Early in the month of May ...
A long time ago
The moon was hanging full again ...
I was on the road
Headed for an unknown wood,
Talking down my fright
I swear, I saw an unknown face ...
Pass ... within ... the shadows ...

Forest green ... light ... shimmering ...
Resolution filled my heart ... Faith showed me the way.

Little did I know back then,
How I'd miss the comforts of home
Danger paved the road ahead,
And chilled me to the bone
But in the darkest halls I found
A greater strength in need
And as I travel through this world,
I remember ... a friend ... to me ...

Shining eyes ... untouched by all time ...
Oh, ho! Tom Bombadil ... Tom Bombadillo!

Oh, Tom Bombadil, won't you come on up the hill
And show me that your table is full of green
How many days can we lie here in the shade
And dream on, happily ... how many days?

Oh, Tom Bombadil ... Tom Bombadillo
Master of the wooded hill ... water, reed, and willow
Through a pool, deep and clear ... harken now and hear me
Come, Tom Bombadil ... for ... my need ... is near me ...

Sauron:
Your face is where my mark is ... your time draws ever near ...
I'll search until the darkness uncovers the Ring you bear

Frodo:
All my days have found their meaning ... but I can't seem to understand
Why all this evil that spreads throughout the world has fallen ... into my hands ...
I believe ... I shall see ... the end.

Oh, Tom Bombadil, won't you come on up the hill
And show me that your table is full of green
How many days can we lie here in the shade
And dream on, happily ... how many days?

Oh, Tom Bombadil ... Tom Bombadillo
Master of the wooded hill ... water, reed, and willow
Through a pool, deep and clear ... harken now and hear me
Come, Tom Bombadil ... Tom Bombadillo.
