GUEST,Anne Croucher Tune Req: Nancy Dawson (10) RE: Tune Req: Help: Searching for song Nancy Dawson 15 Dec 04

See how she comes to bring surprise
With joy and pleasure in her eyes
To give delight she always tries
So means my Nancy Dawson

I gather from my laconic 'etc' that there are more verses but as usual I made no record of my source.

It was/is used by a couple of Morris sides - possibly Royton and almost definitely Manley - at least it was in the 1960's. The figure 'cross morris' or 'number four' was also called 'Nancy' even if not danced to the tune.
