This is from an old midi file that I digitized to my computer in April, 2003. Two versions were spliced together and effects added this August 2011. The song is to repeat 5 times for the 5 stanzas and each time I have added a different effect.

About the song
Edward Doughtie says "This poem may have been one of the many inspired by Marlowe's Hero and Leander."

This is from an old midi file that I digitized to my computer in April, 2003. Two versions were spliced together and effects added this August 2011. The song is to repeat 5 times for the 5 stanzas and each time I have added a different effect.

I don't know of any recording of this song that can be found on CD, LP, 45 or 78. Harald Lillmeyer and I made both made midi files of this song at about the same time but Harald published his long before I have published this here.
Lyrics
VIII. HERO, CARE NOT THOUGH THEY PRY

1. Hero, care not though they pry,
2. I will love thee till I die.
3. Jealousy is but a smart
4. That torments a jealous heart.
5. Crows are black that were white
6. For betraying loves delight.
Crows are black that were white
For betraying loves delight.

7. They that love to find a fault
8. May repent what they have sought.
9. What the fond eye hath not viewed,
10. Never wretched heart hath rued.
11. Vulcan then proved a scorn
12. When he saw he wore a horn.
Vulcan then proved a scorn
When he saw he wore a horn.

13. Doth it then by might behove
14. To shut up the gates of love?
15. Women are not kept by force
16. But by nature's own remorse.
17. If they list they will stray;
18. Who can hold that will away?
If they list they will stray;
Who can hold that will away?

19. Jove in golden shower obtained,
20. His love in a tower restrained.
21. So perhaps if I could do
22. I might hold my sweet love too.
23. Gold, keep out at the door,
24. I have love that conquers more.
Gold, keep out at the door,
I have love that conquers more.

25. Wherefore did they not suspect
26. When it was to some effect?
27. Every little glimm'ring spark
28. Is perceived in the dark.
29. This is right; owlets' kind
30. See by night, by day be blind.
This is right; owlets' kind
See by night, by day be blind.
