Subject: Serving Girl's Holiday
I'm looking for a written source or background info for "Serving Girl's Holiday".. I learned the song from a Maddy Prior and Tim Hart record, but they had no liner notes about the songs and where they came from. The first verse goes:

I've waited longing for this day,
Spindle, bobbin and spool, away,
memory lapse here,
For it is our holiday
