Sung by James Dodd, in the character of Fribble, in a production of Garrick's Miss in her Teens, at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, c.1767.
Lyrics: David Garrick

No ice so cold, so hard as I,
Till warmed and softened by your eye;
And now my heart dissolves away
In dreams by night and sighs by day.
No brutal passion fires my breast,
Which loathes the object when possessed;
But one of harmless, gentle kind,
Whose joys are centred in the mind.
Then take with me love's better part;
His downy wing but not his dart.
