Title: Tan-ta-ra cries Mars
Composer: Thomas Weelkes
Original text and translations
Tantara, rantara, cries Mars on bloody rapier,
Fa la, fa la, fa la, fa la, cries Venus in her chamber.
Toodle loodle loo, cries Pan that cuckoo,
With bells at his shoe, and a fiddle too.
Aye me, but I, alas, lie weeping,
For death has slain my sweeting,
