Okay, competition time. As it's Xmas, we're going to do Tolkien themed 12 days of Christmas songs. I tried to do one last year using just significant numbers (eg. 9 Ringwraiths, 3 Silmarils, and 1 ring to rule them all) but I ran out.
If anyone can come up with a full set of 12 significant numbers in Tolkien's work for a good old singalong, they will get the coveted Cuddly Badger award. These Badgers will also be handed out for funny songs, and of course, just plain good songs.(badgers are not tangible in the real world, this is not a good competition, you merely win the respect of your peers in reality)
MAKE SURE THEY SCAN!!! (as in they go with the original tune, and are singable)
And if you are still in school, and have a carol concert coming up, hassle your teachers to let you sing this at your concerts.

So borrow what you like and see if you can come up with a better or as good as one. As I remember I made mine singable, while missing the point about using Tolkien's more relevant numbers. Stonehelm did this quite well.
