Lyrics: Christopher Marlowe

Come live with me and be my love,
And we will all the pleasures prove,
That grove and valley, hill and field
Or woods and sleepy mountains yield.

And I will make thee beds of roses
And twine a thousand fragrant posies,
A cap of flowers and rural kirtle
Embroidered all with leaves of myrtle,

A belt of straw and ivy buds,
A coral clasp and amber studs;
And if these pleasures may thee move,
Then live with me and be my love.

The shepherd swains shall dance and sing
For thy delight each May morning.
If joys like these thy mind may move,
Then live with me and be my love.
