Greensleeves

[ Index ]

Plug-in notwendig / Plug-in required  [ Download MIDI melody ]

  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.

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

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

    Greensleeves was all ...

  3. Your vows you've broken, like my heart,
    Oh, why did you so enrapture me?
    Now I remain in a world apart
    But my heart remains in captivity.

    Greensleeves was all ...

  4. If you intend thus to disdain,
    It does the more enrapture me,
    And even so, I still remain
    A lover in captivity.

    Greensleeves was all ...

  5. I have been ready at your hand,
    To grant whatever thou wouldst crave;,
    I have both wagered life and land,
    Your love and good-will for to have.

    Greensleeves was all ...

  6. Thou couldst desire no earthly thing,
    But still thou hadst it readily.
    Thy music still to play and sing;
    And yet thou wouldst not love me.

    Greensleeves was all ...

  7. I bought thee kerchiefs for thy head,
    That were wrought fine and gallantly;
    I kept thee at both board and bed,
    Which cost my purse well-favoredly.

    Greensleeves was all ...

  8. I bought thee petticoats of the best,
    The cloth so fine as it might be;
    I gave thee jewels for thy chest,
    And all this cost I spent on thee.

    Greensleeves was all ...

  9. Thy smock of silk, both fair and white,
    With gold embroidered gorgeously;
    Thy petticoat of sendal right,
    And these I bought thee gladly.

    Greensleeves was all ...

  10. My men were clothed all in green,
    And they did ever wait on thee;
    All this was gallant to be seen,
    And yet thou wouldst not love me.

    Greensleeves was all ...

  11. They set thee up, they took thee down,
    They served thee with humility;
    Thy foot might not once touch the ground,
    And yet thou wouldst not love me.

    Greensleeves was all ...

  12. 'Tis 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 was all ...

  13. Ah, Greensleeves, now farewell, adieu,
    To God I pray to prosper thee,
    For I am still thy lover true,
    Come once again and love me.

    Greensleeves was all ...
