Now foot is as I do Tom Boy Tom,
Now foot is as I do Swithen a
And Hick so must trick it all alone
Till Robin come leaping in between a

The cramp is in my purse full sore
No money will bide therein a
And if I had some salve therefore
O lightly then would I sing a
Hey hoe, the cramp a.

Robin Hood, said Little John,
Come dance before the Queen a
In a red petticoat and a green jacket,
A white hose and a green a

Sing after fellows as you hear me,
A toy that seldom is seen a,
Three country dances in on to be,
A pretty conceit as I ween a
