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.
