"Take a hold of me when I pass by.
Hold me tight to you.
Promise me you won't let go
No matter what they do.
"They'll turn me into a frightening beast,
And things to give alarm,
But underneath I'm your own love still
And I will not do you harm.
"They'll turn me to a lion.
They'll turn me into a snake.
They'll turn me into a burning thing,
All to get your grip to break.
Tam Lin, traditional ballad
