Elven Queen

Ode To Galadriel - Sung To The Tune of 'Killer Queen'

She keeps herself to herself underneath the sky
With an Elven Ring
Invisible to Sauron's Eye
She built up her home for all Elves to roam
In Lothlorien, and try to remain unseen, never spy'd
By day or night

She's an Elven Queen, so beautiful that it's obscene
Don't tempt her or she'll turn green
She knows how to read your mind
With wavy hair and scary eyes
She passed the test , she'll never die...

To avoid complications
She never took the Ring from him
But instead she'll head West, and her spirit will dim
Met an Elf called Cirdan, went to the Grey Havens
Where you'd sail away if you're that way inclined
(She's an Elven Queen)
Elrond came too from Rivendell (naturally)
But Arwen couldn't care less
Married to Ellessar

She's an Elven Queen, so beautiful that it's obscene
Don't tempt her or she'll turn green
She knows how to read your mind
With wavy hair and scary eyes
She passed the test , she'll never die...

Sailed o'er sea she was willing to take Hobbits F. and B.
Then later an Elven Prince
Brought with him Gimli
To the Undying Lands, a dwarf - a dwarf
But she let him be

She's an Elven Queen, so beautiful that it's obscene
Don't tempt her or she'll turn green
She knows how to read your mind
With wavy hair and scary eyes
She passed the test , she'll never die...

She'll never die...

Ode To The Fellowship Of The Ring


(sung to the tune of Bohemian Rhapsody)

Frodo
Is this the real thing-
Is this just fantasy-
Put on The One Ring-
And escape from reality.
Look at the Eye!
Searching the sky for me!
I'm just a Hobbit, didn't ask for respons'bility,
I was easy come, easy go,
A little high, little low,
Anyway the wind blows, doesn't really matter to me
To me

Elrond
"People! I must demand,
This thing be destroyed, and soon
Take it to the Cracks of Doom
People! Unite and stand
Against the evil hosts of Sauron"

Frodo
Elrond! I know
That I don't know the way,
But if I fail, the rest might reach Mordor
And carry on, carry on, because this really matters.

Gandalf
"Frodo, the time has come,
For us to send out our Nine,
(But don't go through the Mine)"

Frodo
Goodbye, Bilbo - I've got to go -
Gotta leave Rivendell behind, go to Mount Doom-

Bilbo
"Frodo -
(Give me back my ring!)
- I sometimes wish it hadn't been this way at all..."

Frodo
I see a huge silhouetto of a Balrog,
Mithrandir, Mithrandir will you face the evil demon?
Thunderbolts and lightning, very very frightening me-
Olórin, Olórin
Olórin, Olórin
Olórin falling doooowwwnnnn
I'm just a Hobbit, no-one can help me-

Fellowship
He's just a Hobbit, with this responsibility
Spare him his life from our corruptibility

Frodo
Easy come, easy go, will you let me go,
Boromir?

Boromir
"No, I will not let you go!"

Boromir
"Will not let you go!"

Frodo
Let me go!

Boromir
"No,no,no,no,no,no,no!"

Frodo
Oh Boromir, Boromir, Boromir let me go!

Boromir
"Where'd he go? The Hobbit's run away from me, from me, from me..."

Sauron
"SO YOU THINK YOU CAN USE IT AND HIDE FROM THE EYE?
SO YOU THINK I DON'T KNOW WHERE IT IS YOU RESIDE?"

Frodo
Oh, Gandalf - why'd you do this to me Gandalf?

Gandalf
"Just take it off, just take it right off of there!"

Frodo
I know this really matters,
That is why, you see,
Sam and I are heading, to the land of the Enemy
Any way the wind blows...

Ode To Sauron The Deceiver


sung to Queen's 'Don't Stop Me Now'

I've been in-cor-por-e-al for a long time,
Just an eye on the world turning inside out yeah,
And floating around in misery,
So don't stop me now, don't stop me
'Cause I'm back in the big time, back in the big time,

I'm an evil dude living in Mordor
Near a spider, defied by Hobbitses
My hordes of orcs passing by couldn't find 'em
I said, "Oh no! No! No!
They're trying to stop me!"

I'm burning up the sky, yeah!
Get down on your knees
You're gonna kneel before The Lidless Eye
Once I've seen you slowly die
I'm gonna make a pair of Hobbit slippers from you!

Don't stop me now,
I was having such a good time, I was killing them all!
Don't stop me now,
I just want to have a good time, so don't let it fall!

Don't stop me now (cause I'm having a good time)
Don't stop me now (yes I'm back in the big time)
Don't let The One Ring fall!

All my orcs are on their way to war
(With the humans and Elves)
I've got no arms or legs, I've got no control
Over your actions, why wasn't I told
You don't want the Ring, except to
Oh oh oh oh oh explode!

I'm burning up the sky, yeah!
Get down on your knees
You're gonna kneel before The Lidless Eye
Once I've seen you slowly die
I'm gonna make a pair of Hobbit slippers from you!

Don't stop me don't stop me
Don't stop me hey hey hey!
Don't stop me don't stop me ooh ooh ooh
(I like it)
Don't stop me don't stop me
In the big time big time

Don't stop me now (cause I'm having a good time)
Don't stop me now (yes I'm back in the big time)
I don't want to stop at all!

Ode To King Elessar and the Captains of The West
(sung to the tune of ‘We Are The Champions')

I've laid my proof
Down on the line
I've lived in exile
But comitted no crime
But now I've returned
To reclaim my throne
I've wandered the wilds
Of North Middle Earth
Now I've come home

And I mean to go on and on to Mordor and on

We are the Captains - of the West
When it comes to fighting
We're the best
We are the Captains
We are the Captains
No time for Nazgul
‘Cause we are the Captains of the West

I've not taken my crown
Gotta face Sauron's wrath
I've left the city under
TheProtectionOfPrinceImrahil
Of Dol Amroth
We're gonna leave Minas Tirith
We'll lay out our ruse
Sauron has issued a challenge before
All Middle Earth
And we ain't gonna lose

‘Cause we mean to go on and on to Mordor and on

We are the Captains - of the West
When it comes to fighting
We're the best
We are the Captains
We are the Captains
No time for Nazgul
‘Cause we are the Captains of the West

Ode To Lurtz
(sung to the tune of ‘Flash')
(I think Queen should be apologising to *us*)

Lurtz! Aha! Servant of Isengard!
Lurtz! Aha! He's big, buff and hard!

-(voice of Sauron) Build me an army worthy of Mordor!
-(voice of Gorbag) What news from Mordor, my Lord?
-(voice of Saruman) We have work to do!
-(voice of Gorbag) What does the eye command?
-(voice of Saruman) Rip them up.

Lurtz! Aha! He has all-over mucus!

-(voice of Gandalf) His treachery runs deeper than you know!
-(voice of Elrond) Our list of allies grows thin.

Lurtz! Aha! Captain of the Uruk-hai!
He'll kill ev'ry one of us
Slaughter ev'ry one of us
He'll slay with a mighty hand
Ev'ry man, ev'ry dwarf, ev'ry elf
‘cos he's mighty Lurtz!

-(voice of Legolas) We should not linger here, we must leave now!
-(voice of Aragorn) No - Orcs patrol the Eastern shore.
-(voice of Gimli) Recover my strength! Hmmph!
-(voice of Legolas) A shadow and a threat has been growing in my mind.

Lurtz! Aha!

-(voice of Aragorn) Run, Frodo. RUN!

Lurtz! Aha! He'll slay ev'ry one of us
Just an orc with a man's craziness
He knows nothing but bloodlust
But he can do no harm
After Aragorn, the King
Has chopped off his arm
Oh oh - oh oh

-(voice of Gimli) It has all been in vain!
-(voice of Aragorn) Not if we hold true... Let us hunt some Orc!

Lurtz!

- Prince Imrahil
