I think I may be developing a fever. Just as I was about to go to bed, this first verse of a filksong came to me. It'd need more verses, since it only has the first verse and the chorus, but... uhm... for a five minute burst of inspiration, it's not horrible? Well, aside from the inherent horrible nature of filk, I mean.

Another Orc Horde
Rachel Blackman
to the tune of "Another Postcard" by Barenaked Ladies

(Every one serves, every one serves, every one serves... ah-huh)

You can't imagine so many orc hordes all across the land,
All of 'em burnin' and pillaging, while lookin' for our band.
Never thought we'd find that Saruman's our enemy,
But seems he's workin' now with Sauron to enslave the free.

There's orcs with long swords,
An orc who's carryin' a mace,
Some just have nailed boards,
There's one who's been hit in the face.

Another orc horde, with Uruk-hai...
And every one serves the flaming eye...
Another orc horde, with Uruk-hai...
And every one serves the flaming eye...

Someday I need to write down the lyrics for 'KKnockin' on Dol Gudur' (to the tune of 'Knockin' on Heaven's Door' by GnR).

Re:

That's Mister Dylan for the original artist... there have been many covers of that song; G&R's is... passable, particularly the gravedigging sound effects.
You frighten me you're so good at these... I envy!
Now we just need verses. If I knew the song, I'd offer an attempt, but I don't. :)
