The Ballad of Sir Marmaduke Dorchester

Oh where have you been
My handsome young Marmaduke

I´ve been to the park with my pal
You know his name´s James

Oh where have you been
My darling young duke

I´ve been to the palace with all
My friends you know their names

Oh where have you been
My sweetest kind look

I´ve been to the bookshop near
Buying a curiosity and a tear

Cause I’m weary from waiting
Sister make my dinner soon

And see you tomorrow
My handsome glad Duke.


The ballad of Sir Marmaduke Dorchester, from her book, Selected Ballads and Elegies.
