Recording Information
Ballad Title Loves Triumph over Bashfulness: / OR, The Pleas of HONOUR and CHASTITY over-ruled. / Being a pleasant New Play-Song by way of Dialogue between Celia and Strephon. / When Love takes up his Arms, all force must yield, / He will be Victor, his must be the Field: / Vain is Resistance, no force could e're withstand / The swift wing'd shafts sent by his nimble hand: / Celia brings Honour, Chastity, and fame, / Not dreaming but they can resist the same; / But that they were not proof the Nymph soon found, / For through them all, Love did her bosome wound.
Tune Imprint To a Pleasant new Play-House Tune.
Standard Tune Title At the Foot of a Willow; On the Bank of a River
