Die zet ik bij de "toevalstreffers" !!!
In traditionele engelse folk songs wordt soms ook verhaald van een
As I was a-walking one morning in May
I met a pretty fair maid and unto her did say:
Â“For love I am inclined and I'll tell you me mind
That me inclination lies in your cuckoo's nest.Â”
Â“Me darling,Â” said she, Â“I am innocent and young,
And I scarcely can believe your false deluding tongue.
Yet I see it in your eyes and it fills me with surprise
That your inclination lies in me cuckoo's nest.Â”
Some like a girl who is pretty in the face,
And some like a girl who is slender in the waist.
But give me a girl that will wriggle and will twist:
At the bottom of the belly lies the cuckoo's nest.
Â“Then me darling,Â” says he, Â“if you see it in me eyes,
Then think of it as fondness and do not be surprised.
For I love you, me dear, and I'll marry you, I swear,
If you let me clap me hand on your cuckoo's nest.Â”
Â“Me darling,Â” said she, Â“I can do no such thing,
For me mother often told me it was committing sin
Me maidenhead to lose and me sense to be abused.
So have no more to do with me cuckoo's nest.Â”
Â“Me darling,Â” says he, Â“it is not committing sin.
But common sense should tell you it is a pleasing thing,
For you were brought into this world to increase and do your best
And to help a man to heaven in your cuckoo's nest.Â”
Â“Then me darling,Â” says she, Â“I cannot you deny,
For you've surely won me heart by the roving of your eye.
Yet I see it in your eyes that your courage is surprised,
So gently lift your hand in me cuckoo's nest.Â”
So this couple they got married and soon they went to bed
And now this pretty fair maid has lost her maidenhead.
In a small country cottage they increase and do their best
And he often claps his hand on her cuckoo's nest.
