King William was King James’s son;
Upon the royal race he run.
He wore a star upon his breast,
Pointing to the one that he loved best.
Choose your partner.
Now that you’re married, you must be good.
Make your husband split your wood,
Split it fine and carry it in;
Then you may have a kiss again.
(Mrs. Apple: “And then the girl steps out into the ring, and the boy chooses a partner.”)
