Reel 275, Item 10
King William Was King James’ Son
King William was King James’ son,
Upon the royal race he run,
Upon his breast he wore a star,
Pointing a way to the ocean far.
Go choose your east, go choose your west,
Go choose the one that you love best;
If (she’s, he's) not here, to take (her, his) part, Choose another with all your heart.
Down upon this carpet you must kneel,
As sure as the grass grows in the field;
Salute your bride and kiss her sweet,
Then you may rise up on your feet.
