(English folk song)
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 all my joy,
Greensleeves was my delight,
Greensleeves was my heart of gold,
And who but my lady Greensleeves.
Your vows you’ve broken, like my heart
Oh, why did you so enrapture me?
Now I remain in a world apart
But my heart remains in captivity Refrain
I have been ready at your hand
To grant whatever you would crave
I have both wagered life and land
Your love and good-will for to have Refrain
