Interest ~~ This is the song whose air carries the song "Before the barn door crowing, The cock by hens attended..." in John Gay's The Beggar's Opera, 1728; which in the tradition of ballad opera sets its words to well-known airs of various kinds ~~ from folk, as in this case, to Handel Opera for the song "Let us take the road".
