14. Arwen Evenstar

Author's note:

Sung by the inhabitants of Gondor; still another tune from the duo of Saruman and Glorfindel. Based on "Mrs. Robinson," by Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel.


We'd like to know
A little bit of history
And your past.
We'd like to help you make
A Gondor splash.
Look around you – all you see
Are cold white marble walls.
Stroll around the town –
Someday you'll feel at home.

And here's to you, Arwen Evenstar,
Gondor loves you more than you will know (Wo wo wo)
We wish you please, Arwen Evenstar,
Elvish ways to bring to us today (Hey hey hey, hey hey hey)

Do not think this is a place
That hides more than it shows.
Give us smiles and show us that Elf glamor.
It isn't secret
That the Evenstar is here.
Most of all, you need to have a
Couple kids.

Coo coo ca-choo, Arwen Evenstar
Gondor loves you more than you will know (Wo wo wo)
We wish you please, Arwen Evenstar,
Elvish ways to bring to us today (Hey hey hey, hey hey hey)

Sitting in the throne room
On a Highday afternoon,
Listening to all the lords debate
Quite the contrast
To your own past
When you had to choose
Never think by coming here you'll lose

Where have you gone, Eless' Telcontar?
A kingdom turns its lonely eyes to you (Ooo ooo ooo)
What's that you say, Arwen Evenstar?
"Aragorn has left and gone away" (Hey hey hey, hey hey hey)
