For Jillian of Berry she dwells on a hill, And she hath good beer and ale to sell, And of good fellows she thinks no ill, And thither will we go now, now, now, And thither will we go now. And when you have made a little say, You need not ask what is to pay, But kiss your hostess and go your way, And thither will we go now, now, now, And thither will we go now.
