42. Legolas Greenleaf

Author’s note:

*******

Ah, look at all the frightened Hobbits
Ah, look at all the frightened Hobbits

Legolas Greenleaf picks up his bow
and arrows in the cave to defend
All of his friends
Waits for a good shot, hand on the string
that he pulls with his deadly Elf grace
He’ll not lose face

All the frightened Hobbits
They soon will find courage
All the frightened Hobbits
For honor is their pledge

Gandalf the Wizard, wielding his staff
with intent to dispose of the foe
He did not know
It was a Balrog that he would fight
In the night of the caverns so deep
He’ll his friends keep

All the frightened Hobbits
They soon will find courage
All the frightened Hobbits
For honor is their pledge

Ah, look at all the frightened Hobbits
Ah, look at all the frightened Hobbits

Legolas Greenleaf shot all his shafts
and drew knife to go into the fray
Yearning to slay
Gandalf the Wizard cried to them all
Not to fall, but to flee from the cave
He did them save

All the frightened Hobbits
They soon will find courage
All the frightened Hobbits
For honor is their pledge
