Song parody/tribute: THE GARDENER [Simon and Garfunkel, the Boxer] Can't Post

It's been a while since I posted a song parody/tribute. Here is one I came up with this evening.

THE GARDENER, by Simonwise and Gafferuncle

To the tune of The Boxer, by Simon and Garfunkel

Source song, audio with lyrics: http://www.youtube.com/...&feature=related

Or just the lyrics: http://www.songmeanings.net/songs/view/7344/

I’ve been just a good boy,
Swear I heard no story told,
Only trimming these here hedges,
Heard no more than hums and mumbles
That’s a promise, yes!
No lies or jests!
Though I did hear something ‘bout a Ring,
A Dark Lord and the rest….

Then we left our homes
And my family
I was no more than a boy
In a world of swarthy strangers
In the bustle of the Prancing Pony
Hiding scared,
Laying low,
Seeking out the higher quarters
Where that “longshanks” said to go,
Cringing from the faces
Only death would know.

CHORUS
Lie-la-lie….

Trudging through the dead men’s Marshes
We came looking for the way
But we got no farther,
Without Gollum on his leash,
We wouldn’t have a clue.
I do declare
There were times I thought with longing
Her with ribbons in her hair.

CHORUS

Then we clambered up a winding road
I wished that we were gone
Going home
Where the Slinker and the Stinker
Weren’t a peeve to me
Leading me
Far from home.

In the clearing stood the gardener
And the Spider with him played
Still, he dodged every reprisal
When all seemed lost while lying down
he stabbed up ‘til it cried out
In its anguish and its pain.
Is it leaving? It is leaving . . .
But the journey still remains . . . .

CHORUS

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