The False Knight Upon the Road

"Oh where are you going to?"
said the False Knight upon the road
"Oh I'm going to my school."
said the wee boy and still he stood
"What is that upon your back?"
said the False Knight upon the road
"Ah weel, it is my books!"
said the wee boy and still he stood

Oh, what have you got there?
I have got my bread and cheese!
Oh won't you give me some?
No, ne'r a bite or crumb!

I wish you was on the sands.
Yes, and a good staff in my hands!
I wish you was on the sea.
And a good ship under me!

And the ship to sink.
An inch away from shore!
I think I hear a bell.
And it rings you straight to Hell!
