Night Blackmore's - Past Time With Good Company lyrics

Past time with good company
I love, and shall until I die
Grutch who lust, but none deny
So God be pleased, thus live will I

For my pastance, hunt, sing and dance
My heart is set
All goodly sport, for my comfort
Who shall me let?

Youth must have some dalliance
Of good or ill some pastance
Company methinks then best
All thoughts and fancies to digest

For idleness, is chief mistress
Of vices all
Then who can say, but mirth and play
Is best of all?

Past time with good company
I love, and shall until I die
Grutch who lust, but none deny
So God be pleased, thus live will I

For my pastance, hunt, sing and dance
My heart is set
All goodly sport, for my comfort
Who shall me let?

Company with honesty
Is virtue, vices to flee
Company is good and ill
But every man hath his free will

The best ensue, the worst eschew
My mind shall be
Virtue to use, vice to refuse
Thus shall I use me
