I will no more come to thee
Language: English 
I will no more come to thee
  That flout’st me when I woo thee;
  Still ty hy thou criest
And all my lovely rings and pins denyest.
  O say, alas, what moves thee
  To grieve him so that loves thee?
Leave, alas, then, ah leave tormenting
And give my burning some relenting.

Lyrics from the Song-Books of the Elizabethan Age, ed. by A. H. Bullen, London, John C. Nimmo, 1887, page 48.
