Upsen Downs was a dwarven song and the name of the subject of the song: a mythical dwarven utopian town in a deep mine.

Once the many formal verses had been sung, it was customary to improvise further verses, where each singer would take a turn to state their own wants from the imaginary town.[1]

Climb that trail
Break down that door
Find that tunnel
and run some more

Cross that bridge of fiery glow
Running deeper down below
Make some smiles from those frowns
Ye've found the town of Upsen Downs!

Upsen Downs! Upsen Downs!
Ye've found the town of Upsen Downs!
Upsen Downs! Upsen Downs!
Make some smiles from those frowns.

Ye've found the place o' the finest ale
With arm-sized pretzels that're never stale!
With big Chef Muglump and his coney stew
And Master Bumble with his forty brews!

And in the holes ye can break the rock
and haul it up with yer tackle and block
Smelt it down and ye'll get it sold
Upsen Downs's got the finest gold!

Upsen Downs! Upsen Downs!
Ye've found the town of Upsen Downs!
Upsen Downs! Upsen Downs!
Make some smiles from those frowns.
