S O N G V.

Tune, Randly House.


MY dear, know ye the reason why
This day that I came here?
It was on purpose to obtain
The love of You, my dear.


Amongst all other ladies fair,
Like you there is but few;
Therefore, that is the reason why
I plac'd my love on you.


Some say, you're come of noble blood,
My dear, I know that's true;
But I came of Adam's seed;
Remember so are you.


It's said 'tis riches you do want,
And you slight me therefore;
But I have what's ordained for me;
Surely you have no more.
