Original text and translations
What ails my pretty darling?
What ails mine own sweet darling,
Thus sitting all alone so weary?
Say, why is my dear now not merry?
O cease thus to grieve thee,
And take this kiss here to relieve thee.
Up now, arise thee;
O how can my love lie asleeping,
And see yon lusty, lusty leaping?
