The rocks and the mountains shall sooner remove
And the sea shall flame on fire
If from my love shall retire,
And there's nothing I desire but innocent love.

If innocent love is all your request,
And you in earnest, I thought you were in jest,
I'll adore you with pleasure,
With kisses out of measure,
With joy, peace & pleasure we both shall be blessed

This couple they're married, and live very happy
Enjoying one another with pleasures so canty,
The rocks they shall melt,
And the mountains shall remove,
Ere ever I prove false to the woman I love.
