My lady may I have this dance
Forgive a knight who knows no shame
My lady may I have this dance
And lady may I have your name

You danced upon a soldier's arm
And I felt the blade of love so keen
And when you smiled you did me harm
And I was drawn to you, my Queen

Now these boots may take me where they will
Though they may never shine like his
There is no knight I would not kill
To have my lady's hand to kiss
