Good Morning, My Pretty Little Miss
2   The younger you be the better for me, More fitting for to be my bride,
For I wanted to say on my wedding day That I married my bride in maze.
3   He courted her by compliment Till he got her to comply;
He courted her with a merry mood, All night with him she lay.
4  The night has passed and the day has come, The morning sun do shine.
I will arise, said he, put on my clothes, And then, sweet love, I'm gone.
5   O that's not what you promised me All down by the greenwood side. You promised for to marry me And make me your sweet bride.
6   If ever I promised to marry you, It was all in a merry mood,
For I'll avow and will swear, I never was born for you.
