One of my favorite songs is "Danny Boy" AKA the Great Irish Love Song. So I decided it would be sweet if Aragorn sang it to Arwen, so... here goes.

 Evenstar
The Great Elvish Love Song

O Evenstar, the ship, the ship is calling.
From Rivendell, to the Misty Mountain side.
The summer's gone and all the roses falling;
It's you, it's you must go & I must bide.

But come ye back when love is in its power.
Or when Caradhras is hushed and white with snow.
And I'll be there in sunshine or in shadow.
O Evenstar, O Evenstar, I love you so!

But when ye come, and I am weakly dying,
And you still live, as live as you may be.
Ye'll come and find the place where I am lying,
And kneeling pray to the Vala there for me.

And I shall hear, though soft you tread above me,
And all my tomb shall warmer, sweeter be.
For you will bend and give me signs you love me.
And I shall sleep in peace until you come to me!

O Evenstar, O Evenstar,
I love you so!

o'er the hills and far away

even though we were all loath
we all stood and pledged our troth
to join and fight the foe today
o'er the hills and far away

o'er the hills and o'er the main
to Moria is our campaign
the Ring sets down our pathway
o'er the hills and far away

when duty calls me i must go
to stand and face another foe
but part of me will always stray
o'er the hills and far away

if i should fall to rise no more
as many comrades did before
then ask the horns and drums to play
o'er the hills and far away

o'er the hills and o'er the main
we trudge towards our campaign
the Ring commands and we obey
o'er the hills and far away

then fall in lads behind the drum
with colors blazing like the sun
along the road to come-what-may
o'er the hills and far away

Long Time Gone
(apologies to the Dixie Chicks and J.R.R.T.)

Daddy Twofoot on a front porch smoking
Looking out on a vacant field
Used to be filled with longbottom leaf
Now he knows it never will
Now Balin's King Under the Mountain
Bard, he leads the men of Dale
lotho's still eating too much for supper
And me I been a long time gone

[Chorus:]
Been a long time gone
I ain't seen Bagshot row since I don't know when
Long time gone
And it ain't coming back again

There's a lass like a rose blooming
Waiting for me on her daddy's farm
She always thought that we'd be together
Lord I never meant to do her harm
Said she could hear me singing to the alter
Me, I heard another song
I caught wind and hit the road runnin'
And Lord, I've been a long time gone

[Chorus:]
Been a long time gone
Lord, I ain't had a prayer since I don't know when
Long time gone
And it ain't comin' back again

[Instrumental]

[Bridge]
Now me, I went to Rivendell,
Tryin' to beat the big deal
Playin' down on long way
Gettin' there the hard way
Trying not to be found
Sleeping on the cold ground
Wishing on a cold star
Yeah I'm gonna go far

Now, Gandalf visites every other decade
Watching the children and the garden grow
We blow smokerings and ask what's cookin?
But I've got traveling in my soul
Now Lobelia got my spoons but not my smial
They've got money but they don't have class
The Sacksvilles got gifts but they don't have thanks
I think, I think, I think

The rest is a long time gone
No, I ain't hit the roof since I don't know when
Long time gone
And it ain't coming back
I said a long time gone
No, I ain't had second breakfast sine I don't know when
Long time gone
And it ain't coming back again

I said a long time, long time, long time gone
Well it's been a long time

Long time, long time, long time gone
Oh, it's been a long time gone

Long time, long time, long time gone
Yeah yeah

When I'm Softish Goo
(tune of When I'm 64)

When I get looser losing my shape,
Many years from now.
Will you still be singing me a Tolkien rhyme
Birthday greetings bottle of slime.
If I'd been out till quarter to three
Sticking to your shoe,
Will you still knead me, will you still feed me,
When I'm softish goo.
You'll be older too,
And if you say the word,
I could pillow you.
I could be handy, cleaning the floor,
When your drinks have spilled.
You can eat a mallow by the fireside,
I'll be roasting them by your side,
Doing the jiggle, digging the tunes,
Splitting into two.
Will you still need me, will you still feed me,
When I'm softish goo.

No More Ring
To janis Joplin- Me and Bobby McGee

Started out from Rivendell,
8 friends and a ring,
and it feels about as heavy as my heart.
Boromir went mad for it,
only evil does it bring,
and now i know that we will have to part.

I pulled out the ring,
and put it on my dirty finger,
I disappeared and headed for Emyn Muil.
Sam caught up with me just in time
he put his grubby hand in mine,
his is a friendship that I know is real.

A quest is just another word for when you have to do something,
even, even if you might die in trying,
All alone in the wilderness, two hobbits and a ring,
you know it's taking me and i only feel like crying,
hmmm-mmmm
I understand why Gollum only wants the ring.

From the cold Dead Marshes, to the foot of the Black Gate,
yeah Smeagol led the way and he stayed true,
I must trust him still, for he has apart to play,
yes, he will be there when the quest is through.

One Day he led us to our doom, but we just slipped away,
The ring was something he could not overcome,
But I'd hoped he could come back, so I could too someday,
Now I stand here before the cracks of doom.

The ring of Power in my grasp and none to bar the way,
Gollums fate has now become mine too
I could keep it for my very own, till the end of days,
but good Smeagol has helped see our quest through
hmm-mmm
Now Sam and I have nothing left to do.
Ladada, ladadada, ladadadada, ladadadada, no more Ring, mmm-mmm
Ladadadad, ladadadada, ladadadadada, no more Ring -mmm-mmm,
LAdada, Ladadadada, ladadadadada, yeah said Gollum he's got his ring, yeah,
Lawlalawlalalawlala, lalalalawlalalawlalaw, Sam and I are saved upon wings,
yeah, Sam is my gardner, sam is my friend, sam is my servant with me to the end come on, come on Gandalf now, come and save us from here.
we're alone alone alone alone alone alone alone....
Hey, hey, hey, the end of the Ring.... yeah!

My Daughter's Gone
(Adapted from Dido's My Lover's Gone)

My daughter’s gone
Our Evenstar will shine no more
I left at dawn
Against my wish I let her go
Returns no more

I will not watch the ocean
My daughter’s gone
No earthly ship will ever
Bring her home again
Bring her home again

My daughter’s gone
I knew that time would be our last
No more her song
The tune from Valinor has past

I sit alone
While I watch the ocean
My daughter’s gone
No earthly ship will ever
Bring her home again
Bring her home again…

The Good Ol' Ringette Game
 (Sung to the tune of 'The Hockey Song' by Stompin Tom Conners)

Hello out there, we're on the air
It's Ring-ette night tonight.
The tension grows, the horn of Gondor blows
And the Ring rolls down the ice.

The Spider jumps and the hobbits bump
And Gollum goes plump insane,
The home crowd roars, Frodo scores
At the good old Ring-ette game.

Oh! The good old Ring-ette game
Is the best game you can name
And the best game you can name
Is the good old Ring-ette game!

Second period.

The hobbits run but Shelob stuns,
The home team trails behind,
But they grab the Ring and go plodding in
And they're down across the line,

They cross the crease like they’re about to cease,
They travel like a horse gone lame,
But we see them slide the Ring inside
It's a one-one Ring-ette game.

Oh! The good old Ring-ette game
Is the best game you can name
And the best game you can name
Is the good old Ring-ette game!

Third period, last game of the Third Age too!

Oh take me where the Ring-ette players
Face-off over the brink,
And Saurons Cup is all filled up
with bitter dregs for the losers to drink,

Now the final flick of a Ring-ette stick
And Gollum tries to block in vain,
But the Ring is in – the Fellowship wins
That good old Ring-ette game.

Oh! The good old Ring-ette game
Is the best game you can name
And the best game you can name
Is the good...old…Ring--ette…game!

But He’s Still got Curly Hair!
To the Beatles' "I Saw Her Standing There"

Well he was just fifty - one,
Hadn't got a whole lot done,
And the way he looked, he had an Elvish air.
Now he’ll never count with his fingers,
But he’s still got curly hair!

Then he looked at me,
And I, I could see,
That his mind was gone, it was no longer there!
Now he’ll never count with his fingers,
(ooooo)
But he’s still got curly hair!

Well my heart went boom,
When I saw Mount Doom,
And I knew we’d have to climb!

Oh, we climbed the great height,
Then he got into a fight,
Now the Ring is gone, ask me if I really c-are,
Now he’ll never count with his fingers,
(ooooo)
But he’s still got curly hair!

Well my heart went boom,
When I saw Mount Doom,
And I knew we’d have to climb!

Oh, we climbed the great height,
Then he got into a fight,
Now the Ring is gone, ask me if I really c-are,
Now he’ll never count with his fingers,
(ooooo)
But he’s still got curly hair!

In The Uruk Hai
tune: In the Navy, by the Village People

Where can you find pleasure, search the world for treasure,
learn forced marching, tortureology?
Where can you begin to make your dreams all come true
on the land or on the sea?
Where can you learn to rend, pillage a village or skin
every thing alive,
study Middle Earthen cartography?
Sign up for the white hand or sit in the Gap of Rohan
when your team and others meet.

In the Uruk Hai, yes, you can sail the seven seas.
In the Uruk Hai, yes, you can put your mind at ease.
In the Uruk Hai, come on now people, make a stand.
In the Uruk Hai, can't you see we need another White
Hand.
In the Uruk Hai, come on, protect the Sauron land.
In the Uruk Hai, come on and kill your fellow, man.
In the Uruk Hai, come on, Uruk, and make a stand.
In the Uruk Hai, in the Uruk Hai.

They want you! They want you! They want you as a new
recruit!

If you like adventure don't you wait to enter
the recruiting office fast.
Don't you hesitate, there is no need to wait;
they're signing up new Uruk fast.
Maybe you are too young to join up today
but don't you worry 'bout the thing
for I'm sure there will be always the good Uruk Hai
maurauding the land and sea.

In the Uruk Hai...

They want you! They want you! They want you as a new recruit!
They want you! They want you! They want you as a new recruit!
..But..but..but I'm afraid of Gondor!
..hey..hey..look, men...
I get queasy even watching it in the Palantir!
They want You! - Oh my goodness!
They want you! - What am I gonna do in Helm's Deep?
They want you! They want you!
In the Uruk Hai.

In the Uruk Hai... (fade out)

I Need a Hero
Tune of : Holding Out for a Hero, Bonnie Tyler

Where have all the good men gone, the ones with steely jaws?
Where's the Numenorean warrior to fight the rising odds?
Isn't there a Rightful King upon a fiery steed?
Late at night I toss and I turn and I dream of what I need.

I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the end of the night
he's gotta be strong and he's gotta be fast
and gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the morning light
He's gotta be sure and he's gotta be soon
And he's gotta be larger than life
Larger than life

Somewhere in this Middle Earth between the Shire and the Sea
Somewhere just beyond my reach there's someone reaching back for me
Racing on the thunder and rising with the heat
It's gonna take a Ranger to sweep me off my feet

I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the end of the night
he's gotta be strong and he's gotta be fast
and gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the morning light
He's gotta be sure and he's gotta be soon
And he's gotta be larger than life
Larger than life

Up where the Misty mountains meet the sky above
In Rivendell or Lorien he seeks his lady love
In Rohan or in Gondor or even in Bree
I could swear there is someone somewhere watching me

Through pursuit by Orcs and Wraiths,
the Watcher and the Balrog in the caves
Through the rain and the chill, and the mud
I can feel his approach like a fire in my blood

I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the end of the night
he's gotta be strong and he's gotta be fast
and gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the morning light
He's gotta be sure and he's gotta be soon
And he's gotta be larger than life
Larger than life

Moderator Clan
(to tune of Secret Agent Man)

There's a clan who leads their lives of danger
to everyone they meet they're not strangers!
Any non-G post that's made
A high price must be paid
Odds are it won't live to see tomorrow!

(CHORUS)

Moderator clan
Moderator clan
your powers' beyond number
without you its not the same!

Beware of pretty names you may find
A pretty name can hide an evil mind!
ooh be careful what you say
or your post may go away
odds are you'd regret it tomorrow!

(CHORUS)

Lith's swinging a mithril boot one day
Rosie's thwackin' with a ladle the next
oh don't let the wrong words slip
Prim's got her hands on her hips
Odds are your rude posts won't see tomorrow!

(CHORUS)

There's a new man who everyone calls
His name's Doctor Gamgee and thats all!
Sh dont make an obscene peep
He just got his kid to sleep!
Odds are your rude words wont see tomorrow!

B-I-N-G-O, in honor of Frodo's name change.

Sung to the child's tune
 (Don't forget to clap . . . though you will have to explain to your coworkers!) :-)

There was a hobbit, had a Ring,
and Frodo was his name-O
F-R-O-D-O, F-R-O-D-O,
F-R-O-D-O
and Frodo was his name-O.

Who sought the elves in Rivendell
with hobbit friends and Strider?
*-R-O-D-O, *-R-O-D-O-
*-R-O-D-O
And Frodo was his name-O.

Who took the quest: Distroy the Ring!
and south he Gandalf Followed?
*-*-O-D-O. *-*-O-D-O,

And Frodo was his name-O.

When Gandalf fell, Boromir spied,
and tried to take the Ring-O.
*-*-*-D-O, *-*-*-D-O,

And Frodo was his name-O

So Sam and He, (Gollum made three),
they broke off, bound for Mordor.
*-*-*-*-0, *-*-*-*-0

And Frodo was his name-O.

Who climbed the stairs, the fire dares,
and Gollum's bite does save him?

And Frodo was his name-O

On the Dark Side
To the tune of Elvis’ "In the Ghetto"

On a cold and gray Middle-Earth morn, another little baby Balrog is born, on the Dark Side... on the Dark Side.
And his momma cries.
Cause if there's one thing that she don't need, it's another little fire demon to feed, on the Dark Side.. on the Dark Side.

People don’t you understand, this demon needs a helping hand, or he’ll grow to kill a grey old wizard some day.
Now take a look at you and me, are we to blind to see, or do we simply turn around and run the other way.

Well Middle-Earth turns…
And a hungry little demon with a flaming nose plays in the brimstone as a hot wind blows on the Dark Side.. on the Dark Side.

And his hunger burns…
So he starts to roam the cave one night and he learns how to burn little dwarves on sight on the Dark Side.. on the Dark Side.

Then one night in clear confusion, he comes across an old fool, he strikes him down, but the bridge gets broke, he falls real far and it ain’t no joke, and his mama cries.

As the orcs gather round and stare in the pit,
they laugh and shout “You stupid git!”
on the Dark Side.. on the Dark Side.

As her demon dies,
On a cold and gray Middle-Earth morn, another little baby Balrog is born, on the Dark Side... on the Dark Side.
