Tune: Drink to me only with thine eyes
SITE SOURCE: Sydney Folklore – SECTION 9: Demon drink and teetotalism

Wink at me with Thine Eyes

Wink at me only with thine eyes
And I will wink with mine
Blow me a kiss but through thy veil
And I will not repine

I sent a note the other day
My note the butcher bore
Oh, if that note touch’d any chord
Some token I implore

Heed not thy mistresses awful frown
The sermons scarce begun
For winking haeps of time there’ll be
Ere this discovery is done

Wink at me only with thine eyes
And I will wink with mine
Medusa like, thy mistress glares
And I for-see a shine.
