The Two Towers, “The Passage of the Marshes”. Gollum sang this song as he splashed in a shallow stream as he lead Frodo and Sam to Mordor.

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 —

“Ha! Ha! What does 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!
