Bilbo's Farewell

lyrics

I'd like to thank you all my friends
For coming here today
A testament to our friendship
And I'd really like to stay
But now at least the time near
The sun is fading low
I hope to see you soon again
But now it's time to go.

Now it's time to go,
Now it's time to go,
I hope to see you soon again
but now it's time to go!

Dear Bagginses n' Boffins, Chubbs n' Grubbs, Burrowses and Tooks
Bracegirdles, Bolgers, Goodbodies, Hornblowers, Brockhouses n' Proudfoots (Proudfeet!)
A humble thanks to those I missed, my intent is not to do so
For your friendship each is a blessed thing, but now it's time to go.

Now it's time to go,
Now it's time to go,
For your friendship each is a blessed thing,
but now it's time to go!

On the twenty-second of September, I'll always recollect.
And Frodo too with all of you makes a Gross of my select.
Hobbits and friends and Gandalf too with a wonderful firework show.
One last regret I'll share with you is now it's time to go.

Now it's time to go,
Now it's time to go,
One last regret I'll share with you is now it's time to go.
but now it's time to go!

Now it's time to go,
Now it's time to go,
I hope to see you soon, my friends,
but now it's time to go!
