The Misty Mountains

Soon I will be sitting in a movie theater singing along to this song.

Far over the misty mountains cold
In dungeons deep and caverns old
We must away, ere break of day
To seek the pale enchanted gold

The dwarves of yore made mighty spells
While hammers fell like ringing bells
In places deep, where dark things sleep
In hollow halls beneath the fells

For ancient king and elvish lord
There many a gleaming golden hoard
They shaped and wrought, and light they caught
To hide in gems on hilt of sword

On silver necklaces they strung
The flowering stars, on crowns they hung
The dragon fire, in twisted wire
They meshed the light of moon and sun

Far over the misty mountains cold
In dungeons deep and caverns old
We must away, ere break of day
To claim our long-forgotten gold

Goblets they carved their for themselves
And harps of gold; where no man delves
There lay they long, and many a song
Was sung unheard by men and elves

The pines were roaring on the height
The winds were moaning in the night
The fires were red, it flaming spread
The trees like torches blazed with light

 The bells were ringing in the dale
And men looked up with faces pale
The dragon's ire more fierce than fire
Laid low their towers and houses frail

The mountains smoked beneath the moon
The dwarves, they heard the tramp of doom
They fled their hall to dying fall
Beneath his feet, beneath the moon

Far over the misty mountains grim
To dungeons deep and caverns grim
We must away, ere break of day
To win our harps and gold from him!
