This post has been due for a few weeks and dedicated to all my friends who are Star Trek lovers. It still hard to believe that we wont see Mr. Spock anymore. Yet, he has left a legacy and mountain of memories for us to cherish and enjoy. From his Vulcan greeting “Live Long and Prosper” to quotes like “It is curious how often you humans manage to obtain that which you do not want” or “Change is the essential process of all existence” or his simple “Fascinating”, he can never be forgotten. Just like his music. Yes, indeed, Leonard Nimoy had made quite a few music albums based on the Star Trek series. Of all the ones the one I liked most was “The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins”, thanks to a friend.

The first time I watched the “Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring” movie, my friend had been buzzing in my ear about this Bilbo Baggins song and I thought he was making fun. However a few days later he had indeed found a video of the song that he was singing to prove that he wasn’t making fun of me. Quite a cute melody.

Enjoy his performance to the song composed by Charles Randolh Grean for his 1968 album Two Sides of Leonard Nimoy. He even wears his Spock hairstyle. The song talks about the adventures of Bilbo Baggins in J. R. R. Tolkien’s novel The Hobbit.



And here is how the stars of the The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug movie read it:



Lyrics in English:

In the middle of the earth, in the land of the Shire
There's a brave little hobbit whom we all admire
With his long wooden pipe, fuzzy woolly toes
Lives in a hobbit-hole and everybody knows him.

Bilbo, Bilbo! Bilbo Baggins
Only three feet tall,
Bilbo, Bilbo! Bilbo Baggins
The bravest little hobbit of them all

Now hobbits are a peace-lovin' folk you know
They're never in a hurry and they take things slow
They don't like to travel away from home
They just want to eat and be left alone.

But one day Bilbo was asked to go
On a big adventure to the caves below
To help some dwarves get back their gold
That was stolen by a dragon in the days of old.

Bilbo, Bilbo! Bilbo Baggins
Only three feet tall,
Bilbo, Bilbo! Bilbo Baggins
The bravest little hobbit of them all

Well he fought with the goblins!
He battled the trolls!
He riddled with Gollum!
The magic ring he stole!
He was chased by wolves,
Lost in the forest,
Escaped in a barrel from the elf-king's halls.

Bilbo, Bilbo! Bilbo Baggins
Only three feet tall,
Bilbo, Bilbo! Bilbo Baggins
The bravest little hobbit of them all

Now he's back in his home in the land of the Shire,
That brave little hobbit whom we all admire,
Just a-sittin' on a treasure of silver and gold,
A-puffin' on his pipe in his hobbit-hole.

Bilbo, Bilbo! Bilbo Baggins
Only three feet tall,
Bilbo, Bilbo! Bilbo Baggins
The bravest little hobbit of them all
(repeat ad lib)
