Pastime with good company


A good old favourite. Yup, I know some of the words are odd, but I am sure they are right...

Pastime with good company

Pastime with good company
I love and shall until I die
Gruch who lust but none deny
So God be pleased thus will I die
For my pastime
Hunt, sing and dance
My heart is set
All goodly sport
For my comfort
Who shall me let

Youth must have some dalliance
Of good or ill some pastance
Company methinks then best
All thoughts and fancies to digest
For idleness is chief mistress
Of vices all then who can say
But mirth and play is best of all

Company with honesty
Is virtue - vices to flee
Company is good and ill
But every man hath his free will
The best ensue, the worst eschew
My mind shall be - virtue to use
Vice to refuse - thus shall I use me.
