We come, we come with rattle of bone
by The Sprouts of Wrath
from November 2007
Adapted from: “We come, we come with roll of drum: ta-runda runda runda rom! We come, we come with horn and drum: ta-runa runa runa rom! To Isengard!”, Treebeard’s song on the road to Isengard in The Two Towers, The Lord of the Rings, by John Ronald Reuel Tolkien
We come, we come with rattle of bone: ra-tatat ra-tatat ra-tatat tat!
We come, we come with whail and scream: wooooo oooo oooo arghh!
To Middle Earth! Though Middle Earth be biscuits and cookies with songs so nice;
Though Middle Earth be soft and comfy, as warm as toast and here there’s no vice,
We go, we go, we go to party, to drink the ale and eat the sausage;
We’re the Skeleton Army, wherever we go there’s a bit of an outrage!
From a land of gloom with tramp of doom, with rattle of bone, we come, we come;
To Middle Earth with doom we come!
With doom we come, with doom we come!
