My lady love is fair as spring,
A paragon of love divine.
For her I would do anything
But first, another jug of wine!
My fair one is the rarest gem.
My love for her shall never fail.
I am the luckiest of men.
Sirrah, another mug of ale!
For pulchritude unparalell'd
My sweetest friend's a lovely lass.
So fair a form I've ne'er beheld.
Good host, please bring another glass!
Her lips so sweet, her eyes so bright,
Such beauty I must needs adore.
I'd hasten there this very night
If I could just get off the floor.
