Original text and translations
In all her steps, in each enchanting eye,
In ev'ry gesture, see what beauties lie.
Although a cook, she's by an artist loved,
And kitchen stuff and fat his passion moved.
She to him declares his praise she'll never tell,
The views of Greece engrave he ne'er so well.
Spoiler: revealed phrase "What beauties! Grease and gravy"
