38. Drive My Cart

Author’s note:
As well as the usual disclaimer, I must note that this is based on “Drive My Car,” by John Lennon and Paul McCartney – sung by the Beatles.

*******

Asked her once for a hot cup of tea
She said, “Samwise, can’t you see
I’m trying to take all this hay to the shed
And you can be useful here instead.”

“Samwise you can drive my cart –
No, it’s not as fun as darts –
Samwise you can drive my cart
And you know I love you.”

I told Rosie that my pony was lame
And she said, “Samwise, I know your game.
Working for Baggins is all very well
But I can offer you something swell.”

“Samwise you can drive my cart –
No, it’s not as fun as darts –
Samwise you can drive my cart
And you know I love you.”
Clip clop, clip clop, yeah.

“Samwise you can drive my cart –
No, it’s not as fun as darts –
Samwise you can drive my cart
And you know I love you.”

I gave in then and I told her I’d go
And she said, “Listen Sam, you have something to know
I have no cart and I need to use yours
But I’ll help you out with your other chores.”

“Samwise you can drive my cart –
No, it’s not as fun as darts –
Samwise you can drive my cart
And you know I love you.”
Clip clop, clip clop, yeah.
Clip clop, clip clop, yeah.
Clip clop, clip clop, yeah.
