William and Polly
2 O stay at home, Sweet William, O stay at home, said she;
0 stay at home, Sweet William, And do not go to sea.
3 My king doth give command, my love, And I am bound to go;
If it was to save my life,
1 dare not answer No.
4 I'll cut my hair, love, paint my skin, And men's apparel put on.
I will go with you, Sweet William, And sail on sea with you.
5 The men do lie bleeding there And the bullets swiftly fly,
And the silver trumpets a-sounding To drown the dismal cry.
6 O tell me of no death nor danger, For God will be my guide,
And I value not no danger When William's by my side.
7 O if I was to meet some pretty girl All on the highway,
And was to take a like unto her, What would my Polly say ?
