Musicals? MUSICALS!!! Here is a song from Doc .
THE TWO TOWERS: Act II, scene 5

[Horns and Strings begin the fanfare vamp as Legolas
looses his arrow into the flyspace above stage]


[TRIO]
Hello, Gandalf!
Well Hello, Gandalf!
It's so nice to have you
Back where you belong.

Your lookin' Swell, Gandalf.
We can tell, Gandalf.
With your Wizard's Might
and Robes of White,
You're goin' strong!

We feel our luck changin'
Aragorn's Ranging
After two young hobbits
Caught by Uruk-Hai!

So . . .

Grab your axe, Gimli!
Follow the orcish tracks, Nimbly!
Gandalf is back!
Let's stick it to the Eye!

[Gandalf--musical bridge]
I've been away from the fellowship too long,
Under the wide Kazhad Dum.
But we need not chase the hobbits more! This song
Segues us now to the Ents . . . Hroom, Hroom, Hoom!

[Trio + Gandalf, in Barbershop harmony]
The Ents! Hroom, Hooooooooooooooom!

[Trio]
And so, Gandalf,
[Gimli]
Where to go, Gandalf?

[Gandalf--pointing to Aragorn]
Let us Keep his word,
and like a bird we'll fly.

[all]
To . . . ?

[Gandalf]
Edoras, Gimli!
You, me and Legolas, Gimli,
Goin' with Aragorn today . . .

[Aragorn]
Goin' to where Wormtongue holds sway,

[all]
Going to find a way to beat the Eye!

[exit, stage left]

The Took Strikes Again
(to the tune of Band on the Run by Paul McCartney)

Well, it was only just a little stone, and I really
meant no harm
Then that Balrog came up from the fiery depths and
Gandalf bought the farm-
The Took strikes again-
The Took strikes again
I cried a lot, but did I learn? The second time's a
charm
The Took strikes again- the Took strikes again.

Well, then Merry and I got caught by orcs, and we were
carried through the night
I got the idea to drop my elven brooch- hey, I finally
did something right!
The Took strikes again-
The Took strikes again-
Treebeard came and bailed us out, and helped us with
the fight!
The Took strikes again,
The Took strikes again.

I thought things were going pretty well when Gandalf
was found alive
Then I just had to steal that Palantir, and then
everything took a dive
The Took strikes again-
The Took strikes again-
I saw way more than I should have done, and now I try
to stay alive
The Took strikes again -
The Took strikes again.

I'm a tower guard, and I look real smart, and I fought
so very hard
Right up until I met that troll- that stupid tub of
lard!
The Took strikes again,
The Took strikes again.
But please don't swoon, you'll see me soon, serving
dinner to the crowd
The Took strikes again -
The Took strikes again.

The holographic image slowly fades to black and winks out!

The One Ring
To the tune of Bali Hai from the musical South Pacific by Rogers and Hammerstein

These days you live in a deep'ning shadow
Lost in the middle of a foggy sea
Longing for peace, for another time where
The sun shown upon us, you and me

But the One Ring may call you
Any night, any day
In your heart you'll hear it call you
Come away, come away

'Put me on,' It will whisper
In the soft evening breeze
'Here am I, I have the Power
Come to me, come to me.'

Gone are your hopes,
Your own special dreams.
Lost on the hillside
And scorched by the steams
'Step by step you'll find me
Growing heavier every day
Here am I, I have the Power
Come to me, come to me'

To the tune of "Free Bird" by Lynyrd Skynyrd

If I leave here tomorrow
Would you still remember me?
For I must be trav'ing on now
'Cause the Grey Havens is where I got to be.

But it I stayed here with you, Sam
Things would never be the same
'Cause the pain's too hard to bear now
And my life you cannot change.
And my life you cannot change.
And my life you cannot change.
You know I can't change.

Bye bye Sam. It's been a sweet life
That we've shared here in the Shire
But please don't look so sad now
We'll be together again in time.

But if I stayed here with you, Sam
Things would never be the same
'Cause the pain's too hard to bear now
And my life you cannot change.
And my life you cannot change.
And my life you cannot change.
You know I can't change.
Sam, you know I can't change.

I Miss Him
sung to the tune of "On My Own"


And now I’m all alone again
No way to go to get back home now
Without a hole, without a friend
No Hobbit to say hello to.
When loneliness is near I just make believe he’s here

Those times I walk along the shore
Eyes open but I’m dreaming
I think of him and I’m happy with the company I’m
keeping
Don’t need to go to bed
So I can live inside my head.

On my own,
Pretending he’s beside me
All alone, I talk with him for hours
Despite this, I feel his love surround me
And as the years go on and on, I hope
He’s not forgot me.

In the night, Earendil shines like silver
Lonely ships sit empty by the shoreline
In the darkness, the trees reflect the starlight
And all I see is him and me, and how it used to be

But I know, its only in my mind
That I’m talking to myself and not to him
And although I know that he has Rose
Still I hope, that he will come.
I miss him.

And when the walk is over
I’m alone with just old memories
Without him, I feel a part is missing
The trees are bare and everywhere
The streets are full of strangers
I miss him

And every day I’m yearning
That he will come, we will be together
Without me, his world will go on turning
A world that's full of happiness
That I have never known.
I miss him.

I miss him
I miss him
I wait here all alone.

Sung by Frodo in the Dead Marshes
 to the tune of "I feel pretty" from Bernstein's West Side Story

It’s so pretty
Oh so pretty
It’s so pretty and shiny and bright
And I pity anyone who can’t hold it tonight.

It’s so charming
Oh so charming
It’s alarming how charming it feels
And so pretty that I hardly can believe it’s real.

See the pretty ring on that finger here
What can that possibly be ?
It’s the ruling ring
It’s a dangerous thing
It’s the death of a king
It’s the death of me !

It feels heavy
And it whispers
And it’s pulling me into the void
And I don’t know
If it ever can be destroyed !

Its Profit Time
  ( to 'Twilight Time' by the Platters)

Heavenly shades of green are falling . . .
. . . Its profit time.
Out of the book the cash is calling . . .
. . . Its profit time.
When happy, loyal patrons see the end of 'King'
. . . We'll get them back here with a broadway play.

Deepening critics gather louder . . .
. . . As our plot is spun.
Fingers of shame are all here pointing . . .
. . . As rehearsels begun.

I count the dollars darlings till we're on TV . . .
. . . JRRT rolling while were here in profit time.

Springtime for Sauron and Barad Dur
(a tune by Mel Brooks)

Middle-earth was having trouble, what a
sad, sad story
Needed a new leader to restore its former glory
Where, Oh where was he? Where could that man be?
We looked around and then we found
The man for you and me.
And now it's..

Springtime for Sauron and Barad Dur
Mordor is happy and gay
We're marching to a faster pace
Look out, here comes the master race

Springtime for Sauron and Barad Dur
Winter for Minas Tirith
Springtime for Sauron and Barad Dur
Come on, Witch King, go into your dance

I was born in Numenore, and that is why they call me
Angmar
Don't be stupid, be a smarty, come and join the Nazgul
party

Springtime for Sauron and Barad Dur
Orcstep's the new step today
Ringwraiths swoop from the skies again
Mordor is on the rise again

Springtime for Sauron and Barad Dur
Corsairs are sailing once more

Springtime for Sauron and Barad Dur
Means that soon we'll be going
We've got to be going
You know we'll be going to WAR!
