From "Twelve sentimental catches and glees for three voices melodized by the Right Honble The Earl of Abingdon, the accompaniments for the harp or pianoforte by the celebrated Dr. Haydn".
Lyrics: Anon

Ye little loves that round her wait,
To bring me tidings of my fate,
As Delia on her pillow lies,
Ah gently whisper "Strephon dies".

If this will not her pity move,
And the proud fair disdains to love,
O smile and say "'Tis all a lie,
And haughty Strephon scorns to die".
