Come listen a while and I'll sing you a song
Of three merry gentlemen riding along,
They met with Sweet Joan and to her did say
I'm afraid this cold morning will do you some harm.
O no, kind sir, the maiden said
This cold morning will do me no harm.
There's one thing I crave lies betwixt your legs
If you give me that it will keep me warm.
He got off his horse --- she mounted it quick
Looking the gentleman hard in the face,
Says, "You knew not my meaning, you wrong understand me"
And away she went galloping down the green lane.
From The Seeds of Love, Sedley
