AT THE END OF AN AGE (At the End of the Day, Les Miserables) [In reply to] Can't Post

OK I've worked on it and here's what I have so far.

AT THE END OF AN AGE (At the End of the Day, from Les Miserables, the Complete Symphonic recording)

[HIGH ELVES ARE LOOKING WEST TO THE GREY HAVENS ANTICIPATING THEIR FINAL DEPARTURE WESTWARD. ARAGORN IS LEAVING MIRKWOOD AFTER HAVING DELIVERED GOLLUM TO THE MIRKWOOD ELVES AT GANDALF’S REQUEST. FRODO AND SAM PACK IN HASTE TO LEAVE THE SHIRE TO EVADE WITCHKING AND THE BLACK RIDERS WHO ARE NEARING, HUNTING THE RING AND ITS BEARER. MERRY AND PIPPIN SUSPECT FRODO’S PLAN AND INTEND TO CONFRONT HIM. RADAGAST HAS EMBARKED TO WARN GANDALF OF THE NAZGUL WHO HAVE CROSSED INTO ERIADOR, WHILE SARUMAN AWAITS GANDALF’S VISIT. BOROMIR, GIMLI, AND LEGOLAS SEPARATELY HEAD TOWARD RIVENDELL TO ATTEND THE COUNCIL OF ELROND. GOLLUM SLINKS OUT INTO THE NIGHT DETERMINED TO REPOSSESS HIS PRECIOUS.]

HIGH ELVES

At the end of an Age it’s a world gotten older
And that’s all we can say here of fair Middle Earth
It’s a struggle, it’s a war
There is good here worth fighting for gaining
But if victory will be ours, what is there more?
Still, our time here is waning.

ARAGORN

At the end of the day you’re another day colder
And the cloak on your back doesn’t keep out the chill
But that “creature,” nabbed at last
Can’t afford to let him go flying
For the Shadow is coming on fast, ready to kill
One day nearer to dying!

HIGH ELVES

To the West of the world there’s better world waiting
Where the sun in the morning comes swiftly to rise
Past a curtain of silver glass
A fair country of green where we’re beckoned.

Here a hunger Sauron has
There’s a reckoning yet to be reckoned
And the battles are yet to be waged
At the end of an Age.

SAM

At the end of the day we’ll need something for cookin’
So I’ll pack up some pans and some salt and some bread….

FRODO

There are Ringwraiths near our home
And the time is at hand that we’ve fled
And we’re lucky to be here at all

SAM

And we’re not dead

BOTH

And we’re counting our blessings!

RADAGAST (TO GANDALF)

Have you heard how the Nazgul are nearing this way?
With their terrible breath and fell blades in their hands?
It’s because someone with knowledge has given away
That the Ring’s in the Shire, this he now understands!
Now our boss, he always knows
What to do when we’re feeling the heat

GANDALF

Tell your bird friends look out
To Orthanc send word,
I’ll be there in a beat.

BOROMIR

At the end of the day it’s a dream that I ponder
Now a sword that was broken is something I seek

GIMLI

Said a horseman to our King
He was looking for some little “Hobbit”

LEGOLAS (Overlapping)

It was looking for some little “Hobbit”

GIMLI

He was looking for some ring….

LEGOLAS (Overlapping)

….Up a tree it...

LEGOLAS (solo)

… stayed, we dared not chop it.
That Gollum, it got away
At the end of the day!

(MERRY AND PIPPIN confront FRODO AND SAM)

MERRY

What have we here, little innocent cousin?

PIPPIN

Come on ol’ chap, let’s have all the news!
If you ask me, you seem wanting for running….

MERRY

To Buckleb’rry Ferry!

JOINED BY PIPPIN

There’s no time to lose!

FRODO

You should both leave us be
It is none of your business
With Black Riders near home
On the Westfarthing side
There’s not anyone there
Who’d withstand their fell might
Those with something to fear
Would do best now to hide.

[BLACK RIDER APPEARS, SHRIEKS, THEY FLEE IN PANIC.]

SARUMAN (TO GANDALF)

The Shire, the Ring there this whole time?
The Halfling’s weed, it’s slowed your mind?
The hour is late, the Nine upon us!
They’ve crossed the Isen, robed in Black
They’ll find the object of pursuit
None can stem their attack.
I bid you join, with me, their Lord
And use what wisdom as you can---

GANDALF

When did you change from wise to mad?

(They duel. Gandalf is captured. Meranwhile, the Black Riders’ pursuit has been foiled temporarily by the Hobbits’ use of Buckleberry Ferry)

WITCHKING

At the end of the day it’s a “Shire” and a “Baggins”
There’s a “thing” that’s been hidden in some little town

JOINED BY OTHER NAZGUL

There’s a name we’ve learned to say
You can guess how we take information

WITCHKING

You can bet Gollum’s earning its keep screaming aloud
As the boss would like it.

GOLLUM

Yes they hurtsed us, tortured us
All for the preciousss
Just to learn about “Bagginses” hailed from “the Shires”
Then they lets us go creepsing about in the night
To take back what is ours
What they knows we desires

(THE FOUR HOBBITS HAVE SUCCESSFULLY FLED THE BLACK RIDERS VIA BUCKLEBERRY FERRY)

MERRY (TO FRODO AND SAM)

At the end of the day you’ve been nothing but trouble

PIPPIN

And there’s trouble for all when there’s trouble for one

FRODO

I’ve been burdened, let it be said,
With a secret that cannot be uttered

SAM

He needs help getting away
Or we’re all gonna end in the gutter

MERRY & PIPPIN

So it’s us together to stay

JOINED BY FRODO AND SAM

At the end of the day!

BREE GATEKEEPER

Who comes a-knockin’ at the gate?
I’d like to know who calls this late?
Four Hobbits, here? What is your business?

FRODO

Good sir, our business is our own
We’re heading for the Prancing Pon’

GATEKEEPER

Meant no offence, sir, have no doubt
There’s talk of strange folk hereabout
It’s just the next sign to the right.

FRODO

Then we do thank you sir, good night.

SAM

It’s the farthest from home
Now that I’ve ever been.

MERRY & PIPPIN

And we think that you’ll say that again and again.

FRODO

Must meet Gandalf today!

SAM, MERRY & PIPPIN (overlapping)

Meet the wizard today!

FRODO (spoken)

Right, dear friends. On our way.
