For Cupid lives within her eyes.
 
For Cupid lives within her eyes.
 
And if she open them on you,  
 
And if she open them on you,  
Your hearts will quick be pierced through.

Your hearts will quick be piercèd through.  
 
So cold is she, and yet so fair;  
 
So cold is she, and yet so fair;  
 
That all who see, do bow the knee;  
 
That all who see, do bow the knee;

Take heed, ye shepherd swains, beware!
In yonder grove the fair Sirena lies.
O! wake her not, nor venture there:
For Cupid lives within her eyes.
And if she open them on you,
Your hearts will quick be piercèd through.
So cold is she, and yet so fair;
That all who see, do bow the knee;
And worship in despair.
