From "Calliope or English Harmony. A Collection of the most celebrated English and Scots songs", London, 1746. Many of the songs from this collection were probably composed for the London pleasure gardens, particularly Vauxhall.
Lyrics: Anon

Oh Cælia, recall thy lost hours,
And duty and reason obey;
Despise love, and all those false powers
That first gave young Strephon away.
Believe me, the swain is a rover,
Nor constant to any can be;
Then prithee discard such a lover,
And once more resolve to be free.
