Don't lay all your love on him: 1887

She was singin' again :—
'Lay your love lichtly, lichtly, lichtly,
Lay your love lichtly on a young man,
An' if he deceive ye, it'll no grieve ye,—
Never lay all your love upon one!'
--From The life and recollections of Dr. Duguid--

The best love songs are about restraint, or about giving in; about everything being great, or everything being a disaster.
