One of a set of six airs from the Beggar's Opera harmonized for three voices for concert performance.

Lyrics: John Gay

Can love be controlled by advice,
Will Cupid our mothers obey?
Tho' my heart were as frozen as ice,
At his flame 'twould have melted away.
When he kissed me so closely he pressed,
'Twas so sweet that I must have complied;
So I thought it both safest and best
To marry for fear you should chide.

Samuel Webbe (junr.) (arr.)
(1768 - 1843)

Can love be controlled by advice?

(S.T.B.)
