A Well-Dressed Hobbit


A well-dressed hobbit braids his toes
because it is the fashion oh!
A well-dressed hobbit braids his toes
to go down to the pub, y’know.

And then he puts on his best trews
because it is the fashion oh!
With his best trews and braided toes
to go down to the pub y’know.

He fastens up his braces tight
To make sure that his trews hang right
Braces tight, his best trews, braided toes
to go down to the pub y’know.

Next he fastens up his shirt
with buttons sewn by Gramma Gert
Shirt, braces tight, his best trews, and braided toes
to go down to the pub y’know.

Next he tops it with a vest–
which pulls real tight across his chest–
Vest, his shirt, braces tight, his best trews, and braided toes
to go down to the pub, y’know.

And in one pocket watch and chain
so he’ll know to come home again
Watch, vest, shirt, braces tight, his best trews and braided toes
to go down to the pub, y’know.

In the other pocket his pipe goes
to make the smoke rings that he blows,
Pipe, watch, vest, shirt, braces, his best trews and braided toes
to go down to the pub, y’know.

And with his pipe he has long leaf
’cause no tobacco leads to grief…
Long leaf, pipe, watch, vest, shirt, braces, his best trews and braided toes
to go down to the pub, y’know.

And over all he wears a coat
to make sure his couture is haute…
Coat, long leaf, pipe, watch, vest, shirt, braces, trews, braided toes
to go down to the pub, y’know.

And last he often adds a hat
so his hair stays nice and flat
Hat, coat, long leaf, pipe, watch, vest, shirt, braces, trews, braided toes
to go down to the pub, y’know.

In one hand he totes a mug
the better for his ale to glug…
Mug, hat, coat, long leaf, pipe, watch, vest, shirt, braces, trews and braided toes
to go down to the pub, y’know.

And finally his walking stick
to keep his footing on the brick
Stick, mug, hat, coat, long leaf, pipe, watch, vest, shirt, braces, trews and braided toes
to go down to the pub, y’know.
