* ConspiracyTheories: "Little Sir Hugh" is based on a seven-hundred-year-old medieval legend (that of the fictional St. Hugh of Lincoln) about the Blood Libel, the assertion that Jews stole away good Christian children for nefarious purposes. The band edited out the anti-Semitic aspects of the song.

* HypocriticalHumor: There's a very dark example in "Edward". The title character repeatedly lies about where the blood on his sword came from. He eventually admits that it's [[spoiler:his brother's]], who he slew... for lying.

* ObfuscatingDisability: The traditional folk song "[[https://mainlynorfolk.info/steeleye.span/songs/thebeggar.html The Beggar]]":
-->Sometimes we call at a rich man's hall,\\
To beg for bread and beer.\\
Sometimes we're lame, sometimes we're blind,\\
Sometimes too deaf to hear.

* LyricalDissonance: "Saucy Sailor" is (on paper) a rollicking comic tale about a sailor who tries to woo a girl, gets rejected, but then mentions that he's got money, whereupon she accepts him -- whereupon ''he'' rejects ''her'' and cheerfully swaggers off saying he'll marry someone else. The first half of Steeleye's version (the half with the words) is set to an eerie and rather menacing backdrop, and the second half is a sad little melody played on the piano with ghostly wordless vocals.
