Though Amaryllis Dance In Green

Lyrics from Poets' Corner (on the internet)

Though Amaryllis dance in green
Like Fairy Queen,
And sing full clear;
Corinna can, with smiling, cheer.
Yet since their eyes make heart so sore,
Hey ho! chill love no more

My sheep are lost for want of food,
And I so wood
That all the day
I sit and watch a herd-maid gay,
Who laughs to see me sigh so sore;
Hey ho! chill love no more.

Her loving looks, her beauty bright,
Is such delight
That all in vain
I love to like, and lose my gain
For her, that thanks me not therefore.
Hey ho! chill love no more.

Ah, wanton eyes! my friendly foes
And causes of woes,
Your sweet desire
Breeds flames of ice, and freezing fire.
Ye scorn to see me weep so sore:
Hey ho! chill love no more.

Love ye who list, I force him not:
Sith God it wot,
The more I wail,
The less my sighs and tears prevail:
What shall I do, but say therefore,
Hey ho! chill love no more.

The lyrics posted original are from some other song:

I've never been in love before
Now all at once it's you
It's you forever more

I've never been in love before
I thought my heart was safe
I thought I knew the score

But this is wine
That's all too strange and strong
I'm full of foolish song
And out my song must pour

So please forgive this helpless haze I'm in
I've really never been in love before

So this is wine
That's all too strange and strong
I'm full of foolish song
And out my song must pour

So please forgive this helpless haze I'm in
I've never really been in love before
