Song Meaning
Verse 1
He bear her off, he bear her down
He bear her into an orchard ground
Lu li lu lay
Lu li lu lay
The falcon hath bourne my mate away
Verse 2
And in that orchard there was a hold
That was hanged with purple and gold
And in that hold there was a bed
And it was hanged with gold so red
Lu li lu lay, lu li lu lay
The falcon hath bourne my mate away
Verse 3
On this bed there lyeth a knight
His wound is bleeding day and night
By his bedside kneeleth a maid
And she weepeth both night and day
Lu li lu lay, lu li lu lay
The falcon hath bourne my mate away
Verse 4
By his bedside standeth a stone
Corpus Christi written thereon.
