1. Axe and Bow

With apologies to Irving Berlin, Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers and anyone
else, may I present Legolas, Gimli and the foxtrot. Music maestro please:


Aman, I’m in Aman,
And fair Elvenhome’s a joy I can forego,
Let the seabirds call – I just don’t want to know
When we’re out together wielding axe and bow.

Aman, I’m in Aman,
And your beard out-gleams the sunset’s golden glow
And the springs of Middle-earth still overflow
When we’re out together wielding axe and bow.

Oh I love to stroke a tree trunk,
Feel the branches as they grow,
But they don’t fill my hand as much
As wielding axe and bow.

Oh I love to go out singing
In the starry silver glow
But it doesn’t thrill my soul as much
As wielding axe and bow.

Hunt with me! I’ll shoot my arrows for you
Your axe, sturdy and true,
Will carry me through to
Aman, I’m in Aman
And fair Elvenhome’s a joy I can forego
Let the seabirds call – I just don’t want to know
When we’re out together wielding axe and bow.
