Under the Greenwood Tree

Verse 1
Under the greenwood tree,
Who loves to lie with me,
And turn his merry note
Unto the sweet birds throat
Come hither come hither come hither
Come hither come hither come hither {second repeat my addition}
Here shall he see
No enemy
But winter and rough weather

Verse 2
Who doth ambition shun
And loves to live in the sun
Seeking the food he eats
And pleased with what he gets,
Come hither come hither, come hither
Here shall he see
No enemy
But winter and rough weather

Bridge
If it do come to pass
That any man turn ass
Leaving his wealth and ease,
A stubborn will to please
Ducdame, ducdame, ducdame, **
Here shall he see
Gross fools as he,
And if he will come to me.

** An invocation to call fools into a circle (according to Jaques) (2.6.49)

    I ordered this music, and received it on Sunday, but I was hoping that it would come with the piano part that is in the recording, does that music exist somewhere? I need it for a performance in class. Thank you.
