BOY JOHNNY.

“If you’ll busk you as a bride
  And make ready,
It’s I will wed you with a ring,
  O fair lady.”

“Shall I busk me as a bride,
  I so bonny,
For you to wed me with a ring,
  O boy Johnny?”

“When you’ve busked you as a bride
  And made ready,
Who else is there to marry you,
  O fair lady?”

“I will find my lover out,
  I so bonny,
And you shall bear my wedding-train,
  O boy Johnny.”
