"Drink to Me Only with Thine Eyes" (karaoke)

"Drink to Me Only with Thine Eyes" (sheet music)



Drink to me only with thine eyes,

And I will pledge with mine;

Or leave a kiss within the cup,

And I'll not ask for wine.

The thirst that from the soul doth rise,

Doth ask a drink divine;

But might I of Jove's nectar sip,

I would not change for thine.


I sent thee late a rosy wreath,

Not so much hon'ring thee.

As giving it a hope that there

It could not wither'd be:

But thou thereon didst only breathe

And sent it back to me;

Since when it grows and smells, I swear,

Not of itself but thee.
