cloudstreet Favourite Parodies (110* d) RE: Favourite Parodies 03 Mar 04

From my Aussie mate, Martin Pearson (we play together as "Never the Twain" for those who aren't lucky enough to be Australian) -

The Gandalf Song

(To the tune of Country Roads)

Almost Heaven, old West Farthing
Misty Mountains, Brandywine River
Life is short there, shorter than four feet
You can always trust a hobbit if he's got enough to eat

The road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began
Now ever on, the road has gone
And I must follow if I can

Shadowfax me down to Rohan
Minas Tirith is where I must be goin
The ring is nasty, but I've got to know for sure
Got to find those old rolled up scrolls of Isildur

I hear the voices of Sauron, they call to me
Saruman advises me to give the drugs away
Sitting on the tower I get the feeling big bird's coming soon
I'll fly away,
Glad to be Grey.

Joined the company, they're going to need a seer
To lead them through the dusty caverns of Moria
Found a balrog, down by Balin's tomb
I wish they'd had a safety net installed in Kazad Dhum.

I have great reservations about the idea that this parody damaging the popularity of the original.
