1. Lord, when I think what a paltery thing
 Is a glove, or a ring, or a top of a fan to brag of;
 And how much a noddy will triumph in a busk point,
 Snatch with the tag off, then I say
 Well fare him that hath ever used close play.

2. And when I see what a pitiful grace
 Hath a frown in the face,
 Or a no in the lips of a lady;
 And when I had wist she would be kiss'd
 When she away did go with hey ho I end so,
 Never trust any woman more than you know.
