3. Gríma the Wormtongue

Sung by the Edoras Children's Choir





Gríma the wormtongue was a nasty vicious soul
With a pasty face and two drooping eyes
and the glamour of a troll.

Gríma the wormtongue was a wizard's pawn they say,
He wore dreary clothes and everyone
knows how he came to Edoras one day.

There must have been some magic in the
words he whispered there
for soon he spoke for Théoden
and always had his ear

O
Gríma the wormtongue
was a spy for Saruman,
After he was bought he did scheme
and plot to make Théoden his pawn.

Thumpetty thump thump, thumpety thump thump
Look at Gííma ride,
Thumpetty thump thump, thumpety thump thump
To the white hand's side.

Gííma the wormtongue feared the wizard's staff that day.
So he said to Háma, "We don't want drama
take the old man's stick away."
Into Meduseld, with a very sneaky plan
three hunters came with Gandalf Greyhame
his staff still in his hand.

He went right down the hall to stand
in front of Théoden
He flattened Gríma with his staff
Turned the king alright again

Poor Gríma the wormtongue
Théoden then cast away
But he left the gate saying
"Just you wait
I'll be back again some day"

Thumpetty thump thump, thumpety thump thump
Look at Gríma ride
Thumpetty thump thump, thumpety thump thump
To the white hand's side



Merry christmas!
