Round around, about a wood
as I walked, late in the evening,
so fair, so fresh and gay, under a hawthorn tree,
I heard a pretty maid, that talked,
a pretty, merry maid
that long before had walked,
Hey ho trolly lo, trolly lolly,
Hey ho trolly lo, heavy heart quoth she,
my lovely, lovely lover
hath disdained me.
