Filksongs

For some reason we got talking about filksongs at firefly. I mentioned that I had made a couple of filksongs based on songs by popular beat combos. There seemed to be genuine interest on the part of landvaettir at least, so here are the lyrics.

My Own Worst Enemy by Lit

as sung by Feanor after his death

Can we forget about the things I swore when was I mad?
I didn't mean to call on that,
I can't remember what I vowed or what you doomed for me.

Please tell me, please tell me,
Why, the boats are all on fire,
And I charged a host of balrogs,
assaulted beasts of darkness, last night

And I'm dead, dead.

It's no suprise to me I am my own worst enemy
'cause every now and then I kick the living shit out of me

The Silmarils are all lost and there's an army, still fighting

Please tell me
Why, the boats are all on fire,
and I charged a host of balrogs,
assaulted beasts of darkness, last night

And i'm dead

Please tell me,
Why, the boats are all on fire,
and I charged a host of balrogs,
assaulted beasts of darkness, last night

It's no suprise to me I am my own worst enemy
'cause every now and then I kick the living shit out of me

Can we forget about the things I swore when I mad
I didn't mean to call on that.

Also, I made a start at a version of A Day in the Life by the Beatles, off Sgt Pepper, about the death of Turin, as sung by a random person. However this is not finished and is just the first verse.

I read /Annals/ this year, oh yeah,
about a cursèd man who mastered doom
and though the news was rather sad,
well, I just had to laugh,
I saw his epitaph

He cut his guts out with a blade,
he didn't realise that this was his fate

a crowd of people stood and stared
they'd seen his face before
nobody was really sure if they should cheer or mourn

Enough fun for tonight, I think I will go to bed.
