TRADITIONAL SONGS OF UNCERTAIN DATE.
733
As me and my comarade were setting of a snare, 'Twas then we spied the gamekeeper, for him we did not care, For we can wrestle and fight, my hoys, and jump o'er anywhere, Oh! 'tis my delight on a shining night, in the season of the year.
As me and my comarade were setting four or five,
And taking on 'em up again, we caught a hare alive,
We took the hare alive, my boys, and thro' the woods did steer,
Oh ! 'tis my delight on a shining night, in the season of the year.
I threw him on my shoulder, and then we trudged home, We took him to a neighbour's house, and sold him for a crown, We sold him for a crown, my boys, but I did not tell you where, Oh ! 'tis my delight on a shining night, in the season of the year.
Success to every gentleman that lives in Lincolnshire,
Success to every Poacher that wants to sell a hare,
Bad luck to every gamekeeper that will not sell his deer,
Oh ! 'tis my delight on a shining night, in the season of the year.
