Come Write Me Down

(1)

Come write me down, ye powers above,

the man that first created love.

For I've a diamond in my eye

wherein all my joys and comforts lie.

Wherein all my joys and comforts lie.

(2)

I will give you gold, I will give you pearl

if you can fancy me, my girl.

Rich costly robes that you shall wear

if you can fancy me, my dear.

If you can fancy me, my dear.

(3)

It's not your gold shall me entice,

to leave off pleasures to be a wife.

For I don't mean or intend at all,

to be at any young man's call.

To be at any young man's call.

(4)

Then go your way, you scornful dame.

Since you've proved false, I'll prove the same.

For I don't care, but I shall find,

some other fair maid to my mind.

Some other fair maid to my mind.

(5)

Oh, stay, young man, don't be in haste.

You seem afraid your time will waste.

Let reason rule your roving mind

and unto you I will prove kind.

And unto you I will prove kind.

(6)

So to church they went the very next day

and were married by asking, as I've heard say.

So now that girl she is his wife,

she will prove his comforts day and night.

She will prove his comforts day and night.

(7)

So now his trouble and sorrow is past.

His joy and comfort has come at last.

That girl to him always said nay.

She will prove his comforts night and day.

She will prove his comforts night and day.
