Hollow Hills

Ancient Earth work fort and barrow
Discreetly hide their secret abodes
The most fearful hide deep inside
And venture not there on Yuletide

For invasion of their hollow hills
That music hold and Oberon fill
Is surely recommended not
For fear of death, in fear of rot

Hollow hills
Hollow hills
Hollow hills
Hollow hills

Baleful sounds and wild voices ignored
Ill luck disaster the one reward
Violating sanctity of supermen’s hills
So sad
Love lies there still

So sad
So sad
Hollow hills
Hollow hills

Witches too
And goblins too
And speckled sills
Lament
Repent
Oh mortal you
Oh mortal you
So sad
So sad
So sad
So sad
So sad
