Song: The Lark in the Morning

Steeleye Span again with a traditional song, “The Lark in the Morning.” A young woman is trying to persuade her shepherd lover that it’s not time to get up yet.

This isn’t quite the song I was looking for. There’s another, “The Jolly Ploughboy,” that I suspect is the origin of the English term “to roger.”
