The Ballad of Robin Hood and the Lady Clara - lyrics

playlist Playlist
When Robin was a-walking through the Sherwood forests green,
He did come across a maiden unlike any he had seen,
She'd a smile to melt the Prince's heart (if he had one at all!)
And a wit to match the stranger's she was travelling withal.
When Robin was a-marching by the quickly-flowing brook,
He was confronted by this stranger. Neither man played by the book,
For they duelled upon the bridge, nay, not to win the lady's heart,
But to show which one of them was brave, noble, diligent and smart.
Listen ye, O listen ye! For all of ye should
Hear the tale of sweet Clara and our own Robin Hood!
When Robin fell into the stream, the lady she did wail,
And she criticised her friend for his unchivalrous assail,
But our Robin is a fox indeed, and by his clever scheme,
The sour Scotsman lost his balance and fell forward in the stream.
These enemies would meet again in Nottingham's fair grounds,
Where they drew the bow, put on a show to huge, expectant crowds.
And the arrow split, aye, many times, till the Scotsman took his aim,
And the target disappeared in fire, putting Robin Hood to shame.
Listen ye, O listen ye! For all of ye should
Hear the tale of sweet Clara and our own Robin Hood!
Then Robin and the travellers were quickly locked away
In a tower cell wherein the Sheriff hoped the three would stay,
With the patience of Queen Eleanor when she faced a similar trial,
Clara did rule with grace, while the men disgracefully shouted all the while.
The three were reunited when the plan did come to light,
Whereby the gold taken from all around would put a ship in flight,
The golden arrow pierced the belly of the metal beast,
And so all of merry England can thank Robin for its peace.
Listen ye, O listen ye! For all of ye should
Hear the tale of sweet Clara and our own Robin Hood!
