One of those catches that is more lubricious in performance than the anodyne lyrics might suggest. It was published in Warren's fourteenth collection, 1774. This edition comprises a modern realisation, and a statement of the piece in its original specialised format.

Endless pleasures we press from the vine;
Dull spleen is the extract of tea.
