Any Ring Goes - (sung to the tune of "Anyting Goes")

It would be pretentious to call this a poem; it's a filk. According to legend, the name came from a science fiction convention convention where a typo in the schedule listed "filk singing" instead of "folk singing." Since then, the word "filk" has refered to a science fiction or fantasy based song, usually a parody of or based on an existing one. This is one of my own. Feel free to sing along.

In Elder Days a touch of magic
Was looked on as something tragic
Now, Elbereth knows,
--Any Ring Goes!

Wizards too, like evil Sauron,
Are something to wage a war on
In epic prose,
--Any Ring Goes!

The world is flat today
And that's that today
And most elves today
Help themselves today
And those guys today
That writers prize today
Have lots of hair on their toes;

And tho' I'm not the Necromancer,
I'm certain that you'll answer
When Mount Doom blows,
--"Any Ring Goes!"
