the outlaw, part 1

good king henry
and his hunting party
liked their forests dark
and their ale right hearty

bad king william
had a daughter
she ran away
but his soldiers caught her

when good king henry
heard the tale
his tears fell down
like autumn hail

he summoned his knights
and his pikemen true
and cried, good fellows
here's what we'll do

burn the forest
burn the town
but pull king william's
castle down

and save the princess
at all costs
or glory and honor
will be lost

the deer, the rabbit
the poachers and peasants
and all the other
forest's tenants

fled the wood
in streaming herds
when they heard
the good king's words
