The Bramblebury Gazette   by Lina Willowwood

Lyrics
As I went to my postbox one morning so fair
The postman came running, fresh out of air
He gave me a paper, then fell to the ground
Gasped and coughed for a while then he said with resound

There's a paper out in Bramblebury
They call it the Gazette
It's filled to the brim, not with tales that are grim
But with good solid happy Shire news

The news quite intrigued me, I soon felt the need
To pick up the paper, I wanted to read
News of the weather, if crops still would grow
Or if crusty old hobbits said we would get snow

There's a paper out in Bramblebury
They call it the Gazette
It's filled to the brim, not with tales that are grim
But with good solid happy Shire news

Some fresh juicy gossip of the mayor and thain
If the upcoming festival will meet with rain
And news of the bounders, as they make their rounds
Drinking ales at the inn, and not guarding our bounds

There's a paper out in Bramblebury
They call it the Gazette
It's filled to the brim, not with tales that are grim
But with good solid happy Shire news

But the thing that I most of all would like to read
Is stories of my all-time favourite feed
You might want your pies, and of course they're okay
But biscuits are better, they quite make my day

There's a paper out in Bramblebury
They call it the Gazette
Now Yola and Byron will help fill our day
With nothing but good solid Shire news
