The Sheriff got Little John Twelve months of the Knight,
Therefore he gave him right anon A good horse and a wight.
coir Now is Little John the Sheriffs man,
He give us well to speed, But alway thought Little John
To quit him well his meed.
' Now so God me help,' said Litt'e John,
' And by my true lewte, I shall be the worst servant to him
That ever yet had he.'
It befell upon a Wednesday,
The Sheriff on hunting was gone,
And Little John lay in his bed, And was forgotten at home.
Therefore he was fasting
Till it was past the noon. ' Good sir steward, I pray thee,
Give me to dine,' said Little John.
' It is too long for Greenleaf,
Fasting so long to be; Therefore I pray thee, steward,
My dinner give thou me.'
