Tea At Four

After all...
I hear the song of the old kitchen kettle
While dusting the elf-sword that hangs near the clock
After all...
In between meals, I prefer to sit, writing
But I'll welcome my guests if a wizard should knock

Come in, old friends, there's a chill to the autumn air
Sit by the fire while I close the door
You've got your schemes to make this a better world
My only plan is to serve tea at four

After all...
When he brings dwarves to their place at the table
We'll start with a toast to brave Thorin at rest
After all...
Peace in the hills, flowing wealth on the river
Are the legacies bought with the stone on his breast

Come in, old friends, there's a chill to the autumn air
Sit by the fire while I close the door
You've got your schemes to make this a better world
My only plan is to serve tea at four

After all...
Gandalf, be sure there'll be no more adventure
Your eye gleams with hints of the road and the fire
After all...
I know my place, being quite a small fellow
When you next need a hero, look far from this Shire

I've had enough magic
I've spent enough treasure
I've seen enough fighters, but few reasons why
I've done enough walking
I've felt enough hunger
I've met enough goblins to last 'til I die

Come in, old friends, there's a chill to the autumn air
Sit by the fire while I close the door
You've got your schemes to make this a better world
My only plan is to serve tea at four

My only plan is to serve tea at four
