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.
