X:1 T:I Care Not For These Ladies C:Trad Z:Webmaster K: W:1 W:I care not for these ladies W:That must be wooed and praised, W:Give me kind Amarillis, W:The wanton countrey maide. W:Nature art disdaineth, W:Her beauty is her own W: W:(chorus) W:Who when we court and kiss, W:She cries forsooth let go, W:But when we come where comfort is W:She never will say no. W: W:2 W:If I love Amarillis W:She gives me fruit and flowers, W:But if we love these ladies W:We must give them golden showers, W:Give them gold that sell love, W:Give me the nutbrowne lass. W: W:3 W:These ladies must have pillows, W:And beds by strangers wrought, W:Give me a bower of willowes, W:Of moss and leaves unbought, W:And fresh Amarillis W:With milk and honie fed. % % % % %
