Vt, re, me, fa, sol, la,
la, sol, fa, me, re, vt.
Hey downe, down a.
My heart of gold as true as steele
As I me leant vnto the bowres,
but if my Lady loue me well,
Lord so Robin lowres,
heauve and hoe Rumbelo,
hey trolo troly lo,
My Ladies gone to Canterbury,
S. Thomas be her boote.
Shee met with Kate of Malmsbury,
why weepst thou maple roote:
O sleepst thou or wakst thon Iessery,
Cooke, the rost it burnes,
turne round about, turn round.
O Frier, how fares thy bandelow
Frier, how fares thy Sandelow.
