3. The Hobbit Bears a Burden

To the tune of "The Holly Bears a Crown".

****

Now the hobbit he bears a burden
The One Ring of gold
That to Sauron gave dominion
In days of old

And Gandalf the agèd wizard
The last hope did foresee
It's a race to Mt. Orodruin
In hope or folly.

Folly? Folly!

It's a race to Mt. Orodruin
In hope or folly.

Now the hobbit he bears a burden
Across the land green
From the Shire up to Imladris
By way of Bree

Four hobbits and Ranger
Crossed the country secretly
From the Shire up to Imladris
with Bill the Pony.

Folly? Folly!

From the Shire up to Imladris
with Bill the Pony.

Now the hobbit he bears a burden
A black path he'll go
And whither it leads us all
The Wise do not know

And Gandalf the agèd wizard
The last hope did foresee
It's a race to Mt. Orodruin
In hope or folly.

Folly? Folly!

It's a race to Mt. Orodruin
In hope or folly.

Now the hobbit he bears a burden
Weighted blood red
And there within the Sammath Naur
Fell Gollum from the ledge

And Sméagol destroyed the One Ring
Our savior Gollum-y
For the lord of fate in Arda's
a sense of irony

For the lord of fate in Arda's
A sense of irony.
