Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

The sport is an emblem of love,
Where women are caught as the play,
Now far out of reach they remove,
Then daring run full in your way.
No fawn, though by nature so shy,
Pursued, will elude you so fast;
Yet shunned, they'll approach you so nigh,
You're certain to catch them at last.
