Fragment,-Why, Why Tell The Lover

Tune-"Caledonian Hunt's delight."

      Why, why tell thy lover      Bliss he never must enjoy"?      Why, why undeceive him,      And give all his hopes the lie?      O why, while fancy, raptur'd slumbers,      Chloris, Chloris all the theme,      Why, why would'st thou, cruel-      Wake thy lover from his dream?
