​Batchelor's Hall

This song is by Steeleye Span and appears on the album All Around My Hat (1975).

I rode seven horses all to death
I rode them till they had no breath
I wore five saddles to the trees
None of those girls will marry me.

Those women will fret, those women will fuss
They spend five hours before their glass
The devil take all, I'll have no money at all
Always stay single, keep Batchelors' Hall.
Stay stay close to my door

Batchelors' Hall, Batchelors' Hall,
I'll always stay single, keep Batchelors' Hall.

The women round here, they live by the door
They hear but a word, and repeat it twice o'er
Then they add it as much as they can
Always stay single a bachelor man.

Batchelors' Hall is always the best
If you're sick drunk or sober it's always a rest
No woman to scold you, no children to bawl
Always stay single, keep Batchelors' Hall.
Stay stay close to my door

Batchelors' Hall, Batchelors' Hall,
I'll always stay single, keep Batchelors' Hall.
