I'm Merry Brandybuck

(sung to the tune of 'Singin' in the Rain)

I'm Meeeeeeeeeeeeeerry Brandybuck
Just Meeeeeeeeeeeeeerry Brandybuck
I'm a wonderful Hobbit
Just burstin' with pluck!

I looooooooooove to run around
I was chased outta town
I smoke quite a lot
I'm Merry Brandybuck

My cousin is a Fool
He's stuborn as a mule
But he's Pippin!
And I'm a Brandybuck!
- Peregrine

Merry Pippin
sung to the tune of " Sunrise, sunset"

Is this the hobbit Pippin?
Is that Merry over there?

I don't remember growing shorter
It's not fair

When did he grow to be a giant?
When did he grow to be this tall?

Wasn't it yesterday
When they were small?

Merry, Pippin
Merry, Pippin
Swiftly growing tall
Seedlings turn overnight to flowers
Even as we stay small

Merry, Pippin
Merry, Pippin
Swiftly grows their hair
HOw thick their hair curls
They truly make a hairry pair

What words of teasing can I give them?
How can I help to change their ways?

Now they will always be taller
Day by day

They look so natural being taller

But its not how it should be
I just hope they don't grow taller than me

- Mim

Can I Have a Mushroom Please?
To the tune of "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" from The Lion King

*Merry and Pippin step up to their Microphones....Farmer Maggot sees their mischief and grabs his own mic...*

Merry: "Can I have a mushroom please?
They just look so good!
Just give me one....or 2 or 3
I'm begging farmer please!"

Pippin: "Last time I tried to steal
Your dogs hunted me.
I've got scars, please lend me something
at least I asked this time!"

Farmer Maggot: "NO, Pippin! get out of here!
I don't want to see your face
This food is mine, if you come back you'll die!
My dogs will chase you down!"

Pipin: "Come, Merry, Let's leave this place
On the way we'll eat
We'll run fast, so we don't lose our legs
From those nasty dogs!"

Farmer Maggot: "I heard that!
you get back here!
Don't you run from me!
You eat my 'shrooms and you will pay!
Fang hasn't eaten for a week!"

*Merry drops his microphone and yells at Pippin* "RUN!" *and with they they both bolt for the door....Farmer Maggot follows*
- Tori*Took

Flotsam, Jetsam
(to the tune of Frere Jacques)

Merry, Pippin,
Merry, Pippin,
Here they are
From afar.
Watching Orthanc get treed,
Found a cask of pipeweed,
Very fresh,
Low on tar.

Glad of pipe and
Glad of plate they
Found it rare,
Great to share -
When they were a sore sight,
Found it set the score right
With the dwarf,
Wreathed the air.

- Primula

Meriadoc the Magnificent
Strawberry Fields Forever, by the Beatles

Let me get my sword, ’cause I’m riding to Pelennor Fields.
This battle is real and we’re hopelessly outnumbered
Pelennor Fields forever.

Living was easy with eyes closed, tagging a ride all the way from Bree.
It’s getting hard to view the sky through all this smoke; it makes it very
hard to see.

Let me get my shield, ’cause I’m riding to Pelennor Fields.
This battle is real and the orcs are as thick as buttermilk
Pelennor Fields forever.

I’d rather be somewhere smoking pipeweed, I’m not as short as I once was.
That is, more than Pip, but you know, not as much as Aragorn, that is I think
I’m growing up

Let me get my helm, ’cause I’m riding to Pelennor Fields.
This battle is real and I won’t be left behind now!
Pelennor Fields forever.

Eòwyn, no Dernhelm, think it’s her, but you know I don’t know if it’s a dream
I think I know, I mean, I guess, perhaps and maybe, that is I think that
he’s a ’She’

Let me ride to war, ’cause I’m going to Pelennor Fields.
I shouldn’t be here, but I’ve got a witchking to hamstring...
Pelennor Fields forever.
Pelennor Fields forever.

Don't Give Up

tune: Don't Give Up, Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush

Frodo sings:
in this fair land we grew up strong
we were sheltered all along
I was taught to read, taught to dream
I never thought I could leave

no choice left or so it seems
I am a hobbit whose dreams have all deserted
I've sold my place, I've changed my name
I've got a treasure to lose

Sam, Merry, and Pippin chorus:
don't give up
'cos you have friends
don't give up
you're not beaten yet
don't give up
We know you can make it good

Frodo sings:
though I saw it all around
never thought the Shire could be affected
thought that we'd be the last to go
it is so strange the way things turn

In the basin I saw my home
the place that I was born, on the lakeside
as starlight broke, I saw the earth
the trees had burned down to the ground

Sam, Merry, and Pippin chorus:
don't give up
you still have us
don't give up
we don't need much of anything
don't give up
'cause somewhere there's a place
where we belong

rest your head
you worry too much
it's going to be alright
when times get rough
you can fall back on us
don't give up
please don't give up

Frodo sings:
'got to walk out of here
I must go to Mordor
going to stand on that ledge
in the fire's angry glow
whatever may come
and whatever may go
that lava's flowing
that lava's flowing

Went back home again
tried hard to settle down
for every hour, so many tears
so much pain no one sees

Sam, Merry, and Pippin chorus:
don't give up
'cause you have friends
don't give up
you're not the only one
don't give up
no reason to be ashamed
don't give up
you still have us
don't give up now
we're proud of who you are
don't give up
we know it's never really healed
don't give up
'cause we believe there's the a place
there's a place where we belong
