The Lyrics

Been a while since I posted anything. Enjoy this all you 'GIANTS and LOTR fans. Most of what is referenced here comes from the hobbit, but there's other bits from LOTR and elsewhere. :c]
He’s a foreign man
He’s not a Dwarven man
But several times he’s born again
And really he’s a wizard of this land
With big plans…

Bushy eyebrows under brim of pointy, cool hat
He watches over you
And his name is Gandalf and he’s Grey
Though he’s blunt and grumpy when honest
He makes a habit helping those hobbits
And his name is Gandalf and he’s Grey

He brings some very big news
To friends who never wear shoes
They’re a simple people and they love tilled earth and presents and booze
Whether you would like it or not
An adventure is what he’s got
Get on your trusty pony, too slow walking, make him trot
Won’t need your handkerchief
What a thing to cause you grief, you silly thief

Bushy eyebrows under brim of pointy, cool hat
He watches over you
And his name is Gandalf and he’s Grey
Though no dirt is older than Gandalf
He comes in handy in any stand-off
And his name is Gandalf and he’s Grey

[Smoke-ring Blowing Solo]

Not an Elvish man,
Sometimes a selfish man,
Galadriel has felt this man,
So really he is quite a ladies man,
when he can…

There's an order he belongs to
You’re assigned a color, like blue
You live so many lives, it’s Groundhogs Day times twenty-two
You must respect his big staff
He is taller than many giraffes
Started killing X-men off and joined another sci-fi cast
Grey beard of grumpiness
When Middle-of-Earth’s a mess, never fear

Bushy eyebrows under brim of pointy, cool hat
He watches over you
And his name is Gandalf and he’s Grey
Other wizards might think it boring
He laid his helping hand upon Thorin
And his name is Gandalf and he’s Grey

(and all you hobbits:
See the fireworks made by a
Gandalf who is Grey)

Come in two by twos and be winners
He’ll have a stranger making you dinner
And his name is Gandalf and he’s Grey

Bushy eyebrows under brim of pointy, cool hat (and all you hobbits)
He watches over you (fight some Orcish jerks alongside)
And his name is Gandalf and he’s Grey (Gandalf who is Grey)

Through a WOODed place that’s quite MURKy
Kill you a spider, fry it like jerky
Then go brag to Gandalf who is Grey

Bushy eyebrows under brim of pointy, cool hat (and all you hobbits)
He watches over you (See there’s lots of perks to work with)
And his name is Gandalf and he’s Grey (Gandalf who is Grey)

He can get some help from those Eagles
And knows the story-line behind Sméagol
And his name is Gandalf and he’s Grey
