William Taylor
2   If his name may be one William Taylor, Very like, very like I know the man.
If you'll rise early in the morning, You'll see him walking down the strand.
3   As she rose early the very next morning, Just about the break of day,
And she saw her own dear William Taylor A-walking with his lady gay.
4   If this here is my William Taylor, Good lord, good lass, what shall I do ? She wrung her lily-white hands and crying, And overboard her body threw.
