1  Dainty fine sweet nymph delightful,
 While the Sea aloft is mounting,
 Sit we here our loves recounting.
 Fa la la.
 With sugared gloses,
 Among these roses.
 Fa la la.

2  Why alas are you so spiteful,
 Dainty nymph but O too cruel.
 Wilt thou kill thy dearest jewel?
 Fa la la.
 Kill then and bliss me,
 But first come kiss me.
 Fa la la.
