Tom Save the Ring
(to the tune of God Save the King)

Tom save our precious Ring,
Captured by barrow-things,
Tom save the Ring!
He'll come victorious,
Happy and glorious,
With singing over us,
Tom sav'd the Ring!

Our call is "Tom arise,
Scatter our enemies,
And make them fall.
Confound their willow-twigs,
Frustrate their foggy tricks!"
On these our hopes we fix;
Tom'll save the Ring!

Those choicest gifts in store
On barrow-grass he pour'd;
Long has he lived!
May he defend from claws
And ever give us cause
To sing without a pause:
Tom save'd the Ring!

- Primula

Old Gray Willow
(to the tune of The Old Gray Mare)

Old Grey Willow
Tree ain't what he used to be
Ain't what he used to be,
Ain't what he used to be
Old Grey Willow
Tree ain't what he used to be
Many long years ago.

Many long years ago,
Many long years ago,
Old Grey Willow
Tree ain't what he used to be
Many long years ago.

Old Grey Willow
Tree sorely whupped by Bombadil,
Sorely whupped by Bombadil,
Sorely whupped by Bombadil
Old Grey Willow
Tree Sorely whupped by Bombadil
Many long years ago.

Many long years ago,
Many long years ago,
Old Grey Willow
Tree Sorely whupped by Bombadil
Many long years ago.
