Summer’s end is here, my love. Home’s where I should stay,
Here beside my Goldberry, shining bright as day!
Leaves of green, lilies white, floating in the water,
Reminders of warm brighter days, for the river’s daughter.

Surely winter isn’t far, nipping foot and toe,
Yet Withywindle calls to me, says that I must go!
There’s a task that I must find, friends who are in need,
Now before the weather turns I must do this deed.

Hey dol! Merry dol! Ring a dong dillo!
Ring a dong! Hop along! Fal lal the willow!
Tom Bom, jolly Tom, Tom Bombadillo!
