    Come all ye hobbets, there be a sight ye's have te see
    Far ayond ye Shire
    Past ye Breeland mire
    In yonder mounten peaks snowy an misty

    Walk there yon giants, well sizen a ye burrow
    Their nose be long
    their tusks be strong
    Their ears wide a might a thorough!

    Come all ye hobbets, tis here yon Oliphans be prancen
    But dids ye knew
    secret a me te you
    that yon Oliphans can go a dancen?

    Grand yonder patriarch, comes a speak te I
    "O a ye little folk,
    O a merry ye provoke,
    Plays ye tune fer me, and nay ye wonder why!"

    Here be well cold a snowen, how yon Oliphan stay warm?
    Wit a fluten toot
    an ye dancen foot
    shalls they go a dancen up a storm!

    Come all ye Oliphans, come dancen now wit me!
    Far ayond ye Shire
    There shall be nay ire
    A yonder mounten peaks festive an merry!

    Aren't they HUGE!! Great song about great animals, Miss Reavah!
  8. Rubysue Member

    Ya best be careful of standing too close and getting them monsters dancin' too jittery like, Miss Reavah. You could end up toe jam and the oliphaunt wondering where the music went!

    Good song and nice art work!

    That's a grand song, Miss Reavah!

    I don't hink I have ever seen shrews quite that big!

    I wonder if they have been feedin' after midnight!

    Oh, I don't think they're goats, Miss Tibba, look at the tusks on 'em! I'm pretty darn sure those are whopper size boar hogs. Betcha you could feed half the Shire on the bacon ya could carve off one of them.

    Oooh, you are right, Miss Rubysue! About the boar, at least, I am less sure about keeping half the Shire fed. *pats her belly happily*
