ADIEU, ADIEU, FOREVER.


ADIEU, YOU haughty maiden!
Proud Lydia, adieu;

I will not tarry longer at your side;
My heart now heavy-laden,
with sorrows made by you,
Never more shall thrall me or satiate your pride;
Adieu, adieu, forever.

Adieu, you dusky maiden,
You crafty prude, adieu!
No more the sport of narrow mind I'll be;
Ne'er shall my heart awaken,
To love strains, played by you,
I spurn you from my heart, for a maid of small
degree;
Adieu, adieu, forever.

Adieu, you heartless trifle!
To dally with my love,
When I humbly laid my whole heart, at your feet;
My very soul you'd riflle,
Your vain heart you did prove;
Henceforth, for nobler maidens, this outraged
heart will seek,
Adieu, adieu, forever.
