The Hobbit: “Trudging through the Misty Mountains”

(Scene: As Bilbo and the Dwarves pass through the Misty Mountains in the middle of a fierce thunderstorm, Thorin tries to keep their spirits up. To get an idea of the music, follow this link….  Note that some of the lines may repeat unexpectedly.)

Dwarves:
Trudging through the Misty Mountains
In among the gushing fountains,
Heading off to face the dragon,
Planning still to fix his wagon
And conclude his awful reign,
Fearing there are orcs aplenty
(We can handle up to twenty!)
We hope that the great stone giants
Show, regarding us, compliance
And from squashing us refrain.

Thorin:
Wearily our steps we measure
In pursuit of ancient treasure.
How to use our strange ally? (looking at Bilbo)
Gandalf didn’t specify.
As we troll our Dwarvish chorus
We perceive the risks before us.
We’ll feel better by and by
When we’re somewhere warm and dry.

Bilbo:
As we cross these lands severe
I ask what I’m doing here.
Why did I consent to roam
With these Dwarves far from my home?
Fighting trolls and burglary
Simply aren’t my cup of tea.
Though some praise the mountain breeze,
It just makes me want to sneeze.

Chorus:
Wearily our steps we measure
In pursuit of ancient treasure.
We’ll feel better by and by
When we’re somewhere warm and dry.
We’ll feel better by and by
When we’re somewhere warm and dry.
