Colin Instructed

 Young Colin was as stout a boy 
As ever gave a maiden joy; 
But long in vain he told his tale 
To black-eyed Biddy of the Dale.
Ah why, the whining shepherd cried, Am I alone your smiles denied? I only tell in vain my tale To black-eyed Biddy of the Dale.
True Colin, said the laughing dame, You only whimper out your flame, Others do more than sigh their tale To black-eyed Biddy of the Dale.
He took the hint &c.
