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.
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.
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.
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.
