*** World Hobbit Day *** Party Shire Medley (a medley of parodies) link to audio musical performance and lyrics Can't Post

My fellow Hobbit Day celebrators! Happy Bilbo's-and-Frodo's Birthday! I hope everybody's enjoying the various activities and goings-on. I certainly have been.

Unfortunately I begin on a down note. Quacking Troll and I were hoping and working toward having a duet video posted for today's celebration, but alas, that didn't work out under the circumstances. Sorry to be the bearer of this news. No one is more disappointed about it than I.

Q also had put in time and effort preparing for this, but sadly his contribution did not become available in time for today's event. I last heard from him yesterday. I'm hoping for his response to my latest email of a moment ago to know that he's still OK.

So this here is my (mostly*) solo audio we were hoping to use as part of the duet. It's really rough, folks, and it wasn't intended to be the final product, plus it's my debut in posting my own musical performance, so please don't set your expectations very high.

The parody lyrics were written by yours truly.
The medley was arranged by yours truly.

*The linked recording features performances and contributions by the following:

Yours truly on lead vocals, accompanying vocals, and acoustic guitar.

Mini-Ruxendil Thoorgette (20 months) (my number 2 of 2) on "background impromptu sound effects" (from her Potty Time With Elmo audio story book) during the "Long Expected Party" segment .

The plan was to have Quacking Troll share parts of the vocals and acoustic guitar. His voice would have taken the lead on segments 1, 2, part of 4, 5, and 7.

The recording, in its present unfinished form, was produced/edited by yours truly.
It was meant to be used as a working template for a duet that would have been done on video, which would have been made by Quacking Troll.

The medley consists of parodies of parts of the following songs (in order of appearance):

1. LMFAO, Party Rock Anthem,
2. The Kinks, Well Respected Man,
3. Carly Rae Jepsen, Call Me Maybe,
4. Far East Movement, Like a G6,
5. The Beatles, Octopus' Garden, and
6. The Rolling Stones, Mother's Little Helper

Below are the lyrics to follow along:

1. Shire Party Rock Anthem (LMFAO, Party Rock Anthem)

Bilbo Baggins in da house tonight,
Everybody just have a good time,
The One Ring make you lose your mind,
But tonight we just have a good time....

Frodo Baggins in the house tonight
Everybody just have a good time,
The One Ring make you lose your mind
But tonight let's see you

shake that

In the Shire, party rock
Lookin' for my door? Just come and knock (huh!)
You'll stop when you see the mark
Wizard put it there like he owns the block
What the track? I gots to know
Far Over them Misties Tall and Cold, Half
Baggins half Took all burglar
Steal the money, out the door
Yo I'm runnin through this
Contract like sprint track I got that
Bandobras flow, rock and
roll, no pillow, we party
Rock yeah, with the
crew here with Thorin. On our
way to see Smaug, let's hope he be snorin'

Bilbo Baggins in da house tonight,
Everybody just have a good time,
The One Ring make you lose your mind,
But tonight we just have a good time....

Frodo Baggins in the house tonight
Everybody just have a good time,
The One Ring make you lose your mind
But tonight let's see you....

Shake that
On the road Im shufflin.

2. Unexpected Party (The Kinks, Well Respected Man)

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

And its all so good, And its all so fine,
And the Dwarves keep coming
And the next you know, theres nine.

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

3. Make It, Maybe (Carly Rae Jepsen, Call Me Maybe)

I signed a deal on the line
A fourteenth share will be mine
By will of fortune divine
And now we're on our way

I trade my hole for a wish
My comfy hole I will miss
I wasn't looking for this
but now we're on our way

Three Trolls are holdin'
Us all, nowhere goin'
Until daylight showin'
Gandalf whered you go to baby?

Hey I just met you,
This is crazy
Your lucky number
Will make it, maybe

It's hard to look right
When you're shakin'
Your fourteenth number
Will make it, maybe

Hey I just met you,
This is crazy
Your lucky number
Will make it, maybe

And all the ugly Orcs
try to chase me
Your treasure hunter
Will make it, maybe

4. Three-Six (Far East Movement, Fly Like G6)

Poppin' rockets in the skies, by a wizard,
Hair be coverin' my toes brown and bristled
Smokin' Toby in my pipe,
Party Tree's big,
Now I'm standing so high, like three-six,
Like three-six, like three six,
N-N-N-Now I'm standing so high, like three-six,
Like three-six, like three six,
N-N-N-Now I'm standing so high, like three-six,

Gimme that birthday cake
Gimme that frosty ale
Kiddies love my tale
At my words they smile or quail
Get them rockets poppin
We get that dragon that drops
Now I give out two more mathoms cuz you know it don't stop

Hell yeah
drink it up drink-drink it up, When
Rosie dances closer, Samwise says he will get drunk
He be saying he'll get drunk
Sayin sayin he'll get drunk, When
Rosie dances closer, says he, says he will get drunk

Poppin' rockets in the skies, by a wizard,
Hair be coverin' my toes brown and bristled
Smokin' Toby in my pipe,
Party Tree's big,
Now I'm standing so high, like three-six,
Like three-six, like three six, N-N-N-Now Im standing so high like three-six
Like three-six, like three six,
N-N-N-Now I'm standing so high, like three-six,

5. The Party Tree (The Beatles, Octopus' Garden)

Id like to see the Party Tree
At the long-expected party near Bag End.
Hell let us in, at Hobbiton,
To his long-expected party near Bag End.

Otho my love, youll come and see
The long-expected party with me.
Id like to be under the Tree
At the long-expected party near Bag End.

6. Long Expected Party (The Rolling Stones, Mothers Little Helper)

What a drag it is on my soul.

My dear Hobbits here today for Frodos and my birthday.
Dont know half of you half well as I should like,
Less than half of you good sirs, like but half well as deserved.
Now Im running for the shelter of my precious little helper,
Its THE END, GOODBYE tonight, disappear right from your sight.
Gandalf please, wont you ease
Me out the door, can take no more.
What a drag it is on my soul.

7. Shire Party Rock Anthem reprise.

Get up, move on, road goes ever on and on
Get up, move on, road goes ever on and on
Get up, move on, road goes ever on and on
Road goes ever on and on
Road goes ever on and on
Get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up
Road goes ever on and on
On and on

Road goes ever Road goes ever Road goes ever Road goes ever.....

All da Hobbits in the house tonight
Everybody just have a good time
The One Ring make you lose your mind
But tonight we just have a good, good, good
time

Oh h-h-h (So good so fine),
Oh-h-h-h (I can make it, maybe!)
Oh h-h-h (Like three six)
Oh-h-h-h- (Won't you ease me)
Shake that!
On the Road I'm shuff- shufflin'.!
