The Lyrics

For some reason, the thought of Elrond, in dreads and a beenie cap, jammin' on a steel drum, singing "Under the Sea", highly amused me. I decided to mix up the words a bit. Sing out loud with Jamaican voice inflection for full effect. (this song is being sung to Aragorn, if you don't figure that out from the first line)
I know you're a king by bloodlines
I'm sorry your plans were shot
You dream about having Arwen
But that is a scary thought
Just look at the war upon us
The age of the elves is gone
She's too good for you, be honest
What planet you living on?

Let Arwen Be
Let Arwen Be
What could be stranger
Elf and a Ranger
It's lunacy
This subject surely is taboo
So please just bid your love adieu
No more persisting
Please, I'm insisting -
Let Arwen Be

Down here, all the elves, we're moving
As off to the West we go
But Arwen, she's disapproving
She's sad 'cause she miss her beau
But Arwen is oh-so lucky
(She don't know the mess she's in)
One day when the beau get lonely
Guess who cheats with Eowyn!

Let Arwen Be
Let Arwen Be
You'll just abuse her
Why did you choose her
So hastily?
To be with you she'll have to flee
And waste her immortality
Plus, you've been reckless
With her big necklace
Let Arwen Be

(steel drums - lovely music)

Let Arwen Be
Let Arwen Be
I know it's love,
But that's not above
Our hierarchy
What does she got, a lot of wealth?
You're just a hazard to her good health
Each little hobbit thinks you should drop it
Let Arwen Be
Each mighty ent now knows my lament now
Let Arwen Be
Merry and Pippin know that you're trippin'
So just go home now
Leave her alone now
You've had my word now
Fall on your sword now
Let Arwen Be

Without Arwen, the only hottie in those movies would be the Balrog! (Gave you the precious vote anyway).

To "Watt Daddy": there isn't. The highest you can vote in any category is five because that's how many holes there are in each row. I'm sick and tired of having to keep mentioning it!

I'm surprised I didn't leave a comment last time I was here. LOTR will always be a divine source of parody inspiration, and this one is SO WORTHY cuz the chorus changes each time! So no sniffing!!! Tanty.

Hey I liked this one. I guess I missed it when it was new. Anyway, I vote 5-5-5; it was great.

Thanks to all who posted comments 5th. This was my first parody to hit the number one spot on the late Voting Boards. It was during that time that my head swelled to a dangerously large size, and I was rushed to the hospital with my head on a stretcher and my brain in a jar of formaldyhide. When I was finally released from the hospital, I found that it wasn't nearly as good as I thought it was. But it's good to get some reminders of the time that was before.

This is superb. The only thing missing is that extra section where he names all the Middle Earthians, and I'd be honored to come up with something for that section. The ent can get bend, As Sam joins the jam, Frodo plays oboe, Gets Gollum to scram, Yo, Pip keys the grip, Arwen plays and then... Seriously awesome job.

Aw man, 2nz! I was definitely debating over whether to do that part, but I decided against it because I didn't quite remember that part of the original song. You know how people get about pacing. ;-) Thanks so much for the comment!

LOL this kicks ass! I saw this and I thought, "Might be good for a laugh. Better check it out." This was good for... *counts laughs* ...about 119. I LOVE THIS SONG!

As a hobbitish gal who often finds herself sympathetic to Elrond, I found this fantastic! "May it be an evening star shines down upon you..."
