Alas, my love, you do me wrong,
To cast me off discourteously.
And I have loved you oh so long,
Delighting in your company.
Greensleeves was my delight,
Greensleeves was my heart of gold,
Greensleeves was my heart and joy
And who but my lady greensleeves.
I have been ready at your hand,
To grant whatever thou would crave,
I have waged both life and land,
Your love and goodwill for to have.
Thy petticoat of sendal white
With gold embroidered gorgeously;
Thy petticoat of silk and white
And these I bought gladly
