Eleven Rings for the Elven Queens under the sky,
Eleven for Mortal Men to party hard till the morning light,
Two for the Dwarf orgs in their halls of stone,
One for the Main Organizer on his dark throne.
In the Land of Thessaloniki where the sun does shine.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Course to bring them all and in the Oil bind them
I feel it in the water.
I feel it in the Earth.
I smell it in the air.
