Greensleeves was all my joyGreensleeves was my delight:Greensleees was my heart of gold,And who but my LadieGreensleeves. I have been readie at your hand,to grant what ever you would craveI have both waged life and land,your love and good will for to have. A long, long time ago...I can still rememberHow that music used to make me smile.And I knew if I had my chanceThat I could make those people danceAnd, maybe, they’d be happy for a while.But february made me shiverWith every paper I’d deliver.Bad news on the doorstep;I couldn’t take one more step. These are examples of secular music, with lyrics from a Renaissance song on the left and lyrics from a modern day song on the right. Back End
