Song

I

 O blush not so! O blush not so! Or I shall think you knowing; And if you smile the blushing while, Then maidenheads are going. 

II

 There’s a blush for want, and a blush for shan’t, And a blush for having done it; There’s a blush for thought, and a blush for nought, And a blush for just begun it. 

III

 O sigh not so! O sigh not so! For it sounds of Eve’s sweet pippin; By these loosen’d lips you have tasted the pips And fought in an amorous nipping. 

IV

 Will you play once more at nice-cut-core, For it only will last our youth out, And we have the prime of the kissing time, We have not one sweet tooth out. 

V

 There’s a sigh for aye, and a sigh for nay, And a sigh for “I can’t bear it!” O what can be done, shall we stay or run? O cut the sweet apple and share it!
