Tune Robin AdairA

-
I-
-
While larks with little wingB
Fann'd the pure airA
Tasting the breathing springB
Forth I did fareA
Gay the sun's golden eye-
Peep'd o'er the mountains high-
Such thy morn did I cry-
Phillis the fairA
-
II-
-
In each bird's careless songC
Glad I did shareA
While yon wild flowers amongD
Chance led me thereA
Sweet to the opening dayE
Rosebuds bent the dewy sprayE
Such thy bloom did I sayE
Phillis the fairA
-
III-
-
Down in a shady walkF
Doves cooing wereG
I mark'd the cruel hawkF
Caught in a snareA
So kind may fortune beH
Such make his destinyH
He who would injure theeH
Phillis the fairA
