1  Shoot, false Love, I care not,
Spend thy shafts, and spare not.
Fa la la.
I fear not I thy might,
And less I weigh thy spite,
All naked I unarm me,
If thou canst now shoot and harm me.
So lightly I esteem thee,
As now a child I deem thee.
Fa la la.

2  Long thy bow did fear me,
While thy pomp did blear me.
Fa la la.
But now I do perceive,
Thy art is to deceive.
And ev'ry simple lover
All thy falsehood can discover.
Then weep Love, and be sorry
For thou hast lost thy glory.
a la la.
