Ballad To My Lady Green

Aye! this penchant for yers I can't contain
For delight I am to have it in gain.
Thy heart of yers I bid prosperity
For so enraptured it my sanity

The Lady is my desire.
The Lady I must acquire.
Thou Lady is all but my joy
And who other else but my lady.

In storms, In seas I'll not ever succumb
For thy lady's fair face is sweet as rum.
My vows to God I scorn and wish to break
For I shall have ye indeed for my sake.

Thy Love I must acquire in my concern
For thou lady's never been more'st in yearn.
Enchant'd my tongue with words that captivate
Yet thy words have not come to penetrate.

Remain steadfast I shall 'til end be seen
For thy lady's love remainest all green.
Desire'st I more no earthly thing could gift
Thy love whom I so long intend to cheat

In earn'st I pray to God that safe remain
that no woe come claim and have you contain
And thou subdued be in my constancy
that prosper I shall in my constancy

But nay to all efforts I paid on thee
Why must thou flee away from love of me
Cannot but I in my captivity
Rid ye of yer ridiculous treach'ry

Took I thy life whom I treated greenest
Thy dame who remainest in delight'est
Sorrow I weep in my sinful action
Pray God why reach such sinned resolution?

My wife apology I ask of you
And God thy mercy I beseech of you
For I remainest still her lover true
The Lady Green who I never e'er knew.
