Written during FAWM 2015

lyrics

Ok let me be clear
I’m not a coward
For staying here

I will keep faith
Even if it means
Facing a wraith

The Old Forest is not for me
And someone has to stay
Someone needs to keep the lights on
While you’re running away

I’m Fatty Bolger
And I’m still a hero
Not one you would expect

I’m Fatty Bolger
And I’m in the story
And I want a little respect
Please give me a little respect

Ok, all the talk's ‘bout
Frodo and the others
It’s starting to make me ill
It's all great heroics
They forget about poor Bolger
And good old Bombadil

Now things are going south
Whose this wizard any way
Someone needs to set things right
Looks like Freddy's gonna save the day


I’m Fatty Bolger
And I’m still a hero
Not one you would expect

I’m Fatty Bolger
And I’m in the story
And I want a little respect
Please give me a little respect

Come on you fellows
Join the revolution
We’ve got a lot to do

They may clap us in irons
And throw us in a hole
But heroes see it through

I sweated off a hundred pounds
Starving, chained to the floor
I did my best to set things right
I’m not fatty any more

I’m Fred Bolger
And I’m a big hero
Not one you would expect

I’m Fred Bolger
And I’m in the story
And I deserve a little respect
Please give me a little respect
