Inconstancy In Love

Tune—"Duncan Gray."

     Let not Woman e'er complain
     Of inconstancy in love;
     Let not Woman e'er complain
     Fickle Man is apt to rove:
     Look abroad thro' Nature's range,
     Nature's mighty Law is change,
     Ladies, would it not seem strange
     Man should then a monster prove!

     Mark the winds, and mark the skies,
     Ocean's ebb, and ocean's flow,
     Sun and moon but set to rise,
     Round and round the seasons go.
     Why then ask of silly Man
     To oppose great Nature's plan?
     We'll be constant while we can—
     You can be no more, you know.
