The Lyrics

My tribute to Tolkien, LOTR, and hobbits. (I pronounce it Tole-Kine)If I'm wrong, then sue me.
I have a book,
Why don't you take a look,
It's by this guy, J.R. Tolkien.
In Middle-Earth,
I hope it's what it's worth,
I'll read it every day and night.

The set is down in Hobbiton,
That's deep inside the Shire.
Fills your minds with elvish rhymes,
I'm burning with desire.

It's filled with orcs and even trolls,
And dwarves who are not clean.
This little freak that's named Gollum,
It's cold and cruel and mean.
Later this will involve a ring.
Later talked by Tolkien.
So I'm reading "The Hobbit"
Reading "The Hobbit"

Bilbo Baggins,
A hobbit in the Shire,
Who's looking for an adventure.
Gandolf the Grey,
A wizard-that's his trade.
Believe me that guy's not a bore.

Bilbo comes across some trolls,
That chill him to the bone.
It's really tight when at sunrise,
Those trolls all turn to stone.

Pass Rohan and right past Gondor,
Into these little caves.
These dwarves and hobbits aren't that smart,
But boy, they sure are brave.
A treausure will come their way,
I hope they see the light.
So I'm reading "The Hobbit"
Reading "The Hobbit"

Next is "Lord of the Rings",
A real cool trilogy,
Or I'll just watch the film,
Expense is more than a mil.

They're filming "The Hobbit" this year,
With "King Kong" by it's side.
Peter Jackson and his old crew,
Should make it really nice.
I'll burn it off the internet,
But since it isn't out,
Guess I'm reading "The Hobbit"
Reading "The Hobbit"
Reading "The Hobbit"

Fairly funny, but your rhyming scheme could use some adjustments

Double on that. And its "Gandalf"
