Song Parodies/Name Both Tunes: Special Two-for-One "Party" Edition!!! Can't Post

These two parodies belong together, you'll see why. I wrote them both in the same evening in succession, just yesterday in fact. Try to name both parodied tunes and their respective artists. It should be easy--if you already know the songs. Solutions, with links to audio & lyrics, to be posted after enough guesses have been posted. Good luck, have fun, enjoy!

1.
AN UNEXPECTED PARTY

So itís just before his tea-time
When the bell rings at the door,
Itís a Dwarf who says ďÖat your service!Ē
Then the strained reply: ďÖ at yours!Ē
Gandalf knows heís too surprised for question-
ing, it never fails.

And itís all so good,
And itís all so fine,
And the Dwarves keep coming
And the next you know, thereís nine.
Itís an unexpected party for a
Hobbit who lives so conservatively.

And the nine become the thirteen
When that Gandalf shows at last.
And he serves the tea with seed-cake
While they talk about their past,
And he passes tarts as well as pie
To every reaching hand.

And itís all so good,
And itís all so fine,
And the Dwarves keep eating
And keep talking as they dine.
Itís an unexpected party for a
Hobbit who lives so conservatively.

And he loves his home Bag End,
And he loves his pipe the best,
But when Thorin and the rest
Play and sing about their quest,
Something Tookish from his motherís side
Awakes in him anon.

And itís all so good,
And itís all so fine,
And while Thorinís making his speech,
Hears his host drop flat and whine.
Itís an unexpected party for a
Hobbit who lives so conservatively.

So they talk about his share,
And he pores over the Contract,
Asks about the secret door,
Heís an avid map fan, in fact.
But the wizard knows the best about
The overarching stakes.

And itís all so good,
And itís all so fine,
As the Dwarves fill his spare-rooms,
Their song echoes in his mind.
Itís an unexpected party for a
burglar, expert treasure hunter, indeed.

A LONG-EXPECTED PARTY

What a drag I feel in my soul.

Things are different today.
Itís my birthday party day,
And I need some way to leave here with a bang!
Haven't aged a day, though old,
Thanks to this here Ring of gold.
Iíve been running for the shelter of my precious little helper.
Now I need a better way, get me gone from here, away.

Things are different today,
All the Hobbit children say,
When that wagon comes a-rolling down the drag.
Here come Boffins, Tooks and Chubbs,
Brandybucks, Proudfoots and Grubbs,
But Iím running for the shelter, itís Lobelia, here help her-
Self to cake and ale today, and Bag End if had her way.

Gandalf please, wonít you ease
Me out the door, can take no more.
What a drag I feel in my soul.

My dear Hobbits here today.
Itís Frodoís and my birthday.
Donít know half of you half well as I should like,
Less than half of you good sirs, like but half well as deserved.
Now Iím running for the shelter of my precious little helper,
Itís THE END, GOODBYE tonight, disappear right from your sight.

Gandalf please, wonít you ease
Me out the door, can take no more.
What a drag I feel in my soul.

Lifeís just much too hard today,
Think I need a holiday
Where the Road Goes Ever Ever On and On.
Well-preserved, Iím stretched the most, butter spread thin over toast.
No more running for the shelter of that precious little helper,
It just helped me on my way. Whither now? I cannot say.

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