The Two Magicians

She looked out of the window as white as any milk

And he looked in at the window as black as any silk

Hello, hello, hello, hello you coal blacksmith

You have done me no harm

You never shall have me maidenhead

That I have kept so long

I'd rather die a maid

Ah, but then she said and be buried all in me grave

Than to have such a nasty, husky, dusky, fusky, musky

Coal blacksmith

A maiden I will die

She became a duck, a duck all on the stream

And he became a water dog and fetched her back again

She became a star, a star all in the night

And he became a thundercloud and muffled her out of sight

She became a rose, a rose all in the wood

And he became a bumble bee and kissed her where she stood

She became a nun, a nun all dressed in white

And he became a canting priest and prayed for her by night

She became a trout, a trout all in the brook

And he became a feathered fly and catched her with his hook


She became a corpse, a corpse all in the ground

And he became the cold clay and smothered her all around
