Sing John Ball

Who’ll be the Lady, and who will be the Lord, when we are ruled by the love of one another?
Who’ll be the Lady, and who will be the Lord, in the light that is coming in the morning?

Sing John Ball! (And tell it to them all!) Long live the day that is dawning,
I’ll crow like a cock, I’ll carol like a lark, in the light that is coming in the morning.

2. Eve is the Lady and Adam is the Lord, when we are ruled by the love…
3. All shall be ruled by fellowship, I say, when we are ruled by the love…
4. Labour and spin for fellowship, I say, Labour and spin for the love…

Notes:
A folk song by Sydney Carter about a radical 14th Century English priest who travelled around delivering sermons which called for social equality (for which he was eventually hanged.)
