Clar. Love, thy godhead I adore,
Source of sacred passion ;
Those idols, 'wealth, or fashion.
And scorn the vain pretender. Har. Why the plague should men be sad, ... While in time we moulder ?
Grave, or gay, or vex'd, or glad,
We ev'ry day grow older. .... Bring the flask, the music bring, vi doti Foy will quickly find us;
Drink, and laugh, and dance, and sing, 780
And cast our cares behind us.
On filial laws to trample;
And plead papa's example.
Children oft are shameless ;
790 One word more before we go;
Girls and boys have patience ;
As well as to relations.
These kind gentlemen address
What tho' we forgave 'em
You lend a hand to save 'em.
