versuri the knight and the shepherd's daughter - halali

Te rog, așteaptă...

[verse 1]
it’s of a pretty shepherdess
kept sheep upon the plain
riding by came knight william
and he was drunk with wine
you’ve stolen all my heart, good sir
yourself you are to blame
so if your vows remain in truth
please tell me your name

[chorus]
line, twine, the willow and the dee
line, twine, the willow and the dee

[verse 2]
oh some do call me jack, he said
and some do call me john
but when i’m in the fair king’s court
my name is sweet william
he mounted on his milk-white steed
away then he did ride
she tied a kerchief round her waist
and rode by the horse’s side

[chorus]
line, twine, the willow and the dee
line, twine, the willow and the dee

line, twine, the willow and the dee
[instrumental]

[verse 3]
she rode up to the riverside
she fell on her belly and swam
and when she came to the other side
she took to her heels and ran
she ran up to the king’s fair court
she pulled at the ring
it was the king came down himself
to let that fair maid in

[chorus]
line, twine, the willow and the dee
line, twine, the willow and the dee

[verse 4]
good morning to you, my pretty maid
good morning, sir, said she
you have a knight in all your court
this day has robbed me
oh has he robbed you of your gold
or any of your fee?
or robbed you of the rarest branch
that grows in your body?
he has not robbed me of my gold
or any of my fee
but he’s robbed me of the rarest branch
that’s growing in my body
[chorus]

[verse 5]
here’s twenty pounds for you, he said
all wrapped up in a glove
and twenty pounds for you, he said
to seek some other love
i will not have your twenty pounds
nor any of your fee
but i will have the king’s fair knight
this day to marry me

[chorus]
line, twine, the willow and the dee
line, twine, the willow and the dee

[verse 6]
the king called up his merry men
by one, by two, by three
young william once the foremost man
but now behind came he
accursed be that very day
that i got drunk with wine
to have a farmer’s daughter here
to be a true love of mine
if i a farmer’s daughter am
pray leave me all alone
if you make me lady of many lands
i’ll make thee lord of ten
[chorus]
line, twine, the willow and the dee
line, twine, the willow and the dee

[verse 7]
well this couple they got married
they live down in the town
she’s the great earl’s daughter
he’s the shepherd’s son!

[chorus]
line, twine, the willow and the dee
line, twine, the willow and the dee
line, twine, the willow and the dee
line, twine, the willow and the dee
line twine—
line twine—
line twine—
the willow and the dee
