<poem>
 +
Phillis is my only joy,
 +
Faithless as the winds and seas;
 +
Sometimes forward, sometimes coy,
 +
Yet she never fails to please.
 +
If with a frown I am cast down,
 +
Phillis smiling and beguiling,
 +
Makes me happier than before.
 +
 
 +
Though alas! too late I find
 +
Nothing can her fancy fix,
 +
Yet the moment she is kind,
 +
I forgive her all her tricks;
 +
Which tho’ I see I can’t get free;
 +
See deceiving, I believing,
 +
What can lovers wish for more?

Phillis is my only joy,
Faithless as the winds and seas;
Sometimes forward, sometimes coy,
Yet she never fails to please.
If with a frown I am cast down,
Phillis smiling and beguiling,
Makes me happier than before.

Though alas! too late I find
Nothing can her fancy fix,
Yet the moment she is kind,
I forgive her all her tricks;
Which tho’ I see I can’t get free;
See deceiving, I believing,
What can lovers wish for more?
