Sir Giles War-Song

by
 Ho! is there any will ride with me,
Sir Giles, le bon des barrières?

The clink of arms is good to hear,
The flap of pennons fair to see;
Ho! is there any will ride with me,
Sir Giles, le bon des barrières?

The leopards and lilies are fair to see;
"St.
George Guienne" right good to hear: Ho! is there any will ride with me, Sir Giles, le bon des barrières? I stood by the barrier, My coat being blazon'd fair to see; Ho! is there any will ride with me, Sir Giles, le bon des barrières? Clisson put out his head to see, And lifted his basnet up to hear; I pulled him through the bars to ME, Sir Giles, le bon des barrières.
