The Lyrics

A parody of possibly the ultimate hippie-music song. Smoke 'em if ya got 'em. Not that I condone pot-smoking, but hobbits, among those over whom The Lady rules, seem to do it.
I'm just mad about Elfin.
Ah, Elfin's mad about me.
I'm-a just a-mad about-a Elfin.
She's just a-mad about me.

They call her Darlin' Arwen.
(Quite rightly!)
They call her Darlin' Arwen.
(Quite spritely!)
They call her Darlin' Arwen.

I'm just mad about five-feet.
Ah, five-feet's mad about me.
I'm-a just a-mad about-a five-feet.
She's just a-mad about me.

They call her Darlin' Arwen.
(Quite rightly!)
They call her Darlin' Arwen.
(Quite spritely!)
They call her Darlin' Arwen.

Born high, forever to fly.
Ah, princess, royalty's elf.
Born a-high, a-forever to fly.
But walkin', she trips over herself.

They call her Darlin' Arwen.
(Quite rightly!)
They call her Darlin' Arwen.
(Quite spritely!)
They call her Darlin' Arwen.

She's so darlin', oh so darlin'...

(trippy-dippy-hippie musical break)

This girl drives me bananas.
She puts me in a sudden craze.
Ah, this girl drives me bananas.
I think that this is more than a phase!

They call her Darlin' Arwen.
(Quite rightly!)
They call her Darlin' Arwen.
(Quite spritely!)
They call her Darlin' Arwen.

Ahhhh... Elfin.
Yeah... I'm a-just a-mad about her.
I'm a-just a-mad about-a Elfin.
She's just a-mad about me.

They call her Darlin' Arwen.
(Quite rightly!)
They call her Darlin' Arwen.
(Quite spritely!)
They call her Darlin' Arwen.

She's so darlin', oh so darlin'...

(fadeout with hippie music)
This should keep me in her good graces for the rest of the year... unless she's offended by my use of the term "sprite," in which case I'll have to write something that wallows in my shame.
