THREE SAILORS
II. Here come three tinkers, three by three, To court your daughter, fair lady; Oh ! have you any lodgings here, oh, here ? Oh ! have you any lodgings here ?
Sleep, sleep, daughter, do not wake, Here come three tinkers we cannot take; We haven't any lodgings here, oh, here, We haven't any lodgings here.
Here come three soldiers, three by three, To court your daughter, fair lady; Oh ! have you any lodgings here, oh, here ? Oh ! have you any lodgings here ?
Sleep, sleep, daughter, do not wake, Here come three soldiers we cannot take; We haven't any lodgings here, oh, here, We haven't any lodgings here.
Here come three kings, three by three, To court your daughter, fair lady; Oh ! have you any lodgings here, oh, here ? Oh ! have you any lodgings here ?
Wake, wake, daughter, do not sleep, Here come three kings that we can take; We have some lodgings here, oh, here, We have some lodgings here.
Here's my daughter, safe and sound, And in her pocket five hundred pounds, And on her finger a five guinea gold ring, And she is fit to walk with a king.
Here's your daughter, nor safe nor sound, And in her pocket no five hundred pound, And on her finger no five guinea gold ring, And she's not fit to walk with the king.
—Sporle, Norfolk (Miss Matthews).
