(©music by Maury Laws, lyrics adapted by Jules Bass 1977)

O! What are you doing,
And where are you goin'?
Your ponies need shoein'!
The river is flowin'!
O! tra-la-la-lally
here down in the valley
ha! ha!

O! Where are you goin'
With beards all a-waggin'?
No knowin', no knowin'
What brings Mister Baggins,
And Balin and Dwalin
in June in the valley
ha! ha!

O! Will you be satyin',
Or will you be flyin'?
Your ponies are strayin'!
The daylight is dyin'!

Condensed version of Tolkien's verse.
