No. 7 - Song - Martin - "The Brake and Bracken"

MIDI file

Martin: I've sought the brake and bracken through and through,
The thorny thicket and the meadow too,
But nowhere could I find a trace of you;
Of course, for you had something else to do.
To feed some fancy in some pastures new,
Oh maiden, faithless, fickle and untrue!
Oh maiden, faithless, fickle and untrue!
I set such store on thee,
Thought myself sure of thee,
I'll have no more of thee!
So fare thee well!
I set such store on thee,
Thought myself sure of thee,
I'll have no more of thee!
So fare thee well!
   
  For they who into Cupid's quiver dip,
From sport to earnest naturally slip,
Grow weary soon of nothing but a sip,
And after something more substantial trip.
They may begin upon a finger tip,
But they are sure to end upon a lip!
But they are sure to end upon a lip!
I set such store on thee,
Thought myself sure of thee,
I'll have no more of thee!
So fare thee well!
I set such store on thee,
Thought myself sure of thee,
I'll have no more of thee!
So fare thee well!
