Alas my love you do me wrong
To cast me out discourteously
For I have loved you so long
Delighting in your company.

Greensleeves is all my joy
And Greensleeves is my delight
Greensleeves, my heart of gold,
And who but my lady, Greensleeves.

I have been ready at your hand
To grant whatever you would crave
I have both waged life and land
Your love and goodwill for to have.

Will I pray to God on high
That thou my love mayst see
And that yet once before I die
That thou will show thy love for me.

Greensleeves, farewell, adieu
I pray to God to prosper thee
For I am still thy lover true
Come once again and love with me.
