re: The Story of the Ring (Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah)

The Story of the Ring
Music: Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah
Lyrics by Hannariel/Brioney


~I’ve heard there was a precious ring,~
~The kind that makes a Gollum sing.~
~I’m sure you’ve heard about this story haven’t ya?~
~With Bilbo there was a riddle game; the answer Gollum couldn’t name,~
~And Bilbo escapes thinking hallelujah.

~Hallelujah, Hallelujah,~
~Hallelujah, Hallelujah~

~Bilbo kept the ring for many years,~
~But gave it up almost in tears.~
~You know there’s much more to this story don’t ya?~
~Gandalf’s fellowship list on the slate is Frodo and the other eight;~
~An epic quest begins. Sing Hallelujah.~

~Hallelujah, Hallelujah,~
~Hallelujah, Hallelujah~

~Then Boromir seeks out the ring;~
~The group torn asunder he did bring.~
~But Gollum follows; surely you’d know it wouldn’t ya?~
~Now Sam & Frodo on their own; through dangerous peril & murky gloom~
~On to the Crack of Doom, sing hallelujah.~

~Hallelujah, Hallelujah,~
~Hallelujah, Hallelujah~

~Sam and Frodo at the crack of Doom~
~Would send the ring to its fiery tomb.~
~You don’t think this is the end yet now do ya?~
~‘Cause Frodo seeming quite insane; the ring he says is his to claim.~
~But Gollum sees the ring thinks “Hallelujah.”

~Hallelujah, Hallelujah,~
~Hallelujah, Hallelujah~

~Then sneaky Gollum bites off the ring,~
~Falls off the cliff; cause he has no wing.~
~I’ll Bet your happy to see their end now aren’t ya?~
~This ends the epic of the ring; a story of which the minstrels sing.~
~A blazing chorus singing Hallelujah!

~Hallelujah, Hallelujah,~
~Hallelujah, Hallelujah.~

I realized I forgot the last verse so I edited it above.

Oh, wonderful!! Very well done!!

That is one of Tam's favorite tunes. Perhaps we could borrow your lyrics to sing at an Animal House concert sometime (after you debut them with a LMB concert of course!). We'd be sure and give you credit!!
