First Robin Hood began a health
To Marian his onely dear;                                            ro
And his yeomen all, both comly and tall,
Did quickly bring up the rear.
For in a brave vein they tost off the bouls,
Whilst thus they did remain ; And every cup, as they drunk up,                                  is
They filled with speed again.
At last they ended their merryment,
And went to walk in the wood, Where Little John and maid Marian
Attended on bold Robin Hood.                                    90
In sollid content together they liv'd,
With all their yeomen gay; They liv'd by their hands, without any lands,
And so they did many a day.
But now to conclude, an end I will make,                  85
In time as I think it good; For the people that dwell in the north can tell
Of Marian and bold Robin Hood.
