lyrics

We're the Race of Men
Conquer valleys and glens
We build huge towers in the sky.
We're strong and we're bold,
Though it be or it be cold
We'll fight everyone till we die.
Oh, we'll never give up the mountain
As long as hope remains
And you will never see
A race as important as we…

We're the race of Dwarves
In dark caverns we forge
And shape the ore that we mine.
We're stout with beards
But give us a beer,
And we'll drink to the gold that we find.
Oh, we'll never give up the mountain
As long as there's money to be made.
And you will never see,
A race as important as we….'re

We're the race of Elves
In forests we dwell
At one with earth and the sky.
We're the race first born
And our only concern
Is how close to our gardens you lie.
Oh, we'll never give up the mountain
At least until our time is done.
And you will never see,
A race as old as we….'re

We're the race of Ents
And we're what was meant
When they said there are shepherd's to trees.
We've been stuffy and slow
Since our women left home
And many have fallen to sleep.
But we'll never give up the mountain.
Our trees are there to defend.
And you will never see
A race as old as the trees…

I am Tom Bombadill
Can't ever stand still
There's too many Creatures to see.
I've many songs to sing
And a wife in the stream
Whistle a diddle-diddle to call me.
Oh I'll never give up the mountain.
Or say I'm the oldest alive.
For you'll probably see
A hobbit in a tree…
And it won't even matter [whistle] … how high!
