Death Of Queen Jane
Queen Jane lay in labor full nine days or more
'Til the women were so tired, they could stay no longer there (2x)
"Good women, good women, good women as ye be
Will you open my right side and find my baby"
"Oh no," cried the women, "That thing it never can be
We will go to find King Henry, and hear what he say."
King Henry, he was called for, and King Henry, he did come
"And what ails, my lady, your eyes they look so dim?"
Henry, dear Henry, will you do one thing for me?
That's to open my right side and find my baby"
"Oh no," cried King Henry, "That's a thing I never can do
If I lose the Flower of England, I shall lose the branch too"
There was fiddling, aye, and dancing on the day the babe was born
But poor Queen Jane who carried him lay cold as a stone.
