Take me with you, and we'll run away;
    be my king and take me to your room.
We will be happy together,
    drink deep, and lose ourselves in love.
    No wonder all women love you!
Women of Jerusalem, I am dark but[a] beautiful,
    dark as the desert tents of Kedar,
    but beautiful as the draperies in Solomon's palace.
Don't look down on me because of my color,
    because the sun has tanned me.
My brothers were angry with me
    and made me work in the vineyard.
    I had no time to care for myself.
