Abstract

Should he upbraid
I'll own that he prevail,
And sing sweetly as the nightingale...
Say that he frown
I'll say his looks I view,
As morning roses newly tip'd with dew,
As morning roses tip'd with dew.
Say that he frown
I'll say his looks I view
As morning roses tip'd with dew...
As roses tip'd with dew, tip'd with day,
As morning roses tip'd with dew.

Say he be mute,
I'll answer with a smile,
And dance and play,
And wrinkled care beguile,
And dance and play, dance and play,
And wrinkled care beguile.
Should he upbraid I'll own that he prevail,
And sing as sweetly as the nightingale...
Say that he frown, I'll say his looks I view
As morning roses newly tip'd with dew,
I'll dance and play, I'll dance and play
dance and play, dance and play,
And wrinkled care beguile,
And care beguile, I'll dance, play, dance.
