My Heart Was So Free
(words, John Gay)

My heart was so free,
It rov'd like the Bee,
'Till Polly my Passion requited;
My heart was so free,
It rov'd like the Bee,
'Till Polly my Passion requited;
I sipt each Flower,
I chang'd ev'ry Hour,
I sipt each Flower,
I chang'd ev'ry Hour,
But here ev'ry Flower is united.
But here ev'ry Flower is united.

Additional verses from the movie version:

I conquered and won,
I kiss'd and was gone
I spun like a leaf in the weather;
I conquered and won,
I kiss'd and was gone
I spun like a leaf in the weather;
But Polly's a wife
To last me for life
But Polly's a wife
To last me for life
And we shall go spinning together,
And we shall go spinning together.

(and, at the end, as MacHeath rides triumphantly
     into the distance:)

My heart is so free
It roves like the bee
The morning is waiting and eager;
My heart is so free
It roves like the bee
The morning is waiting and eager;
The rope I have spurn'd
To freedom return'd
The rope I have spurn'd
To freedom return'd
By an opera made by a beggar
By an opera made by a beggar!

From the Beggar's Opera
tune: Pray, Fair One, Be Kind
