Hey downe downe.
heave and ho, Rumbelo,
follow me my sweet heart,
follow me where I goe.

Shall I goe walke the woods so wild,
wandering here and there as I was once
full sore beguild what remedy though
alas for love I die with woe.

Oft have I ridden upon my gray nag
and with his cut tayle he plaid the wag
and down he fell upon his cragge
fa la re la, la ri dan dino.
