1  My love is fair, my love is gay,
And fresh as be the flowers in May,
And of my love my roundelay
Concludes with Cupid's curse.
They that do change old love for new,
Pray gods they change for worse.

2  My love can dance, my love can sing,
My love can many a pretty thing,
And of her lovely praises sing
My merry roundelay,
Sing, sing my merry roundelay,
Amen to Cupid's curse.
They that do change old love for new,
Pray gods they change for worse.
