  1. Quin Finnegan says

    He bear her off, he bear her down
    He bear her into an orchard ground

    Lu li lu lay lu li lu lay
    The falcon hath bourne my mate away

    And in this orchard there was a hold
    That was hanged with purple and gold
    And in that hold there was a bed
    And it was hanged with gold so red

    Lu li lu lay lu li lu lay
    The falcon hath bourne my mate away

    And on this bed there lyeth a knight
    His wound is bleeding day and night
    By his bedside kneeleth a maid
    And she weepeth both night and day

    Lu li lu lay lu li lu lay
    The falcon hath bourne my mate away

    By his bedside standeth a stone
    Corpus christi written thereon
