Title: Our country swains
Composer: Thomas Weelkes
Original text and translations
Our country swains in the morris dance,
Thus woo and win their brides:
Will for our town, for Kate the next prance;
The hobby horse, at pleasure, the frolic rides.
I woo with tears, and ne'er the near.
I die in grief, and live in fear.
