Title: Strike it up, tabor
Composer: Thomas Weelkes
Original text and translations
Strike it up, tabor, and pipe us a favour;
Thou shalt be well paid for thy labour.
I mean to spend my shoesole
To dance about the maypole.
I will be blithe and brisk,
Leap and skip, hop and trip,
Turn about in the rout,
Until very weary joints can scarce frisk.
Lusty Dick Hopkin, lay on with thy napkin;
The stitching cost me but a dodkin.
The morris were half undone,
Wert not for Martin of Compton.
O well, said jigging Alce,
Pretty Jill, stand you still;
Dapper Jack means to smack.
How now, fie, fie, fie, fie, fie, you dance false.
