What is love? Lady thou woundest,
thou woundest, mine heart.
Oh I know not whither thou art,
or wherefore thou tearest us apart
If ever thou beest mine, giv'st me a sign
What is love? Lady thou woundest,
thou woundest, mine heart.
I know not what can granted be,
for doth not my freedom rest with thee?
What shall remain if we are twain?
Alack, I beseech
What is love? Lady thou woundest,
thou woundest, mine heart.

      @James Morgan Paet cyninge faeringe raedingum: The king goes to Reading. 3 years of Old English during a BA degree, and that's all I can say!!!! Even the placename, in this case Reading, changes depending on whether its dative, accusative, nominative etc. And all extant Anglo-Saxon literature comes from only 4 volumes, which were preserved in monasteries in the Italian and Swiss Alps by Irish monks, as the Vikings plundered the libraries of English monasteries.

    Legend has it that the minstrel who wrote this song was spurned by a lady, and ended up in the dungeon where other fellow minstrels picked up the torch (and added 'Nonny') to spread his story of unrequited love like wildfire.

    The grand misuse of Early Modern English in the especially comments but also in the lyrics upsets me greatly. There is a system, you can't just add -st and -eth to random words to make it sounds "old-timey". Also, this is the English of the 16th Century, which is very very different from that of the Medieval Period. What is love? Lady thou woundest, thou woundest, mine heart. Oh I know not *where* thou art, [whither indicates motion towards or simply means "to where".] or wherefore thou tearest us apart *?* If ever thou *be* mine, *give* me a sign. [beest is not a word, the verb to-be conjugates as "art" in the second person singular (thou) indicative, but since there is an "if" it takes the subjunctive instead, which is simply "be". "Giv'st" or "givest" is in the indicative mood; since this is a command, the imperative mood must be used, which is simply "give". Lastly, though this is not strictly necessary, "give thou me a sign" sounds more natural in the EM English] What is love? Lady thou woundest, thou woundest, mine heart. I know not what can granted be, for doth not my freedom rest with thee? What shall remain if we are twain? Alack, I beseech *thee* [typically, beseech takes a pronoun] What is love? Lady thou woundest, thou woundest, mine heart.
