1. Those dainty daffadillies
   Which gave to me sweet Phillis.
   Fa la la.
   Those to me alas of life and soul deprived,
   My spirits they have revived.
   Fa la la.

2. As their fair hue excelleth,
   In her so beauty dwelleth.
   Fa la la.
   And ever to behold them they invite me,
   So sweetly they delight me.
