2.óLORD RENDAL.
1   O where have you been to, Rendal my son ? O where have you been, my sweet pretty one? I've been to my sweetheart; O make my bed soon, I'm sick to my heart and fain would lie down.
2   O what did she give you, Rendal my son ? O what did she give you, my pretty one ?
She gave me some eels; O make my bed soon* I'm sick to my heart and fain would lie down.
3   O what colour were they, Rendal my son ? O what colour were they, my pretty one ?
They were speckled and blotched: O make my bed soon, I'm sick to my heart and fain would lie down.
4   O where did she get them, Rendal my son ? O where did she get them, my pretty one? From hedges and ditches; O make my bed soon, I'm sick to my heart and fain would lie down.
5   O where are your bloodhounds, Rendal my son ? O where are your bloodhounds, my pretty one? They swelled and they died; O make my bed soon, I'm sick to my heart and fain would lie down.
6   O that was strong poison, Rendal my son ! O that was strong poison, my pretty one! You'll die, you'll die, Rendal my son, You'll die, you'll die, my sweet pretty one.
