Traditional Music Lyrics by Ben Jonson VERSE 1 D A7 D Em D A7 D Drink to me only with thine eyes, and I will pledge with mine, A7 D Em D A7 D Or leave a kiss within the cup, and I'll not ask for wine; G D A7 The thirst that from the soul doth rise, doth ask a drink divine, D A7 D Em D A7 D But might I of Jove's nectar sip, I would not change for thine. VERSE 2 D A7 D Em D A7 D I sent thee late a rosy wreath, not so much hon'ring thee, A7 D Em D A7 D As giving it a hope that there it could not withered be; G D A7 But thou thereon didst only breathe, and sent'st it back to me, D A7 D Em D A7 D Since when it grows and smells, I swear, not of itself but thee.
