SONG: YES, MARY ANN, I FREELY GRANT

Yes, Mary Ann, I freely grant,
    The charms of Henry's eyes I see;
But while I gaze, I something want,
    I want those eyes -- to gaze on me.

And I allow, in Henry's heart
    Not Envy's self a fault can see:
Yet still I must one wish impart,
    I wish that heart -- to sigh for me.
