35. Bucklebury Girls

Author’s note:
As well as the usual disclaimer, I must note that the form of this is based on based on “California Girls,” by the Beach Boys. Sung by Meriadoc, thinking about the girl-Hobbits around the Shire.


Well Waymoot girls are cute
I really like those braids they wear
And the Sarn Ford girls with the way they bake
They feed me up when I’m down there

Old Farmer Maggot’s daughters have been known to dance all night
And the Rushey girls with their furry feet
They make the best ale – out of sight

I wish they all could be Bucklebury
I wish they all could be Bucklebury
I wish they all could be Bucklebury girls

The Buckland has its river
And the girls go down to bathe
I see them in the water in their skirted suits
And when they look up they all wave

I’ve been out in the world of Men
And I’ve seen all of their girls
Yeah, but I was dyin’ to get back to the Shire
Back to the shortest girls in the world

I wish they all could be Bucklebury
I wish they all could be Bucklebury
I wish they all could be Bucklebury girls
