Past Time With Good Company
Past time with good company
I love, and shall until I die
Grudge who lust, but none deny
So God be pleased, thus live will I
For my pastance, hunt, sing and dance
My heart is set
All goodly sport for my comfort
Who shall me let?

Youth must have some dalliance
Of good or ill some pastance
Company methinks then best
All thoughts and fancies to digest
For idleness is chief mistress
Of vices all, than who can say
But mirth and play
Is best of all?

Past time with good company
I love, and shall until I die
Grudge who lust, but none deny
So God be pleased, thus live will I
For my pastance, hunt, sing and dance
My heart is set
All goodly sport for my comfort
Who shall me let?

Company with honesty
Is virtue, vices to flee
Company is good and ill
But every man has his free will
The best ensue, the worst eschew
My mind shall be:
Virtue to use, vice to refuse
Thus shall I use me!

Traditional by King Henry VIII
