    I agree that its a fun bit of verse, but it wasn't sung by Tom Bombadil, it was said by Sam when they came across Bilbo's trolls'. (Report) Reply

    This is one of my favourite poems by Tolkien. Tom Bombadil is also my fav character in Lord of the Rings ;) try reading it out loud and yell the two words.. you know like in verse one: say -...for meat was hard to come by.
    Then yell: DONE BY! GUM BY!
    and do it with all the verses. So fun, and it makes you think that Tom was an old crackhead! (Report) Reply
