1. The Silmarillion Slaying Song

Disclaimer: The world, and characters are Tolkien’s; the song belongs whoever holds the copyright.

The Silmarillion Slaying song.

(as preformed by the Fëanorian choir)
Words and melody composed by Maglor (after a long night of drinking and one too many fangirls)
Directed by Daeron of Doriath
Solos preformed by Maedhros, Maglor, Celegorm, and Fëanor

Verse 1: Maedhros
Dashing through Arda,
On a wondrous stallion grey,
O’er the fields we go,
Fighting all the way. (ha ha ha)
Horns in chill air ring,
Making spirits bright;
What fun it is to ride and sing this slaying song tonight.

Refrain: (everyone)
Silmarils, Silmarils, sparkle all the way,
Oh what fun it is to fight and chase them night and day!
Hey! Silmarils, Silmarils, sparkle all the way,
Oh what fun it is to fight and chase them night and day!

Verse two: Celegorm
An Age or two ago
I thought I’d take a ride
And soon my brothers dear,
Were riding by my side.
The wars were long and hard,
Misfortune seemed our lot,
For we found only doom and death,
And the Silmarils were lost.

Refrain: (everyone)
Silmarils, Silmarils, sparkle all the way,
Oh what fun it is to try and regain them night and day!
Silmarils, Silmarils, sparkle all the way,
Oh what fun it is to try and regain them night and day!

Verse three: Maglor
An Age or two ago,
This story I must tell,
I held a shining jewel,
Yet in the seas it fell.
The ages drifted by,
As by the seas I stayed,
And soon tales of the Silmarils,
Will quickly fade away.

Refrain: (everyone)
Silmarils, Silmarils, sparkle all the way,
Oh what fun it is to stand and cast them all away! Hey!
Silmarils, Silmarils, sparkle all the way,
Oh what fun it is to stand and cast them all away!

Verse four: Fëanor
The Silmarils shine bright,
Go at it while you’re young,
Take your brothers tonight,
And sing this slaying song.
Just swear an oath for me,
And ride with greatest speed,
And when the world comes to an End,
Perhaps we’ll be redeemed.

Refrain: (everyone)
Silmarils, Silmarils, sparkle all the way,
Oh what fun it is to fight and chase them night and day! Hey!
Silmarils, Silmarils, sparkle all the way,
Oh what fun it is to fight and chase them night and day.
Chase them night and day!

*mad applause*
