The Lyrics

Huge fan of the LOTR films, and my favourite storyline has always been with Frodo and Sam. Incidentally, my favourite Metallica song is Sad But True, and I loved it the first time I heard it. So here is a mesh of two of my favourite things. I hope you like.
Hey (hey), had no life
Killed my friend for the precious
Hey (hey), waste my life
About 500 years

They (they) took my ring
The sun is burning my skin now
They (they) tortured me
Till I cried “Shire, Baggins”

Hobbitses lost in the gloom
Going where no flowers bloom
Now I lead them to Mount Doom
My precious

As they sleep, I will plot
Kill them, then leave them to rot
Then I’ll take back what I want
I just want my precious

My precious

Hey (hey), not that way
You’ll get caught at the Black Gate
No (no), sneakier way
We’ll go through a cave

Go (go) through the cave
I am gonna wait outside
Go (go), meet the beast
I’ll come to dig your grave

Forbidden Pool, I tried to fish
But was captured, and now I wish
For Frodo to be Shelob’s dish
And my precious

He’ll be stung, he won’t heal
And he’ll end up as her meal
Then from his corpse I will steal
I will get my precious

My precious

What? (what?) He’s alive
Climbing onto Mount Doom now
Saved (saved) by the Fat One
That just isn’t fair

Hey (hey), got it back
Had to bite off his finger
End (end) of my life
But I don’t really care

He ain’t feeling very fine
On his hands, only got nine
Now I take back what is mine
My precious

Now I fall into the pit
And I grab a hold of it
Close to death, don’t give a sh**
No fuss

My precious
The pacing is a little off, I know.

Good original, good parody... I did one called Precious Ring (parody of Precious Things by Tori Amos) a while back.

My precious!!!! I enjoyed the LOTR trilogies. Anyways, reverting back to your previous comment from your other parody, the chorus idea you had is not a bad idea. Perhaps you can make another version of Wannabe?

Oh, ok, I'm sorry, Ned. It's just that this parody you wrote here caught my eye right away, and I was just trying to save time. Then again, I wasn't thinking straight. I understand what you're saying. I'll do that from now on.
