Formerly 'Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire'

1. The One Ring GLowing by an Open Fire

Formerly "Chestnuts Roasting by an Open Fire"

The One ring glowing by an open fire…
Nasguls nipping at your toes
Terrifying screams, stating things are so dire
And Hobbits dressed up in travel clothes

Everybody knows that Sauron wants that damn One ring…
That's why we're here, in this dreadful plight
Then there's Strider, with his pipe all aglow…
We'll find it hard to sleep tonight

We know that Gandalf's on his way
But he's late and in Bree we can no longer stay
'Cause ev'ry moment here we all might die
So with the Ranger we'll leave town and fly

And so I'm offering this simple phrase
To the wizard who really missed his cue,
Although it's been said many times, many ways
"Get your ass in gear you shrew…."
