Caution: You are now annotating this song as

He bear her off, he bear her down
He bear her into an orchard ground

Lu li lu lay lu li lu lay
The falcon hath bourne my mate away
And in this orchard there was a hold
That was hanged with purple and gold
And in that hold there was a bed
And it was hanged with gold so red

Lu li lu lay lu li lu lay

On this bed there lyeth a knight
His wound is bleeding both day and night

By his bedside kneeleth a maid
And she weepeth both night and day

Lu li lu lay lu li lu lay

By his bedside standeth a stone
Corpus christi written thereon
