256                   THE CRUEL BROTHER.
" "What will ye leave to your brother John's wife ? "
With a heigh-ho ! and a lily gay ; " The wilderness to end her life,"
As the primrose spreads so sweetly.
This fair lady in her grave was laid,                       "*>
With a heigh-ho ! and a lily gay ; And a mass was o'er her said,
As the primrose spreads so sweetly.
.But it would have made your heart right sair, With a heigh-ho ! and a lily gay ;                       uo
To see the bridegroom rive his hair, As the primrose spreads so sweetly.
