Lyrics

Lyrics Direct Translation Poetic Translation
Mery yt ys whil sumer ylast  Merry it is while summer lasts Merry it is while summer lasts
With fugheles song. With birds' songs. With birds in song.
Oc! Now negheth windes blast  Ah! Now approach blasts of wind But then comes the cold wind's blast
And weder strong. And strong weather. And weather strong.
Ey! Ey! What this night is long Ay! Ay! This night is so long Ei, ei! how this night is long,
And I wit wel muchel wrong, And I, having been done much wrong, And I, being done great wrong,
Sorwe and murne and fast. Sorrow and mourn and fast. Sorrow and mourn and fast.
