Greensleeves (Loreena McKennitt)


Alas, my love, you do me wrong,
To cast me off discourteously.
And I have loved you oh so long,
Delighting in your company.
Chorus:
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.
Chorus:
Thy petticoat of sendal white
With gold embroidered gorgeously;
Thy petticoat of silk and white
And these I bought gladly
Chorus:
