Title: A country pair
Composer: Thomas Weelkes
Original text and translations
A country pair were walking all alone,
And wantonly were talking to each one:
Quoth she, I will not hate nor love thee;
Ah me, said he, what wilt thou do?
Take time and thou shalt prove me,
Alas! Quoth he, I know not how.
What tho' I wed, I am thy friend,
Then kiss me, Kate, and so an end.
