Orc-Slaying Ditty, The: 1. The Orc-Slaying Ditty

This song is based on a verse from my fic Flawed and Fair, in which the guards of Gondolin get plastered and remember the old days, when they actually got to go out and kill things. And then they sing. To quote myself:

Ecthelion [...] had never understood why drunken singing had to be so very bad. [...] Most of the favoured songs either had a hideous nonsensical refrain, or mentioned dead orcs. Or, in some truly unredeemable cases, both.

Enjoy.

*****
The Orc-Slaying Ditty
(As sung by the Gondolindrim)
*****

Our arrows are flying,
Our swords brightly glowing.
The Orcs are all dying!
Their black blood is flowing!
O! Tril-lil-lil-leelly,
Their blood's flowing freely!
Ha! Ha!

The orcs are all dropping!
Once their blood starts gushing,
Orc limbs need some chopping,
Orc heads need some crushing!
O! Tril-lil-lil-lelly,
Their brains turn to jelly!
Ha! Ha!


Oh, we love patrolling!
Oh, truly 'tis thrilling,
When orc heads are rolling!
No joy like orc-killing!
O! Tril-lil-lil-lolly,
To slay orcs is jolly!
Ha! Ha!
