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 pierced through.

So cold is she, and yet so fair;

That all who see, do bow the knee;

And worship in despair.

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 pierced through.
So cold is she, and yet so fair;
That all who see, do bow the knee;
And worship in despair.
