O.K. It's karayoke time!!!
I figure since all of Canada is crying now I can't do much more harm so...

The song is Gandalf singing to Frodo..

DesertElf quietly walks onto stage dressed in her subduded white mummu and with a very deep bow of respect to Creed whom she thinks is the best band this side of the 60's[ Not to mention Scott Stapp being the 10th cutest guy in the world]she sings to the tune off " My Sacrifice"

When will, my friend, we meet again?
It's been a while since Khazad-dum...feels like forever.
Although I have some memories
of Balrog's roar and molten swords
I lost December.

When we left Elrond,
I was grey, and Saruman stood in the way.
Now I am flawless, I am White.
Came throught the darkness, back to the light.

My Sacrifice.

I've seen my share of loss and pain.
Oh, how quickly life can turn around in an instant.
Now with your friends I'll reunite.
We've got an Evil Lord to fight,
let's make peace here.

Now I am with you,
my son, my soulmate ,you're the one.
I'll fight the fire for you,
so you can find your way through.

My sacrifice.

I just want to say hello again.

I've had a blast at the Pony this week! And now it's Friday and I want to par-TAY! *turns on disco ball, revs up karaoke machine, steps up to mike in purple polyester muumuu* How's about a song to the tune of "Play that Funky Music White Boy"? This is an homage to the slang of the Prancing Pony which I am still trying to comprehend : )

yeah there was a lovely hobbit
movin at a party so grand
and all the watching ringers
decided it was *the* way to dance
when everything around me
got to start to feelin so low
then I decided quickly, yes I did
the Pony was the place I should go

yeah they were spongin and blendin
and swoonin over droolin
and just when it hit me
some ringer turned around and shouted
"Dance that happy mambo, Frodo!"
"Dance that happy mambo right."
"Dance that happy mambo, Frodo!"
"put on a muumuu and dance that
happy mambo til you die!"
til you die, oh til you die

now first it wasn't easy
learnin all the Pony lingo
my early posts were clueless
I thought I'd have to leave and go home
but now it's so much better
I'm mamboin in every way
and I'll never lose that feelin
of how I learned the language one day

yeah they were spongin and blendin
and swoonin over droolin
and just when it hit me
some ringer turned around and shouted
"Dance that happy mambo, Frodo!"
"Dance that happy mambo right!"
"Dance that happy mambo, Frodo!"
"put on a muumuu and dance that
happy mambo til you die!"
til you die, oh til you die

I tried to understand this
I thought that they were out of their minds
how could I be so foolish
to not see I was the one behind
so now I understand it
the drinkin, singin, and all the slang
I said I'll never leave here, no I won't
as long as the PP stays the same

yeah they were spongin and blendin
and swoonin over droolin
and just when it hit me
some ringer turned around and shouted
"Dance that happy mambo, Frodo!"
"Dance that happy mambo right!"
"Dance that happy mambo, Frodo!"
"put on a muumuu and dance that
happy mambo til you die!"

They shouted "Dance that happy mambo!"
"Dance that happy mambo!"
"dance that happy mambo!"
got to dance that happy Frodo mambo
(fade out)

O. K. an Encore was asked for so here it is
DesertElf slinks onto the stage, cat like, in her grace wearing her black skin tight mummu and yellow tinted glasses.After making a few appropriate political statements she sings to the tune of...

" I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" By U 2.

I have climbed the highest mountain.
I have run through the fields.
I gotta throw this Ring
into that chasm thing.

I have run, I have crawled.
I have scaled Moria's walls..scaled Moria's walls.
I've got a Ring to fling.
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for.
And I'm tired and don't want to look no more.

I was kissed by honey'd lips.
Felt the healing in her fingertips.
Elvyn Queen.
Won't you please take this Ring?
She spoke with the tongue of angels.
But when I offered turned into the devil.
The mirror boiled and smoked.
To this Ring's fate I am yoked.
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for.
Gotta climb up and find that firey door.

I believe that good will win.
To quit now would be a sin... would be a sin.
And, I'm no longer running.
I left my life.
I sold my home.
I carry this doom.
I will not shame.
I will not shame.
Those who believe in me.
So I'm gonna find what I'm looking for.
I won't quit 'till I find the mountains core.

All Right! Karaoke time once again!!
Evenstar
To the tune of All-Star by Smash Mouth

Somebody once told me that Middle-Earth would roll me
I ain't the strongest tool in the shed
He was lookin kinda dumb with his finger and his thumb
in the shape of a Ring on his forehead

Well, the Orcs start comin' and they don't stop comin'
But I re-forged the Sword and sent them all runnin'
Didn't make sense to take the Ring
Cause any way I'm gonna be King

Hey now, you're Evenstar, marry me, be Queen
Hey now, you're my lovestar, and you rule my scene
Not all that glitters is gold
Only shootin' stars break the mold

It's a cool place, but they say it's gettin' colder
And Sauron will rule before it gets older
But all of the Elves beg to differ
Judging by the hole in the Ringbearer's picture
The ice we skate is gettin' pretty thin
And we don't have a choice, we gotta jump in
My world's on fire, how about yours?
That's the way I like it til the Balrog roars!

Hey now, you're Evenstar, marry me, be Queen
Hey now, you're my lovestar, and you rule my scene
Not all that glitters is gold
Only shootin' stars break the mold

Somebody once quipped, "Can I build an Elven-ship?
I need to get myself away from this place."
And I said, "Yep, what a concept!
Couldn't bear that Ring myself
And you need a little change...."

Well, the Orcs start comin' and they don't stop comin'
But I re-forged the Sword and sent them all runnin'
Didn't make sense to take the Ring
Cause any way I'm gonna be King

Hey now, you're Evenstar, marry me, be Queen
Hey now, you're my lovestar, and you rule my scene
Not all that glitters is gold
Only shootin' stars break the mold

Not all that glitters is gold
Only shootin' stars break the mold

Ahh, not that everyone is sufficiently fed and loaded up with alcohol, FD saches up to the mike.
Here's a take off from an old Iron Maiden tune... (Be Quick or be Dead)

Be Watchful or Dead

coverd in muck and dripping with goop,
making your misery from slime and mud,
parading your bullies from your white tower,
investing Middle Earth's future in your schemes for more power,
You've got to watch the fellowship of nine-be watchful or dead

Sauron's eye in globe- the evil in your head...
be watchful or dead...
be watchful or dead

see the ring ruling all of our lives
see Sauron trying to pull at the ring
I bet you will fall on your face
your evil won't hold you a place

Sauron is crawling inside of your head
He says you must make an army of dread
Won't matter, you're wrong as long as there's
fight in those you would watch

Pull yourself together or you'll find yourself dead
be watchful or dead
be watchful or dead

*voice slowly fading* FD swishes muu muu and bangs head off of stage
