What are they singing about the Hobbits in this clip? Listen to the words as they chant:

I hear something like:

"A malted milk,
A malted milk Hobbit"

Or:

"I want my fat,
I want my fat Hobbit"

What do you hear?

Ee botch de bah!
Ee botch de bah, hobbit!
Somebody's concept of ancient Egyptian, I suppose.
It does sound like it is something about hobbits.

There was an ancient Egyptian account of a captured pygmy being brought to a Pharaoh, so it's not out of the realm of possibility they grabbed a Hobbit now and then….

'tis the neo-Aegytian version of the classical "Spam" song showing the influence of the Achaean Python mythos on the culture. If you bwant to add neo-Aegyptian hobbits, Pendraken do them in their fantasy range, as well as later Japanese Hobbits, as they were known for not getting out of bed for earlier conflicts.

Curiously, both on my "to-do" list. Having read that the real hobbit shared its environ with komodo dragons & pygmy mammoths – the idea of one mounted on the latter hunting the former-. Mr Khurasan, bags I first purchase.*

*I had delerium during the flu, dreampt of Karks 3 weeks before they came out- ever since-.

I absolutely love the original name of that song when it was written for the movie …

"Waxing a Virgin"

Guys,

I finally found out what they are saying …

El Maltemal
Tey Han De Mobbit

Check it out:

I knew it had something to do with malts and hobbits!

I haven't seen this movie in ages! Do you notice Hollywood always used the same type of music for stuff like mystery cults or demonic possession?

Cacique Caribe28 Apr 2013 1:41 p.m. PST

TKDGuy,

Yes!!! They usually do something like a twisted, hostile-sounding version of "Medieval" church hymns. More like reciting insults than singing.

Believe it or not, it really reminds me of some ancient form of rap music!!! :)

PS. Here's a possessed cat, channeling someone doing an ancient cult chant:

LOL That is one angry kitty in the first video. I hear my cats making similar noises when they fight. The second one looks like its enjoying itself, though.

Sounds a bit like "a bouncy, bounce Hobbit…"

But the rest didn't make any sense.
