Lyrics

The anthem does have lyrics, but are not well known and not normally sung. The lyrics are as follow


Far up where the eagles cry

Mountains high

Touch the sky

Wintry winds with dreary voices

Sighing all night long


Peak to peak the echoes ring

Carrying

Tarrying

All the sadness of the past

Recalled in lonely song


Far above the reach of sight

Towers white

Show their might

Reigning kings of all they see

Kneeling below


In the chasm waters pour

Evermore

Rush and roar

Dropping from the chilly height

Crowned with white snow


Bright and shining eyes appear

Drawing near

Pointed ear

Listening for the cheerful call

To start the revelry


Turned up shoes that pitter pat

Like a cat

Knowing that

Merry music weaves a spell

Of merriment and glee


Haughty chatter, twinkling light

Burning bright

What a sight

Kingdoms in the dark below

Never know day


Darkness gone from rocky hall

Smokey wall

Column tall

Shadows playing to and fro

Make it so gay


Tiny voices shout and sing

With the king

Entering

Robed in royal cloth of mountain green


Merrily he greets his band

Waves his hand

In command

Now the noise of laughter

Fill the scene


High fiddly, fiddly, fiddly

Hear the elven fiddlers play

High fiddly, fiddly, fiddly

Round the revelers swing and sway


High fiddly, fiddly, fiddly

High up the mountain wall

High fiddly, fiddly, fiddly

Rumbling, tumbling one and all


High, high

Now the mountain opens wide

High, high

Tumbling out, a goblin tide


High, high

They hurry, helter skelter

High!
