This is a part of the story from the Lord of the Rings. The song looks similar to Queen’s
Prophet’s Song to those who know it. And interestingly enough, it fits the melody.
The song could have been performed by the Queen of the Elves, Galadriel.
Oh, Oh, People o'Middle Earth, listen to the warning The Wizard, he said:Beware the Storm that gathers there Don't dare look at Mordor. I dreamed I saw on a tower stair spreading his hands on the multitude there summoning orcs for a bloody war A fiery eye was watching from far.So watch as fear takes The Gray man's gaze Hope of the Earth are Hobbits brave.I see no day, if Frodo fails, so grey is the face of Gandalf the Wizard. Oh, oh, people o'Middle Earth listen to the warning the prophet, he said.For soon the veil of Sauron falls he'll be after you land. Oh, oh, people of the Earth form a small but punchy Fellowship. Go and fight the new Dark Lord return with your life, though!He told of Sauron as mad and foul taking the weak and seducible soul Late too late all the people run the Kings of Gondor, now must return. From Gollums love was The Ring estranged, had kept it his own, his preciousss gain. If Bilbo kept, what Sauron made then death all around will be your dowry. Oh, oh, people of The Shire listen to the warning as Gandalf said:For those who hear and mark my words I have got a good plan: aaahaaahhahhahhhOh, you and you of Hobbits' zoo you'll be running to destroy running to destroy the very One Ring Ohohhh, flee for your life Who heed me not let all the Nazgúl smell you. Ooooh, fear for your life, deceive you not the Eye of him will take you should The Ring seduce you.<overlays> Ahahhh, Frodo can you hear me? (Frodo can you hear me...) And now I know, and know I know, and now I know, and know I know that you will bear it And now I know, know I know, now I know, know I know now I know, know I know, now I know, know I know, now I know (now I know) Sauron will shake, his tower break Sauron will shake, his power break Go destroy The Ring, The Ring, The Ring, The Ring The Ring, The Ring, The Ring, The Ring...(the ring) Frodo go, Frodo go, […] Oh-uh, … Listen to the wise, listen to wise, listen to the wise, listen to wise, listen to the Wise Man Fro-do la-la-la-la Fro-do la-la-la-la (7x) Fro- Sam- do weis (5x) Go a- throw -way Ring Go throw a- way Ring (3x) Ah, ahhahh, ahhhahhhhh, ahhhhahhhhh, ahhhhhhhh Listen to the man listen to the man listen to the man listen to the great man! </overlays> <guitar (or similar Elven instrument) /> God give him grace to purge this place and Samwise his friend may come to his rescue. Oh, oh, mind that Sméagul. he might be important, let him live! The vision fades, and Gandalf says Go and fight the mad man! But Frodo fears, still Frodo dares encounter these nightmares.
I have the greatest respect for Queen for writing and singing and playing such an excellent song as the
Prophet’s song actually is. They are a real source for inspiration.
