"Greensleeves" as written by Daniel Scott and Trad....
Greensleeves was my delight
Greensleeves was all my joy
Greensleeves was my heart of Gold
And who but my Lady Greensleevevs

My men were clothed all in green
And they did ever wait on thee
All this was gallant to be seen
And yet thou would not love me

Thou couldn't desire no earthly thing
But still thou hadst it readily
Thy music still to play and sing
And yet thou would not love me

Greensleeves was my delight
Greensleeves was all my joy
Greensleeves was my Heart of Gold
And who but my Lady Greensleeves

Alas my love you do me wrong
To cast me off discourteously
And I have loved you so long
Delighting in thy company
