1. Lyrics

You know Elrond and Elros, Elrohir, Elladan,

Gil-Galad, Gildor, Celeborn, and Cirdan,

But do you recall

The most famous Elfie of all?

Maedhros the Red-haired Elfie

Had some very bright red hair,

And if you ever saw him

You would even say he's fair.

All of the dark-haired Noldor

Used to laugh and call him names;

They wouldn't let poor Maedhros

Join in any Elfie games.

Then one scary Moon-rise Eve,

Cirdan came to say:

"Maedhros with your sword so bright,

Won't you fight the Orcs tonight?"

Then how the Elfies loved him

As they shouted out with glee,

"Maedhros the Red-haired Elfie,

You'll go down in history."

Notes: Moon-rise Eve means before the rising of the moon; the first battle of the Noldor being Battle-under-Stars. To hear the song and read the original lyrics, check out Rudolf the Red-nose Reindeer.
