Fine knacks for ladies, for 4 voices & lute (Second Book of Songs) Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Fine knacks for ladies, cheap, choice, brave and new,
Good pennyworths but money cannot move,
I keep a fair but for the fair to view,
A beggar may be liberal of love.
Though all my wares be trash, the heart is true.
Verse 2
Great gifts are guiles and look for gifts again,
My trifles come as treasures from my mind,
It is a precious jewel to be plain,
Sometimes in shell the Orient`s pearls we find.
Of others take a sheaf, of me a grain.
Verse 3
Within this pack pins, points, laces and gloves,
And divers toys fitting a country fair,
But in my heart, where duty serves and loves,
Turtles and twins, Court`s brood, a heav`nly pair.
Happy the man that thinks of no removes.
