The non-pareil

William Boyce (1710-1779)

The non-pareil

Text by Anonymous

Though Chloe's out of fashion,
Can blush and be sincere,
I'd toast her in a bumper
If all the belles were here.
(verse repeated)

What though no diamonds sparkle
About her neck and waist,
With every shining virtue
The lovely maid is graced.

In modest plain apparel,
No patches, paint, or airs,
In debt alone to Nature,
An angel she appears:
(repeat verse)

From gay coquets high-finished
My Chloe takes no rules,
Nor envies them their conquests,
The hearts of all the fools.

Who wins her must have merit,
Such merit as her own,
The graces all possessing,
Yet knows not she has one:
(repeat verse)

Then grant me, gracious heaven,
The gifts you most approve,
And Chloe, charming Chloe,
Will bless me with her love.
