Méav - 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 delight
Greensleeves was my heart of gold
And who but my Lady Greensleeves

Thy smock of silk both fair and white
With gold embroidered gorgeously
Thy petticoat of sendle white
And these I bought thee gladly

Greensleeves was all my joy
Greensleeves was delight
Greensleeves was my heart of gold
And who but my Lady Greensleeves

I bought thee kerchiefs to thy head
And wool fine and gallantly
I kept thee at both board and bed
Which cost my purse well-favoredly

I have been ready at your hand
To grant whatever you would crave
I have waged both life and land
Your love and goodwill for to have

Greensleeves was all my joy
Greensleeves was delight
Greensleeves was my heart of gold
And who but my Lady Greensleeves

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