[Leonard Nimoy] The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins

In the middle of the earth in the land of Shire
Lives a brave little hobbit whom we all admire.
With his long wooden pipe,
Fuzzy, woolly toes,
He lives in a hobbit-hole and everybody knows him

Bilbo! Bilbo! Bilbo Baggins
He’s only three feet tall
Bilbo! Bilbo! Bilbo Baggins
The bravest little hobbit of them all

Now hobbits are peace-lovin‘ folks you know
They’re never in a hurry and they take things slow
They don’t like to travel away from home
They just like to eat and be left alone
But one day Bilbo was asked to go
On a big adventure to the caves below,
To help some dwarves get back their gold
That was stolen by a dragon in the days of old.

Bilbo! Bilbo! Bilbo Baggins
He’s only three feet tall

Bilbo! Bilbo! Bilbo Baggins
The bravest little hobbit of them all

Well he fought with the goblins!
He battled a troll!
He riddled with Gollum!
A magic ring he stole!
He was chased by wolves!
Lost in the forest!
Escaped in a barrel from the elf-king’s halls!

Bilbo! Bilbo! Bilbo Baggins
The bravest little hobbit of them all

Now he’s back in his hole in the land of Shire,
That brave little hobbit whom we all admire,
Just a-sittin‘ on a treasure of silver and gold
A-puffin‘ on his pipe in his hobbit-hole.

Bilbo! Bilbo! Bilbo Baggins
He’s only three feet tall
Bilbo! Bilbo! Bilbo Baggins
The bravest little hobbit of them all

The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins“ is a song composed by Charles Randolph Grean and performed by Leonard Nimoy, telling the story of Bilbo Baggins and his adventures in J. R. R. Tolkien’s novel The Hobbit. The recording originally appeared on Two Sides of Leonard Nimoy, the second of Nimoy’s albums on Dot Records. It was also released as a single (Dot Records Cat. #45-17028), backed with a „modern thought-image“ folk song called „Cotton Candy“. (Wikipedia)
