Say what is that, more wish’d than fame,
Or more than riches sought;
More courted than the loveliest dame,
Too often dearly bought.
By every sex, in ev’ry age,
With mad desire pursued;
By young, by old, by fool, by sage,
By wicked and by good.
My first is a name given oft to a beau
My second a fish each good housewife should know
It would not afford any lover surprise
If my whole should be found in the fair one’s bright eyes.
