No words have been found for this song-air. The alternate titles are variants of this melody, save for the "Dissipated Youth," which is the name Bunting affixed to the piece in his MS. He had previously printed a tune called "Dissipated Youth" in his 1796 collection but there is no connection between this melody and his earlier one.
