The epicure ; What can we poor females do ; Dulcibella, whene'er I sue for a kiss ; When Myra sings ; Elegy upon the death of Queen Mary ; For love ev'ry creature ; There ne'er was so wretched a lover as I ; In all our Cinthia's shining sphere ; While bolts and bars my day control ; Trip it, trip it in a ring ; Go tell Amynta, gentle swain ; Turn then thine eyes ; Julia, your unjust disdain ; I spy Celia ; While you for me alone had charms (The 9th ode of Horace imitated : a dialogue betwixt the Poet and Lydia) ; Above the tumults of a busy state ; Alas, how barbarous are we ; Silvia, thou brighter eye of night ; See where she sits ; Oh! what a scene does entertain my sight ; A dialogue between Charon and Orpheus--Three part songs: A drinking song ; When the cock begins to crow ; Sweet Tyraness, I now resign ; The blind beggar's song.
Two-part songs: When gay Philander left the plain ; Adieu to his mistress ; Though my mistress be fair ; A dialogue betwixt Alexis and Sylvia ; When lovely Phillis thou art kind ; A serenading song ; A saw fair Cloris all alone ; Sylvia, 'tis true you're fair ; Come, dear companions of th'Arcadian fields ; A health to King James II ; Saccharissa's gown old ; Teucer's voyage ; Oft am I by the women told ; How sweet is the air and refreshing ; Fill the bowl with rosy wine ; Is some kind dream ; Love and despair ; A dialogue between Strephon and Dorinda ; Here's to thee, Dick ; How pleasant is this flowery plain ; Let Hector, Achilles and each brave commander ; Were I to choose the greatest bliss ; Nestor, who did to thrice man's age ; Lost is my quiet forever ; A dialogue between Thirsis and Daphne ; Fair Cloe my breast so alarms
Plague on you for a fop ; Prithee ben't so sad and serious ; Room for th' express ; Since the Duke is return'd (Upon the Duke's return) ; Since time so kind to us does prove ; Sir Walter enjoying (The scolding) ; Soldier, soldier, take off thy wine ; Sum up all the delights ; The surrender of Lim'rick ; 'Tis easy to force ; 'Tis too late for a coach ; 'Tis women makes us love ; To all lovers of music ; To thee and to a lass ; True Englishmen drink ; Under a green elm ; Under this stone ; When V and I together met ; Who comes there ; Wine in a morning ; Would you know how we met ; Young Collin Cleaving ; Young John the gardener (The servant's ball) ; Fie, nay prithee, John ; Full bags ; The glass was just tim'd ; The miller's daughter riding to the fair ; since women so false ; Tom making a manteau--
Catches: An ape, a lion, a fox and an ass ; As Roger last night ; Bring the bowl and cool Nantz ; Call for the reckoning ; Come, let us drink ; Come, my heart ; Down, down with Bacchus ; Drink on, till night be spent ; God save our sovereign Charles ; Great Apollo and Bacchus ; He that drinks is immortal ; A health to the nut-brown lass ; Here's a health, let it pass ; Bartholomew Fair ; I gave her cakes ; If all be true that I do think ; A catch upon Charleroy ; The jovial drinker ; Let us drink to the blades ; The Macedon youth ; My lady's coachman, John (The pensioner) ; Now England's great council ; Now, now we are met ; Of all the instruments that are ; Once in our lives ; Once, twice, thrice, I Julia tried ; One industrious insect and the sweetness of th' other ; Pale faces, stand by
