The Whore's Lament (or the Magdalene's Lament)

anonimo
Lingua: Inglese



As I come in by Tansey's wood,
And in by Tansey's mill O,
Four-and-twenty of Geordie's men
Kissed me against my will O.

Diddle dow diddle dow diddle dow dow dow
Diddle dee diddle da diddle dow-o

Oh once I was a lady fair,
And liked the young men well O,
Now I'm in the correction-house,
A woeful take to tell O!

Diddle dow diddle dow diddle dow dow dow
Diddle dee diddle da diddle dow-o

When we lived in yon tavern-house,
We lived in a good case O,
Neither wanted nor meat nor drink
Nor bonnie lads to kiss O.

Diddle dow diddle dow diddle dow dow dow
Diddle dee diddle da diddle dow-o

But now I'm in the correction-house,
And sorely do I mourn o;
Now I'm in the correction-house,
And whipped until my turn O.

Diddle dow diddle dow diddle dow dow dow
Diddle dee diddle da diddle dow-o

But when I gets my liberty,
And I hope it will be soon O,
I hope to be a married wife
When my thirty days are done O.

Diddle dow diddle dow diddle dow dow dow
Diddle dee diddle da diddle dow-o
