Lyrics: Christopher Marlowe

Come live with me and be my love
And we will all the pleasure prove,
That hills and valleys, dales and fields,
And all the craggy mountain yields
There will we sit upon the rocks,
And see the shepherds feed their flocks,
By shallow rivers, to whose falls
Melodious birds sing madrigals.

A belt of straw and ivy buds,
With coral clasps and amber studs.
And if those pleasures may thee move,
Then come with me and be my love.
The shepherd swains shall dance and sing
For thy delight each May morning;
If those delights thy mind may move,
Then live with me and be my love.
