"Hobbit's Drinking Song" Can't Post

The last poem of my old parody poem's I'm going to post... unless I track down Galadriel singing the "Queen of the Night" Aria

Hobbits' Drinking Song
By Gerontius (after Monty Python's Drinking Song)

Ungoliant was a real pissant
Who was very rarely stable.
Butterbur, Butterbur:
He would often slur
But could drink you under the table.
Could drink more beer
Than poor departed Deagol
And Denethor
Would be on the floor
If he had a drink with Smeagol

There's nothing Eru
Couldn't tell you
'Bout the raising of the wrist.
Saruman, himself, was permanently pissed.

Of his own free will,
On half a pint of shandy
Was particularly ill.
Bilbo, they say,
Could stick it away,
Half a crate of whiskey every day.
Hammerhand, Hammerhand
Was a flaming firebrand,
Sam was fond of his stout,
And Galadriel
Would be drinking well
"When other lights go out."

Yes Saruman himself is particularly missed
A lovely little wizard, but a bugger when he's pissed.

You're a genius, Gerontius.

This I like... [In reply to] Can't Post

Hudibrastic blasphemy! I love it.

I'm sorry for overreacting to the other.

Man is but an ass if he go about to expound this dream.

That's great...claps [In reply to] Can't Post

This clever rewrite inspired me to write my own version with The Hobbit dwarves, keeping more of the Python lines in.

Now I have the song stuck in my head, (there's never enough Monty P stuck in my head) Tongue

Thanks for posting Gerontius.

Good on Galadriel for hanging in there!
