International Legolas Month Song Parody Palooza

Challenge Details

Put on your pointy ears and meet me at the karaoke stage at high noon, friends, 'cause this fandom ain't big enough for the lot of us!

Love him or hate him, you've got to admit: Legolas rules fandom. It's time to pay homage to this phenomenon in blond (or brunet), and what better way than to let our hair down in a parody songfest the likes of which we never suspected we were even capable of?

The only restrictions are: the parody must have Legolas in it as a primary singer, er, character, and it must be a parody of an existing song. Other than that, it's every parodist for him or herself, and may the best Dwarf win.* ;-)

This challenge ends when June of 2004 does. Please include a link to the original lyrics, and if you know of a MIDI site carrying the tune, that might also be nice.

*Please don't sue me for plagiarism, Mr. Jackson.

There is no excuse for this. Oh, all right, it was Marta's fault. (Though she's now trying to claim it was all Dwim's idea...) Over on the H-A list she declared June 2004 International Legolas Month, because of all the June birthdays who'd requested Legolas drabbles, and challenged anyone to write a fic incorporating the phrase. It's not quite a fic, but my Terrible Comic Song muse was roused from deepest slumber...
