Composer: Charles Villiers Stanford
Original text and translations
Ho! who comes here with bagpiping and drumming?
O! the Morris 'tis I see, the Morris dance acoming.
Come quickly, Come lasses come, come quickly!
See, how trim they dance and trickly.
Hey, there again! How the bells they shake it.
Now for our town; there, and take it.
Soft awhile, not away so fast, they melt them.
Piper! be hang'd awhile. Knave, the dancers swelt them.
Out there, out awhile! You come too far, I say, in.
Give the hobby horse more room to play in.
