A.  I HAVE SEARCHED FOR THE LOVE OF MY HEART,

    I SEARCHED BUT I DIDN'T FIND IT.

    Come, let us go out in the fields,
    Do     Re           Mi-
    let us lodge in the villages.
                         Re  
    Let's go out at dawn to the vineyards,
    Do     Re       Mi-
    let us pick the grapes.
             Re
    I belong to my beloved
            Do      Re          Mi-
    and his whole desire is for me.

C.  Get up quickly, get up my beloved,
    Do    Re     Mi-
    come away my dove.
                      Re
    Winter time has already passed,
        Do           Re             Mi-
    the voice of the turtle dove is heard.
                        Re
    The flowers appear again on the earth,
        Do      Re       Mi- 
    the rain is over and gone.
                        Re
    Get up quickly, get up my beloved,
    Do   Re      Mi-
    come away my dove.

    Mi-               Re
C.  Set me as a seal upon your heart
    Do   Re             Mi-
    as a seal upon your arm.
                    Re
    for love is as strong as death;
    Do      Re        Mi-
    love no flood can drown.
                           Re
    To give for it all the wealth of the house
    Do    Re       Mi- 
    would be to despise it:
                      Re
    Set me as a seal upon your heart,
    Do   Re             Mi-
    as a seal upon your arm.
