: : Hi,
: : I am researching this song for a friend - she is looking for the MEANINGS of each verse... any ideas?
: Hi Lara
: I was doing the same research when I came upon your message by way of a search engine.
: Have you had any replies of interest? I have found very little and that seemed to indicate that it is an old song (17??), apparently of British or Scandinavian origin.
: I've seen no explanation of the verses, but would love to know the background. The characters sound quite dramatic (lily-white boys, the rivals, etc.) They sound as if they are characters from some tale - or perhaps public figures of the day. Can't offer any more yet but will keep looking and will post back if anything surfaces.
