Chip the glasses and crack the plates!
Blunt the knives and bend the forkes!
That's what Bilbo Baggins hates-
Smash the bottles and burn the corks!
Cut the cloth and tread on the fat!
Pour the milk on the pantry floor!
Leave the bones on the bedroom mat!
Splash the wine on every door!
Dump the crocks in a boiling bowl;
Pound them up with a thumping pole;
And wehn you've finished, if any are whole,
Send them down the hall to roll!
Tha's what Bilbo Baggins hates! So, carefully! carefully with plates!
The Hobbit (1937) An Unexpected Party The song the Dwarves sang in Bilbo's house when he asks them to be careful with he's things
