Transcription

Flam. ‘Tis true I’m caressed by the witty,

The envy of all the fine beaux,

The pet of the court and the city,

But still, I’m the lover of Rose.

Rose. Country sweethearts, oh, how I despise!

And oh! How delighted I am

To think that I shine in the eyes

Of the elegant – sweet – Mr. Flam.


Flam. Allow me. (Offers to kiss her)


Rose. Pray don’t be so bold, sir (Kisses her.)

Flam. What sweets on that honied lip hang!

Rose. Your presumption, I know, I should scold, sir,

But I really can’t scold Mr. Flam.

Both. Then let us be happy together,

Content with the world as it goes,

An unchangeable couple for ever,

Mr. Flam and his beautiful Rose.
