“As I rode out one morning bright
A fair maid I did spy…”

The elderly hobbit warbled… a little off-key, while the tavern’s customers listened politely.

“Her hair was curled, her feet were crimped,
A twinkle graced her eye…”

“Did he say rowed, or rode? Pippin’s stage-whisper wasn’t quiet.

“I dunno. Does it matter?” Merry replied

“Well if he ‘rowed out’ he was in a boat, and she’d be a mermaid.”

“Can’t have been - her feet were crimped.”

“True. But maybe they weren’t feet - could have been fins…”

...And then they realised the whole tavern was listening to them.
