There is a lady sweet and kind,
Was never a face so pleas'd my mind;
I did but see her passing by,
And yet I love her till I die.

Her graceful motion, her sweet smile,
Her wit, her voice, my heart beguile,
My heart beguile, I know not why,
And yet I love her till I die.

Cupid is winged and doth range,
Her country so my love doth change:
But change she earth or change she sky,
Yet will I love her till I die.
