Boromir Floating Forever
to the tune of Strawberry Fields Forever

I see you goin’ down, 'cause you’re going in an Elven boat.
Doesn’t seem real ‘cause there are no more orcs about.
Boromir floating forever.

Dying seemed easy, your eyes closed, mist covered everything you see.
It was so hard to be Someone but it’s all done now, it doesn't matter much to thee.

You are goin’ down, 'cause you’re goin’ in an Elven boat.
Nothing to feel, though once you kept orcs in a rout.
Boromir floating forever.

No one you thought could hear your horn, although you blew it high and low.
That is they were, you know, too far to aid your fight, that is, I think it was too bad.

He is floatin’ down, 'cause he’s floatin’ in an Elven boat.
No longer feels all the arrows through his coat.
Boromir floating forever.

Always, or often, they’ll think of you, but you know they now carry your dream.
I think you know they’ll miss your voice – it was all wrong,
that is, I think you’d disagree.

Floatin’ gently down, 'cause he’s going to Eternity.
Drifting away so softly he’s gone to the Sea.
Boromir floating forever.
Boromir floating forever.

My Horn Has Broken
to the tune of  “Morning Has Broken”

My horn has broken, oh how that harrows!
Uruk has spoken, like a fat toad.
Echoes are ringing, just like an arrow
Raised up and springing straight from the bow.

Fleet the pain's new fall, poking my body,
Like a fast curve ball, hard as you please.
How airy this strangeness - for I feel oddly,
Sporting a batch of holes like a cheese.

The wind is whistling over my torso,
Has a few more holes now it can play -
Fluting a tune to call those who can sew:
Only pincushion Gondor can claim.

Bor-bor-bor-bor Boromir
to the tune of Barbara Ann, by the Beach Boys

(Bor bor bor bor Boromir)
(Bor bor bor bor Boromir)
(Bor bor bor bor Boromir)

With Boromir
(Bor bor bor bor Boromir)

I have no fear
(Bor bor bor bor Boromir)

Boromir
(Bor bor bor bor Boromir)

You got me talkin’ and a dozin'
Walkin' and relaxin'

Boromir
(Bor bor bor bor Boromir)

I’m just a waif, looked for by a Wraith,
Had Boromir so I thought that I’d be safe.

With Boromir
(Bor bor bor bor Boromir)

I have no fear
(Bor bor bor bor Boromir)

You got me talkin’ and a dozin'
Walkin' and relaxin'

Boromir
(Bor bor bor bor Boromir)

(Bor bor bor bor Boromir)
(Bor bor bor bor Boromir)
(Bor bor bor bor Boromir)

With Boromir
(Bor bor bor bor Boromir)

I have no fear
(Bor bor bor bor Boromir)

Boromir
(Bor bor bor bor Boromir)

You got me talkin’ and a dozin'
Walkin' and relaxin'

Boromir
(Bor bor bor bor Boromir)

Tried hidin’ – ew!
Tried camo, too
Tried Kung Fu
But I knew they wouldn't do

With Boromir
(Bor bor bor bor Boromir)

I have no fear
(Bor bor bor bor Boromir)

You got me talkin’ and a dozin'
Walkin' and relaxin'

Boromir
(Bor bor bor bor Boromir)

You got me talkin’ and a dozin'
Walkin' and relaxin'

Boromir
(Bor bor bor bor Boromir)

I've Been Killin' Uruk Hai
Sung to the tune "I've Been Working on the Railroad"


I've been killin’ Uruk Hai,
On Amon Hen.
I've been killin’ Uruk Hai,
Cause I really don’t like them.
Boromir soon will be a pin cushion.
Lurtz really has it in for him.
Don't you hear Merry shouting
“Boromir, blow your horn?"

Boromir, won't you blow,
Boromir, won't you blow,
Boromir, won't you blow your horn?
Boromir, won't you blow,
Boromir, won't you blow,
Boromir, won't you blow your horn?

Someone's in the forest with Boromir.
Someone's in the forest, I know.
Someone's in the forest with Boromir
Strumming on their bow and arrow.

Fee, fie, fiddle-e-i-o.
Fee, fie, fiddle-e-i-o-o-o-o.
Fee, fie, fiddle-e-i-o.
Strumming on their bow and arrow.
