Greensleeves
(poss. Henry VIII of England, 1500's.)

1. Alas, my love, you do me wrong,
To cast me off discourteously.
For I have loved you well and long,
Delighting in your company.

Chorus:
Greensleeves was all my joy
Greensleeves was my delight,
Greensleeves was my heart of gold,
And who but my lady greensleeves.

Drink to Me Only with Thine Eyes
First published after March, 1616, in the poem "To Celia"

1. Drink to me only with thine eyes
And I will pledge with mine.
Or leave a kiss within the cup
And I'll not look for wine.
The thirst that from the soul doth rise
Doth ask a drink divine;
But might I of Jove's nectar sup,
I would not change for thine.

2. I sent thee late a rosy wreath,
Not so much hon'ring thee
As giving it a hope that there
It could not withered be;
But thou thereon did'st only breathe,
And sent'st it back to me,
Since when it grows and smells, I swear
Not of itself, but thee.

("Early One Morning" is an English folk song)

Early one morning,
Just as the sun was rising,
I heard a maid sing,
In the valley below.

Oh, don't deceive me, Oh never leave me.
How could you use a poor maiden so?

Oh, don't deceive me, Oh never leave me.
How could you use a poor maiden so?

(Greensleeves)
Alas, my love, that you should own
A heart of wanton vanity,
So must I meditate alone
Upon your insincerity.

Chorus:
Greensleeves was all my joy
Greensleeves was my delight,
Greensleeves was my heart of gold,
And who but my lady greensleeves.
