Alas my love you do me wrong
To cast me off discourteously;
And I have loved you so long
Delighting in thy company.
Greensleeves was my delight
Greensleeves was my all my joy
Greensleeves was my heart of gold
And who but my Lady Greensleeves
I have been ready at your hand
To grant whatever you would crave;
I have both waged life and land
Your love and good will for to have.
Well, I will pray to God on High,
That thou my constancy mayst see,
And that yet once before I die,
Thou wilt vouchsafe to love me.
