Lyrics: Anon

Merrily play on the tabor and pipe,
For here we come all to dancing.
You, bonny Kate, shall be Colin's mate;
O, there will be skipping and prancing.
"Oh Colin, oh Colin", says buxom Kate,
"My love for Colin is woundy great;
Come Colin, sweet Colin, and Colin shall see,
My Colin I love, if my Colin loves me".
