Greensleeves
[unknown] Lyrics


GREENSLEEVES
(poss. Henry VIII of England, 1500's.)

Alas, my love, you do me wrong,
To cast me off discourteously.
For I have loved you well and long,
Delighting in your company.

Greensleeves was all my joy
Greensleeves was my delight,
Greensleeves was my heart of gold,
And who but my lady greensleeves.

Your vows you've broken, like my heart,
Oh, why did you so enrapture me?
Now I remain in a world apart
But my heart remains in captivity.

I have been ready at your hand,
To grant whatever you would crave,
I have both wagered life and land,
Your love and good-will for to have.

If you intend thus to disdain,
It does the more enrapture me,
And even so, I still remain
A lover in captivity.

My men were clothed all in green,
And they did ever wait on thee;
All this was gallant to be seen,
And yet thou wouldst not love me.

Thou couldst desire no earthly thing,
but still thou hadst it readily.
Thy music still to play and sing;
And yet thou wouldst not love me.

Well, I will pray to God on high,
that thou my constancy mayst see,
And that yet once before I die,
Thou wilt vouchsafe to love me.

Ah, Greensleeves, now farewell, adieu,
To God I pray to prosper thee,
For I am still thy lover true,
Come once again and love me.

Alas my love you do me wrong
To cast me off discourteously;
And I have loved you oh so long
Delighting in your company.

Greensleeves was my delight,
Greensleeves my heart of gold
Greensleeves was my heart of joy
And who but my lady Greensleeves.

I have been ready at your hand
To grant whatever thou would'st crave;
I have waged both life and land
Your love and goodwill for to have.

Greensleeves was my delight,
Greensleeves my heart of gold
Greensleeves was my heart of joy
And who but my lady Greensleeves.

Thy petticoat

Greensleeves (Tradução)

Ai, infelizmente, meu amor, você me faz mal
Me descarta indelicadamente
Pelo longo poço de amor que eu tive por você
Deliciosamente em sua companhia

(chorus)
Manga verde era toda a minha alegria
Manga verde era todo o meu deleite
Manga verde era o meu coração de ouro
E quem menos do que a minha senhora manga verde?

Suas promessas você as tem quebrado, como o meu coração
Oh, por quê você me arrebatou então?
Agora eu permaneço em um mundo separado
Mas meu coração perdura em cativeiro

(chorus)

Eu estive na sua mão
Para ascender absolutamente tudo que você implorasse
Eu tenho ambas apostas de vida e terra
Seu amor e proveito - era para se ter

(chorus)

Se você tenciona consequentemente você desdenha
Isso faz com que eu me arrebate mais
E ainda assim, eu permaneço
Uma amante em cativeiro

(chorus)

Meus homens eram vestidos por completo em verde
E eles esperaram em Ti
E todo esse explêndido era para ser visto
E ainda assim tu não me amas

(chorus)

Tu não poderias desejar coisas mundanas
Mas ainda assim, tu não estavas preparado
Tua música ainda é tocada e cantada
E tu ainda não me amas

(chorus)

Bem eu vou rezar bem alto a Deus
Que tu, meu constante que não posso vê-lo
E que ainda que eu um dia antes que eu morra
Tu murchas e garante me amar

(chorus)

Ah,manga verde, agora despeço,adeus
A Deus eu rezo, prosperar-te
Pelo que eu sou tua verdadeira amante
Vanha mais uma vez e me ame

(chorus)

Greensleaves lyrics
Alas, my love, you do me wrong
To cast me off discourteously
And I have loved you oh so long
Delighting in your company

Greensleeves was all my joy
Greensleeves was my delight
Greensleeves was my heart of gold
And who but my lady Greensleeves

If you intend to be this way
It does the more enrapture me
And even so I still remain
A lover in captivity

Greensleeves was all my joy
Greensleeves was my delight
Greensleeves was my heart of gold
And who but my lady Greensleeves

Greensleeves, now farewell, adieu
God, I pray he will prosper thee
For I am still thy lover true
Come once again and love me

Greensleeves was all my joy
Greensleeves was my delight
Greensleeves was my heart of gold
And who but my lady Greensleeves

@Guy Salva Henry VIII was king of England (and Wales) only, not the whole island.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten
Son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but
have eternal life. (John 3:16)

Mert úgy szerette Isten e világot, hogy az ő egyszülött
Fiát adta, hogy valaki hiszen ő benne, el ne vesszen, hanem
örök élete legyen. (János 3:16)

Henry VIII: This song
Also Henry VIII: marries Jane Seymour like a week later

It’s Elizabethan

Henry Horner

So what? It's the quality of the music we listen to. Not any political or sexual implications that count.

Henry Horner

Well execution to make her his ex was cheaper than the legal fees for a divorce. Besides, he needed a son to replace him after his own demise.
