Somerset folkevise 1800-tallet - Tekst: Ukendt

On yonder hill there stands a creature;
who she is I do not know.
I'll go and court her for her beauty;
she must answer Yes or No.
O, No John! No John! No John! No!

My father was a Spanish captain
went to sea a month ago.
First he kissed me, then he left me
bid me always answer No.
O, No John...

O, Madam, in your face is beauty,
on your lips red roses grow.
Will you take me for your lover?
Madam, answer Yes or No.
O, No John ...

O, Madam, I will give you jewels,
I will make you rich and free,
I will give you silken dresses.
Madam, will you marry me?
O, No John ...

O, Madam, since you are so cruel,
and that you do scom me so,
if I may not be your lover,
Madam, will you let me go?
O, No John ...

Then I will stay with you for ever,
if you will not be unkind.
Madam, I have vowed to love you,
would you have me change my mind?
O, No John ...

O, hark! I hear the church bells ringing,
will you come and be my wife?
Or, dear Madam, have you settled
to live single all your life?
O, No John ...
