King Orfeo Alva Love Burns in Me Child Ballad #19
King Orfeo is related to the thirteenth century poem Sir Orfeo. Both the ballad and the poem tell the story of Orfeo rescuing his wife from the fairy queen.
DER lived a king inta da aste, Refrain:Scowan ürla grün Der lived a lady in da wast. Refrain:Whar giorten han grün oarlac Dis king he has a huntin gaen, Hes left his Lady Isabel alane. Oh I wis yed never gaen away, For at your hame is dol an wae. For da king o Ferrie we his daert, Has pierced your lady to da hert. And aifter dem da king has gaen, But whan he cam it was a grey stane. Dan he took oot his pipes ta play, Bit sair his hert wi dol an wae. And first he played da notes o noy, An dan he played da notes o joy. An dan he played da god gabber reel, Dat meicht ha made a sick hert hale. Noo come ye in inta wir ha, An come ye in among wis a. Now hes gaen in inta der ha, An hes gaen in among dem a. Dan he took out his pipes to play, Bit sair his hert wi dol an wae. An first he played da notes o noy, An dan he played da notes o joy. An dan he played da god gabber reel, Dat meicht ha made a sick hert hale. Noo tell to us what ye will hae: What sall we gie you for your play? What I will hae I will you tell, An dats me Lady Isabel. Yees tak your lady, an yees gaeng hame, An yees be king ower a your ain. Hes taen his lady, an hes gaen hame, An noo hes king ower a his ain.
