Lyrics: William Shakespeare

Lawn as white as driven snow,
Cyprus black as e'er was crow,
Gloves as sweet as damask roses,
Masks for faces and for noses;
Bugle bracelets, necklace-amber,
Perfume for a lady's chamber,
Golden quoifs and stomachers
For my lads to give their dears.
Pins and shining toys of steel,
What maids lack from head to heel:
Come buy of me, lads buy,
Or else your lasses cry.
