Why, Why Tell The Lover

Melody - "Caledonian Hunt's delight"
Line

Robert Burns, 1795

Why, why tell thy lover
Bliss he never must enjoy?
Why, why undeceive him,
And give all his hopes the lie?
O why, while fancy, raptur'd slumbers,
Chloris, Chloris all the theme,
Why, why would'st thou, cruel
Wake thy lover from his dream?
