    does everyone remember the sog that gollum sings when frodo wakes up and says to gollum that u were like a hobbit once? well i was just re-reading the fellowship and i got to the chapet 'fog on the barrow-downs' and the barrow-weights sing that song but does gollum really sing it in the book? or is it just PJ idea to incorpirate it into the film?

    Check out The Passage of the Marshes in The Two Towers book. It should be on the first or second page in the chapter.
    Different song, but yes, he does sing.

    lol, I always tend to remember all Gollum/ Sméagol lines :)

    I hope this is enugh ;)


    Curse of the Ghost from Barrow-downs

    Cold be hand and heart and bone,
    and cold be sleep under stone:
    never more to wake on stony bed,
    never, till the Sun fails and the Moon is dead.
    In the black wind the stars shall die,
    and still on gold here let them lie,
    till the dark lord lifts his hand
    over dead sea and withered land.


    In the movie with Gollum instead of Tom Bombadill

    <Nightfall: Sam is asleep but Frodo is still awake. He is holding the Ring in the palm of his hand and stroking it, mesmerized. Suddenly he hears Gollum.>

    Gollum: Sooo bright. Sooo beautiful. <Frodo quickly puts the Ring back inside his shirt. He looks up to see Gollum crouching away from him, stroking the centre of his palm> our preciousss...

    Frodo: What did you say?

    Gollum: Master should be resting. Master needs to keep up his strength.

    Frodo: <Moves over and crouches in front of Gollum> Who are you?

    Gollum: Mustn’t ask us. Not its business. *Gollum, Gollum*

    Frodo: Gandalf told me you were one of the River Folk.

    Gollum: Cold be heart and hand and bone. Cold be travellers far from home.

    Frodo: He said your life was a sad story.

    Gollum: They do not see what lies ahead, when sun has failed and moon is dead.

    Frodo: You were not so very different from a hobbit once, were you... Sméagol?

    Gollum: <Looks up slowly.> What did you call me?

    Frodo: That was your name once, wasn’t it? A long time ago.

    Gollum: My name... My name... S... S...Sméagol…

    <Suddenly, the piercing cries of the Nazgûl are heard overhead>



    The Gollum song in the books

    The cold hard lands
    they bites our hands,
    they gnaws our feet.
    The rocks and stones
    are like old bones
    all bare of meat.
    But stream and pool
    is wet and cool:
    so nice for feet!
    And now we wish -

    Alive without breath;
    as cold as death;
    never thirsting, ever drinking
    clad in mail, never clinking.
    Drowns on dry land,
    thinks an island
    is a mountain;
    thinks a fountain
    is a puff of air.
    So sleek, so fair!
    What a joy to meet!
    We only wish
    to catch a fish,
    so juicy-sweet!



    Gollum: <singing> The rock and pool is nice and cool, so juicy sweet! I only wish <Whacks the fish on the rock> to catch a fish <whacks>, so juicy sweet! <The fish almost wriggles out of his grasp and he whacks it some more.>

    I came upon that very same thing and was just coming here to start a thread about it, so this is really cool.

    This line actually gollum said in the hobbit to bilbo when bilbo asked what he had lost.
    Gollum: Mustn’t ask us. No not its business. *Gollum, Gollum*
