SIR GILES' WAR-SONG

  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.
