It Was a Lover and His Lass

It Was a Lover and His Lass

It was a lover and his lass
  With a hey and a ho and a hey nonni no
  With a hey nonni nonni no
That o'er the green cornfields did pass

  In springtime, in springtime
  In springtime, the only pretty ring time
  When the birds do sing
  Hey ding a ding a ding
  Hey ding a ding a ding
  Hey ding a ding a ding
  Sweet lovers love the spring

Between the acres of rye...
These pretty country folks would lie...
And therefore take the present time...
For love is crowned with the prime...
___________
quoted by Shakespeare in "As you Like It"
