“She has beauty, but still you must keep your heart cool;
“She has wit, but you mustn’t be caught, so;”
Thus Reason advises, but Reason’s a fool,
And ’tis not the first time I have thought so,
’Tis not the first time I have thought so.
“She is lovely; then love her, nor let the bliss fly;
“’Tis the charm of youth’s vanishing season;”
Thus Love has advised me and who will deny
That Love reasons much better than Reason,
Love reasons much better than Reason.
