What are your gifts worth, light bestower?
All lips know your kiss.
What is your word worth, soft-tongued liar?
You have deceived all men.
Why do you follow, woo me, follow,
Like a light-headed girl?
What can I give you? What can you give me?
What do you want with me?
Painted wanton! Tasselled Houri!
Gay in your dress of shame!
You are all men's willing mistress.
What do I want with you?
