    Ah, wonderful: “Greensleeves” and also “Scarborough Fair” are among my favourite English folk songs! I didn’t know that the first one was written by Henry VIII. And then even in German — magnificent!

    O weh, mein Lieb’, tust Unrecht mir
    grob fort zu stoßen mich im Streit
    so lange hielt ich treu zu Dir
    voll Glück an Deiner Seit’.
    Greensleeves war all mein Freud’
    Greensleeves war mein Entzücken
    Greensleeves war mein gülden Herz
    Und wer außer Lady Greensleeves?
