Hey! Ho! To the bottle I go,

To heal my heart and drown my woe.

Rain may fall and wind may blow

But there still be many miles to go.

Sweet is the sound of the pouring rain

And the stream that falls from hill to plain.

Better than rain or rippling brook

Is a mug of beer inside this took!

“Their faces were as a rule good-natured rather than beautiful, broad, bright-eyed, red-cheeked, with mouths apt to laughter, and to eating and drinking. And laugh they did, and eat, and drink, often and heartily, being fond of simple jests at all times, and six meals a day (when they could get them).” - Concerning Hobbits
