Shire Songbook  by Lindelea

This is one of a group of songs sung Shire-wide in pleasant weather, Spring through Autumn. (See "Fireside Songs" for those more suited to inclement weather.) Note the play on words, commonly found in hobbit lyrics. As you might recall, hobbits also enjoy singing two melodies against one another. Thus their music reflects so well the lightness of their hearts.

We're going on a picnic, a picnic, a picnic.
We're going on a picnic, to savour this beautiful day.

What shall we bring a-carrying, carrying, carrying?
What shall we bring a-carrying, on this lovely day?

O let us bring some (insert item), some (insert item), some (insert item)
O let us bring some (insert item), to savour this beautiful day!
