Thread Name: DTStudy: Bedmaking
Subject: RE: DTStudy: Bedmaking
Martin Carthy included a final verse --

She cursed him first through the kitchen and then in the hall
And then in the parlor among the ladies all,
Saying "If you won't pay me, here's your little son John,
Who never cost you naught but the bedmaking."


Actually, in this verse, I sing "women" instead of "ladies".
