Composer: John Mundy
Original text and translations
Turn about and see me,
How lustily I spring,
As joyfully as may be,
As glad as anything.
If you will ask the cause and why
I mean to tell you by and by.
She lives, that I do honour most,
Far passing all the rest;
A mighty prince and excellent,
Sweet Eglentine the best.
Then joy with me, both great and small,
Her life brings joy unto us all.
