Revision as of 04:41, 22 October 2011 by 71.201.112.107 (Talk)

Down, Down, To Goblin Town is eighth track on The Hobbit: The Complete Original Soundtrack. It is very similar to the more famous Where There's a Whip, There's a Way, which was featured in the other Rankin/Bass film, The Return of the King.

Lyrics

Swish, smack! Whip crack!
Smash, grab! Pinch, nab!
You go, my lad!
Ho, ho! my lad!

The black crack! the back crack!
The black crack! the back crack!
Down down to Goblin-town
Down down to Goblin-town
Down down to Goblin-town
You go, my lad!
Ho, ho! my lad!

Goblins quaff, and Goblins beat
Goblins laugh, and Goblins bleat
Batter, jabber, whip, and taver hoooooo!
Below, my lad!
Ho, ho! my lad!

The black crack! the back crack!
The black crack! the back crack!
Down down to Goblin-town
Down down to Goblin-town
Down down to Goblin-town
You go, my lad!
Ho, ho! my lad!
