MORIA, a parody-tribute (to the tune of Hotel California by the Eagles) Can't Post

This parody-tribute was inspired by a post by Arandiel entitled "Hotel Moria" under the Saruman-with-guitar caption contest. Arandiel, this is for you.

MORIA, performed by the Eagles

(featuring Thorondor Henley on drums/vocals, Gwaihir Frey on guitar, Landroval "Dro" Walsh on guitar, Tim "Moth" Meneldor-Schmidt on bass)

To the tune of Hotel California by the Eagles

In a dark Dwarven mine-way
Without wind in our hair
Foul smell of detritus
Rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance
The paths split left, down, and right
Our heads grew heavy and our sight grew dim
We had to stop for the night.

[DRUMS:] Doom! Doom!

The Watcher had blocked the doorway
Our wizard took the helm
And we were thinking to ourselves
“This could be Ûdun, not the Blessed Realm”
Then he lit up a crystal
And he showed us the way
Orcs were drumming down the corridor
We thought we heard them say:

Welcome to the Orc-infested Moria!
Such a lovely place
For your burial space.
Plenty of mithril to mine down here in Moria
Any time of year,
You can perish here.

The tunnels tortuously twisted,
They’ve got the Orc-laden bends,
We met a lot of pretty, pretty boys
If pretty means goblin rear-ends,
Drop a stone down a deep well,
Foo-oo-oo-ool of a Took!
I think they’ve got a cave troll,
Quick, let’s read Ori’s book….

Then came forth the chieftain,
Speared me through my right side.
I thought, if it hadn’t worn my mail-shirt here,
I would have surely died.
And still that Dimrill-gate waiting so far away
See the Orcs all scattering in fright
Of a Shadow and Flame.

Welcome to the Balrog-haunted Moria!
Such a lovely place,
Now it’s time to race!
Plenty of bottomless pits down here in Moria.
What a curious thing,
Does it have real wings?

With his staff and Glamdring
Standing over the crevasse,
He said, “I am a servant of the secret fire,
But forth the demon clambered,
And as the bridge broke anon,
Gandalf caught in that whip of flame,
“Fly you fools!” he cried, and was gone.

Last thing I remember, we were
Running for the door
We had to find the passage there
To the place we headed for.
“Relax,” said the Lady.
A sad lament did we hear.
“What’s it mean?” I heard Merry ask.
Legolas: “Nay, the grief is too near.”

"That doesn't make much sense to me. But then again, you are quite small. Perhaps you're right."
