The Lyrics

I finally overcame the writer's block that assaulted me as soon as 2nz encouraged LOTR parodies this week. I was completely clueless for a bit. However, this is a song from the POV of Sauron, who, I'm sure, was a tad bit frustrated with the fact that he had no body and/or way of doing his own dirty work, and his henchmen were SO incompetant when it came to capturing the Ring from a inconsequential Hobbit!
Today had better be the day
That those idiots bring me the Ring
By now I'm wondering how
Any of them ever was a King
I don't believe that any of them
Really knows a thing about "The Sau'"

Backbeat the word is on the street
That a Hobbit has the Ring of Power
He's short; it shouldn't be a sport
They should find him easy to devour
I don't believe that any of them
Should get in the Tower of "The Sau'"

And all the roads the Hobbits walk are winding
And all the light from Gandalf's staff is blinding
There are many things that I
Would do if I just had
My body now

If they're lazy
Who's gonna be the one who saves me?
I'm left to wait
For worthless Ringwraiths

Today they'd better find a way
Before the flags of Gondor unfurl
By now I could've somehow
Just possessed a stupid guy named Quirrel
I don't believe that any of them
Could outfight a girl for "The Sau"

And all I hear from them is constant whining
And all my hopes are dwindling and I'm pining
There are many things that I
Would do if I just had
My body now

If they're lazy
Who's gonna be the one who saves me?
I'm left to wait
For worthless Ringwraiths

If they're lazy
Who's gonna be the one who saves me?
I'm left to wait
For worthless Ringwraiths

If they're lazy
Who's gonna be the one who saves me?
Who's gonna be the one who saves me?
Who's gonna be the one who saves me?

Good question/angle!
Hmm... maybe those guys were trained by Hans Blix? :-)

I like the subtle Harry Potter reference midway through.

Thanks, Know 1...they sure turned out to be HUGE freaking failures in the efficiancy department, didn't they?? And 2nz...HOORAY...i'm glad you caught the HP reference!! With the POA coming in June, you may soon find a shift in my lyrical focus...

Wow, this board is full of LOTR fans! Good parody
Arwen - January 15, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks, Laurence! We are the few...the proud...the LOTR geeks.

Could Sauron having no body be the reason we haven't heard any more from Oasis recently?
Arwen - January 27, 2004 - Report this comment
interesting theory, pickle...thanks!

Oasis did your song - 'Live Forever'!

Spotted this from the comments - another good one, Arwen: say, is there anyone left in LOTR who hasn't had a song about them yet?
Arwen - January 28, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks so much, Phil! Do you mean of the songs I've written, who still needs a song? I think just about everyone has one on the site...but as far as my lyrical efforts go...I'm not done...unless you count the So Long parody...which mentions just about everyone. Anyway...I'm working on a Sam one right now...Actually, it's done...but I'm not very pleased with it, so I'm reluctant to post it. I'd also love to write one for Merry & Pippin...and Gandalf...and Bill the Pony...and well...let's just say that I'm SO far from being done with the LOTR collection. By the time I'm finished, it will be suitable for a 6 CD/12 Cassette collection from Time/Life...=)

A "Bill the pony" parody, eh? I do like that idea, maybe "A pony called Bill" to "A horse with no name" or something like that. I'll look forward to it, Arwen, whatever :-)

Just checking out another one of your older works...I gotta say, it was really good! I'm giving it a perfect 5-5-5. :)
