1. Tomorrow is the marriage day
 Of Mopius and fair Philliday;
 Come shepherds, bring your garlands gay.

2. If love lie in so foul a nest,
 And foulness on so fair a breast,
 What lover may not hope the best?

3. O do not weep, fair Bellamour;
 Though he be gone, there's many more,
 For love has many loves in store.
