Because I'm apparently in a folk music mood tonight.



Alas, my love, you do me wrong
To cast me off discourteously
For I have loved you well and long
Delighting in your company

Greensleeves was all my joy
Greensleeves was my delight
Greensleeves was my heart of gold
And who but my lady greensleeves

Alas, my love, that you should own
A heart of wanton vanity
So must I meditate alone
Upon your insincerity

Greensleeves was all...

Your vows you've broken, like my heart
Oh, why did you so enrapture me?
Now I remain in a world apart
But my heart remains in captivity

Greensleeves was all...

If you intend thus to disdain
It does the more enrapture me
And even so, I still remain
A lover in captivity

Greensleeves was all...

I have been ready at your hand
To grant whatever thou wouldst crave
I have both wagered life and land
Your love and good-will for to have

Greensleeves was all...

Thou couldst desire no earthly thing
But still thou hadst it readily
Thy music still to play and sing
And yet thou wouldst not love me

Greensleeves was all...

I bought thee kerchiefs for thy head
That were wrought fine and gallantly
I kept thee at both board and bed
Which cost my purse well-favoredly

Greensleeves was all...

I bought thee petticoats of the best
The cloth so fine as it might be
I gave thee jewels for thy chest
And all this cost I spent on thee

Greensleeves was all...

Thy smock of silk, both fair and white
With gold embroidered gorgeously
Thy petticoat of sendal right
And these I bought thee gladly

Greensleeves was all...

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

Greensleeves was all...

They set thee up, they took thee down
They served thee with humility
Thy foot might not once touch the ground
And yet thou wouldst not love me

Greensleeves was all...

'Tis 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

Greensleeves was all...

Ah, Greensleeves, now farewell, adieu
To God I pray to prosper thee
For I am still thy lover true
Come once again and love me

Greensleeves was all...

I love that song. But I went to find it on Kazaa, and typed in "Greensleeves" and I got heaps of porn. Is there something I don't know about that phrase?
