264                        SWEET WILLIAM.
It's I would shoot thee stiff and dead, In the place where thou dost stand."               n
Up and spoke then sweet William,
And a blithe blink from his e'e: " If ye ne'er be shot till I shoot you,
Ye'se ne'er be shot for me.
" Come out, come out, my foremost man,             75
And lift my lady on; Commend me all to my goodmother,
At night when you gang home."
