A Hobbit Jig

Oh you can search far and wide
You can drink the whole ground dry
But you'll never find a beer so brown
As the one we drink in our home town...
You can keep your fancy ales!
You can drink them by the flagon!
But the only brew for the brave and truuuuuueee
comes from the Green Dragon!

My boys love Merry and Pippin's jig that they sing and dance in the Golden Hall in Rohan. They've watched and re-watched this scene while dancing on my bed.

They didn't quite have all the words straight, so they asked me to look them up for them.

I always loved the singing in Tolkien's books... such a huge part of British culture (I'm thinking of pubs and football games). Wish there had been more songs in the the films, but I still love them anyway.

My favorite is that scene where Pippen (i think) is singing a song for the steward of Gondor, while the son is riding into battle.
Any idea where i can find an MP3 or wav file of that?
