The Goblin King's Song (My extended version) Can't Post

I found the Goblin King's song highly amusing in the film, and wanted to hear more of it (which may have happened if Orcrist hadn't been identified), so I've compiled two extra verses made up by me to finish the song:
Warning: Like the film song, it is pretty graphic.

Bones will be shattered
Necks will be wrung
You'll be beaten and battered
From racks you'll be hung
You will die down here and never be found
Down in the deep of Goblin-Town

Blood will be splattered
Veins will be ripped
In structures of iron
Your bones will be gripped
But your screams down here will never be heard
Down in the deep where goblins lurk

Teeth will be smattered
Legs will be hacked
You will whimper and grumble
Your skin will be cracked
You will lose your mind then soon to be mad
Down where the goblins quaff, my lad!

Just for laughs but tell me what you think.

"These are Gundabad Wargs! They will outrun you!"

"THESE are Rhosgobel Rabbits! I'd like to see them try...."

This needs to be in the EE :-) [In reply to] Can't Post

I particularly enjoyed that you managed to work in "my lad', if not the "ho ho". Well done!

Great job on this! [In reply to] Can't Post

I loved the Goblin King's song in the movie and his silly dance. I wish there had been more of it and now you've made my wish come true! Well, partially. Laugh

But... but now it's stuck in my head! HALP! Crazy

Excellent [In reply to] Can't Post

You should probably be employed to write the lyrics to these songs. I can totally hear the goblin king singing those words haha

I do hope this is extended in the EE though it would be epic!!

Thank you Greypilgrim! [In reply to] Can't Post

That has to be one of the kindest things anyone has ever said to me (At least as far as Tolkien/Middle-Earth is concerned anyway). Wink

"These are Gundabad Wargs! They will outrun you!"

"THESE are Rhosgobel Rabbits! I'd like to see them try...."

Trying to hold the laughter in can be dangerous to your health! Not to mention painful.

Thank you [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm glad you and your family get as much pleasure from the Goblin King's antics as I do. The song and moments you listed are brilliant, along with these:

"Hail Thorin, son of Thrain, son of Thror, King Under the Mountain. Oh, but I'm forgetting, you don't have a mountain, and you're not a king, which makes you...nobody, really"

"If they will not talk, we will make them squawk!"

"I know somebody who would pay a pretty price for your head...Just the head mind, nothing attached!"

"So you think his defiling days are over do you?"

"You thought you could escape me! What are you going to do now, Wizard?..........That'll do it."

"These are Gundabad Wargs! They will outrun you!"

"THESE are Rhosgobel Rabbits! I'd like to see them try...."

brilliant.. [In reply to] Can't Post

I've said it before and I'll say it again,Barry humphries is fantastic as the goblin king,its one of those performances that will be loved for years to come.a true stroke of genius casting him in the role.the way he delivers every line,the mocking bow as he says '...king under the mountain' the facial movements,everything really.truly great.love it to bits.can't compliment him enough SmileSmileSmile

Arrow....black arrow,I have saved you to the last.you have never failed me and always I have recovered you.I had you from my father and he from old.if ever you came from the forges of the true king under the mountain,go now and speed well

Agreed [In reply to] Can't Post

In my opinion Humphries is right up there with the actors in the roles of Bilbo, Gollum, Thorin, Balin, Bofur, Galadriel and the three Wizards.

"These are Gundabad Wargs! They will outrun you!"

"THESE are Rhosgobel Rabbits! I'd like to see them try...."
