Little Musgrave and Lady Barnard
8   The very first lick Lord Dannel struck, He wound little Matthy deep ;
And the very next lick Lord Dannel struck Little Matthy fell at his feet.
9   He took his lady by the right hand, He set her on his knee.
Tell to me which you love best, Little Matthy Groves or me.
10 Very well I like your red rosy cheeks, Very well I like your chin, But better I like little Matthy Groves Than Lord Dannel and all his kin.
2   Little Matthy Groves was a-standing by ; She placed her eyes on him,
Saying: You're the darling of my heart And the darling of my life.
3   It's you no home, no place to lie, Go home with me this night.
I think by the rings you wear on your fingers You are Lord Thomas's wife. 79
