Air My lodging is on the cold groundA
-
-
I-
-
My Chloris mark how green the grovesB
The primrose banks how fairC
The balmy gales awake the flowersD
And wave thy flaxen hairC
-
II-
-
The lav'rock shuns the palace gayE
And o'er the cottage singsF
For nature smiles as sweet I weenG
To shepherds as to kingsF
-
III-
-
Let minstrels sweep the skilfu' stringH
In lordly lighted ha'I
The shepherd stops his simple reedJ
Blythe in the birken shawK
-
IVL
-
The princely revel may surveyL
Our rustic dance wi' scornG
But are their hearts as light as oursD
Beneath the milk white thornG
-
VL
-
The shepherd in the flow'ry glenG
In shepherd's phrase will wooM
The courtier tells a finer taleN
But is his heart as trueM
-
VIL
-
These wild wood flowers I've pu'd to deckO
That spotless breast o' thineG
The courtier's gems may witness loveL
But 'tis na love like mineG
