Weep eyes, break heart!
My love and I must part.
Cruel fate true love do soonest sever.
O, I shall see thee never, never.
O, happy is the maid whose life takes end,
Ere it knows parents' frown or loss of friend.
Weep eyes, break heart!
My love and I must part.
Cruel fate true love do soonest sever.
O, I shall see thee never, never.
