1. The Gods have heard my vows,
fond Lyce whose fair brows
won't scorn with such disdain,
my love, my tears, my pain.
Fa la la la la la fa la la.

2. But now those springtime roses
are turn'd to winter poses,
to rue and thyme and sage
fitting that shrivell'd age.
Fa la la la la la fa la la.

3. Now youths with hot desire
see that flameless fire
which erst your hearts so burn'd
quick into ashes turn'd.
Fa la la la la la fa la la.
