From Brooks' second set of glees, printed in London and Bath, c.1798.

Lyrics: Anon. probably the composer

Young Damon was a shepherd boy,
Fal lal lal lal lal la
And much he loved to kiss and toy.
Fal lal lal lal lal la
Longtime he woo'd a rustic maid,
Who was of love most sore afraid,
For when he sighed she only said:
Fal lal lal lal lal la.

With jocund heart one morn he rose,
Fal lal lal lal lal la
Clad in his best and Sunday clothes.
Fal lal lal lal lal la
That he this damsel's heart might gain,
He talk'd of love, he talked of pain,
And sung an artless lovesick strain:
Fal lal lal lal lal la.

This maiden's heart 'gan to relent,
Fal lal lal lal lal la
She gave her hand with free consent.
Fal lal lal lal lal la
More happy loves were seldom seen
To trip along the verdant green,
As Damon and his sylvan queen.
Fal lal lal lal lal la.

James Brooks
(1760 - 1809)
