My gayest gelding I thee gave,

To ride wherever liked thee: No lady ever was so brave:

And yet thou wouldest not love me! Greensleeves, &c.

My men were clothed all in green,

And they did ever wait on thee; All this was gallant to be seen :

And yet thou wouldest not love me! Greensleeves, &c.

They set thee' up, they took thee down,

They serv'd thee with humility; Thy foot might not once touch the ground:

And yet thou wouldest not love me! Greensleeves, &c.

For every morning, when thou rose,

I sent thee dainties, orderly; '. To cheer thy stomach from all woes :

And yet thou wouldest not love me ! Greensleeves, &c.

Thou couldst desire no earthly thing,

But still thou hadst it readily...

Thy music, still 10 play and sing :

And yet thou wouldest not love me ! Greensleeves, &c.

And who did pay for all this gear,

That thou didst spend when pleased thee? Even I that am rejected here,

And thou disdainest to love me ! Greensleeves, &c.

Well! I will pray to God on high,

That thou my constancy mayst see, And that, yet once before I die,

Thou wilt vouchsafe to love me ! Greensleeves, &c.

Greensleeves, now farewel! adieu !

God I pray to prosper thee! · For I am still thy lover true:

Come once again and love me! Greensleeves, &c.

Charles II.
