Subject: RE: Martin said to his man
There are quite a few morris side verses:

I saw the Squire buy a round - Fie Man, Fie,
I saw the Squire buy a round - Who's the fool now,
I saw the Squire buy a round - Saw the Bagman turn one down,
Thou hast well drunken man - who's the fool now.

I saw ***** dance a jig - Fie Man, Fie,
I saw ***** dance a jig - Who's the fool now,
I saw ***** dance a jig - He looked just like a drunken pig,
Thou hast well drunken man - who's the fool now.


and for the ladies:

I saw a lass dance Shepherd's Hey - Fie Man, Fie,
I saw a lass dance Shepherd's Hey - Who's the fool now,
I saw a lass dance Shepherd's Hey - Halfway through her bra gave way,
Thou hast well drunken man - who's the fool now.


And of course you could even have one for a famous notorious catter:

I saw old Spaw hold his wind - Fie Man, Fie,
I saw old Spaw hold his wind - Who's the fool now,
I saw old Spaw hold his wind - When he let it out, God how he grinned,
Thou hast well drunken man - who's the fool now.
