Ho! Ho! Ho! To the Bottle I Go is a poem found within the chapter "A Short Cut to Mushrooms" of The Fellowship of the Ring.

Text

Ho! Ho! Ho! to the bottle I go
To heal my heart and drown my woe.
Rain may fall and wind may blow,
And many miles be still to go,
But under a tall tree I will lie,
And let the clouds go sailing by.

Merry and Pippin sing the song at the Green Dragon, with slightly altered lyrics; the last two lines are:

But better than rain or rippling brook,
Is a mug of ale inside this Took.
