by Nicholas Udall (1505 - 1556)

I mun be married a Sunday
Language: English 
I mun be married [a]1 Sunday,
Whosoever shall come that way,
I mun be married a Sunday.

Roister Doister is my name,
A lusty brute I am the same,
I mun be married a Sunday.

Christian Custance have I found,
A widow worth a thousand pound,
I mun be married a Sunday.

Custance is as sweet as honey,
I her lamb and she my coney;
I mun be married a Sunday.

When we shall make our wedding feast,
There shall be cheer for man and beast;
I mun be married a Sunday.
