Hark to the lay on ev'ry spray,
The pretty tuneful roundelay.
The birds proclaim this day's return,
Their little breasts with transports burn,
And all for love.

So does my song awake the morn,
So do I bless the day's return;
Your valentine repeats the lay
And joins the pretty tuneful roundelay,
And all for love.
