That is awesome! [In reply to] Can't Post


As the Elves and Men besiege the Lonely Mountain, Thorin and his companions sing a song (as Tolkien remarks, very similar to the one sung in Bag End). This raises the party's spirits considerably, but Bilbo remains gloomy.

The first few verses run like this ...

Under the Mountain dark and tall
The King has come unto his hall!
His foe is dead, the Worm of Dread,
And ever so his foes shall fall.

The sword is sharp, the spear is long,
The arrow swift, the Gate is strong;
The heart is bold that looks on gold;
The dwarves no more shall suffer wrong.

Now, having been through a lot, I could really see this new version playing out - as a quiet moment on the verge of the BOFA.

I could see it being a scene like the one in TTT where Théoden recites the horse and the rider poem, they could show all the armies preparing for war while Thorin and co remain locked inside the mountain waiting it out then later as Shagrat said have it blare out triumphantly when they burst from Erebor to save the day!
