CHILDE VTET.                               73
Lord Ingram woo'd the Lady Maiserey, From father and from mother;                 w
Lord Ingram woo'd the Lady Maiserey, From sister and from brother.
Lord Ingram wooed the Lady Maiserey,
"With leave of all her kin ; And every one gave full consent,                  u
But she said no, to him.
Lord Ingram wooed the Lady Maiserey,
Into her father's ha'; Childe Vyet wooed the Lady Maiserey,
Among the sheets so sma'.                           20
Now it fell out upon a day,
She was dressing her head, That ben did come her father dear,
Wearing the gold so red.
" Get up now, Lady Maiserey,                      25
Put on your wedding gown, For Lord Ingram will be here,
Your wedding must be done !"
" I'd rather be Childe Vyet's wife,
The white fish for to sell,                            30
Before I were Lord Ingram's wife, To wear the silk so well!
