To A Proud Beauty

2 And you, too, fancied me,
3Your heart hath too divided been
4 A constant heart to be.
5And like the gay and youthful knight,
6 Who loved and rode away,
7Your fleeting fancy takes a flight
8 With every fleeting day.
9So let it be as you propose,
10 Tho' hard the struggle be;
11'Tis fitter far -- that goodness knows! --
12 Since we cannot agree.
13Let's quarrel once for all, my sweet,
14 Forget the past -- and then
15I'll kiss each pretty girl I meet,
16 While you'll flirt with the men.
