ROBIN HOOD AND THE BEGGAR. 195
" One of us shall with you remain,
Because you're ill at ease, The other two shall bring him back,
To use him as you please."
" Now, by my troth," says good Robin, «s
" I trow there's enough said ; If he get scouth to wield his tree,
I fear you'll both be paid."
" Be ye not fearM, our good master,
That we two can be dung jo
With any blutter base beggar, That has nought but a rung.
" His staff shall stand him in no stead ;
That you shall shortly see; But back again he shall be led, cs
And fast bound shall he be, To see if ye will have him slain,
Or hanged on a tree."
" But cast you slily in his way,
Before he be aware, co
And on his pike-staff first hands lay,
You'll speed the better far."
Now leave we Robin with his man,
Again to play the child, And learn himself to stand and gang «
By haulds, for all his eild.
