Lyrics

A noblemen's fair daughter Came down a narrow lane. And met with Captain Wedderburn, The keeper of the game Now my pretty fair miss If it wasn't for the law, You and I in the bed might lie Roll me over next to the wall Roll me over next to the wall Now, my dear good man, she said Do not be perplexed Before that you might bed with me You must answer questions six. Six questions you must answer me, And I will ask them all And you and I in the bed might lie Roll me over next to the wall Roll me over next to the wall What is rounder than a ring, And higher than the trees? And what is worse than a woman's curse, And what is deeper than the sea? What bird sings first, which one's best? Where does the dew first fall And you and I in a bed might lie Roll me over next to the wall Roll me over next to the wall The earth is rounder than a ring, And heaven is higher than the trees, The devil curse is worse than a woman's curse, And hell in deeper than the sea The lark sings first, the thrush sings best, Earth is where the dew falls And you and I in a bed might lie Roll me over next to the wall You and I in the bed might lie Roll me over next to the wall Roll me over next to the wall He takes her by her lily-white hand And leads her down the hall And he takes her by her slender waist For fear that she might fall And he lays her on a bed of down Without a doubt at all And he and she lie in one bed Roll me over next to the wall And she and he lie in one bed Roll me over next to the wall Roll me over next to the wall Roll me over next to the wall
