Track Name: Eye See You (It's Christmas)
My my, I think I spy
With my merry little eye
Ho-ho, way down below
Something shiny in the snow

Isildur's Bane, another name to be admired
Another storm, what's more, the Scourging of the Shire
Another day, another way to say I'll never ever tire

My precious, you're the wish that I desire
Won't you come and spend your Christmas by the fire?

So the season's growing near
And I'm just trying to spread some cheer
A little joy, a little mirth
Death to all in Middle-Earth

I'd send a sleigh, if you would say where you've retired
Sing you songs with all the demon-elven choirs
Build a winter wonderland among this muck and all this mire

You're the Christmas wish that desire
Won't you come and spend your Christmas by the fire?

See you, I see you (x2)
I can't tell you where I would not go
Won't you come and find me 'neath the mistletoe?

Now it's almost Christmas Eve
And I'm a child who still believes
This year, you'll come to see
A part of me is you is me

I'd send a sleigh, if you would say where you've retired
Sing you songs with all the demon-elven choirs
Build a winter wonderland among this muck and all this mire

You're the Christmas wish that desire
Won't you come and spend your Christmas by the fire?

See you, I see you (x2)

Please allow me to explain, dear
Why I sent the Nine, not reindeer
Ghosts of you and me still linger
Ever since I lost that finger

Christmastime will soon be knocking
on the Gates of Black
I would take an empty stocking
Just to have you back

See you, I see you (x 2)

No, I can't tell you where I would not go
So come and find me 'neath the mistletoe
My precious, you're the wish that I desire
So, come and spend your Christmas by the fire
Track Name: Third Age Xmas (War Ain't Over)
And so it’s the Third Age
And what have we done?
Fought a great battle
Can’t saw what we won
But I’m walkin’ to save you
And for courage to say

If we ever rid ourselves of the Ring
And the sting
Of this nosey Eye
Rosie, I
Would like to take your hand on Christmas Day

And so it’s the Third Age
For Hobbit and Man
As for the Wood Elves
They’re leaving this land
And as for our Company
They’ve all drifted away

If we ever make it through
Past the gloom
To Mount Doom
I’ll do anything
Lose this precious Ring
Just to see the Elves on Christmas Day

War ain’t over
We don’t want it
War ain’t over now
War ain’t over
We don’t want this
War ain’t over now

And so it’s the Third Age
And Christmas again
It’s time to go home now
Via Bag End
Just one tiny mountain
Then we’ll be on our way

Yeah we’ve nearly made it through
Here we loom
On Mount Doom
So let’s do this thing
Lose that silly Ring
So we’re back where we belong on Christmas Day
At the Dragon, singin’ songs on Christmas Day

And so it’s the Third Age
And Christmas back home
Memory’s hazy
Of where we used to roam
No, I can’t remember
Fields of barley or hay

No, I can’t recall the lark
Shadow’s growin’ dark
On this stark empty mountainside
Well, at least we tried
And I don’t think I’ll see Elves on Christmas Day
No, I don’t think we’ll see Elves on Christmas Day

War ain’t over
We don’t want it
War ain’t over now
War ain’t over
We don’t want this
War ain’t over now

And so it’s the Third Age
Christmas, my friend
It’s come without ribbons
Here at the end
But I’m walkin’ to save you
And for courage to say

If you truly feel the burden you bear
Can’t be shared
Isn’t meant for two
I will carry you
Just to see you safe on Christmas Day
Just to see you smile on Christmas Day

War ain’t over
We don’t want it
War ain’t over now / Oh, It’s Christmas in the Shire
War ain’t over / Just to see you smile on Christmas
We don’t want this
War ain’t over now

Just to see you smile on Christmas Day
