re: Lyrical Re-writes

At Elevenses someone played this, and I love the song, but the lyrics are definitely lore-breaking.  So instead of The Wreck of the Edmunds Fitzgerald, here's The Tale of the Battle of Five Armies.

 

The legend lives on from the Dunadain on down

Of the hobbit they called 'Bilbo Baggins'

The lad, it is said, wrote a book that was red

Then the skies above Mordor turned gloomy

When a load of iron dwarves searching far for Erebor

Came and left Bilbo's pantry quite empty

That good dwarven crew left not a bone to be chewed

When the tales of Mithrandir came early

 

Bilbo was the pride of the old Tookish side

Living up on Bag End in Hobbiton

As big as hobbits grow, he was bolder than most

With a stew and good chicken well seasoned

Concluding dwarf terms that Gandolf confirms

They then left fully loaded for Bree land

And later they sang when Bree Town's bell rang

Could it be the north wind they'd been feelin'?

 

The wind in the trees made a tattle-tale sound

And a roar broke out through the treeline

And every dwarf knew, as Bilbo did too,

T'was the trolls of the Trollshaws come stealin'

The dawn came late, second breakfast had to wait

When the daylight of Mithrandir came shinin'

When Midyear's Day came it was freezin' rain

And they faced a long climb through the mountains

 

When Goblintown came, the old Took paved the way sayin'

Fellas, it's too tough to free ya

At seven pm was when Gandolf came in, he said

Fellas, here's some weapons for ya

Then Bilbo yelled in he had goblins comin' in

And the good dwarven crew was in peril

And later on still they all met king Thranduil

Came the ride of their lives in some barrels

 

Does any one know where old Mithrandir goes

When the days turn the minutes to hours?

The dwarves they all say that they'll make Lake-town Bay

If they put fifteen more miles behind em

They might have split up or they might have capsized

They may have broke deep and took water

But they still remain, and aren't here to play games

With yer wives or yer sons or yer daughters

 

In old dwarven halls, the Arkenstone sings

In the rooms of Smaug's gold-piled mansion

The old dragon screams when Bilbo can't be seen

And flies to Long Lake to kill Dale-men.

And farther below Bard's heart he did show

Drew back the black arrow and sent her

And with Smaug taken low all the mariners now know

With the tales of Five Armies remembered

 

In a musty old hall in the Shire they played,

In the back of the Bird and the Baby

They sang about rings, and dragons with wings, and

The Tale of the Battle of Five Armies.

The legend lives on from the Dunadain on down

Of the hobbit they called 'Bilbo Baggins'

The lad, it is said, wrote a book that was red

And the skies above Mordor turned gloomy

re: Lyrical Re-writes

Heard this last Wednesday @ Tunes & Ales...had to do this...   :)

 

Land of Gondor, music by Men At Work.

 

Traveling on a worn-out pony

On a ranger trail, heading for west Bree

I met a strange hobbit, she caught my interest

She told me about Second Breakfast

And she said

 

Do you come from the land of Gondor?

Where the White Tree grows by the White Tower?

Can't you hear the loud horns from Mordor?

You better run, you better take cover

 

Buying bread from a man in Rohan

He was six-foot-four, without his boots on

I said, "Do you speak the old language?"

He just smiled and gave me a bite of his sandwich

And he said

 

I come from the land of Gondor

Where blood does flow and men wonder

Can't you hear the foul orcs from Mordor?

You better run, you better take cover

Yeah

 

Drinkin' in an inn in Buckland

Listening to a Weatherstock band

I said to the dwarf, "Are you trying to tempt me

Because I come from the land of the Old Kings?"

And he said

 

Do you come from the land of Gondor? (oh yeah yeah)

Where the White Tree grows under the Tower?

Can't you hear the loud horns of Mordor?

You better run, you better take cover

 

Living in the land of Gondor

Where the White Tree grows by the White Tower

Can't you hear the loud horns of Mordor?

You better run, you better take cover

 

Living in the land of Gondor

Where the Steward growls inside the tower

Can't you hear the Nazgul of Mordor?

You better run, you better take cover

 

Repeat x2

re: Lyrical Re-writes

50 Ways to leave the Shire - Paul Simon :)

 

 

"The problem is coming to Bag End" he said to me

"The answer is easy, you should take the road to Bree

I'd like to help you in your struggle with the Ring

There must be fifty ways to leave the Shire"

 

He said "I really trust your hobbit attitude

Furthermore, I hope the One Ring won't be lost or be abused

So I'll repeat myself at the risk of being rude

There must be fifty ways to leave the Shire

Fifty ways to leave the Shire"

 

You just slip out the back, Jack

Make a new plan, Stan

You don't need to be Coy, Roy

Just get yourself free

Make tracks in the dust, Gus

You don't need to discuss much

Just drop off the key, Lee

And get yourself free

 

Ooo slip out the back, Jack

Make a new plan, Stan

You don't need to be Coy, Roy

Just listen to me

Make tracks in the dust, Gus

You don't need to discuss much

Just drop off the key, Lee

And get yourself free

 

He said "It grieves me so to see you in such pain

I wish there was something I could do to help you hurry on your way"

I said "I appreciate that, would you again explain

About the fifty ways"

 

He said "We don't have time for you to sleep on it tonight

And I believe before morning we'll see Nazgul in the night"

And then he touched me, and I realized he probably was right

There must be fifty ways to leave the Shire

Fifty ways to leave the Shire

 

You just slip out the back, Jack

Make a new plan, Stan

You don't need to be Coy, roy

Just get yourself free

Make tracks in the dust, Gus

You don't need to discuss much

Just drop off the key, Lee

And get yourself free

re: Lyrical Re-writes

Maybe “Eleventy-one Ways to Leave the Shire”?

None of the names in the chorus are hobbit names.  Unfortunately, there aren't many one-syllable hobbit names. 
But I found a few in Tolkien and jotted down some ideas (in no particular order):

Get a new job, Nob
Find a new bed, Ted
Let sails unfurl, Pearl
Here's a good tip, Pip
Bust out' yer cell, Bell
Better not stay, May
Away from the Hill, Will
A turn of the knob, Hob
Be on the lam, Sam
Find a hotel, Bell
Get on your way, May
Give it a whirl, Pearl
You know the drill, Gill
Time to jump ship, Pip
Climb o'er the sill,  Bill
Close up yer crib, Nibs
Join a new club, Chubb
Give 'em the slip, Pip
Time that you fled, Ted
'bandon your woes, Rose
Without delay, May
Take a li'l trip, Pip
Think you should scram, Sam
Become a stray, May

re: Lyrical Re-writes

The Eagles...Hotel California...

 

On a dark Bree-land highway, 

cool wind in our hair

Warm smell of our pipe weed, 

rising up through the air

Up ahead in the distance, 

we saw the shimmering lights

Our heads were heavy and our sight was dim

we had to stop for the night

Barliman stood by the doorway;

We heard the Bree Town bell

And I was thinking to myself,

"Remember, your name is Underhill"

Then he lit up a candle 

and he showed us the way

There were voices down the corridor,

I thought I heard them say...

 

Welcome to the Bree Town Prancing Pony

Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place)

Such a lovely place

Plenty of room at the Bree Town Prancing Pony

Any time of year (Any time of year)

You can find it here

 

His face was plump, rough and twisted, he was one of Gandolf's friends

He's not a very pretty, pretty boy, he's a pretty hefty man.

Having a drink in the main room, our small halfling quintet.

Some dance to remember, some dance to forget

 

So I looked up at Pippin,

"Mead, it comes in Pints?"

He said, "I haven't seen that much spirit, my dear, 

since I was eleventeen nine"

And still those Nazgul are calling from far away,

Riding up in the middle of the night

Just you watch them slay...

 

Welcome to the Bree Town Prancing Pony

Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place)

Such a lovely place

They livin' it up at the Bree Town Prancing Pony

What a strange surprise (what a strange surprise)

Disappear before your eyes.

 

Taking off the One Ring,

The ranger looked cold as ice

Strider said "We must all now quickly leave here, 

please take my advice"

And in the hobbit's chambers,

The Nine gathered for the Ring

They stab their beds with their steely knives,

But they just don't find a thing.

 

Next thing I remember, I was

Running for Mordor

I had to bring the One Ring back

To the place it was forged before

"Relax, " said my friend, Sam,

"We'll make it for sure, I believe

that there is still some good in this world,

And that good will never leave! "

Tommy James - Draggin the Line (for my dwarven friends)

 

 

Making a living the old, hard way.

Picking and shoveling day by day.

I dig ore from the veins and don't see sunshine.

I'm diggin' the mine (diggin' the mine).

 

My friend Sam can dig for hours.

We ain't got much, but what we've got's ours.

We dig ore from the veins and don't need sunshine.

Diggin' the mine (diggin the mine).

 

I feel fine.

I'm talking about a cache I'll find.

I'm gonna take my time.

I'm getting to good times.

Diggin' the mine (diggin the mine).

 

Loving a deep and earthy spirit.

Hug a  cave-claw when you get near it.

Digging the ore from a vein and don't need sunshine.

I'm diggin' the mine (diggin the mine).

Diggin' the mine (diggin' the mine).

Game Stew (Brain Stew by Green Day)

 

I'm having trouble trying to Raid

I'm asking friends but running out

As time ticks by

And still I try

I guess I'll solo it again.

 

On my own, here we go

 

My brain feels like it's gonna bleed

I tried to fellow with some nOObs

My mind is sore

My fingers numb

Screwed up and died so many times

 

On my own, here we go

 

I tried a skirmish on Teir 1

The game is laughing in my face

A spike of lag

Caused me to die

Passed the point of caring now

 

On my own, here we go

 

I tried the Halls of Night again

Died twice while cursing out Angmar

My laptop's slow

My fingers numb

Screwed up and died so many times

 

On my own, here we go

re: Lyrical Re-writes

Hobbiton Girl  (Cinnamon Girl - Neil Young)

 

I want to live with a hobbiton girl

I could be happy the rest of my life

With a hobbiton girl.

 

A drinker of pitchers, an eater of pie

You see us together, chasing the blue sky,

My hobbiton girl.

 

Ten dwarves with axes, a elf with a bow

The hunter relaxes and waits for the show

For his hobbiton girl.

 

A drinker of pitchers, an eater of pie

You see us together, chasing the blue sky,

My hobbiton girl.

 

So play me music now

I'm gonna frolic somehow

I need to learn to prance

You see my hobbit loves to dance

Yeah...yeah...yeah.

The Ramones, Blitzkrieg Bop:

 

Hey ho, let's go! hey ho, let's go!

Hey ho, let's go! hey ho, let's go!

 

They're eating all the time

They're drinking mead and fine wine

They're hobbits losing their minds

The Buckland bop

 

There's nothing on their feet

In the cold or in the heat

Just dancing to the back beat

The Buckland bop

 

Hey ho, let's go

Drink another keg now

What they want, I don't know

They're all revved up and ready to go

 

They're eating all the time
