The Boatsman and the Chest
2 The boatsman came home when he come at night, And he knocked on the door and he knocked just right. This stirred the little tailor from his sleep:
0 kind Miss, where can I creep ?
3 She put him in the chest and bid him lie still: You're just as safe there as a mouse in a mill. She trippled downstairs and she opened the door, And in come her husband and three or four more.
4 She 'luted to him and give to him a kiss, Saying: O kind Sir, what's the meaning of this ?
1 haven't come here for to disturb you of your rest,
But to come to bid you good-bye and to take away my chest.
