re: Byrcha Hobbit

(sung to this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AGF5ROpjRAU)



In a Hobbit Hole
In the land of the Shire
Lived a little Hobbit
That the kin admired
She could play her music
If she was kept fed
And she wore a giant hat
Sitting on her head oh
Byrcha
Queen of Hobbits Hobbit
Is only three feet tall
Byrcha
Queen of Hobbits
Byrcha is the leader of us all

Now Byrcha is the happiest
Hobbit we know,
When you give her a pie
She's gonna eat it slow
She has a pie vault
Deep beneath her home
She likes to go down in it
And be left alone.



But One day Byrcha
was asked to go.
And fetch some pies
from the vault below.
We waited all night
till the rooster crowed,
and where she took our pies to
we will never know oh
Byrcha,
Queen of Hobbits,
won’t you hear our call.
Byrcha,
Queen of Hobbits
won't you share the pie vault with us all

Well she ran from some wolves
Was terrified
Found and onion ring
And was wraithified
She smoked Pipe weed
Drank her ale
Played on Saturday
If she could raise bail oh

Byrcha,
Queen of Hobbits,
won't you share the pie vault with us all

Now back in her hole
When we found her out
She had eaten all the pies
Of this there was no doubt
Didn't seem to mind
If we'd beg or scream
She'd never share her berry
Or her coconut cream oh

Byrcha
Queen of Hobbits Hobbit
Is only three feet tall
Byrcha
Queen of Hobbits
Byrcha is the leader of us all

Byrcha
Queen of Hobbits Hobbit
Is only three feet tall
Byrcha
Queen of Hobbits
Byrcha is the leader of us all

re: Byrcha Hobbit

But do you have the abc or midi file for it? That is the question. I loved it! (Before I looked at the video I was imagining it to the music of Davy Crockett.)

re: Byrcha Hobbit

No midi file of it. I do not dabble in such things.

hahaha Byrcha, Byrcha Hobbit. King of the Rohan frontier.

That's 'Byrcha, Queen of the pie frontier' to you. As if you weren't in enough trouble already.

I always wanted to do this, but it would have to be done from scratch. Great lyrics, Aedon.

I love it!

Who's gonna transcribe this one? It's way out of my league.

Aedon, where in the world did you dig this up?

I used to listen to this little ditty years ago and sing it to bother my wife.

I always wondered why we don't already have an abc of this.
