  • Long, long ago in King Arthur's day, There was a knight who was a lusty liver. One day as he came home riding from the river. 
  • He saw a maiden walking forlorn Ahead of him, alone as she was born. And of that maiden, spite of all she said, By very force he took her maidenheade.
  • So much petitioning to the king for her, that he condemned the knight to loose his head. But that the queen stepped in and told the knight to find her an answer to her question to save his life from the king.
  • Sad was the knight and sorrowfully sighed, he knocked at every house, searched every place, Yes, anywhere that offered hope of grace. What could women want most? He received many different answers until. 
  • An old women crouched upon the green, tell me what you are looking for sir knight? Dear mother he said, "Alack the day! " "I am as good as dead if I can't say what all women want the most!" "I will answer you but you shall swear to do what I require you next." said the old women "I agree" he said.
  • "Sir knight keep your word and take me for your wife, for well you know that I saved your life" says the old women. The knight says"Take all my goods, and leave my body free." They wed anyway. The knight hated this , but the old women said," If you treat me rightI shall become the young women you wish for.
