Sting, a parody inspired by the recent movie teaser photo Can't Post

STING

A parody of "Spiderwebs" by No Doubt*

most recently inspired by this photo:

http://latimesherocomplex.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/thehobbit8.jpg

I think we’ve gone off track
We can’t find our way back,
We saw feasting in the clear,
Now we’re alone, in dark and fear.

I’m nearly stuck in the
Web you’re spinning
You want me for your prey….

Old Tomnoddy! Attercop!
I’m cuttin’ through your spiderwebs
You string my legs up, now I sting you back
Unlikely story but
String my legs up and I sting you back.

You’re intruding on what’s mine
Got my friends hung up in lines
I’ll find the courage inside me
To set my Dwarf companions free

Cunning in action, arachno-cidal extraction
I’m planning our escape

Lazy Lob and Crazy Cob!
I’m cuttin’ through your spiderwebs
You sting my friends and now I sting you back
Unlikely story but
Sting my friends and then I sting you back.

You spin, won’t you stop,
You scream, down you drop,
No matter, you fall!
You had to string my Dwarves up.

Now I’ve gone in deep (Elven blade goes deep)
I creep forth with my Ring (with the Ring I creep)
I clean my sword with care (black stains on grass there)
I shall name you, call you Sting (Sting I name you)

Old Tomnoddy! Attercop!
I’m cuttin’ through your spiderwebs
You sting my friends and now I sting you back
Unlikely story but
Sting my friends and then I sting you back.

You spin, won’t you stop,
You scream, down you drop,
No matter matter matter matter, you fall!
You had to string my Dwarves up.

Ooh spiderwebs
Sting my friends and then I sting you back
I’m cuttin’ through your spiderwebs
Sting my friends and then I sting you back
Oh won’t you stop,
Ol’ Attercop!
No matter matter matter, you fall!
You had to string my Dwarves up.
You spin, won’t you stop,
You scream, down you drop,
No matter, you fall.
No matter, you fall.

You’re weaving, winding spiderwebs
Sting my friends and then I sting you back
Can’t get me inside your webs
Sting my friends and then I sting you back

(I’m cuttin’ through your spiderwebs) Oh won’t you stop,
(Sting my friends and then I sting you back) You scream, down you drop
(I’m cuttin’ through your spiderwebs) You had to string my Dwarves up
(Sting my friends and then I sting you back) Ol’ Attercop!
(I’m cuttin’ through your spiderwebs) No matter matter matter, you fall
(Sting my friends and then I sting you back) When you string my Dwarves up.
I’m cuttin’ through your spiderwebs
Sting my friends and then I sting you back.

wow Ruxendil!, you're parodies continue to entertain me!! and amaze me! :) [In reply to] Can't Post

you have a sizeable collection!!!

Laugh

awesome tying in the song thematically BTW!

"I would draw some of the great tales in fullness, and leave many only placed in the scheme, and sketched. The cycles should be linked to a majestic whole, and yet leave scope for other minds and hands, wielding paint and music and drama"

Amazing! [In reply to] Can't Post

How do you find these songs that so perfectly work in the situations? I've not heard the original to this before, it's uncanny how your parody just sort of "slides into place"!

Well done, once more! Cool

thanks dernwyn :-) [In reply to] Can't Post

 
I'm not sure, but perhaps that movie-teaser photo inspired me in the back of my mind to search for the right song, and there it was. The way that the Old Tomnoddy, Attercop / Lazy Lob and Crazy Cob just happened to fit the rhythm/meter was a lucky coincidence.

Generally, reflecting on the list of parodies I've posted, I'm beginning to think many songs "slide into place" for re-telling, or paying tribute to, Tolkien's works b/c they are so rich and deep, and cover many universally applicable themes. There are so many quotable lines, including from the songs/poems within the stories.

Thanks again.
