lyrics

Where have you been all the day,
Henry my son?
Where have you been all the day,
My beloved one?
Away, in the meadow
Away, in the meadow
Make my bed, I’ve a pain in me head
And I want to lie down.

What did you have to eat
Henry my son?
What did you have to eat
My beloved one?
Some poisoned beans
Some poisoned beans
Make my bed, I’ve a pain in me head
And I want to lie down.

What will it leave your mother?
Henry my son?
What will it leave your mother?
My beloved one?
A bed to deuil on
A bed to deuil on
Make my bed, I’ve a pain in me head
And I want to lie down.

What will it leave your sweetheart?
Henry my son?
What will it leave your sweetheart?
My beloved one?
A rope to hang her
A rope to hang her
Make my bed, I’ve a pain in me head
And I want to lie down.
