Lyrics: Peter Pindar (John Wolcot)

Few are the vales that Colin owns,
And few the flocks those vales that rove;
I court not Delia's heart with wealth,
A nobler price I offer - love!
Yet should the maid refuse to hear,
And basely wed for wealth alone,
Her choice would make my bosom bleed,
But surely could not bless her own.
