Album: The Hazards Of Love (2009)

  • My true love went riding out
    in white and green and gray
    past the pale of Offa's wall
    where she was wont to stray

    And there she came upon
    a white and wounded fawn
    Singing: Oh, the hazards of love

    She, being full of charity,
    a credit to her sex
    sought to right the fawn's hind legs
    when here her plans were vexed

    The taiga shifted strange
    the beast began to change
    Singing: Oh, the hazards of love
    Singing: Oh, oh oh oh
    The hazards of love
    You'll learn soon enough
    The prettiest whistles won't wrestle the thistles undone
    Undone

    Fifteen lithesome maidens lay
    along in their bower
    fourteen occupations paid
    to pass the idle hour

    But Margret heaves a sigh
    Her hands clasped to her thigh

    Singing: Oh, oh
    The hazards of love
    Singing:
    Oh, oh oh oh
    The hazards of love
    you'll learn soon enough
    The prettiest whistles won't wrestle the thistles undone
    undone
    undone
    undone
    undone
