Ardennes
Song
William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
 

  UNDER the greenwood tree
  Who loves to lie with me,
  And turn his merry note
  Unto the sweet bird’s throat,
Come hither, come hither, come hither:        5
          Here shall he see
          No enemy
But winter and rough weather.
 
  Who doth ambition shun,
  And loves to live i’ the sun,        10
  Seeking the food he eats,
  And pleas’d with what he gets,
Come hither, come hither, come hither:
          Here shall he see
          No enemy        15
But winter and rough weather.
 
  If it do come to pass,
  That any man turn ass,
  Leaving his wealth and ease,
  A stubborn will to please,        20
Ducdàme, ducdàme, ducdàme:
          Here shall he see
          Gross fools as he,
An if he will come to me.
