The False Young Man
2   For to see two lovers meet, my dear, And hear what they did say,
That I might learn a little more of their mind Before I was forced away.
3   Before I was forced away, Before I was forced away,
That I might learn a little more of their mind Before I was forced away.
4  Come in, come in, my old true love, And sit you down by me,
For it has been three-quarters of a year Since together we have been.
5   Since together we have been, my dear, Since together we have been,
For it has been three-quarters of a year Since together we have been.
6   I can't come in, my old true love, For I ain't got a moment to stay,
For I heard you give your heart to another young man, And I've no more time to stay.
7   I've climbed as high a tree as there is, And I've robbed as rich a nest,
And I've come down without e'er a fall, And I'll marry who I do love best.
