As sung by John Roberts and Tony Barrand on Dark Ships in the Forest. According to their notes, the melody they use appears in Sedley's book "The Seeds of Love."
One evening as I rambled, two miles below Fermoy,
She said, "Young man, be civil, my company forsake,
"Oh, no, my dear, I an no rake, brought up in Venus' train,
Her cherry cheeks and ruby lips, they lost their former dye,
"Well, if by chance you look for me, by chance you'll not me find,
So come all you pretty fair maidens, this warning take by me: Never go a-roving and shun bad company, For if you do you'll surely rue, until the day you die, And beware of meeting Reynardine all on the mountains high.
