Treasure And Betrayal Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

It was on the trail of riches
We set off upon that day
To the castle keep of Carisbrooke
To where the treasure lay

And soon I found the diamond
At the bottom of the well
But that traitor of a Turnkey
To his death below he fell

"Have a care, have a care
'Twas evilly come by and no good will you find there
Have a care, have a care
'Twas evilly stolen, only pain and sorrow there, have a care

Then across the sea to Holland
With the jewel in my hand
Where we went to sell our treasure
At the house of Aldebrand

When he said it was no diamond
Through the window it was tossed
But that wicked man was lying
And we were caught in a double-cross

Have a care, have a care,
'Twas evilly come by and no good will you find there
Have a care, have a care
'Twas evilly stolen, only pain and sorrow there, have a care

What shall we do with the boy who's stealing?
What shall we do with the boy who's stealing?
What shall we do with the boy who's stealing
Early in the morning?

Throw him into jail, let him rot forever
Throw him into jail, let him rot forever
Throw him into jail, let him rot forever
Early in the morning

Have a care, have a care
'Twas evilly come by and no good will you find there
Have a care, have a care
'Twas evilly stolen, only pain and sorrow there, have a care
