BONNIE BROOM (questions)

There was a lady lived in the North
Lay the bend tae the bonnie broom
And she had lovely daughters three
Fa la la la la la la la la la

There was a knight of noble worth
Who also lived into the north

O late one night it was cold and bright(?)
This knight he knocked at the lady's gate

The eldest daughter she let him in
O bend(?) the door with a silver pin

The second daughter she's made his bed
And linens face(?) so fine she spread

The youngest daughter so fair and bright
In one bed lay with this noble knight

Now that you've had your will of me
O then kind sir, will you marry me?

When you have answered me questions three
O then fair maid, we will married be

O what is louder than the horn
and what is sharper than the thorn

O thunder's louder than the horn
and hunger's sharper than the thorn

And what is longer than the way
and what is deeper than the sea

O love is longer than the way
and hell is deeper than the sea

O what is greener than the grass
And what's more wicked than a woman e'er was

O envy's greener than the grass
And the devil more wicked than a woman e'er was

As soon as she the fiend did name
He flew away in a blazing flame
