The Song Book
XIV
COME, LIVE WITH ME
There will we sit upon the rocks, And see the shepherds feed their flocks, By shallow rivers, to whose falls Melodious birds sing madrigals.
There will I make thee beds of roses, And twine a thousand fragrant posies ; A cap of flowers, and a kirtle, Embroider'd all with leaves of myrtle.
A gown made of the finest wool, Which from our pretty lambs we pull; Slippers lined choicely for the cold, With buckles of the purest gold.
A belt of straw and ivy buds, With coral clasps and amber studs : And if these pleasures may thee move, Come, live with me, and be my love. The shepherd swains shall dance and sing For thy delight each May morning ; If these delights thy mind may move, Then live with me, and be my love.
Chappell. The Words attributed to Marlowe. Tune from Corkme's Second Book of Agres. 1612 ; & a MS. discovered by Sir John Hawkins.
