270                 THREE KNIGHTS FROM SPAIN
Naughty girl, she won't come out,
She won't come out, she won't come out;
Naughty girl, she won't come out, To see the ladies dancing.
I will come.
Pretty girl, she has come out,
She has come out, she has come out;
Pretty girl, she has come out, To see the ladies dancing. —Berwickshire (A. M. Bell, Antiquary, vol. xxx. p. 15).
XXVIII. Here come two Jews, just come from Spain, To take away your daughter Jane.
My daughter Jane is far too young, She cannot bear your chattering tongue.
Farewell! farewell! we must not stay; We'll call again another day.
Come back, come back, your choice is free, And choose the fairest one you see.
The fairest one that I can see
Is A----------F----------. Come to me.
—Cowes, Isle of Wight (Miss E. Smith).
XXIX. There came three dukes a-riding, a-riding, a-riding, There came three dukes a-riding, To court my daughter Jane.
My daughter Jane is far too young, far too young, My daughter Jane is far too young, She hath a flattering tongue.
They're all as red as roses, as roses, as roses, They're all as red as roses with sitting in the sun.
—Perth (Rev. W. Gregor).
XXX. Here comes a duke a-riding, To court your daughter Jane.
