Farewell to Middle Earth – from The Battle of the 5 Musicals (based on The Battle of the Five Armies) – FAWM Song

We have now reached the end of the story
there’s nothing else to be said
the adventure has come to an end
and it’s time to head back home

We have turned the final page
it’s time to put the book away,
and we know that tomorrow
is just another day…

So now the is time to say goodbye
we shall part from this world stronger than friends
never fear what happens thereafter
it’s time for the final adventure

So now we can say the end
for there’s still more stories to tell
the book is closing and with a heavy heart I must say
Farewell to Middle Earth

I will never forget
all the friends I’ve met along the way
and the memories of the friends I have lost
will never go away

But now as I turn the final bend
and my home is just ahead
my heart is slowly breaking
as I can never be who I once was…

So now the is time to say goodbye
we shall part from this world stronger than friends
never fear what happens thereafter
it’s time for the final adventure

So now we can say the end
for there’s still more stories to tell
the book is closing and with a heavy heart I must say
Farewell to Middle Earth

I know the story is over
but in a way, it still continues
because there’s still a part of the story
that has yet to be told

Now the is time to say goodbye
we shall part from this world stronger than friends
never fear what happens thereafter
it’s time for the final adventure

So now we can say the end
for there’s still more stories to tell
the book is closing and with a heavy heart I must say…
Farewell to Middle Earth!

It’s Raining Fire (And We’re All Gonna Die) – from The Musical of Desolation (based on The Desolation of Smaug) – FAWM Song

I look out and see the mountain and I see the fires within. And I pray a prayer that the gods above would protect my brothers and the rest…

We are doomed to see this day as the heat of fire comes crashing down. What have we done to deserve this fate? Was it because we were too late to save our brothers, to save our friends, and now, I don’t know know what to say…

It’s raining fire, and we’re all gonna die, we can’t escape this time, no matter how hard we try. It’s raining fire, and we’re all gonna die, how can this be, I hope that you remember me…

We are all gonna die tonight, and at least we’ll all be together, we’ve been through so many dangers, and I’m sure we’ll be facing make more. But now I see that the dragon’s wrath is quickly floating over our heads…

It’s raining fire, and we’re all gonna die, we can’t escape this time, no matter how hard we try. It’s raining fire, and we’re all gonna die, how can this be, I hope that you remember me…

It’s all your fault, Gandalf, you should have known this was going to happen, and yet you did nothing to prevent it. But now I’m going to die all alone, and I have no one else to blame but you…

(brief instrumental solo)

And now comes the test of our time, do we live, or do we die? What else can I say, as I hope for a brand-new day, where dragon-fire is nothing more than a bad dream and I can see the sun once again…

It’s raining fire, and we’re all gonna die, we can’t escape this time, no matter how hard we try. It’s raining fire, and we’re all gonna die, how can this be, I hope that you remember me…

Fangirls Just Don’t Understand – from the Harry Moffer Musical/parody of DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince’s “Parents Just Don’t Understand” – FAWM Song

You think that she’s your biggest fan, but in reality, she’s your worst nightmare
Don’t fool yourself, there’s so many people out there who are like her
You might think that you love her, but that’s not the truth
She always chases after boys like you, she doesn’t care about who you are
So if you were wise, you’d better get ready to run…

I hate to say it, but fangirls just don’t understand. They don’t get the fact that you’re human just like them. I hate to break it to you, but fangirls just don’t understand. It’s not like they don’t care, but they’re the crazy ones, and the crazy ones are who you need to watch out for…

you need to watch your back
they’re coming to get you
you need to watch your back
or they’ll snatch you and take you away…

You say you like her, but do you really know her?
How do you know if she really likes you back?
She’s a crazy-minded fangirl who’s looking for the next big hotshot
And her eye is set on you
She’s a crazy-minded fangirl who’s looking to cause some trouble
You better stay away from her if you know what’s good for you…

I hate to say it, but fangirls just don’t understand. They don’t get the fact that you’re human just like them. I hate to break it to you, but fangirls just don’t understand. It’s not like they don’t care, but they’re the crazy ones, and the crazy ones are who you need to watch out for…

you need to watch your back
they’re coming to get you
you need to watch your back
or they’ll snatch you and take you away…

I hate to say it, but fangirls just don’t understand. They don’t get the fact that you’re human just like them. I hate to break it to you, but fangirls just don’t understand. You need to break away from them or else…you’re gonna lose yourself, you’re gonna lose yourself, you’re gonna lose yourself, you’re gonna lose yourself…

Misty Mountains – from The Unexpected Musical (based on An Unexpected Journey) – FAWM Song

Dwarves: I look over the Misty Mountains and I see our home,
but our home is not our home because there’s a dragon living in it

he killed our families and stole our gold
that’s why we have to make this journey to take our gold back from him

as he sleeps thinking no ones going to challenge him
we will sneak up behind him and give him what for

we will cross over the Misty Mountains before the sun rises
we will take our gold and our mountain back from him!

I Only Want Jesus in My Life (from the 2000 Christmas Episode of “Away in England”) – FAWM Song

The song: This song was featured in the controversial Christmas 2000 episode of the fictional TV show “Away in England“. In that particular episode, Lydia Morrison (the main character) and her friends Preston Howard and Ashley Slater are upset to know that their fellow (magical) classmates don’t know what the true meaning of Christmas is. To combat this, Preston (a self-professed Christian) declares that he will only have one thing for Christmas, and that is for everyone he knows to have a personal relationship with Jesus, which is unheard of in wizarding England.

Plus, the song received many downloads the first week it debuted, it crashed the show’s website.


Preston Howard: Why should it matter what you want for Christmas? All you’re asking for is material things. Do you really think that toys and video games will make you happy or bring you joy? Plus, why would you put your Christmas wishes into the hands of an old fat man who drives a sleigh, plays with elves, and prefers children over adults? (kids protest)

Lydia Morrison: OK, Preston, what do you want for Christmas?

Preston: I’ll tell you. (Five girls (played by Deirdre Dara, Candy Cane Brenner, Andrea Marshall, Kierra Ashley, and Queenetta Carroll) wearing Santa dresses come out and start dancing. Music starts playing.)

You can keep your Christmas trees and you can keep your pretty ornaments, because that kind of thing just isn’t for me. You can keep your tinsel and you can keep your Christmas carols, because to me, that’s not what Christmas is all about

You can forget about me decorating Christmas trees and you can forget about taking me on shopping sprees. Santa isn’t coming down my chimney. You may think I’m crazy but that’s not what I want. But you may not like what I’m wishing for, but this is what I really want…

I don’t want no toys or video games, and I don’t want the newest books and I don’t want the latest clothes, I only want Jesus in my life; I don’t care for the latest hit songs and I don’t want to watch any movies in theaters, I only want Jesus in my life!

You think you like that certain toy now, but what you don’t know is that you’ll eventually outgrow that toy and you’ll be throwing it away. But I have something new to offer you, something that you’ll never outgrow, something you can never throw away, something that you can have for the rest of your life…

I don’t want no toys or video games, and I don’t want the newest books and I don’t want the latest clothes, I only want Jesus in my life; I don’t care for the latest hit songs and I don’t want to watch any movies in theaters, I only want Jesus in my life!

(Lydia) So let me understand this, because I’m a bit confused here: you say there’s only one thing you want and you don’t care about getting any gifts because you think gift-giving is nothing more than being greedy and ungrateful? What’s wrong with wanting toys for Christmas? they exist only for your enjoyment, so why would you want to trade your toys for something that doesn’t come gift-wrapped in a box?

(Preston) Because Jesus is the only thing that I want to have; he can bring you everlasting life and set you free from your sins. Jesus died for you and me, he loves all of us, as you can see; to reject the gift of salvation that he offers you is to be a fool, and I’m nobody’s fool…

And if you think that all you need is the latest stuff to get through a life that’s tough, well I’ve got news for you; that way of thinking is not going to get you anywhere. So set aside your Christmas lists and join me as I proclaim that Jesus is the savior of the world, and his love and sacrifice is all you’ll ever need!

I don’t want no toys or video games, and I don’t want the newest books and I don’t want the latest clothes, I only want Jesus in my life; I don’t care for the latest hit songs and I don’t want to watch any movies in theaters, I only want Jesus in my life!

I don’t want no toys or video games, and I don’t want the newest books and I don’t want the latest clothes, I only want Jesus in my life; I don’t care for the latest hit songs and I don’t want to watch any movies in theaters, I only want Jesus in my life! (Applause and cheers break out)

FAWM song: Dammit, Gandalf! from The Unexpected Musical (based on An Unexpected Journey)

Bilbo: I can’t believe you would do this, Gandalf! I thought I made it perfectly clear when I said “NO, I don’t want to go on any adventures!” But then you went behind my back and invited some dwarves over when I clearly didn’t want any guests!

Gandalf: But Bilbo….

Bilbo: I’ve had enough of your adventure crap!

Gandalf: And I’ve had enough of you being a homebody.

Bilbo: GAH!!!!

(music starts)

Dammit Gandalf, what were you thinking? I didn’t ask for this evening!
Dammit, Gandalf, and guess what? There’s dwarves everywhere messing up my house!
They have taken all the food and drank all my wine, and I’m not going to mention what they did to the toilet!
You weren’t thinking when you told them to come to my house
And now I don’t know how I’m going to clean up this mess!

Dammit, Gandalf, I can’t believe you, you’re nothing but a guy who goes around causing trouble!
Dammit, Gandalf! And believe it or not, I’m going to call my friends and have them kick the dwarves out!
I’m a Baggins of Bag End, or have you forgot, and I can’t just drop everything for your silly little adventure
Dammit Gandalf, you are such a jerk; I was doing just fine until you walked back into my life!

Kili: Hey Bilbo, we’re washing your dishes
Fili: And we’re cleaning up your kitchen
Kili: We even unclogged your toilet
Fili: You think we’re destroying your house? Don’t be so uptight!
Dwarves: You think we’re going to blunt the knives, and you think we’re going to bend the forks? You think we’re going to smash the bottles and you think we’re going to burn the corks? Chip the glasses and crack the plates? That’s what Bilbo Baggins hates!

Bilbo: Dammit Gandalf, what is wrong with you? I bet you’re senile, that’s true!
Dammit Gandalf, it’s no surprise, another dwarf will walk through the door and you’ll set me up with him!

Hobbits: There he is, the great disturber of the Peace of the Shire! We are Hobbits, we live our lives the way they’re supposed to be. We don’t care for the outside world and we don’t care about adventures; we just want to grow our plants and to be left alone!

Bilbo: Dammit Gandalf, what were you thinking? I didn’t ask for this evening!
Dammit Gandalf, what is wrong with you? I bet you’re senile, that’s true!
Dammit Gandalf!

Hobbits: UUUGGGHHH! UUUGGGHHH!

Bilbo: Dammit Gandalf!

Hobbits: UUUGGGHHH! UUUGGGHHH!

Bilbo: Dammit Gandalf!

Hobbits: UUUGGGHHH! UUUGGGHHH!

Bilbo: Dammit Gandalf!

Hobbits: UUUGGGHHH! UUUGGGHHH!

Bilbo: Dammit Gandalf!

Hobbits: UUUGGGHHH! UUUGGGHHH!

(A knock is heard at the door. Music shuts off)

Gandalf: He is here.

What if I was in the high school marching band? (StoryADay Post)

Kansas State University Marching Band marching...

I often wondered “what if I had chosen the high school marching band over what I had done in high school”. I had played the clarinet in elementary school and sang in the choir in the eighth grade. I had tried out for the flag team during my freshman year of high school.

Well, I should have gone with my first choice instead of turning down what would have been an opportune moment.

Had I stayed on the flag team, I would have accomplished more than I did.

First, I would have had a different set of friends, friends who would have pushed me to better myself instead of leaving me by myself. These friends would have broken down the walls that I have set up around myself and prevented me from slipping back into my own make-believe world (which I was notorious for doing whenever I wasn’t among people).

In addition, I would have enjoyed going to the football games and performing there. I would have stayed in the marching band for the next four years and continue to perform in parades and such instead of staying home in my own world.

Ok, that’s enough of that. I won’t bother talking about what-ifs that never happened. On the other hand, if I could go back in time and tell myself to join the high school marching band, I would do that in a heartbeat.
