about

Moss & Jones' take on classic folk song Reynardine (Roud 397).

lyrics

(Traditional)

One evening as I rambled along the springing thyme I overheard a young woman converse with Reynardine.
She said, "young man, be civil; my company forsake, for in my own opinion I fear you are a rake."
"Oh no, no rake am I," he cried, "brought up on Venus' train! And I'm searching for concealment from all the judge's men!"
Her rosy cheeks and ruby lips; they lost their former dye, as she fell into his arms then, oh, on that mountainside.
They had but kissed just once, or twice, when she came to again and so modestly she asked of him, "oh pray tell me your name?"
He said, "if by chance you look for me you'll not by chance me find, for I'll be in my castle; enquire of Reynardine."
Now day and night she follows him, his teeth so white they shine as he leads her o'er the mountains; that sly, bold Reynardine.
