From "Songs, duets and other compositions by Doctor Harington of Bath never before published. Studio fallente laborem. London. Printed for the author & sold by the engraver E. Riley No. 8 Strand J. Preston No. 97 Strand Lintern's Bath &c". 1800.
Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

When first sweet love my heart possessed,
I then with Anna's smiles was blessed;
Each morn did wake to new delight,
And cares were hushed in sleep each night.
But now the pleasing dream is o'er,
And cruel Anna smiles no more.
Now farewell to love's delight;
Gone each happy day and night.
