Song, Intended to Have Been Sung in the Comedy of 'She Stoops to Conquer'

INTENDED TO HAVE BEEN SUNG IN THE COMEDY OF " SHE STOOPS TO CONQUER."

A H , me! when shall I marry me?
Lovers are plenty; but fail to relieve me.
He, fond youth, that could carry me,
Offers to love, but means to deceive me.
But I will rally and combat the ruiner:
Not a look, not a smile shall my passion discover.
She that gives all to the false one pursuing her,
Makes but a penitent, and loses a lover.
