Far over the Misty Mountains cold
To dungeons deep and caverns old
We must away ere break of day
To find our long forgotten gold
The pines were roaring on the height
The winds were moaning in the night
The fire was red, it flaming spread
The trees like torches blazed with light

Misty Mountains Cold (film adaptation lyrics)

Far over the misty mountains cold,
To dungeons deep and caverns old,
We must away, ere break of day
To find our long forgotten gold.

The pines were roaring on the height,
The winds were moaning in the night,
The fire was red, its flaming spread
The trees like torches blazed with light.

The fire was red, it flaming spread
The trees like torches blazed with light

evil-bones-mccoy that might get you started. Keeping it in verse that could fit the tune was challenging. So there are elisions and interpretations. 

Also it’s like trying to sing in klingon with a mouthful of marbles.
