Loue for such a cherry lip,
would be glad to pawne his Arrowes,
Venus heere to take a sip,
would sell her Doues andteeme of Sparrowes,
but shee shall not so,
hey no no ny no ny no,
none but I this lip must owe,
hey no no ny no ny no.

Did Ioue see this wanton eye,
Ganymed should wayte no longer:
Phebe heere one night to lye,
would change her face, and looke much younger.
but shee shall not see,
hey no ny, no ny no.
none but I this lip must owe
hey no ny, no ny no.
