Deller Consort - Greensleeves lyrics

Alas, my love, you do me wrong,
To cast me off discourteously,
And I have loved you so 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.

I have been ready at your hand
To grant whatever you would crave,
I have both waged life and land,
Your love and good will to have.

Chorus

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

Chorus

Well, I pray to God on high,
That thoumy constancy may'st see,
For I am still thy lover true;
Come once again and love me.

Chorus
