Sir Giles' War Song
William Morris, 1858
	
1       Ho! is there any will ride with me,
2         Sir Giles, le bon des barrières?

3       The clink of arms is good to hear,
4     The flap of pennons fair to see;
5         Ho! is there any will ride with me,
6           Sir Giles, le bon des barrières?

7       The leopards and lilies are fair to see;
8     "St. George Guienne" right good to hear:
9         Ho! is there any will ride with me,
10         Sir Giles, le bon des barrières?

11     I stood by the barrier,
12   My coat being blazon'd fair to see;
13       Ho! is there any will ride with me,
14         Sir Giles, le bon des barrières?

15     Clisson put out his head to see,
16   And lifted his basnet up to hear;
17       I pulled him through the bars to ME,
18         Sir Giles, le bon des barrières.
