"The Bard's Song - The Hobbit" as written by Hans-juergen Juergen Kuersch and Andre Olbrich....
Out in the distance
There's so much gold
The treasure that I've found
Is more than enough

Far to be the hill we've to go
Over the mountain and seas
To the old hill
Where the old dragon sleeps

Blind in the dark dungeon's night
So God please take me away from here
And Gollum shows the way right out

I'm alive
The dying dragon brought trouble and pain
And horror to the halls of stone
I'll take the mighty stone
And leave the dwarves behind
Ice and fire and forest we passed
And horror in the halls of stone

Trolls in the dark
The dawn took them all
Caught in the wood
By the wooden kings' men
But now I'm alone
'Cause I've made up my mind

By the spell of gold
The king under the mountain
Will risk the great war
Oh what a fool

He's losing control
So I am trying to find a way
Blind in the dark dungeon's night
Then darkness comes from the northern side
And Thorin clears his mind

    General CommentA nice re-telling of The Hobbit. Obviosly not the whole story, but you can get the gist of it. The king under the mountain is Thorin, leader of the party of dwarves and Bilbo.

    General CommentIt's about when Bilbo Baggins stole the stupid stone, and brought it to the Men and Elves, who wanted to fight the Dwarves, that were hiding in the mountain where Smaug lived. Bilbo wanted to prevent a war, between the Dwarves, Elves and Men. Then the, I think Goblins, | xD | came from the north, and Dwarves, Men, and Elves stood united, and fought the Goblins. After the battle was over, Thorin died.

    General CommentAbout Dildo Saggins... er, I mean Bilbo Baggins, a mention of the one ring, his journey with Gandalf and the Dwarves, and the Battle of Five Armies.

    An awesome song.

    General Comment'in the Hobbit" - does it means that hobbit ate the bard and he sings from inside? ROTFL )))

    Correct names are:
    Tha Bard's Song - In the Forest (aka just The Bard's Song)
    Tha Bard's Song - the Hobbit.
