lyrics

Come all you fair and tender girls
That flourish in your prime
Beware, beware, keep your garden fair
Let no man steal your thyme

For when at last your thyme is gone
He'll care no more for you
And every place where your thyme was waste
Shall spread all o'er with rue

O woman is a branchy tree
And a man a single wand
And from her branches carelessly
He takes what he can find
