Shire Songbook  by Lindelea

Courting Song

This is a traditional "teasing song" sung in the Shire, usually by younger brothers of a hobbit who is "walking out" with a lass.

O where are you going this fine day?
Singing hey, my laddie, laddie ho!
That's for me to know and none to say,
Singing ho, my laddie hey!

Took a look at him, and I am betting
That come next Spring there will be a wedding,
Come and pluck the goose for the feather bedding,
Singing hey, my laddie ho!
