Song in As You Like It

William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
    UNDER 1 the greenwood tree,
    Who loves to lie with me,
    And tune his merry note
    Unto the sweet bird’s throat,
Come hither, come hither, come hither!        5
      Here shall we see
      No enemy
But winter and rough weather.
    Who doth ambition shun
    And loves to live i’ the sun,        10
    Seeking the food he eats
    And pleased with what he gets,
Come hither, come hither, come hither!
      Here shall he see
      No enemy        15
But winter and rough weather.
