1 Begone! dull care,

  I prithee, be gone from me,
  Begone! dull care,
  You and I shall never agree.
  Long time hast thou been tarrying here,
  And fain thou wouldst me kill,
  But i' faith, dull care,
  Thou never shall have thy will.

2 Too much care

  Will make a young man turn grey,
  And too much care,
  Will turn an old man to clay.
  My wife shall dance and I will sing,
  So merrily pass the day,
  For I hold it one of the wisest things
  To drive dull care away.
