The Green Bed
2 O what for luck, dear Johnny ? No for luck, says he;
I lost my ship and cargo All on the raging sea.
3 Go bring your daughter Polly And set her down by me. We'll drink a melancholy And married we will be.
4 My daughter's busy
And can't come in to thee; Except you wait an hour, It's one, two and three.
5 O Johnny, being drowsy, He dropped down his head. He called for a candle
To light him to bed.
6 My beds they are full And has been all the week, And now for your lodging Out of doors you may seek.
7 It's bring here your reckoning book, Johnny he did say,
And let me pay my reckoning bill Before I go away.
