WE ARE THE ROVERS                         345
Are you ready for a fight ?
We are the rovers ! Are you ready for a fight ?
Though you are the guardian soldiers !
Yes, we are ready for a fight,
Though you're the rovers ! Yes, we are ready for a fight,
For we are the guardian soldiers !
—Ellesmere (Shropshire Folk-lore, p. 518),
II. We have come for a glass of wine, We are the Romans ! We have come for a glass of wine, We are King William's soldiers!
We won't serve you with the wine,
We are the Romans ! We won't serve you with the wine,
We are King William's soldiers !
We will set our dogs to watch,
We are the Romans ! We will set our dogs to watch,
We are King William's soldiers !
We don't care for you and your dogs,
We are the Romans ! We don't care for you and your dogs,
We are King William's soldiers !
We will set our police to watch,
We are the Romans! We will set our police to watch,
We are King William's soldiers !
We don't care for you and your police,
We are the Romans! We don't care for you and your police,
We are King William's soldiers !
