Lyrics: William Shenstone

Ye shepherds, give ear to my lay,
And take no more heed of my sheep;
They have nothing to do but to stray,
I have nothing to do but to weep.
Yet do not my folly reprove,
She was fair and my passion begun;
She smiled, and I could not but love,
She is faithless and I am undone.
