Black is the colour of my true love's hair.
Her lips are something wond’rous fair,
The purest eyes and the daintiest hands,
I love the grass whereon she stands.

I love my love and well she knows,
I love the ground whereon she goes.
The prettiest face, the daintiest hands,
I love the grass whereon she stands.
