Alas, my love, ye do me wrong,
...To cast me off disc'urteously:
And I have loved you so long,
...Delighting in your company.
I have been ready at your hand,
....To grant what ever you would crave.
I have both waged life and land,
...Your love and good will for to have.
Greensleeves was all my joy,
...Greensleeves was my delight:
Greensleeves was my heart of gold,
...And who but Lady Greensleeves.
