THE ONE RING, a parody of The Beach Boys' California Girls Can't Post

It's a miserable rainy evening here. So i figure, time for some California dreamin'--Tolkien style.

BTW I've done a song parody based around the Rings poem before, http://newboards.theonering.net/...?post=384117;#384117
but not quite like this.

It may help to have the music playing while reading this. A link to youtube audio clip with lyrics is supplied below. For my parodies generally, I recommend it.

OK here goes:


THE ONE RING

(to the tune of The Beach Boys, California Girls)


Well Three Rings for the Elv-
en Kings who dwell under the sky,

And the Seven for the Dwarven-lords
Where in their halls of stone they hide,

The Nine for Mortal Men, they’re really
doomed to die alone,

And the One for Me, the Dark Lord who sits
Here on my dark and dreadful throne!

The One to Rule Them All and to Find Them
The One to Bring Them All and to Bind Them
The One to Bring Them All where the Shadows Lie!

An Elven buddy of mine, Cele-
brimbor “Silver-Hands”,
He called me Lord of Gifts, ol’ Annatar
He thought I spoke for Valar lands.

I showed him how to take some gold and
Forge some special rings,
‘Cuz I couldn’t wait to show my new mate
Something else, just one more thing…

Ash nazg durbatulúk, gimbatul,
Ash nazg thrakatulûk, krimpatul
Ash nazg thrakatulûk
where Shadows Lie!

The One to Rule Them All and to Find Them
(Forge, forge, forge, yeah you got it)
The One to Bring Them All and to Bind Them
(Forge, forge, forge, yeah you got it)
The One to Rule Them All and to Find Them
(Forge, forge, forge, yeah you got it)
The One to Bring Them All and to Bind Them
(Forge, forge, forge, yeah you got it)

(FADE OUT)

In a good way? I'm not sure.

All that is gold does not glitter,

Good grief, Rux, this is hilarious! Laugh

And orcs in the band... [In reply to] Can't Post

complete with choreographed swaying...

Oh, the image is frighteningly clear!

And, I concur, brilliant, Ruxendil!

Oh, you kid! [In reply to] Can't Post

This California girl Beach Boys fan will never be able to croon this again with a straight face (as if I ever could).

How about a karaoke session for the whole room with some of your lyrics on a BIG screen? What say you all?

Classic! [In reply to] Can't Post

This is brilliant Ruxendil. Thanks for cheering me up when I needed it today... Smile
You know, someday when inspiration takes me, I'm going to have to have a go at this parody thing.

Thanks, all! :-) [In reply to] Can't Post

Thanks, everybody above. I'm glad to have you all to share it with, disturbing as it may be! ;-)

I was particularly gratified to find the opportunity to incorporate Black Speech into the lyrics. Black Speech...set to beach party / surfer music ---> had to be done!

I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.
