The Lyrics

The finale to Matthias' "Lord of the Dance" project, the splitting of the Fellowship

For the DKTOS's amongst you, you can download the MIDI here: it's still a little hard to follow, especially during the bits they're all singing, but IMO would sound great if recorded... apologies for the spacing of the columns, too.

Featuring Frodo as Pooh-Bah, Aragorn as Ko-Ko and Gollum as Pish-Tush
[Frodo:]
I think that I
Must say goodbye
For now I fear
That Boromir
Desires the ring
And he will bring
A real bad trip
On the fellowship
It pains, I know
E'en so although
It's apropos
That I must go
That I must go

[Aragorn:]
Why is it that
Gondorish prat
Aspiring
To get the ring
To get the ring
Made Frodo scared
I'm unprepared
For news that he
Left instantly
Now B is dead
And orcs have fled
Hobbits in dread
Chase them instead?

[Gollum:]
We saw today
Preciousss away
With Baggins who
We hatesss we do
We'll swim and swim
And follow him
Til we can snatch, can snatch
The preciousss back
We'll cuss and cuss
Becauss, becauss
We wants, we doess
The presh-ee-usss

[Aragorn]
And so,
Frodo thought he had to go
Give us the slip
And skip our trip
On board a ship
At quite a clip
So bid Pip! Pip!
To t'Fellowship


[Frodo:]
And so,
Although I hate to go,
It is my doom
The dark gates' boom
And Mordor's gloom
Ahead doth loom
The smokey plume
Up from Mount Doom


[Gollum:]
They go
So slow
Bagginsss, Frodo
We're following
The wretched thing
And wantss to wring
Neckss of halfling
And sso, ssslinking
We wantss the ring

[Gollum].. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. [Aragorn].. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. [Frodo]

.. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. Up from

The Ring.. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. The Fell-.. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. ..
And so slinking.. .. .. .. .. .. .. Owship.. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. Mount Doom, up
We wantss the ring.. .. .. .. .. The Fell-.. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. From Mount
And so slinking.. .. .. .. .. .. .. Owship.. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. Doom up
We wantss the ring.. .. .. .. .. The Fell-.. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. From

We wantss the ring.. .. .. .. .. The Fellowship.. .. .. .. .. Up from Mount Doom
We wantss the ring.. .. .. .. .. The Fellowship.. .. .. .. .. Up from Mount Doom


[FRODO, ARAGORN and GOLLUM]
The chances of success in this are quite remote
For a hobbit into Mordor in an elven coat
Who is leaving his companions not a single note
And is heading 'cross Anduin in a little boat

The chances of success in this are quite remote
For a hobbit into Mordor in an elven coat
Who is leaving his companions, not a single note
And is heading 'cross Anduin in a little boat

Quite remote .... elven coat .... left no note .... little boat

Now the Fellowship is ruined
And it may be his unduin
Because Gollum is folluin
Crossing over the Anduin
In a liiii-tllle
Boat

Did I mention that that was freakishly amazing?

Yeah, WOW. Excellent work Philbo. Really, I'd name a line but then I'd end up naming most of the song.

Just realized I didn't stop to say "thanks"... so thanks, Kristof, Alvin, Matthias, Matthias, Matthias, Matthias and 2nz ;-)
...I've actually been wanting to do this song for ages, but never had the right subject matter. It's such a fun song performed, too: I was in a Mikado parody many years ago, and the parodied version of this song was an absolute hoot (IMO better than the original). Must find the time to record this.

POTM - Jolly good, old hobbit!

I have the recording of this and it's very very good. Any chance of any sheet music? also that midi link is broken. Any chance of renewing it?
Phil Alexander - December 17, 2009 - Report this comment
Hi Richard - thanks :-)

For sheet music, find a copy of the Mikado somewhere: it's performed so frequently, I wouldn't be surprised if you can pick up a cheap copy somewhere. A brief google shows the MIDI turning up here: https://math.boisestate.edu/gas/mikado/webopera/mk110.html
