Ho lad, fetch me bow of even tiller,
The one of the silken string hung
near me leather quiver.

Bring mine arrows straight and true,
those crafted so cunningly by you
Send ye word to Master Jon Little

request of him kindly to bring his fiddle,
and meet with me by Miller's pond
where we will stout cudgels whittle
Then

to the abode of Alan A Dale. and should ye crost paths
with Forester Scarlett that boastful scoundrel
that likeable and trustworthy varlet

Pray ask that he join us near the "Gallows Oak"
and bring if he might, other forester folk for
I've a scheme to set the sheriff's ill gained taxes free.

Though we do need a 'scape goat captured and endure
a temporary loss of liberty while spying out where the
dastardly sheriff hast stashed the ill gained tax ye see.

One that will walk freely into the sheriff's dark abode
to spy out the treasure room.

Beautiful, although to be truthful there was much that I didn't quite understand. I understood that it was the story of Robinhood.
