sat behind, of course
I had a feeling
It may break under you
To Pelennor, now
To fight a battle
Against many evil foes
We'd cut the things in two

[Gimli]
They had hoards of those orcs
They had bloody great trolls
And I thought when I saw them
We may never get old
Then you pointed ahead
At an army or three
You said there were
Uruk-hai waiting for me

[Legolas]You are too small
[Gimli]You're too pretty
It's true, don't get snitty
[Both]When we both finished counting
You wept at the score
The axes were swinging
While a hobbit was singing
We headed for Gondor
Then fought through the night

And the men of the Minas Tirith guard
Were fighting through the day
While the beacons all lit up
For Rohan aid

[Gimli]You're no fun
So I've said
[Legolas]There's no sense in your head
And your feet turned to lead at the Paths of the Dead
[Gimli]Keep away from my delf *
No-good lousy wood-elf
I'll kick you up the arse
If you kill off the last

[Both]And the men of the Minas Tirith guard
Were fighting through the day
While the beacons all lit up
For Rohan aid

[Legolas]I was on ninety-one
[Gimli]I hit another one
You stole my kills from me
My count was but two
[Legolas]My arrows took them out
Counted them as my own
Can't take them all alone
We killed all we ran into

[Both]The men of the Minas Tirith guard
Were fighting through the day
While the beacons all lit up
For Rohan aid
* Delf -- (an excavation; usually a quarry or mine)

This is so good, and it absolutely runs rings round the feeble attempt Shane Ritchie made on the same song on the 'Eastenders Christmas Party'. I love to listen to Kirsty MacColl's music, and I enjoyed every part of the LOTR trilogy. Fabulous!

Arwen will kill me (she knows why..) but this is really good, Adam; and to one of my favouritist ever songs! Arwen, I've got some work to do, and some humble pie to eat....555

So...then there was this one time, when I just sat there and smirked. Oh wait...that was THIS time. Get to work, KR!

(SOTM) DKTOS, But thanks for continuing my education on LOTR. A nice read. One of these days I'm going to have to rent this trilogy and watch it. That is when I have about a week of free time.

(SOTM) I can't follow any of these Lord of the Rings parodies.

(SOTM) Seems like a good example of the so-called 'felk' music (or does that term apply to fantasy as well as sci-fi?). anyway, nice job.

(SOTM) A cleverly crafted work with some LOL bickering here. 555

(SOTM) All the good comments to LotR parodies have already been taken so IĀ'm making a visual:

(SOTM) DKTOS Good read.

I love the Pogues; the original is one of my favorite Christmas songs. Not huge on LOTR though -- I read it a long time ago, saw the first movie but not the others. Anyway, very well crafted, though I'll be surprised if I ever hear the word "delf" used in casual conversation. Great stuff.

I have been unable to get into LOTR, but this seems like a well constructed parody.
Phil Alexander - February 20, 2005 - Report this comment
Excellent, Adam. I fancy we'll soon be able to produce a LOTR parody book from amiright that's as long as the original ;-)

Thanks for introducing me to a fantastic original song. I hadn't heard it before but it's definitely going on this year's Christmas mix CD. You did a splendid job matching up your version with the original; I particularly liked the back-and-forth between Legolas and Gimli. So, anyway, cool; now I gotta get back to my delf.

good work, but on LOTR, of which I'm not overly familiar - but definitely 5s-worthy

I'm a sucker for LOTR too, and you capture the mood between Gimli and Lego very well.
