And shall Trelawney die?
Yea, shall Trelawney die/
Then thirty thousand underground
Will know the reason why.
And will they scorn Tre Pol and Pen
And shall Trelawney die?
Then thirty thousand Cornish boys
will know the reason why.
Trelawney is in keep and hold,
Trelawney he may die,
But thirty thousand Cornishmen
Will know the reason why.
