Henry Purcell (1659-1695): A health to the nut-brown lass Z 240, catch a 4 voci. Deller Consort, dir. Alfred Deller.

A Health, a health to the Nut-brown Lass
with the Hazle Eyes,
She that has good Eyes, has also good Thighs,
let it pass, let it pass.
As much to the livelier Gray,
They’re as good by night as day,
She that has good Eyes, has also good Thighs,
Drink away, drink away.
I’le pledge, Sir, I’le pledge,
What ho! Some wine, here! Some wine;
To mine, and to thine; to thine, and to mine;
The Colours are Divine;
But Oh! the Black Eyes,
the Black, give me as much again,
And let it be Sack.
She that has good Eyes, has also good Thighs,
And a better knack.
