    This a two CD set covering the first half of my career, full of my most popular tracks from my first 5 CDs which are all out of print. It has 40 tracks, including "Stealing Like A Hobbit", "Peter Parker", "Insane And The Brain", "Kenny Was A Kid From South Park", "House Party At Arkham Asylum", "It's A Fanboy Christmas", and many more that made Dr. Demento's Funny Five countdowns. It also contains 2 songs which I remade especially for this collection, "Fanboy" & "Gowron Said Knock You Out", and three live performance tracks from MarsCon. It's over 2 1/2 hours of music, an excellent introduction to the comedy music career of the great Luke Ski.

    Note: This collection actually was released on May 21st, 2010, but I listed it here as March 4th, 2006 because that's where this collection fits in my career chronologically (the date when the live tracks were performed).

about

A parody of "Cleaning Out My Closet" by Eminem , about the book/film trilogy "The Lord Of The Rings".

lyrics

(Spoken, like beginning of "Lose Yourself":)
Look… If you had… One Ring… To find them…
One ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them…
Would you rule them all?… Or go see "Harry Potter" instead?

(Closet Verse 1)
Have you ever been angered while sent on a dangerous quest?
I have, 'cause of this ring hangin' on a chain on my chest.
Saturday, was sent on my way, Gandalf the Grey
Said get away, to the fires of Mount Doom, no delay.
All this medieval upheaval has led to evil retrieval.
Hid from Souron the moron, a weasel once known as Smeagol.
Running from Uruk-hai and Wraiths, by now you all know the story,
With Saruman in Isengard, and his Play Doh Orc factory.
Gory! Men, elves, and dwarfs, listen to them yell and them shout.
Now we're the Fellowship, but they'll never mellow me out.
Make no mistake. It's prob'bly too much for you to take,
Ain't it Gollum? I'm-a show you I'm a hard Hobbit to break!

(Closet Chorus 1)
I'm sorry Gollum.
I never meant to hurt you,
But you can kiss that ring bye-bye,
'Cause tonight, I'm stealing like a Hobbit.
One more time, I said
I'm sorry Gollum.
I never meant to hurt you,
But you can kiss that ring bye-bye,
'Cause tonight, I'm stealing like a Hobbit.
Ha!

(Closet Verse 2)
The whole survival of everyone in Middle Earth's the burden I'm Tolkien.
You think it's easy? What kind of pipe-weed you smokin'?
Man, I'm not jokin'. I'll take you back a year or sixty,
Before I ever had a multi-disc extend-DVD.
You were a creature feature, live to rant and rave in a cave.
My Baggins Uncle snatched the ring you love and crave, he's so brave,
Then he split. Now he's retired, and as he kissed me goodbye,
Dropped the ring, and stuck me starin' at that big evil eye.
I'm going crazy, ever since I started leaving the Shire.
Because of this stupid ring, the forests were set on fire.
'n all the men again will die some more all for Gondor in Boromir's war,
But he's only human. He went mad enough for Mordor to score.
What he did was stupid, a dumb deadly scam.
But the smartest thing I did was take off on my own, 'cept for Sam.
'Cause he'd-a killed us, they all would have just gone nuts you see?
It's our quest, just me and Sam, this Goonie's good 'nuff for me!

(Closet Chorus 2)
I'm sorry Gollum.
I never meant to hurt you,
But you can kiss that ring bye-bye,
'Cause tonight, I'm stealing like a Hobbit.
One more time, I said
I'm sorry Gollum.
I never meant to hurt you,
But you can kiss that ring bye-bye,
'Cause tonight, I'm stealing like a Hobbit.
Huh!

(Stan Verse 2.5)
(Spoken, as Samwise Gangee, like letter readings from "Stan")
Dear Mr. Frodo, just writing you this letter while you were nappin'.
It's been a long tale since our furry feet have got to steppin'.
You know that series of books that were later made into some movies?
About a little guy who went on a mission against evil? Man it was groovy!
He had this thing that would make him invisible whenever he'd wanta?
And an old wizard mentor, you know, that kid, Harry Potter?
That's kinda how this is. They'll sing songs about us across the land.
Just you and me, hit me back, your biggest fan, this is Sam.

(Stan Chorus 2.5)
(Sung as Arwen, female vocalist)
The elves gone home, I'm wondering why…
I left Rivendell at all.
The undying lands are where I'm living…
So I'll be immortal.
I think of my lost love, who'll be king one day,
When I see my pendant's gone.
It reminds me,
That the road goes ever on and on…

(Closet Verse 3)
Now I would never have believed all that's gone down on this mission.
You don't need a magician to see all the facts in this fiction.
Aragorn and Arwen are kissin', while Merry and Pippin
Are hitchin' rides on a treetop. Sam's dissin' you with suspicion, hissin'.
I really gotta pee, can we please have intermission? But no,
We watch you go fishin', wishin' for plot exposition.
This whole time I told Samwise that I pity you, "So sad ain't he?"
Now I obsess, and I regress. I'm getting slim and so shady! Save me!
Maybe the reason the ring's turning me into you,
'So with my actin' Peter Jackson wins an Oscar or two?
But guess what? Ten thousand Orcs versus some dorks in a castle,
You better call some elves to help you reinforce in this battle.
And Legolas is so slick now, such an excellent smelter.
Like if Tony Hawk was starring in "The Legend Of Zelda". (thwip!-Gaaahh!)
Keepin' score with the dwarf, Gimli has tossed in his brawn.
Look east at dawn, the Riders killed tons of Orcs on the lawn.
Can't believe Bilbo left me to go on this horrible trek!
You selfish peck! I hope you're eaten by an ogre named Shrek!
Will I prevail and survive, or will some spider get me?
I don't know, I haven't read, through book two and book three!

(Closet Chorus 3)
I'm sorry Gollum.
I never meant to hurt you,
But you can kiss that ring bye-bye,
'Cause tonight, I'm stealing like a Hobbit.
One more time,…

(Spoken bit: Gollum attacks Frodo, takes ring back)

…I said, I'm sorry Gollum.

Gollum: Philthy little thieves!

I never meant to hurt you,

Gollum: It's ours and we wants it! (Gollum grunts as he tries to take the ring)

But you can kiss that-

Frodo: Hey! Gollum! Get off me, man! Hey! Hey, give that back!

Gollum: Aaah!!! I gots the precious!!! I gots it!

(Lose Chorus 3.5)
(As Gollum)
You gotta rule them all with the precious, the precious, the precious,
You better never lets it go!
You only gets one ring, the thing that you've gots to know,
This Gollum looney me wants the precious precious!
You better rule them all with the precious, the precious, the precious,
You better never lets it go!
You only gets one ring, the thing that you've gots to know,
This Gollum looney me wants the precious precious!
You better…

(Spoken bit, Frodo takes the ring back, Gollum screams and moans as song fades out)

Frodo: Gimmie that thing back! It's mine! Ha! Lets go.

Gollum: Noooo!!! The precious!!! You philthy little tricksy Hobbitsses!!! You stole the precious!!!
