1  I know a maiden fair to see,
Take care! Take care!
She can both false and friendly be,
Beware! Beware!
Trust her not, she is fooling thee!

2  She has two eyes so soft and brown,
Take care! Take care!
She gives a side glance and looks down;
Beware! Beware!
Trust her not, she is fooling thee!

3  And she has hair of a golden hue;
Take care! Take care!
And what she says, it is not true;
Beware! Beware!
Trust her not, she is fooling thee!

4  She gives thee a garland woven fair;
Take care! Take care!
It is a fool's-cap for thee to wear,
Beware! Beware!
Trust her not, she is fooling thee!
