Parody of "Shake It Off" by Taylor Swift


(Parody of "Shake It Off" by Taylor Swift)
I always want to eat, I'm short with hairy feet
That's what people say, mmm-mmm
That's what people say, mmm-mmm

I'm going on a Quest, With 13 dwarves with hairy chests
At least, that's what people say, mmm-mmm
That's what people say, mmm-mmm

I'm disapproving, can't stop, won't stop moving
This journey's got me bruising, I'm falling behind
But "It's gonna be alright."

Cause it's time to leave the Shire
Find a ring that's forged from fire,
With a wizard I admire
Named Gandalf! Gandalf!
Yeah, we're walking every day,
The dragon Smaug we're gonna slay,
Led by a wizard wearing grey,
Named Gandalf! Gandalf!

The Goblins filled with rage!
And the Elves they never age
I’m trying to stay alive, mmm-mmm
From Armies 1, 2, 3, 4, 5! mmm-mmm
Meeting Smaug all on my own (Smaug all on my own)
I'm running to and fro (running to and fro),
But this ring won't let me show, mmm-mmm
And that's what they don't know, mmm-mmm

Goblins are showing, Sting can't stop, won't stop glowing
But I keep on knowing in my mind
That "It's gonna be alright."


Just think while you've been getting down and dirty
in the Misty Mountains of the Earth that is Middle,
You could've been getting down to this. Sick. Riddle!

I’m a hot mess
‘cause of my Precious -
It’s the One True Ring,
That no one’s gonna take!
But answer now, if you dare:
What’s one more than a pair
and will musically delight you for comedic sake?
