Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

Henry, My Son

“Where have you been all the day, Henry my Son?

Where have you been all the day, my beloved one?”

“Courtin’ Mother, courtin’ Mother

Make my bed for I’m sick in me head

And I want to lay down and die!”

“What have you had to eat, Henry my son?

What have you had to eat, my beloved one?”

“Eels, dear Mother, eels, dear Mother

Make my bed for I’m sick in me head

And I want to lay down and die!”

“Who gave them eels to you, Henry my boy?

Who gave them eels to you, my saveloy?”

“My sweetheart, Mother, my sweetheart, Mother.

Make my bed for I’m sick in me head

And I want to lay down and die!”

“What colour were them eels, Henry my boy?

What colour were them eels, my pride and joy?”

“Green and yeller, green and yeller.

Make my bed for I’m sick in me head

And I want to lay down and die!”

“O, you’ve been poisoned, Henry my son!

O, you’ve been poisoned, my careless one.”

“Poisoned, mother?  Poisoned, mother?

Make my bed for I’m sick in me head

And I want to lay down and die!”

“What’ll you give to your sweetheart, Henry my son?

What’ll you give to your sweetheart, my precious one?”

“A rope to hang her, a rope to hang her.

Make my bed for I’m sick in me head

And I want to lay down and die!”

“What’ll you give to your mother, Henry my love?

What’ll you give to your mother, my turtle dove?”

“Love and kisses, love and kisses.

Make my bed for I’m sick in me head

And I want to lay down and die!”
