Pearsall's eight-part reworking of a five-part ballet by Thomas Morley. The second verse was not included by Pearsall, and has been imported editorially from the original model.
Lyrics: Thomas Morley

No, no, no, no Nigella,
Let who list prove thee,
I cannot love thee.
Have I deserved
Thus to be served?
Well then, content thee,
If thou repent thee.

No, no, no, no Nigella.
In sign I spite thee;
Lo, I requite thee.
Henceforth complaining
Thy love's disdaining,
Sit, thy hands wringing,
Whilst I go singing.
