Coming Home - Ode to Pippin and Merry

At the end of "Return of the King",the hobbits are overjoyed to finally be going back to the Shire. Merry and Pippin could express their excitement by singing a song like this.


O! Late one night I went to join
A party at the inn.
The host said if I gave him gold
He'd surely count me in.

But I'm not one to carry gold,
For I'm a lowly soul
So I grabbed some paint and brushes and
I gave him yellow coal!

Oi! Bring on the thunder,
Bring on the rain,
Bring on the windy gale,
I'm coming home again.

Bring on the icy chill,
Bring on the snow,
Bring on the toughest yet,
At last I'm coming home!

O! The next day I woke to hear
A knocking at my door.
I thought, "Could it be neighbors, or
Could it be something more?"

And at the door there stood a man
Who was a little pale,
He said, "Sir, I'm not leaving 'til
You pay me for that ale."

Oi! Bring on the thunder,
Bring on the rain,
Bring on the windy gale,
I'm coming home again.

Bring on the icy chill,
Bring on the snow,
Bring on the toughest yet,
At last I'm coming home!
