[Page 4] Lord of the Rings (to the tune of "King of the Road") Sauron: Orcs, wargs, and evil things, I have sent to get the ring One ring is all I need To do my most dastardly deed. Ah, but, Frodo has what I need, Object of all my greed. And when I get the ringI'll @ring I'll@ be Lord of the Rings. (chorus) I'll rule all the dwarves and elves and every man All of the hobbits, in every land. And every living thing in every cave. Soon all Middle-earth will be my slave. Gandalf stands in my way For this he'll have to pay. When he is finally killed, my @My@ first wish will be fulfilled. First I must get this thing Th' one and only ruling Ring And when I get it I'll be Lord of the Rings. (repeat chorus and verses ad nauseum) TAKE THE PATHS OF THE DEAD (to the tune of "Cast Your Fate to the Wind") Aragorn: Sauron's orcs are marching fast; The battle time has come at last So, even though that way I dread, Still I must take the paths of the dead. That Denethor not be thrown down, I must swiftly go to his home town. My men, who've followed where I've led Will follow through the paths of the dead. So Eomer, if you've such great <word is corrupted> My men and I will leave you here. You must go to fight in our stead, If we come not through the paths of the dead.

Orcs and goblins: With an army-full, with an army-full, With an army-full of orcs, we'll see their worth. Sauron: He's got the fiercest men of Rohan, Riding terrible swift steeds. He's got the fiercest men of Rohan, but With an ar y-full @army-full@ of orcs, with an army-full of orcs, We will stop their lousy valient deeds. Orcs and goblins: With an army-full, with an army-full, With an army-full of orcs we'll stop their deeds. Sauron: He thinks that he can ill @kill@ the Nazgul, Fierce black riders of the sky. He thinks that he can kill the Nazgul, but With any army-full of orcs, with an army-full of orcs, Ga-andalf will be the one to die.

THERE IS NOTHING LIKE THE RING (to the tune of "There is nothing @Nothing@ Like a Dame" from "South Pacific") Orc s argeant @sergeant@: We got orcs and we got trolls, We got Shelob taking tolls. We got wargs out in the forest, We got Nazgul scaring souls. We got Balrog in Moria, And a lot of evil things; What ain't we got? We ain't got the ring. There is nothing like the ring, Nothing in Mordor There is not a single thing That is anything like the ring. HEY HEY, WE'RE THE NAZGUL (to the tune of "Hey Hey, We're the Monkees") The nine Nazgul: Here we come, flyin' through the sky; If you try to withstand us, you will surely die. And hey hey, we're the Nazgul Look at us flyin' around. If your name is Frodo Baggins, We're here to knock you down etc. [Page 7] ON THE HILL WHERE I LIVE (to the tune of "On the Street Where You Live" from "My Fair Lady") Frodo: I have often climbed up this hill before, But it never seemed to give me such a thrill before. I've been far away, Now I'm back to say. I'm staying here on the hill where I live. And oh! that non-transient feeling, Just to know that I'm finally here. That great, magnificent feeling, that at last I'm finally free of all my fear. Sam is planting trees out in Hobbiton; Pippin and Merry are out somewhere having fun. But here am I, I'm content to lie On the grass of the hill where I live. I'M GANDALF THE GREY, I AM (to the tune of "I'm Henry the Eighth, I Am") Gandalf: I'm Ga ndalf @Gandalf@ the Grey, I am, Gandalf the Grey I am, I am. I've helped hobbits for many a year,The last of which was old Bilbo here. And Every @every@ one was a Hobbit; N ow @Now@ I'm helping Frodo and Sam. It's my greatest task, I'm Gandalf Gandalf the Grey I am. We have many other titles, such as "I Am the Leader of the Rohirrim", "Way Over In Mordor", "Hello, Frodo", "Sam", "I Don't Believe It", and we'd appreciate hearing from you if you'd like to see more.
