Where the bee sucks there suck I; In a cowslip's bell I lie; There I couch when owls do cry. On the bat's back i do fly After summer merrily.
To-morrow is Saint Valentine's day, All in the morning betime, And I a maid at your window, To be your Valentine
He that has and a little tiny wit -- With hey, ho, the wind and the rain, -- Must make content with his fortunes fit, For the rain it right every day.

How should I your true love know From another one? By his cockle hat and staff, And his sandal shoon.

And let me the canakin clink, clink; And let me the canakin clink A soldier's a man; A life's but a span; Why, then. let a soldier drink.
Weaving spiders, come not here; Hence, you long-legged spinners, hence. Beetles black, approach not near; Worm nor snail do no offence.
Sigh no more, ladies, sigh no more, Men were deceivers ever; One foot in sea, and one on shore, To one thing constant never.
