The Rings of Power and The Third Age - Prologue

 

 

I amar prestar aen. (ee amar prestar ein)

The arse has fallen out of the world

Translation: The world has changed.

       

 

Han mathon ne nen. (han mathon ne nen)

I've been feeling up the water joey

Translation: I feel it in the water

         

 

Han mathon ne chae. (han mathon ne hai)

The earth closet is absolutely full of it

 

Translation: I feel it in the earth

         

A han nostron ned wilith. (ahan nothon ne gwilith)

A bit of sniff and giggle is fun

Translation: I smell it in the air.

       

 

       

Like an old maid's pram

 

 

Translation: Much that once was, is lost.



 

The year dot was too long ago

        

        

Translation: For none now live who remember it.

The fat was really in the fire with the making of those bloody rings!

        

Translation: It began with the forging of the great rings.

 

        

Three were given to the Fairies:

Who haven't fallen off their perches yet, have got eyes in the back of their

heads, and don't have faces as ugly as a mud fence in a rain storm.         

       

 Translation: Three were given to the Elves: Immortal,wisest and fairest of all beings.

Galadriel with Nenya, the Ring of AdamantGaladriel with Nenya, the Ring of Adamant

 

Seven to the bloody midget(dwarf) lords:


 

Who have got short arms and long pockets and have their mountains pegged

out.

 

Translation: Seven to the Dwarf Lords: Great miners and craftsmen of the mountain halls.

        


 

And nine, nine rings were gifted to the race of men (the flaming galahs) who,

above all else, desire the lurks and perks that went with them and are always

in for one's chop.

          

Translation: And nine, nine rings were gifted to the race of men,

who above all else desire power.

They all had a few roos loose in the top paddock mate.

         

For if brains were electricity then that definitely makes them all a walking

blackout..because the bloody Dark Lord Sauron has now got them by the

short and curlies because he made a ring for himself!

....And that was the icing on the cake, for his ring gazumped the other ones

so he could really put the fangs in! As mad as a cut snake was he, but his

mad scheme worked. He put in the dingo act and trounced the lot of them.

          

        

Translation: For within these rings was bound the strength

and the will to govern each race. But they were, all of them,

deceived; for another ring was made. In the land of Mordor, in the

fires of Mount Doom, the Dark Lord Sauron forged, in secret a

master ring. And into this ring he poured his cruelty, his malice and

his will to dominate all life.

 

           

          One ring to rule them all.

 

Well, they tried to put up an industrial, but he had already pulled a hat trick on them and they all kissed the dust.

 

Translation: But there were some who resisted. A last alliance of Men and Elves marched against the armies of Mordor.

         

 

Last AllianceLast Alliance



And on the slopes of Mount Doom they had a right old barney,
for the freedom of Middle-earth.

 

Translation: And on the slopes of Mount Doom they fought
for the freedom of Middle-earth.



The Melbourne Cup was near,
but the power of the Ring could not be undone.

 

Translation: Victory was near, but the power of the Ring could not be undone.

 

SauronSauron


(Sauron appears and wreaks havoc)

(Sauron runs around like a mad woman's custard, look out he's about to do his block, here's froth and bubble)

Elf: Out of the way everyone! Sauron's gone berko!!!!!!!

 

Translation: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGHHHH!
 

In two shakes of a lambs tail, Isildur (who normally couldn't get a kick in a stampede) a real chip off the old block where the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, showing more toe than a Roman Sandal, put his hands on his father's toolbox

Translation:It was in this moment, when all hope had faded,
that Isildur, son of the King, took up his father's sword.



Adlib:"Get away from me you right poofter or I'll stick your bum on the barbie!"
(Well the little git cut off Sauron's ring finger...Ouch That Hurt!
You shoulda seen Sauron..He was madder than a Baptist in a brothel, but then he disappeared as quick as a robber's dog!)

Translation: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGHHHH!


Sauron had one foot in the grave and the other on a banana skin.
What a rip snorter!

Translation: Sauron, the enemy of the free peoples of Middle-earth,
was defeated.

 

Isildur took one Captain Cook at the ring and decided to pinch it for himself since Men are a bit on the dodgy side. The ring was even more dodgy and gave Isildur a deadset uppercut and Isildur carked it.

Translation: The Ring passed to Isildur, who had this one chance to destroy evil forever, but the hearts of men are easily corrupted. And the ring of power has a will of its own. It betrayed Isildur, to his death.

 

And everything became as clear as mud because way back when JC played full back for the Arabs, the ***able ring went down the gurgler.

Translation: And some things that should not have been forgotten,
were lost. History became legend, legend became myth, and for two-and-a-half thousand years, the Ring passed out of all knowledge.


After it rained bikini clad women, and getting washed down the gutter with a truck driver, it buggered up a new chum.

Translation: Until, when chance came, it ensnared a new bearer.

 

You old B%,$#*&D

Translation: (My precious...)

Popular as a mangy dog, and as useful as pockets on a singlet, Gollum the bunyip took off like a frog in a sock into the Misty Mountains rubbing his ring with glee

Translation: The ring came to the creature Gollum, who took it
deep into the tunnels of the Misty mountains.

And there it was so hungry it chased the horse and ate the rider

Translation: And there, it consumed him.

How's them apples? It's me old B&*%,$@D

Translation: (It came to me, my own, my precious...)

The ring made Gollum's life two yards faster than a trickel!
For 6000 months' of Sundays, it made Gollum the world's only living brain donor and twice as nasty to boot, by putting the fangs in him.
And no matter how many wobblies he chucked, the bloody thing would not go walkabout.

Translation: The ring brought to Gollum unnatural long life.
For five hundred years, it poisoned his mind.
And in the gloom of Gollum's cave, it waited.

 

Out in the scrub it started getting darker than the inside of a black dog's guts and things were about to go pear shaped. The ring jumped up like a roo's pecker and did the Harold Holt.

Translation: Darkness crept back in the forest of the world. Rumour grew of a shadow in the East, whispers of a nameless fear. And the ring of power perceived it's time had now come. It abandoned Gollum.

 

But then a spanner was put in the works

Translation: But something happened then, the ring did not intend.

It fell off the back of a truck

Translation: It was picked up by the most unlikely creature imaginable:

What you lose on the swings you make up on the roundabouts

Translation: (What's this?)

A short-arse, Bilbo Baggins of the Shire.(So short that he would have to stand on his head to put his foot in the stirrup!

Translation: A hobbit, Bilbo Baggins of the Shire.

A ring?

Translation:A ring?

Me old B$#%&*,D! Me old B@#$%,*D. Where's me bloody pressie? Bloody Baggins!

Translation: (Gollum's cries in the background).

Since the short-arse pooed in his own nest, it'll soon be raining soup and we'll be standing around with forks to catch it in...In other words ....we're absobloominlutely buggered!

Translation: For the time will soon come when hobbits will shape the fortunes of all.........

 



G'day Cobbers.....Whils't I'm busy writing up this 'ere FOTR script in Australian with some of me compatriots here....I thought it may be a good idea to add a glossary every now and then to help you better understand some of the Aussie terms used in these posts. Some of the more obscure words  will become more apparent in future posts. Or you can click on the link below for access to an Australian Dictionary!
