Springle-ring

on December 29, 2009

Springle-Ring
based on “Jingle Bells”

The Party Tree is lit
The wine is mighty strong
Bilbo’s giving us a speech
Let’s hope it’s not too long!
You know how he can get:
He’s liable to recite
Or spin a story of his past –
Let’s hope he won’t tonight!

O! Springle-ring, Springle-ring,
Springle-ring with me!
Bilbo’s paused amidst applause
So let’s assume we’re free
To
Springle-ring, Springle-ring,
– Springle-ring with me!
A cracker band! With bells in hand
We’ll dance a round or three.

The fireworks were grand
We’ve not had such in years
That dragon took my breath
But there was no time for tears
For supper then began
And the food it never failed
(I’ll ask Rosie for a dance –
No, I’ll just have another ale)

‘Eleventy-one years
Is far too short a time…’
If he ruins this night,
That would be a crime!
‘As well as you deserve’
Now, I wonder what that means
To one hundred forty-four of us
All gathered in this tent

Brandybucks and Tooks
Burrowses and Chubbs
Boffins and Bolgers
Goodbodies and Grubbs
Brockhouses and Proudfoots
And don’t forget Frodo
The Sackville-Bagginses as well – ?
Now where did Bilbo go??

O! Springle-ring, Springle-ring,
Springle-ring with me!
Bilbo’s paused amidst applause
So let’s assume we’re free
To
Springle-ring, Springle-ring,
– Springle-ring with me!
A cracker band! With bells in hand
We’ll dance a round or three.
