(©Improved Sound Limited 1973)

I'd like to film the tale
Of The Lord Of The Rings
And nothing is to help me
Except Gandalf's wizardry

I liked to smoke a pipe
Of Longbottom Leaf
While Frodo's in Torech Ungol
And I safely in my bed

Mr. Tolkien keeps riding
On his flying chair
To the distant corners of his realm
He buys a fresh strong chair
To get him everywhere
But then the journey is too short

Wish that someone put the tale
Into a comic strip
And nothing could be better
Than Harold Foster's pen

Barad-dūr the vast fortress
Could be a feast to him
Or Strider and Minas Tirith
Frodo is a hard nut to crack

Mr. Tolkien keeps riding
On his flying chair
To the distant corners of his realm
He buys a fresh strong chair
To get him everywhere
But then the journey is too short

Mr. Tolkien keeps riding
On his flying chair
To the distant corners of his realm
He buys a fresh strong chair
To get him everywhere
But then the journey is too short
But then the journey is too short
