"Down, down to Goblin Town" in TH! Can't Post

Hey guys. I just watched the EE scenes from Goblin Town and was surprised. First of all I liked the way that Bofur, Oin and Nori got a chance to stand out more. Obviously the EE of AUJ gives many characters their own moments. I like tha very much!!

But also because there's a variation of the "Down, down to Goblin Town" song. Best known from it's use in the animated movie. Why is it so important to make a new topic about it? Well perhaps one or two will remember my thread about this song. More than a year ago I asked if you think this song will be in the movie or not (The original topic: "Down, down to Goblin Town" In TH?). Most of you were against it because it would be too comic. Well... after seeing the movie I found the whole Goblin Towen sequence a little too comic and the song would have been perfect. But it wasn't in. But ironically it is now. At least in the EE. I won't post the link but I don't see a problem in writing down the lyrics.

ORIGINAL TOLKIEN
Clap! Snap! the black crack!
Grip, grap! Pinch, nab!
And down down to Goblin-town
You go, my lad!

Clash, crash! Crush, smash!
Hammer and tongs! Knocker and gongs!
Pound, pound, far underground!
Ho, ho, my lad!

Swish, smack! Whip crack!
Batter and beat! Yammer and bleat!
Work, work! Nor dare to shirk,
While Goblins quaff, and Goblins laugh,
Round and round far underground
Below, my lad!

ANIMATED MOVIE
Crush, smack! Whip crack!
Smash, grab! Pinch, nab!
You go, my lad!
Ho, ho! my lad!

The black crack! the back crack!
The black crack! the back crack!
Down down to Goblin-town
Down down to Goblin-town
Down down to Goblin-town
You go, my lad!
Ho, ho! my lad!

Goblins quaff, and Goblins beat
Goblins laugh, and Goblins bleat
Batter, jabber, whip, and taver hoooooo!
Below, my lad!
Ho, ho! my lad!

The black crack! the back crack!
The black crack! the back crack!
Down down to Goblin-town
Down down to Goblin-town

You go, my lad!
Ho, ho! my lad!

AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY
I feel a song... coming on.

Clap, snap! The black crack!
Grib, grab, pinch and nab! Better and beat
Milk'em, stammer and squeak.

Pound, pound, far underground.
Down, down, down in Goblin-town
chorus: Down, down, down in Goblin-town

With a shwish and a smack,
and a whip and crack.
Everybody talks when they're on my rack

Pound, pound, far underground.
Down, down, down to Goblin-town
chorus: Down, down, down in Goblin-town

Hammer and torch,
get out your knockers and gongs!
You won't last long on the end of my prongs!

Clish, clash, crush and smash,
bang, break, shiver and shake.
You can yell it and yelp but there ain't no help

Pound, pound, far underground.
Down, down, down in Goblin-town
Yeah!

After one year it's funny to look back at questions we did ask before we know what the film will be like.
