Songs of the Middle-Earth

Post#1 » Thu May 26, 2005 7:45 am

Good one, LA, something that needs a bit of thought. Can I remind people that they must put who wrote/sang the original for copyright reasons.

Here's one which only needed a few very subtle changes....

I want to break free
I want to break free
I want to break free from your lies
You're so self satisfied I don't need you
I've got to break free
Eru knows, Eru knows I want to break free

I've fallen in love
I've fallen in love for the first time
And this time I know it's for real
I've fallen in love, yeah
Eru knows, Eru knows I've fallen in love

It's strange but it's true
Hey, I can't get over the way you love me like you do
But I have to be sure
When I walk out that door
Oh how I want to be free, Eowyn,
Oh how I want to be free
Oh how I want to break free

But life still goes on
You can't get used to living without, living without
Living without me by your side
You don't want to live alone, hey
Eru knows, got to make it on your own
So Eowyn can't you see
I've got to break free

I've got to break free
I want to break free, yeah
I want, I want, I want, I want to break free
Ooh yeah
I want to break - yeah eah

Written by John Deacon - performed by Freddie Mercury and Queen but in Middle-Earth it was performed by Lord (later King) Aragorn.

[u]We Will Rock you![/u]
(Originally by Queen but this one was sung by the Orc Army outside the walls of Minas Tirith during the seige)

Gondor is a city with a big wall
Fightin’ in the field gonna be a big war to-day
Throwin' rocks on yo’ walls
Your big city falls
Killin' your men all over the place

We will we will rock you
We will we will rock you

Buddy we’re all young orcs hard orcs
Shoutin’ in the street gonna take Middle Earth some day
We got blood on our swords
We're no cowards
Wavin’ our banner all over the place

We will we will rock you
We will we will rock you

Sauron is our Dark Lord Power Lord
Lookin' with his Eye gonna make your walls shake to-day

Throwin' rocks on your walls
You big city falls
We're gonna kill all the men in your place

We will we will rock you
We will we will rock you

(All puns intended!)
I am nobody.....and nobody is perfect.......therefore I am perfect.

Songs of the Middle-Earth

Its quite simple really. Take an already written and sung song, snatch its lyrics and convert it into something which can be related to Middle-Earth and its dwellers (dead or alive). And only one condition is there: It should be funny!

Here's my effort:

[u]Everything I do (I do it for you)[/u]
(Originally by Bryan Adams, now by the Dark Lord Sauron)

(To: The One Ring)
Look into my Eye
You will see
What you mean to me
Searched the Shire
I'm Searching Gondor
When I find you
Then I'll search no more

(To: Nazgul)
Don't tell me it's not worth tryin' for
You can't tell me it's not worth dyin' for

(To: The One Ring)
You know it's true
Everything I do - I do it for you

(To: Frodo)
Look into your heart
You will find
There's nowhere left to hide
Give me what I need
Give my Ring
I would take it back
I would sacrifice

(To: Nazgul)
Don't tell me it's not worth fightin' for
I can't help it - there's nothin' I want more

(To: The One Ring)
You know it's true
Everything I do - I do it for you

There's no ring
Like your beauty
And no other
Could give more power
There's no Middle Earth
When you're there
All the time
All the way

(To: The Nazgul)
Oh - you can't tell me it's not worth tryin' for
I can't help it - there's nothin' I want more

(To: The One Ring)
Yeah, I would fight for you
I'd kill for you
Go to war for you
Yeah I'd die for you

You know it's true
Everything I do
Ohhh, I do it for you
I am nobody.....and nobody is perfect.......therefore I am perfect.

[u]Minas Morgul[/u]
(Originally as Hotel California by The Eagles, now by a visitor to Minas Morgul)

On a dark Mordor highway, foul wind in my hair
Foul smell of flesh, rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
I had to stop for the night
There he stood in the doorway;
I heard the mission bell
And I was thinking to myself,
’this could not be heaven so this really is hell’
Then he lit up a torch and he showed me the way
There were voices down the corridor,
I thought I heard them say...

Welcome to the Minas Morgul
Such a beastly place
Such a beastly face
Plenty of doom at the Minas Morgul
Any time of year, you can find it here

His mind is a little twisted, He's got the orcs and troll
He got a lot of baddy, baddy boys, that He calls Nazgul
How they roam in the courtyard, shreiking their cry.
Some kill for pleasure, some kill to destroy

So I called up the Witch King,
’please bring me my wine’
He said, ’we haven’t had that spirit here since nineteen sixty nine’
And still those voices are calling from far away,
Wake you up in the middle of the night
Just to hear them say...

Welcome to the Minas Morgul
Such a beastly place
Such a beastly face
They livin’ it up at the Minas Morgul
What a nice kill, to your heart's fill.

Mirrors on the ceiling,
The pink flesh on ice
And he said ’you are all just prisoners here, of your own device’
And in the master’s chambers,
They gathered for the dinner
The stab it with their steely knives,
After they had killed the prisoner.

Last thing I remember, I was
Running for the door
I had to find the passage back
To the place I was before
’relax,’ said the Witch King,
We are programmed to receive.
You can checkin any time you like,
But you can never leave!
I am nobody.....and nobody is perfect.......therefore I am perfect.

[u]Knockin' on Gondor's Doors[/u]
(Originally as Knockin' on Heaven's Doors by Guns N' Roses but now by the orcs who were handling the Grond during the Seige of Minas Tirith)

Sauron gave this Grond to me
The hammer of Vala Melkor
It's getting dark and I am happy
Feels like I'm knockin' on Gondor's door

Knock-knock-knockin' on Gondor's door
Knock-knock-knockin' on Gondor's door
Knock-knock-knockin' on Gondor's door
Knock-knock-knockin' on Gondor's door

The doors are falling to the ground
There won't be a Minas Tirith anymore
The great Witch King is comin' down
Feels like I'm knockin' on Gondor's door

Knock-knock-knockin' on Gondor's door
Knock-knock-knockin' on Gondor's door
Knock-knock-knockin' on Gondor's door
Knock-knock-knockin' on Gondor's door
I am nobody.....and nobody is perfect.......therefore I am perfect.

[u]White City[/u]
(Originally as Paradise City by the Guns N' Roses, this song is the most popular soldier's tune in Minas Tirith.)

[u]Chorus:[/u]
Take me down to the White City
Where the walls are white
And the girls are pretty
Take me home (Oh, won't you please take me home)

Just a soldier livin' under the street
I'm a hard warrior that's tough to beat
I'm your last defense
So buy me somethin' to eat
I'll pay you with a dime
Fightin' to the end of time.

Orcs to Trolls
Or so they say
You gotta
Keep fightin' for the glory and fame
You know it's, it's all a game
When it's just a game
You treat it like a great war
We are fightin' for Gondor

Chorus x2

Standing in the tower of the city's battlements
Last I was afraid, I can't quite remember
The captain general says it's time to stay alert
I'd have another pipeweed
But I can't see
Tell me that you're gonna believe

Chorus x2

So far away x4

Though Gondor's been torn apart
It still has its glory
With a light heart
We watch towards Mordor
And they can never take Gondor
I must be losing my mind
"Are you blind?!"
I've seen it all a mllion times

CHORUS x4

I want to go
I want to know
Oh, won't you please take me home

I want to see
Oh, look at me
Oh, won't you please take me home

Take me down to the White City
Where the walls are white
And the girls are pretty
Take me home (Oh, won't you please take me home)

Take me down to the White City
Where the walls are white
And the girls are pretty
Oh, won't you please take me home

Take me down
Oh yeah
Beat me down
Oh, won't you please take me home

I want to see
Oh, look at me
Oh, won't you please take me home

I want to see
Boy, I'm gonna be mean
Oh, oh take me home

Take me down to the White City
Where the walls are white
And the girls are pretty
Oh, won't you please take me home

I want to go
I want to know
Oh, won't you please take me hooooooome
Baby
I am nobody.....and nobody is perfect.......therefore I am perfect.

[u]White City II[/u]
(Sung to the tune of Yellow Submarine by The Beatles, it is a very popular song among those who reside in Minas Tirith.)

In the land where I was born
Is a City which is so strong
And I spent my whole life
Behind the walls of White City

And we looked up to the West
Till we found the White Tree
And we lived beneath the Sun
In the White City

We all live in the White City,
White City, White City,
We all live in the White City,
White City, White City

As we live a life of ease
Everyone of us has all we need
Sky of blue and fields of green
In the White City.

We all live in the White City,
White City, White City,
We all live in the White City,
White City, White City

We all live in the White City,
White City, White City,
We all live in the White City,
White City, White City
I am nobody.....and nobody is perfect.......therefore I am perfect.

[u]Estel is Good.[/u]
(Sung to the tune of Johnny B. Goode by Chuck Berry, its a very popular song in the halls of Rivendell and is often sung by the merry Elves.)

Deep down Rivendell close to Misty Mountains,
Way back up in the valley among the green plains
There stood a great hall made of wood and stone,
Where lived a Dunadan named of Lord Aragorn
Who never ever learned to sing or dance so well,
But he could wield the sword like ringing a bell.

Go Go
Go Estel Go
Go Go
Estel is Good

He used to carry Narsil among his goods
And walk beneath the trees of the Lorien woods.
Oh, we Elves used to see him sitting in the shade,
Drinking the pipeweed that the hobbits made.
The People passing by, they would stop and say
Oh my that man is ever so gay

Go Go
Go Estel Go
Go Go
Estel is Good

His mother told him someday you will be a man,
And you would be the leader of a big old land.
Many people coming from miles around
To stay in your halls when the sun go down
Maybe someday your name will be in light
Saying Aragorn was a mighty knight

Go Go
Go Estel Go
Go Go
Estel is Good
I am nobody.....and nobody is perfect.......therefore I am perfect.
