Middle Earth Shanty-Filking Can't Post

Rather than clogging the Tolkienia thread with unrelated nonsense, I'm starting a new thread for the filks I promised.

Here's one I'm calling Sailing Home to Numenor, based on Rollin' Down to Old Maui. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pla7nDYciI4

Once more we sail with the northerly gale
Through the ice and wind and rain.
But Meneltarma and Anduni-e
We soon shall see again.
Six hellish months we've passed away
On the icecold Northern Sea
But now we're bound from Arda's ground
Going home to Westerness-e.

Chorus:
Sailing home to Numenor, me boys
Sailing home to Numenor
We're homeward bound
From Arda's ground
Sailing home to Numenor

Now we cross wide seas on an easterly breeze
Towards our island home.
Our mainmast sprung, our searching done
And we've not got far to roam.
Our tops'l yard is carried away
What care we for that now?
A living gale is after us,
Thank Ulmo we're homeward bound.

Chorus

How soft the breeze through the island trees
Now the ice is far astern.
Our elv'n fair maids in grassy glades
Are awaiting our return.
E'en now their big grey eyes look out
Hoping some fine day to see
Our threadbare sails running 'fore the gales
As we steer for Westerness-e

Chorus x2


They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; These see the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep.
