A Roving (literal translation)

 

In Newlyn there was a fair maid

Blessed Ladies

In Newlyn there was a fair maid

Listen to me please

In Newlyn there was a fair maid

And many sweet lovers she had

No more will I go a roving fair maid.

A roving, A roving

So far have I been a roving

No more will I go a roving fair maid.

 

I went walking through the town

Blessed ladies etc

And spoke kindly in many ways

My money was all spent

Blessed ladies etc

In a drinking house with you

 

Beware you comrades true

Blessed Ladies etc

Do not fall in love with a crafty woman
