Lyrics
Adam lay ybounden, bounden in a bond,
Four thousand winter thought he not to,O long;
And all was for an apple, and apple that he to,Ok,
As clerkes finden written in their bo,Ok.
Ne had the apple taken been, the apple taken been,
Ne had never Our Lady ybeen heavene Queen.
Blessed be the time that apple taken was:
Therfore we moun singen: Deo Gratias.
