The Lyrics

This is a repost of my Lord of the Rings Song "Trilogy" of "Riders of Rohan", "Mumakil" (TNT by AC/DC) and "Nazgul" (Blackbird by The Beatles). Mumakil was the name of the immense war mastodons that almost wiped out the Riders of Rohan and Nazgul is the name of the Dark Riders of the flying dragon like beasts
Riders of Rohan, Riders of Rohan
Cast out from our homeland
Behest of Saruman
Theoden's mind is overthrown
These wasted lands we roam
Riders of Rohan

There are killers at The Helm
Our Deep soon to o'erwhelm
At dawn of the fifth day
That's when we join the fray
Until the morn is nigh
We shall slay the Uruk-Hai
Killers at The Helm

Men, your oaths you must fulfill
Men, your oaths you must fulfill
It is Theoden's will
Charge on down this hill
We may stay the doom of men
Or ride to world's end
Oaths must be fulfilled

Riders of Rohan, Riders of Rohan
Tis Gondor's doom we scan
Blow up the Dark Lord's plan
Six thousand in our rank, we
Crush the Mordor flank
Riders of Rohan

Riders of Rohan, Riders of Rohan ....

(Well, looks like the Riders have once again arrived just in the nick of time to save the world of men but, Hark!, what is that commotion coming from their left flank! ....)

Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi!

See us rumbling on the horizon
Like the scourge of the Rohirrim
Here to sweep you from the field
If you know what we mean
Archers on the top of us
Crush you with our feet
Don't feel arrows
Don't feel your spear
See your horses rear
Cause we're the MUMAKIL, we're dynamite
(MUMAKIL) and we'll win this fight
(MUMAKIL) We're the Sauron load
(MUMAKIL) Sung of in odes

We're monstrous, mean, just a death machine
Cause the fall of man
Harad's invincible beasts of war
So back off your horsemen
Pack up your knives
Flee back to Rohan, run for your life
The Oliphaunts are back in town
And Gondor's going down

Cause we're the MUMAKIL, we're Harad's pride
(MUMAKIL) And we'll sweep you aside
(MUMAKIL) We're the Sauron load
(MUMAKIL) Squash you like toads

MUMAKIL (Oi! Oi! Oi!) .. MUMAKIL (Oi! Oi! Oi!)

(Finally, I'd like to wrap up this set with a heartfelt tribute to those shrieking riders of the fell beasts, The Nazgul)

Nazgul shrieking in the dead of night
Mount those hellish beasts and learn to fly
All your lives
You have just been waiting for the Third War to arise

Nazgul shrieking in Osgiliath skies
Oh, those Gondor sons doth quail from thee
All your lives
You have just been waiting for the Dark Lord to break free

Nazgul fly, Nazgul fly
Into the blight of the Dark Lord's night

Nazgul fly, Nazgul fly
Into the steeds of the Gondor knights

Nazgul fly, Nazgul fly
Into the heat of the Mount Doom light

(Cue sound effect of a Dark Riders shrieking)

Nazgul shrieking toward the Mount Doom light
Oh the Dark Lord's schemes have gone awry
All this time
We have just been baiting you to set up your demise
We have just been baiting you to set up your demise
Frodo has been waiting for this moment to arise

I reposted this simply because I mispelled my screen name as Callmelennnie (with 3 N's) on the first go round which meant it never got included in my "Lennie Top 100" index. ... Moreover, I get the biggest kick from the image of a line of 40 foot tall war elephants chanting "Oi!, Oi! Oi! ..." like some gaggle of lower class Australian yobbos

I still support this LOTR entry packed with not one, but THREE PARODIES! Thanks for reposting, and I'll be sure to include this in the project. Take a trip to the LOTR thread in the song parodies section if you want to post it yourself :c), and let me know if you need the link.

Withholding a vote on this one, just because I dislike the OS so much...that I couldn't get myself to even listen to it long enough to make a judgment on pacing. ; ) BUT I wanted you to know I stopped by...since I promised I would...

Good news. I just sold the rights to these three LOTR-based parodies for 50,000 Amiright bucks to the to the legendary Middle Earth folk rock band -- "Shards of Narsil" ....... Wouldn't that be a great name for a band, "Shards of Narsil?"
