Lyrics: Anon

Pleasure's enchanted ground I'll tread,
Where love and youthful fancy lead,
For life as yet is in her spring,
As yet I'll toy and laugh and sing.

When cynics rail, or pedants frown,
My smile repays their angry brow;
Their rigid maxims I disown,
I hate the gloomy, selfish crew.
For life as yet is in her spring,
As yet I'll toy and laugh and sing.

Be mine the joys of social life,
Where innocence and peace reside,
Still may good nature vanquish strife,
And honour reign each action's guide.

While Phyllis is as kind as fair
Fly discontent and sullen care;
Her smiles can make perpetual spring,
With her I'll toy, to her I'll sing.

John Hindle
(1761 - 1796)
