SARUMAN (Parody of Billy Joel "Piano Man") Can't Post

After I was done writing the following parody attempt of Billy Joel’s “Piano Man” about Saruman, I checked for other, prior Piano Man-Saruman parodies and found . . . several. To my relief, they were quite different from my version below. I will not link to them but invite everyone to google those other parodies and judge mine accordingly.

SARUMAN (to the tune of Billy Joel, “Piano Man”) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dBC6IVP-C84

The Fourteen Hundreds (1400s), Shire Reckoning
The Istari chief I was then.
Just an old man—only looks to be—
Making half-breeds of Uruks and Men.

I said: Lurtz, do you know how Orcs came to be?
I’ll tell you for sure how it goes:
They were Elves once, they say, ‘til the Dark had its way,
Perfected in you, and it shows.

La la la de de da
La la de de da da da

Bring me the Halfling, to Saruman!
Alive and unspoilt, tonight,
As there’s something of value he has for me,
The others, just kill ‘em, all right?

Now Gandalf the Grey was a friend of mine
He sought advice trustingly
A dotard slowpoke hooked on Halfling leaf-smoke,
Now there’s someplace that he’d rather be.
He said: “Friend, your betrayal is killing me,”
As the trust ran away from his face.
“Well I‘m sure that you’re being a rude Istar,
And I’ll soon fly out of this place!”

Oh La la la de de da
La la de de da da da

Now Lurtz was the Uruk-Hai nemesis
He liked to lick blood from a knife
He let loose at the target, three times did he mark it
But promptly some schmuck took his life.

After Wormtongue’s done practicing politics,
Let the Deeping Wall fall like the rain!
Yes, they hold in the Hornburg in hopelessness,
‘Cuz it’s better than hoping in vain.

NO DAWN FOR MAN! (except Saru-Man!)
LEAVE NONE ALIVE, TONIGHT!
FOR A NEW POWER IS RISING IN ISENGARD!
ITS VICTORY, AT HAND AND IN SIGHT!

‘Twas a pretty good crowd here in Isengard
And the tree-herders gave me a smile
‘Cuz they knew it was me they were comin’ to see
To throw rocks at my tower for a while.

Rang my voice, like those barkers at carnivals,
As I greeted old friends with a sneer.
With a word Gandalf spoke, well, my wizard staff broke,
And . . . say, man, you seen my palantír???

Oh la la la de de da
La la de de da da da

Off to the Shire go I, Saruman!
Sharkey’s last chance, tonight!
Well, what have we here, Halflings in liveries . . . ?
AGGH! You got me, Gríma, all right?!

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