There's edgier plots in that David the Gnome Your Hobbit-hole heroes can't handle my throne [Verse 2: J.R.R. Tolkien] Kings, queens, dragons, dwarves Horses, fortresses, magic and swords You Hob-bit my whole sh**, you uninspired hack You want a war, George? Welcome to Shire-raq!

Oh, we all know the world is full of chance and anarchy So yes, it's true-to-life for characters to die randomly But news flash, the genre's called fantasy It's meant to be unrealistic, you myopic manatee [Verse 3: George R.R.

Martin] Man, your fat jokes are worse than your pipe smoke My show's the hottest thing on H-B-O! I'm rock and roll, you're a nerdy little nebbish And I may be dirty, but you got a hairy foot fetish, dawg Even the names of your characters s** You got Boffers and Bofurs and Brandybucks I got a second breakfast for all them goofy f**s Lift up my gut and tea-Baggins my nuts [Verse 6: J.R.R. Tolkien] C. S. Lewis and I were just discussing How you and Jon Snow... both know nothing!
