This is a well-known love song, the words of which come from a romantic poem written by the English poet and playwright Ben Jonson in 1616. The tune was composed by a Colonel Mellish in about 1770. The singer is the famous 1920s Irish-Australian tenor Alfred O'Shea, and the recording was probably made in the 1920s.
