3. Gríma the Wormtongue
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
