    And wilt thou leave me thus?

    Say nay, say nay, for shame,

    To save thee from the blame

    Of all my grief and grame;

    And wilt thou leave me thus?

    Say nay, say nay!

    And wilt thou leave me thus,

    That hath loved thee so long

    In wealth and woe among?

    And is thy heart so strong

    As for to leave me thus?

    Say nay, say nay!

    And wilt thou leave me thus,

    That hath given thee my heart

    Never for to depart,

    Nother for pain nor smart;

    And wilt thou leave me thus?

    Say nay, say nay!

    And wilt thou leave me thus

    And have no more pity

    Of him that loveth thee?

    Hélas, thy cruelty!

    And wilt thou leave me thus?

    Say nay, say nay!
