  • Frodo of the Nine Fingers and the Ring of Doom.
  • It's so easy not to try,
    Let the world go drifting by.
    If you never say hello
    You won't have to say goodbye.

    It's so easy not to try,
    Never stay around to cry.
    Move along when troubles come
    Like a mindless butterfly.

  • Less can be more, and small can be beautiful,
    I don't want it all, just part of wonderful

    For what do I need, when you get right down to it?
    Just a garden and seed, and the love to pursue it

    Things I can't do without, are the small things that life is all about.

  • Leave tomorrow till it comes.
    Sleep will ease your mind.
    With the dawn you'll find, problems realign
    A different way than yesterday.


  • Where there's a whip, there's a way.
