Come All You Fair and Tender Ladies
2 They'll tell to you some lovely story And tell you their love is true, Straightway to some other girl and court her, And that's the love they have for you.
3 I wish I were a little sparrow,
Had sparrow's wings and I could fly; I would fly away to my false true-love, And while he would talk I would deny.
4 But I am not a little sparrow, Got no wings, nor I can't fly;
I will sit right down in grief and sorrow And try to pass my troubles by.
5 If I had knowed before I courted That love had been so hard to win,
I'd locked my heart with the keys of golden, And pinned it down with a silver pin.
