Introduction

This song is based on "The Boxer" by Simon and Garfunkel.

The Hobbit

I am just a hobbit, but my story's often told
I would wander any distance for a pocketful of carrots, such are hobbitses
T'was just a jest, till we ran into Sam and Frodo
And then we joined the quest hmmmm....mmmm......

When I left my home in Tuckborough, I was no more than a lad
In the company of Merry.....
In the midst of Farmer Maggot's cropfields, runnin' scared
Laying low, seeking out the fertile places, where the juicy carrots grow
Looking for the places only we would know

Li la li... li la la la li la li
Li la li... li la la la li la li
La la la la li...

It was time for second breakfast, I was stopping for a snack, but I got no mushrooms.....
Just an mouldy apple thrown at me by Aragorn
I do declare, there were times when I was so hungry
I raided Merry's pack la la la ...

(Instrumental break)

Li la li... li la la la li la li
Li la li... li la la la li la li
La la la la li...

We were hanging out at Rivendell and wishing we were gone, goin' home
Where those horrible Black Riders aren't pursuin' us, leavin' us to go home

In the Council stood our cousin, and he said "I'll take the Ring
I will take it into Mordor" We heard him from the corner we were hiding in
So we cried out, "Hey! We're coming just the same
He is leaving, he is leaving, with Frodo we will remain
Yes, we will remain"........................
