Parody Song Title:

"What If Smaug Was Killed By Us"

Parody Written by:

Tim Mayfield

The Lyrics

As imagined by Bilbo Baggins.
That Smaug has hot flame, it would kill me
He's such a credit to his race
If you were faced with him with all his roaring
Would you complete this suicidal mission

Oh yeah, yeah Smaug breathes heat
Yeah, yeah Smaug smells food
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

What if Smaug was killed by us?
A hobbit like one of us
If a short man made a fuss
Tell me, would they write a poem?

If Smaug had a place how would it be high?
Would it be near the sea?
I'm needing some assistance, where should he be?
In some small cavern or a crevice or a perch on some dark mountain

Oh yeah, yeah, Smaug tempts fate
Yeah, yeah, Smaug is screwed
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

What if Smaug was killed by us?
Sliced and diced by one of us
Ring in hand that golden band
Will provide the proper way
Then that old dragon's gonna pay
With Sting in hand we'll make him moan
Slice right on through till we hit bone
I guess you could say it's time to slay

And yeah, yeah, Smaug will die
Yeah, yeah, Smaug is through
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

What if Smaug was slain by us?
Inside job by one of us
Risk the danger that we must
Appetite is overgrown
And his wings seem so overflown
Stole this ring from that Gollum
Sneaking close to that big problem
I have to scale it all alone
I've no more time left to postpone
So I hope they put me in a poem

I thought TOS was bad until I heard a recent R&B cover that was annoying to no end. I gave this 5s for being a vast improvement over TOS.

Hey what is TOS anyways Red Ant? Nice parody Tim. 555.

Thanks Red Ant and Huff.

TOS means 'The Original Song' which in this case most folks call 'If God Was One Of Us'.

Maybe so, Tim, but the official title is "One Of Us," which you got right. I think it's a good parody too.

I think it's a good parody too. Three flaming fives for Smaug.
