A THING I CANNOT DO FOR LOVE
There are the things I wouldn't do,
Even for love, that owns a throne,
I wouldn't cheat on God for man,
Nor slay a man to please a man,
Be her a sylph or heav'nly nymph,
Athena’s maid or Aphrodite’s,
 I wouldn't dare to do a wrong,
 If I should know and knew it's wrong.
There is the crime of loving not,
As there's the pain of loving wrong,
I have my share of what is vile,
And you must never say you don't,
I do commit what isn't fair,
 Like you have hurt a friend or foe,
But what I hold in high esteem,
Is do a good I shouldn't do,
 As there are things I wouldn't do,
 Even for she...
...who sways the heart.
 
I pray I have the will, Milord.
