Song parody/tribute THE COUNCIL OF ELROND [I am the Walrus] Can't Post

Source song audio with lyrics: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zI-tkIXqHBw

For just the source lyrics: http://www.songmeanings.net/songs/view/805/

For the FOTR script: http://cjbannister.users.btopenworld.com/fotrscript.htm The “The Council of Elrond” scene can be found a bit more than halfway down.

The series of couplets at the end of the parody are meant to replace the unintelligibly croaked/barked, chanting vocals at the end of the source song as it fades out.

Now, without further ado….

Song parody/tribute: THE COUNCIL OF ELROND [The Beatles, I am the Walrus]

Elves are here, as
Men are here, as
Dwarves are here, and
we are all together.

See who have come?
More friends who have come
hail from the Shire.
Mae govannen!

Friends and distant strangers
summoned here to heed my call,
Middle-Earth awaits its
awful bloody doomsday, Sau-
-ron’s been a naughty boy,
We’ve let his reach grow long.

Let’s see the Ring then.(OO-Oo-ooh!)
Bring forth the Ring then. (OO-Oo-ooh!)
Problem before us:
What should we do?

From the city, great white city,
Boromir is here, so hear me now!
See how it fits, this Ring, it is a gift!
Our foes will run!
Been fighting
the fi-i-i-i-ight. (FI-I-i-i-ight!)
Should try it!
They’ll fly- (TRY-y-y-y-y . . .)
y-y-y-y!! (. . . -y-y-y-y!)

This you cannot master.
There’s not one of us who can.
What’s a lowly Ranger
know about the matter?
Sir, he’s not a Ranger only,
He’s your future king!

We have no king there. (OO-Oo-ooh!)
We need no king there! (OO-Oo-ooh!)
Strong as our force is,
Who’d look to you?

Wishing he could tend his garden
When the talking’s done.
If he goes back home along with Sam,
He’s free from all the aches and pains.
Who’ll take the Ring then? [spoken:](What, you sir?)
Who’ll take the Ring then? [spoken:](No Elf may take!)
Who’ll bear it for us?
What would you choose?
What d’you choose to do?


Axe is shattered, totaled, broken!
That’s not how the Ring can be destroyed.
(Weh-heh-hell, hee-hee-here’s ha-ha-how)
Cast to the flame from whence that it came,
That’s how the Eye
Can die.

One of you must do this.
Simply walking into Mordor?!
Evil there is sleepless, eyeball ever watchful,
Barren, ashen wasteland,
Air to breathe, a poison fume.

Who’d take the Ring there? (WHO-oo-oo?)

I’ll take the Ring there! (OO-Oo-ooh!)

He’ll bear it for us?

You, you and you, what (CHOo-oo-oose!)
d’you choose to do?


You, you and you,
and you,
What d’you choose to do?

What d’you choose?

Choose it! Choose it! Choose it!


Choose it! Choose it!
Choose it choose it!


[spoken/rapped, gradual fade out:]
Now come what may,
Though I do not know the way. (D’you choose?)
I'll help, of course,
with the burden while its yours.
You have my sword,
My life, upon my word.
And my bow too,
each arrow flies for you.
And my (new) axe,
just point and there it whacks.
Have faith little one,
let Gondor see it done.
It's me, your Sam,
I follow as I am!
Oi, we’ll come too,
That’s what we’re gonna do!
Need brains to bring
for this Mission! Quest! Thing!
So where to now?
I guess that rules you out,
Pip!
. . . for this trip,
You’ll be the Fellowship!
Begun this book,
Young Frodo, take a look.
I’ll be your wife
So I choose a mortal life!
[repeat until fade out]

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