3. I'll Be King by Yuletide

I’ll be King by Yuletide—
Hold that crown for me.
Trust me, folk,
I’ll doff my cloak
And wake that dead old Tree.

Loëndë will find me
With my Arwen, Queen.
I’ll be King by Yuletide
If Andúril is keen…
If Andúril is keen!


Original text:
I'll be home for Christmas,
You can plan on me.
Please have snow
And mistletoe
And presents on the tree.

Christmas Eve will find me
Where the lovelight gleams.
I'll be home for Christmas,
If only in my dreams...
If only in my dreams!
