CANST thou leave me thus, my Katy,
Canst thou leave me thus, my Katy;
Well thou know'st my aching heart,
And canst thou leave me thus, for pity.------

Is this thy plighted, fond regard,
Thus cruelly to part, my Katy:
Is this thy faithful swain's reward------
An aching, broken heart, my Katy.----
Canst thou &c.

Farewel! and ne'er such sorrows tear
That fickle heart of thine, my Katy!
Thou mayest find those will love thee dear---
But not a love like mine, my Katy.----
Canst thou &c.
